Speeches woven with spiritual references, family values, small government, abortion, and traditional marriage was what was on the menu last night at the Iowa Faith and Freedom GOP Presidential Forum as over 1000 right wing “christian activist” gathered to listen to 6 of the 8 Republican presidential candidates vying for the hearts of “so called” social conservatives
Rick Perry took a shot at Herman Cain, in which Cain said that families should be able to abort a pregnancy in instances of incest and rape. “It is a liberal canard to say, ‘I am personally pro-life, but government should stay out of that decision,’ ” Perry said. “That is not pro-life. That is pro-having-your-cake-and-eating-it-too.” (What a douche)
Ron Paul went so far to say that he would see Roe v. Wade repealed and that he would remove the Federal Government from the equation entirely and would stand on “States rights” to make the decisions.
Paul stumped using Bible as his text (How cliche’). Saying that we must return to those basic principals and get the Federal Government and taxes out of people lives and to stop giving entitlements.
But it might have been better if Ron Paul actually read the Bible first because my bible doesn’t support multi-national capitalist companies. Rather it says greed is a sin (1 Corinthians 6:10). The Bible doesn’t even say we should oppose taxes. Christ told his followers to pay them (Mark 12:17).
Also the first church was pure Communism. In Acts 2:44-45 we read “All who believed were together and had all things in common; and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need.” Sounds a lot like Karl Marx’s famous statement about Communism when he wrote that it would take “from each according to his ability to each according to his need.”
