I don't think religious views (even alternative ones, like those of Scientology) were ever a part of this Suisse Saga. And I don't just mean with Herr Hofmann (aka Rainer II, the real "Carmen Sandiego" type character here) but even with Herr Harnecker. AFAIK, said "Rainer I" claimed 2B a great holistic healer (including of cancer) and motivator, but never said he was a messenger of Jesus, etc.

But many don't need to fear such repression. The main reasons they generally avoid politics are probably not to risk pissing off sponsors, and because (even if personally on the left) they don't want to pay for than the least taxes possible.

Among former players, Martina I has been a fairly active Democrat re. American politics, and Marissa Irvin went to work as an intern in the (George W Bush) White House after her retirement.
