Below is an e-mail the Paul campaign sent for me informing voters on Dr. Paul’s faith. It insinuates that I’m a Baptist. We attend a non-denominational church, however, we are in agreement on key issues with our Baptist friends.
Dear Liberty Activist,
As a Christian, I firmly believe a man’s faith and his values are something we need to take into deep consideration when choosing the next President of the United States.
Earlier this week, I decided to endorse Ron Paul because, like me, Ron Paul is a Baptist and a man of deep Christian faith.
Of course, Ron Paul doesn’t always talk about his faith, because he doesn’t want to seem like he’s exploiting it for political gain.
So today, I’m writing you to tell you a little bit about the Ron Paul I’ve gotten to know.
Ron Paul is married to his high school sweetheart, Carol, and together they have 5 children and 18 grandchildren.
Ron Paul is an Air Force Veteran, having proudly served our country as a Flight Surgeon in the Air Force and in the Air National Guard.
While in the military, Ron Paul took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. As a member of Congress, he’s taken a similar oath, with one hand on the Bible and the other held high.
And as a Christian, an oath to God is something that Ron Paul takes seriously.
That’s why, during his entire time in Congress, Ron Paul has NEVER voted for a single piece of legislation that wasn’t expressly authorized by the Constitution.
That’s because Ron Paul doesn’t just “talk the talk” but truly lives his faith.
For example, as a medical doctor, Ron Paul had two rules in his office.
First, absolutely NO abortions. Second, his office refused to accept any federal funds.
But Dr. Paul didn’t turn patients away. Instead, he treated them for discounted prices, and if they couldn’t afford that, he treated them for FREE.
That’s because Ron Paul understands that we are commanded to love our neighbor as ourselves in Mark 12:31.
In fact, a few weeks ago, a Texas man named James Williams told a touching story to the national media about how back in the 1970s, his wife had a complication with her pregnancy, and was having trouble finding medical care.
Ron Paul gave them free medical care, and he never even sent them a bill of any kind for his services.
When asked about it in a news interview, Ron Paul didn’t recall the story. That’s because Ron Paul did these types of things all the time.
That’s just the type of man Ron Paul is and always has been.
As a Congressman, he doesn’t participate in the lucrative Congressional pension program. He’s never voted to increase his own salary. He’s never taken a government-paid junket, and he returns a portion of his budget back to the Treasury Department every year.
Earlier, I mentioned how Ron Paul believes in a strict adherence to the Constitution and understands that national defense is the primary and most important function of our federal government.
That’s why he voted for the use of force in Afghanistan after 9-11, and he supported going after Osama bin Laden and other terrorist leaders.
Our troops understand that Ron Paul knows what it takes to keep America safe, which is why he has received more contributions from members of the military than all other Republican candidates – COMBINED.
You see, when it comes to foreign policy, Ron Paul isn’t saying that we should never go to war.
All Ron Paul is saying is that members of Congress should take their constitutional oath to God seriously, and if war is necessary, we should follow the Constitution and declare it, fight it, win it, and come home.
The Ron Paul I know is a humble man of deep Christian faith.
And I’m sure you agree that with the state of moral decline our nation is currently in, we need an evangelical Christian man in the White House to turn our country around.
Ron Paul is that man.
So when you go to the polls tomorrow, January 21, I hope you’ll join me in voting for one of our fellow Brothers in Christ, Ron Paul.
P.S. I’ve recently gotten to know Congressman Ron Paul on a personal level, and I can tell you that, like me, Ron Paul is a Baptist Christian man of deep faith.
