Amazing evangelical endorsement from the president and founder of the Military Bible Association!

Just read through this article posted on Christian News Wire:

Ron Paul Receives Major Evangelical Endorsement from Dr. James Linzey, President of Military Bible Association

It sends the message to the primary voters of SC that the good Dr. should have their support from an evangelical and military standpoint.

We have to get this out!

In a statement to Congressman Paul, Rev. Linzey stated: "Having thoroughly examined your political philosophy and finding that your platform is 100% in line with the Constitution of the United States of America, and examining your political record to find that you have consistently upheld the Constitution and thereby faithfully represented your constituency, and studying your statement of faith to find that your faith and religious experience is 100% compatible with Evangelical Christianity and Orthodox Christianity, I hereby endorse you for the Office of the President of the United States of America. I wish you Godspeed!"

Sunshine State News: Ron Paul Wins the Backing of a Major Evangelical Leader

Linzey, who served almost two and a half decades as a military chaplain said if former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, the frontrunner for the Republican nomination, emerges as the GOP candidate, he would cheerfully support him-- but he would prefer Paul.

"Governor Romney is an excellent debater, but Congressman Paul is a better one from my perspective,” Linzey said. “He argues from the standpoint of the Constitution, often showing his opponents' positions to be unfounded and unconstitutional.”

Dr. James Linzey Supports Ron Paul

Here's another tremendous new article getting the vote out, supporting Ron Paul and explaining what Ron Paul stands for:

Evangelical Leader Dr. Jim Linzey Appeals to Americans to Support Ron Paul for President in 2012


Should Evangelicals Take Another Look at Ron Paul?

Here's another great article regarding Ron paul and Evangelicals


To the Deist

Would Ron Paul also have to procreate with a slave, advocate state funded universities, and read by candlelight to be a neo Jefferson? I've heard James Linzey as a guest on Christian Evangelical radio shows, so your claim that no one in SC would recognize who he is or respect his views is demonstrably false. Why don't you stick to worrying about deist endorsements and let Christians worry about Christian endorsements? Go with what you know.


Can't wipe the smile off my face. This and Rand's story today had me calling "unfriendlies" to refute their opinions.

There REALLY is momentum here.

Just beaming...,eh ... :D



You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

It would be great if printed copies

Of this endorsement were to show up at churches in South Carolina this Sunday (hint)

I'm a Christian

But it wouldn't matter to me if Rev. Linzey were a Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Atheist, etc, etc. It's what he said in his endorsement that should be the most important thought in the mind of every single American voter, including us, namely: the tell-tale sign of being qualified for the presidency is not faith, but loyalty to the Constitution which defends the open expression of faith. Ron Paul seems to be the candidate most loyal to the Constitution...

You nailed it.

Ron Paul keeping the Constitution alive while the two parties try to strangle it. The great Dr. will revive it. Thank you Rev. Linzey. Now please make sure your followers go out and vote.


I emailed him a thank you note

His email is at the top of the article.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Just emailed him too

Good suggestion pawnstorm12.


Ron Paul is not responsible for the character of his supporters.

This endorsement will help with those who like Linzey. They are the most likely to hear about it.

Most voters will never hear about it and will be unaffected.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.



Your comment is very cryptic. Could you please tell us EXACTLY what you are trying to say, and substantiate it???

I was responding to DP users/commenters

who said Dr. Linzey was unsavory in some regard. I plead ignorance of the facts but if there are some who think Linzey might be a turnoff I was countering that those who think highly of Linzey will hear about the endorsement while those who are unimpressed with him likely won't be aware of it.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Don't be so scared of people

Don't be so scared of people that hold different beliefs. We know how it feels to be called names so lets try and refrain from doing it to others.

We all share different views but we are united on the core and Rev. Linzey is with us on that.

The Military Quaran Association Endorses...

Realize that's how the Military Bible Association sounds to a billion people around the world.

Ron would get more support if he came out as a full Deist who declared (like gravity) evolution is indeed real. Pandering to evangelicals and allowing religion to mix with government is bad from Santorum to dictators in the Middle East.

Jefferson was a deist. Libertarians shouldn't believe in religion. The government lies. The Church used to be the government. Think about it.

I'm more of a deist myself,

I'm more of a deist myself, but this is a really stupid comment for multiple reasons. Ron Paul is not being dishonest about his religious beliefs.

Exactly how is it wrong?

I didn't say he was being dishonest. But if he was the modern day Thomas Jefferson he would be a deist.

And don't you think the "Military Bible Association" sounds bad?

EDIT- Oh the Army of Christians are offended so they downvote me but they can't disprove 1 thing I wrote. Jefferson was a deist. Stop mixing religion with liberty.

To Pokerlibertarian

You stand for libertarian values? REALLY???? I don't think so. Who are you to criticize one's liberty in founding Military Bible Association??? Who are you to criticize one's freedom to choose his name of his corporation?

How would you like to be criticized for YOUR right to exist? When the rubber meets the road, you are not a libertarian.

we don't want his endorsement!

This needs to be taken off the front page. First, most Evangelicals have never heard of this man, James Linzey. Second, he is an anti-semitic conspiracy theorist kook: http://www.talk2action.org/story/2009/6/10/17129/0387

Please be more careful and Google these things before promoting them.

COUNTER: Read comment beneath smear article:

Evangelist James F. Linzey is Not Anti-Semitic (none / 0)
August 15, 2009 Dear Bruce Wilson, Evangelist James F. Linzey is not anti-Semitic and does not believe in conspiracy theories. Evangelist James F. Linzey has consistently combatted not only anti-Semitism, but also racism, wherever he has found it. Evangelist Jim Linzey is deeply associated with numerous pro-Jewish organizations and causes. Simply researching the facts and speaking with Evangelist Jim Linzey would have found out these facts. You have not shown one time or a pattern of anti-Semitic activity by Rev. Linzey. Anti-Semitism is not compatible with evangelical Christianity and Rev. Linzey's expression of it. Jesus Christ was a Jew. You have failed to point out anything to substantiate your belief ... (continue)

We Do Want Dr. Linzey's Endorsement

As one who is very familiar with Dr. Linzey's ministry and a supporter of Ron Paul, have you stated one thing Dr. Linzey said that was anti-Semitic? No, you failed and cannot not. That makes you the "kook."

You have read the words of one who on his blog site states that he is pro-homosexual, pro-lesbian, and pro-abortionist, and represents the religious left. They routinely bash in Dr. John Hagee who is pro-Jewish as is Dr. Linzey, making the blogger a CRYPTO-RACIST, libeling those as racist who fight against racism the most.

Read this:


Your comment reflects ignorance and is most arrogant!

Mixed bag it seems, at worst


He may have some questionable views I need to look in to, but appears he's also got a pretty good record in public service, as well.

And I've heard the name before (tickling the edge of my mind), so I'm pretty sure my (very evangelical) grandmother and extended family will have as well, and this will likely carry weight. She likes Bush, but also likes Paul (weird, huh??), and I can only see this helping - at least without further research.

And, distasteful on the fore as it may be, I don't think SOME of the jewish banker claims are too far off the mark anyway, although I will only touch the very surface of that as far as deals with control of the economy and world banking.

He has a good record at lying to people

And preying on their emotions to enrich himself. He has a good record of being a shining beacon of the Dark Ages. A good record of taking the pursuit of knowledge and anthropomorphizing it as an evil immortal being. He's spectacular at insulting human reason, logic and science.

Pop quiz-

Who created the first international banking system? Christian Crusaders.

Who built up JPMorgan, owns a large part of the NY Fed and funded the CFR and dozens of other collectivist policy groups? A Christian.

Stop blaming one group for a problem that all human beings engage, enable and support. Read a history book if you want to know why Jews are associated with money lending, the discrimination against them from owning private property, the Church's anti-usury laws etc etc.

Just so we're clear -

I'm also a christian, so your pontificating about the christian view of Satan (even if I feel it's also somewhat incorrect, for different theological reasons) being a perversion of the human search for knowledge (which I find to be an ignorant view in the first place, as mankind IS prone to a whole range of wickedness, perversities, and abuses) isn't really doing much for me, friend.

As well, the Knights Templar inventing international banking isn't necessarily a bad thing - the international bankers of today, however, who have wrapped their tentacles around the world and play both sides in pretty much ever conflict, however, are an out-and-out scourge on humanity.

For clarity, "christian" does not necessarily mean one follows the tenets of Chris, nor does a christian founder of a currently-terrible organization share the blame for such (I have not researched his history in depth as yet, so will currently withhold judgement).

I'm not blaming just one group for these problems - and I really don't want to delve into any conspiracy realms here, honestly, but I know the Rothschilds ARE one of the top dogs in the game.

Admitted - I don't really get into any of this one a regular basis so have no idea how many, if any, of the other big families are jewish, so perhaps I'll give you that point and admit I should have left it at the top-level world bankers in general not being an out-of-order 'conspiracy' view.

As far as jewish stereotypes as such...I may look into that. Other than a few key families (possibly), I'm not under the impression it's got much credence, more so than anyone else, anyway.

My apologies for implying anything beyond this, I have no issues with jews in general...beyond wishing the Israel situation wasn't such a quagmire of he-said/she-said bad decisions on both sides, with Israel seeming to come down worst there from what little bit I've actually seen on it.

Take care.


I realize I offend people with some sharp words against religion. I see what religion does in Africa and the Middle East and I wish it were different.

I think people use religion to justify war, bad laws and big government. I've read the Bible, partly in Hebrew, I wish it were true but I don't see the evidence.

Credible sources say the Rothschild family was/is worth trillions. They are more into investment banking than commercial banking as far as I know. They've profited off war and done bad things, but I don't blame them.

I overly defend Jews because I think the topic is irrelevant and hurts us politically. I'm against Judaism like all religions and fractional reserve banking. I'm into all the obscure facts and truth, I just think we have to be careful since we are trying to win elections with for the liberty movement.

I definitely understand the frustration.

Religion HAS been used as an excuse for a lot of bad things - but so have lots of other things. The problem is that religion is an ideology, and man has latched on to almost every ideology throughout history as a means of directing the supporters of such to their whims and securing the involved influence and resources. Eliminate religion from this world, and you will have no fewer atrocities - just different excuses.

To be fair, faithful believers actually obeying the tenets of their various faiths (or other ideologies, if non-religious in nature) have also done a lot of good throughout history. Enough to balance out the bad examples - well, I can not say.

As to your believing and seeing evidence - if you ever want to talk about it off-forum just hit me up, otherwise I'll leave that between you and him. :) The main goal for all of us in this life otherwise is to make it as pleasant a journey and our time here as much of a blessing for others as possible, as I see it.

As to the Rothschilds - eh. Again, I don't want to delve into it, tonight at least. And defense of the jews is understandable and honorable, as long as they are treated equal to everyone else and given no free passes for their own faults, as should be no one else. We'll disagree on this, but I personally like judaism myself, as I'm a hebraic-roots kind of christian who tends to see too many issues with what my own faith/religion has become...too much drift from what the founder intended. That seems to be a common thing, no?

And yes, being careful is definitely wise, my original intent on thread was just to point out that this may be a good thing with at least some christians who are familiar with him, and he does have a decent record aside from some of the points you brought up - which, when were on topic - were fair points.

Thanks and have a good night, friend.

don't be afraid

just because there are things someone does that we don't agree with... doesn't mean we shouldn't listen to him.

he stated 3 reasons why he supports ron paul, and that is his endorsement.

I just skimmed that article at Talk2action.

I don't see any immediate reason to be concerned about Linzey. The article has this quote:

In 1983, the charge that Rothschild banks and other international banking concerns, mostly with Jewish names, controlled the Federal Reserve was published (probably from earlier sources) in the newsletter of a local Pennsylvania chapter of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) -- not an extremist group. The article stated that the Federal Reserve System "is not a Federal entity but a private corporation owned in part by the following: Rothschild banks of London and Berlin, Lazard Brothers bank of Paris, Israel Moses Seif banks of Italy, Warburg bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam, Lehman Bros. bank of New York, Chase Manhattan bank of New York, Kuhn, Loeb bank of New York, Goldman Sachs bank of New York."

There is nothing awry in this quote. I don't care if the Rothschilds or owners of the Fed are Jews. Completely irrelevant.

But know this, that folks LIKE RON PAUL, are frequently called anti Semitic kooks. It's just routine smear by the opponents of freedom. You should know this.

So if this guy, Linzey, is getting smeared, that probably means he's a good guy!!

Besides, do you really think the big-name, mainstream dumbed down Christian minister pundits will endorse Ron Paul? Very doubtful, even though he is exactly whom they want in a politician. No, the prominent Christian "influencer" orgs have been taken over by the Establishment long, long ago.

No mainstream endorsements will ever come, and if they do, they will be for evil men like Santorum or Newt, who has been born again, or the wolf in sheep's clothes, Rick Perry. I'm just waiting for him to be pushed as a front runner again.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

David Rockefeller is a Christian

Debate over.

It's a historical and cultural thing. Jewish parents pressure their kids to be lawyers, bankers, doctors. And historically they were forbidden to own property and became money lenders, also because the Church's anti-usury laws.

rockefeller is not a Christian. Jesus says we shall know them by their fruit. This is the second post I have seen you post where you claim that the person being talked about is not what they are. Oh ya Bigscrew brezinsky... Take your trolling else where. Its getting old.

Take your Anti-semitism Elsewhere

Rockefeller is 100% a Christian.

Who cares what the Bible says. Separation of church and state. WHY DO WE CARE ABOUT RELIGION!?

Oh and I defended Zbigniew for being a critic of the wars. Oh my, I have rational thoughts and not knee jerk reactions to people I'm told I'm supposed to hate. Religious zealot conspiracy theorists don't help Ron Paul.

Please Point Out the Anti-Semitism. It's In Your Head


State what Dr. Linzey said that was anti-Semitic. Who are you calling anti-Semitic and on what basis???? You have no basis. I am amazed at those who study the various viewpoints but believe CRAP dished out by homosexuals and lesbians and abortionists against Evagelical leaders such as Dr. Linzey so people would not believe his Constitutional views.
