Rand Paul's Message To Evangelicals: "There is a war on Christianity"
I'm starting to warm to Rand Paul more and more.
Senator Rand Paul, who is seriously considering running for President of the United States, told a conservative Christian audience today that, "There is a war on Christianity" being waged by "liberal elites' and "worldwide as well.
Part of his speech (read the whole thing).
There is a war on Christianity, not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide.And your government, or more correctly, you, the taxpayer, are funding it.You are being taxed to send money to countries that are not only intolerant of Christians but openly hostile. Christians are imprisoned and threatened with death for their beliefs.In Pakistan, Asia Bibi, a Christian, sits on death row. Her crime, according to her, is that she dared to drink from a glass that belonged to a Muslim co-worker.According to her co-workers, she insulted the Prophet. In our country, we refer to such quibbling as gossip. In Pakistan, if you are a Christian, it can land you on death row.Recently, in Pakistan, a 12-year-old with Downs syndrome was imprisoned and charged with a death penalty crime for burning the Koran.After weeks she was released after a local Imam was accused of actually sprinkling pages from an Arabic book into a fire near the little girl.
