Christian Leader to Santorum Supporters: Vote for Ron Paul

Submitted by ChristianNewsWire on Apr 11, 2012

SAN JOSE, CA -- "Many Christians are disappointed that Rick Santorum suspended his campaign, but God still has plans for the USA. By seeking Him we can find His plans," says Pastor Steven Andrew, President of USA Christian Ministries. The pastor calls churches and individual Christians to join him and fast and pray every Wednesday for God's intervention to help the USA.

He believes God wants a government and nation after God's own heart.

"After Santorum, then Ron Paul is the most God-fearing Presidential candidate that the Republican party should endorse (Exodus 18:21)," he says. "If Republicans don't give a Christian candidate, Christians should look elsewhere - even to a third party."

Did anyone watch the video?

Did anyone watch the video? This guy's voice and tone puts you in a trance.

I thought religious figures

I thought religious figures making political endorsements was verboten, as in IRS-verboten.

Here's an idea for christians

Here's an idea for christians here: OneNewsNow needs to be educated, please forward them the above message. I got tired of seeing Romney promoted thru them and sent them the link to this man's video and reminded them they will stand before God for leading others astray. Let's bombard them with emails and let our voices be heard.

Santorum is God-fearing?

Santorum is God-fearing? Ha!

How can people be so blind?

We need all the help we can

We need all the help we can get.. anything to get Ron Paul closer to the White House i'm ok with.

How much Campaign spends per delegate?

I do not see the campaign spend money on delegates. As far as I know as I am closely involved in Georgia as a delegate, all the expenses in becoming and staying engaged as delegates are paid by ourselves. The national campaign did not have to put ads out to motivate RP supporters to be delegate. Where in the world and how are they calculating the $ spent per delegate?! It has been reported state wide (majority of the counties) there were violation of Robert Rule of Orders by establishment's concerted effort to exclude Paul supporters. That's when legal representation is most crucial to win the fight. No. National campaign did not contribute to legal fight at all. We secured attorneys on our own! We write appeals on our own.

We are supporters who have a lot of initiatives and drive. The national campaign did not spend money on us in the delegate process but did send us some campaign materials prior to primary. The delegate organization effort starts from the state coordinator and implemented at the local level by county coordinators then district coordinators. We work by grassroot efforts to engage, recruit, train, strategize delegates/alternates effort - all by ourselves completely voluntarily. For Doug Wead to say they spend a lot per delegate, I don't get it. The credential fee we have to pay in GA if selected as national delegate/alt is $400/person. In addition to that, we pay hotel, rental car, flights, meals. It is in the neighborhood of $2500-$4000 depend on whether you want to be super economical or not.

We will have to have a grassroots money bomb

that helps fund our RNC delegates.

We have to recognize Santorum

We have to recognize Santorum for standing up to gays. Many people recognize that homosexuality is not a normal state and should be treated as such. Santorum brought up this issue and he took a lot of criticism by the establishment. However, when it comes to foreign policy Santorum was clearly inconsistent with his principles. Catholic principles are opposed to preemptive wars. The Catholic leadership in Rome spoke up against the Iraq war. Santorum is just picking and choosing what is convenient for him. In this topic he is not a principled man.

May I say as a heterosexual ex-Catholic

that there is considerable division within the church, and especially in the clergy, on the issue of homosexuality. It has been reported that homosexual cliques rule the politics within seminaries. If you are not part of the clique you are discriminated against.

My mom at one time had hopes I would join the priesthood. I'm afraid it was never my idea of an interesting life. However, especially for prior generations, I think the priesthood held serious attraction not only for the pious but for those who had no desire date women, let alone take a wife and raise a family. It permitted them a way to be respected and accepted despite not following the expected pattern. It is clear that not all who opted for the priesthood saved themselves for Christ. Rectories and monasteries became refuges for those who chose an active homosexual lifestyle.

I'm not saying that all ordained priests lust after their own sex, just that, in my mind at least, they are more likely to be so inclined. Now that the gay lifestyle is more publicly acknowledged I think there is less attraction among gays for the priesthood and indeed recruitment to the priesthood is seriously lagging, especially in America.

While the Church doctrine remains opposed to homosexual acts I do not overly credit the church's pronouncements against homosexuality knowing that it winks at the lifestyle within its own ranks. I hate to see any religion living a lie but even more I dislike the two-faced attitude by the Catholic Church that publicly reviles homosexuals. If homosexuality is unnatural it would be hard to find in nature. Yet same-sex sexuality is found widely among animal species. I hope, but do not expect, that someday the Church will acknowledge that God made homosexuals and quit all the pretense.

Everything in nature is okay?

I have nothing against homosexuals; I could care less what they want to do. That being said, I get sick of people saying, because it’s found in nature it’s natural. Ducks rape each other. Monkeys and apes have sex with their children. Interspecies sex is common among many mammals. Praying mantis anyone?

Just because animals do something in nature, doesn’t mean it should be practiced among people.

I'd be OK with nobody being gay

but, knowing what I know of other species, I wouldn't expect ours to be devoid of same-sex orientations. In fact there are many species that are asexual as well -- and all female. On the face of it that would seem to augur poorly for species survival except for the happy fact of virgin births, otherwise known as parthenogenesis. I haven't heard of mammalian or avian species reproducing via parthenogene sis but it is common enough among invertebrates and even found in reptiles and amphibians. The Amazons of Greek mythology could potentially be based in fact.

Why Must Everyone Be "Normal"?

Having a 100% attendance record at one's job ten years running is not normal either.

Who Cares What Happens In Someone's Bedroom

Why do you care one way or another about homosexuality? I'm not going to applaud someone because they are principled if the stance is infringing on people's rights. I get real annoyed when people start fearmongering with statements like "the homos are coming! The homos are coming!" I don't think we are in danger of all becoming gay if we let homosexual people be.

Sometimes, I think the most difficult thing for people to absorb about libertarianism is just letting people alone.

Some people think that gays are pushing an agenda into our faces. What I see is the "in your face" exposure that seems to be necessary to securing a group's civil rights. Look at the black civil rights movement in the 60's. They had to be "out of the closet" so to speak as well. So much so, that cops were repelling them off the streets with firehoses and violence. I would say the strategy worked in terms of getting their civil rights. Now homosexual groups are having to do the same thing to win their equal treatment.

________________________________________

I agree on that whole angle...

Stand up to the gay agenda wherever it is found.

Just don't let the Federal Government "resolve" it as they have never been good at that at all. States can outlaw/legislate everywhere.

In addition to that, stand up to the leaders of the Boy Scouts because they are flat out perverts.

That's why Ron Paul is up by 2: Obama's losing!

THE MAN WHO SHOULD BE PRESIDENT

THE MAN WHO SHOULD BE PRESIDENT

Today, I am going to do something that I have never done: I am going to devote virtually my entire column to posting another man’s words. That man is the man who should be President of the United States: Congressman Ron Paul of Texas.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin is for Ron Paul. Didn't he endorse obammarama the last time around :-)

Keepin' it real.

Chulk Baldwin has always been

Chulk Baldwin has always been quite solid as far as I can tell. Infact I think he would be the perfect person for VP, although it may not go across so well with some athiests since he is a Christian pastor. It should be no problem with athiests since he has the same thinking as Ron Paul about intrusive laws, but just the fact that he is a solid prominate Christian may throw some off.

Chuck Baldwin

was personally endorsed for President by Ron Paul in 2008, after RP din't win the nomination.

He's the furthest thing from an obamaniac that there is.

Nope, Chuck Baldwin did not

Nope, Chuck Baldwin did not support obama last time...he ran for president on the Constitution Party Ticket and from what I remember, it was only after Ron Paul told him he did not mind him doing so.

Yes many have been disappointed that Sanitorium

dropped out. You know it's not easy to find an unconstitutional, liberal, big government catholic running for prez who is just dying to drop bombs on sleeping old people (and women and children) over a bomb their government MIGHT have someday. It's a rare storage locker auction to find one of those! ...especially one willing to pretend he dropped out because of a sick daughter...not to mention the rarity of sleeveless sweater vests and the pricelessness of having a boy like face to hide all that evil...

Bugs in the machine's picture

Good luck appealing to

Good luck appealing to wayward Santorum supporters with that vinegar.

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

Certainly must agree with you...

...it just drives me NUTS that Paul's reality is like a 500 ton rock...yet Santorum supporters are convinced that a 3 ounce pebble is heavier! I was having a bad day and left my manners and charity in a drawer I guess! ...I cringe to see how people fall for fiction. America (as a whole) doesn't believe the truth yet will embrace a lie? Someone like Santorum was happy with killing OVER A MILLION Iraqi over weapons they didn't have and now desires to kill Iranians over a weapon they MIGHT someday have!!! I see Paul's contrast of wanting to live and let live by following the rules...go to war only when needed. Yet people call themselves Christians and still support a liberal warmongering big-gov't candidate? I'll heed your comment and try to replace the vinegar with honey and be more charitable.
...it still makes me crazy and want to kick the cat!
(I don't have a cat so no worry there)

Religion

Leave his religion out of your rants. Santorum is an unconstitutional big government pro-authoritarian candidate. We disagree with him on foreign policy and monetary policy and the scope of liberty. But his system of beliefs has nothing to do with this. I am a Catholic but I don't agree with everything a priest says during a Sunday homily. I think for myself. But your characterization leaves me insulted by your insinuations.

Do you suppose I also offended

people who wear sweater vests too?
Thank God our country is still free enough that we still have the liberty to get offended. I get offended when cars drive around blasting rap "music".
PS (down south we solved the problem of "call no man father" by calling'em "Daddy")
...I had a sweater vest when I was like 14 I believe...

The way I see it?

I have never heard either Ron Paul nor Mitt Romney attack each others religion nor have I ever seen them use their religion as a wedge to attract voters. Rick Santorum was a different story he tried to use his faith as a tool to get him into the white house. I respect both candidates for their beliefs. Even though they are nearly opposite. Romney probably feels like it is his turn as he probably was promised this shot in 2008 to let McCain have a shot then. I never met a southern Baptist, Evangelical or a Morman that treated me any different. I for what it is worth came from a Mennonite background. The mormans are helping people all over the country by showing them how to prep for hard times and providing many things for everyone like family tree information. Many churches do the same thing like help familys in need of food or shelter. That is what religion and America is all about. Let me practice my religion and don't push yours on me and we all get along fine. We all need to band together to beat the Illuminati banking cartel and corporations. The eye at the top of the pyramid on your so called Dollar bill. They are the enemy. That is what we need to focus on. God Bless America. After all we all love the same God even if in different ways.

"Christians should look elsewhere - even to a third party"

Well, this pastor is right on, should paul not get the nominatin (which is likely), then those true christians that are holding out for an honest choice should be given that honest choice, which means someone other than romney and obama running in the general election.

Liberty and Religion

The beautiful thing about Liberty is that it is INCLUSIVE not exclusive.

All people, whether they be religious, non-religious, or anti-religious, can share in its opportunities, benefits and rewards.

Following the U.S. Constitution is the ultimate protection against the infringement of our Liberty.

Santorum Christian backers

are no different than any of us that follow Ron Paul now. I have listened to the media lies and thought it was the truth, but now I know better. Most Christians are oblivious to the fact that our way of life in this country comes on the backs of many peasants in poor countries. We would never have the cheap fruits and veggies in the stores if we didn't have dictators keeping them in line. When a country dares to become freer our government will make sure the new president knows we are in control.

All we need is for the Christians to give Ron Paul an honest look, they will realize there can be no other.

A little torn

I must admit, I'm a little torn by this sort of thing. On the one hand, I do want people to support Ron Paul, and I agree that Ron Paul is a better Christian than Romney and all that. But on the other hand, I am always a little annoyed when people insist that you shouldn't vote for Romney because he's a Mormon (yes, I'm also a mormon).

Truth be told, if Romney strictly followed the teachings of our church and it's leaders in his politics, you would hardly be able to tell the difference between him and Ron Paul.

"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him?" -Thomas Jefferson

All the more reason for all

All the more reason for all Mormons to totally reject Romney, since he is standing as a representative for them. Just like all Christians should strongly reject Rick Stantorum, since he is representing Christians as people who are so fearful that they need a tyrant who would START wars and tell people what they should put in their bodies and do in their bedroom.

You go ask your fellow Mormons what they are thinking backing the fool.

We can be thankful that we have someone like Ron Paul that can statisfy Mormons and Christians and athiests. All without compromising or pandering, but with truth, integrity, and justice for all.

I like the bible quote: "But

I like the bible quote: "But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens."

It's not the word of God per se. It's advice to Moses from his father-in-law Jethro on how to ease the strain of being the judiciary of all the Israelites by appointing judges. It apparently worked out well.

But it seems equally good advice to the population for picking a presidential candidate to support. And given the current crop of candidates the choice is clear. B-)
