Comment: I think...

I think...

...it makes the Daily Paul more interesting to hear folks explain the philosophies behind their political stances. It doesn't bother me at all to see the multitude of agnostic/atheist threads challenging theism or to see theists respond. I don't buy the idea that Dr. Paul would not defend his Christian views if they were directly questioned. He certainly didn't hesitate during the campaign to give speeches elaborating on things like the biblical accounts of the local governing of the Israelites by judges giving way to the centralized authority of a king, etc. More recently, he didn't shy away from quoting Christ's 'He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword' statement in the wake of Chris Kyle's death, reflecting on unintended consequences that ripple out from imprudent foreign policy.

My view is that Liberty is dead if it is not nourished and upheld by something deeper (Love), so I am all for openly discussing, in a polite and courteous manner, what other people see as their own personal wellsprings that drive their visions of Liberty. Stripping that away and leaving mainly discussion of dry, political machinations would be disappointing.
