I have to say I didn't see any kind of attack on Christianity here ... I think Dr. Paul's intention was rather a general statement that political decisions by voters and governments need to be judged on substance, not blind faith. It's a good message, that maybe needed a little bit more of a preamble to make sense to others.

I misspoke (miswrote?) last night when I said Ron Paul doesn't think religious values should influence policy. What I should have said is Ron Paul acknowledges the religious inflence behind the American Constitution, but he believes the church and state should have a competitive relationship and that the dynamic between them acts as a buffer against totalitarianism. He believes it is the role of religion to teach morality and civility and the role of govenment to facilitate trade and commerce.

Do you ever listen to Hugh Hewitt show? You've no right to call him a loony when you dont even listen to his show that is 100% full of intellectual stuff and have guests from all over the political spectrum. Yes, Ron Paul is a nutcase for things he says and his loony supporters but Mr. Hewitt is not one. Get your facts straight before posting here.


Your personal opinion is not a FACT
:wink:
