Paul Meets Quietly with Evangelicals

n the wake of Sen. Rick Santorum's departure from the presidential race there are signs that some evangelical leaders are refusing to jump on board the Mitt Romney bandwagon and are turning to Congressman Ron Paul instead.

The Texas congressman spoke to several thousand people last night at the Will Rogers Auditorium in downtown Fort Worth but met quietly afterward with evangelical leaders.

Why Ron Paul? And why now, when the race is being declared "done" by the mainstream media?

"Because you don't give away your support without getting something in return," says a former congressman who has been at the heart of the Christian right movement since its beginning. The longer that Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich stay in the race, the more likely that Romney will be forced to take an evangelical conservative as his vice presidential nominee.

evangelical, awesome speaker, and Paul supporter, Voddie Baucham, would be an asset to the campaign to help reach Christians for Ron Paul.

Newt Gingrich...evangelicl conservative...give me a break! I am so tired of them trying to sell this nonsense.

The evangelicals need to focus on the Gospel not politics. Having a godly man as president (Ron Paul, for example) and vice-president would be wonderful and certainly a welcome change.

Integrity and character matter.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul
