Another reason they don't support Dr. Paul

is because he doesn't grovel at AIPAC's feet.

In fact, Ron Paul speaks out against ALL foreign aid to ALL nations.

That doesn't sit well with the Hagee crowd who thinks we ought to commit suicide as a nation in order to blanket Israel with armaments and other funding.

How is going into massive debt Biblical, my fellow Christians?

Where in the Bible does God advocate destroying your own nation in order to support another?

I am a Christian, and I am fully fed up with the course the Christian so-called "leadership" has taken regarding foreign policy, etc.




It's all about the "Hagee Christians" waiting on Armageddon. Fully funded and supported by the Israel Lobby. They too are embarrassed by this support wing, but must go along with the charade because the huge Southern Baptist money clout. The TV preachers will not get TV airtime if they don't play along with the charade.

"Give a man a gun, and he could rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he could rob the world."

They most likely choose Huckabee

We must strive to get these people to think for themselves , to be prolife should also include the lives of our soldiers and the citizens of other nations that are being treated like animals .......... why is it so hard to convince them of this .


Suddendly the MSM covers the results as a big story just now with a Romney-Huckabee win. Pathetic and so predictable.

The real story - Undecided 329 5.70%. Wow, real confidence in the annointed ones...

"Give a man a gun, and he could rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he could rob the world."

Agreed...these are not men

Agreed...these are not men of G-d, but rather practitioners of war. These hypocrite 'evangelicals' are giving decent Christians, who are truly pro-life (opposing abortion AND war), a bad name. I do not wish to live in a theocracy.

I'm so afraid they'll go with Huckabee

I voted, but my husband's vote wouldn't go through.

I heard the "leader" of the Southern Baptist Convention on Anderson 360 last night seeming to consider Hunter or Huckabee. It really irks me that the main "drawback" of Dr. Paul for my fellow Christians is his opposition to using force on other countries.

By the way, the "leadership" of the Southern Baptist Convention never reflects mainstream SB's. The way it's set-up politically is that the only way to unseat the leadership is for people to get really fed up during a crisis which means it always reflects a pendulum swing. Right now, they are calling it the "conservative" leadership, but that's more a matter of how the current "leadership" defines "conservative". Since the organization itself has little to do with everyday Southern Baptist congregations, it's hard to get people really riled up, but the "leadership" sure does push it.

The problem with this in terms of an under the breath endorsement for Huckabee is that the average Southern Baptist isn't aware of the problems in its leadership so they might go "Hey, I'm one of those. Huckabee, hmm..."

Defend Liberty!

The Pharisees

They are not men of God. They obtain and keep these "Christian leadership" positions for their own personal gains.
