Ron Paul Takes Swipes at GOP Rivals, Says Michele Bachmann ‘Hates Muslims’
ABC ^ | December 17, 2011 | Jason M. Volack

Ron Paul has gone Hollywood.

Appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Friday, the presidential hopeful took a swipe at his GOP rivals telling the crowd that Michele Bachmann “hates Muslims.”

When asked by host Jay Leno what he thought of his rivals, Paul shook his head, slowed his voice and said, “she doesn’t like Muslims, she hates them, she wants to go get ‘em” — in reference to the comments Bachmann has made on the campaign trail over her willingness to attack Iran over its suspected nuclear program.

Bachmann, who is campaigning today in Iowa, rejected Paul’s comments.

“Of course I don’t hate Muslims,” Bachmann told ABC News adding “that’s an absolutely outrageous statement.”

...“With all due respect to my colleague, I think Ron Paul would make a very dangerous president because he doesn’t understand this threat,” Bachmann added.

The comment was especially surprising for Paul, who up until now has shied away from personal attacks.

The comment even left the audience and host Jay Leno momentarily stunned.

In reference to Rick Santorum, Paul said he can’t stop talking about “gay people and Muslims.”

.....Paul used the rare late night appearance to elaborate on some of his libertarian leaning positions such as getting rid of federal drug laws in favor of state regulations.

...Paul walked out to a standing ovation by the mainly youthful audience. The fact wasn’t lost on Leno who noted that he drew lots of support from young people.

“Young people are principled,” said Paul adding that “after a while you get mixed up.”

Paul added that the federal government should “protect the right to do with our own body what we want.”

....The Congressman again said he has “no intention” of running on a third party ticket but added he hasn’t ruled it out.

Would anyone want Ron Paul to operate on them.

Probably not.

He delivered a lot of babies.

He also delivers a scary political platform.

>>You are judged by the company you keep.<<

So we should take seriously the LaRaza Rick moniker? Would that also make Perry a Muslim?

You're nothing if not predictable.

Gov Rick Perry spoke to LaRaza about the drug cartels, shared responsibility of border security and that it is Washington's responsibility to secure the border -- that the Federal government should support the military, deliver the mail and secure the border -- and they aren't doing their job. [HE RECEIVED a lot of applause] He spoke of the money Texas spends securing the border, that it must be sealed and then we can sustain legitimate commerce...He told about protecting the sanctity of the vote and strengthening our shared values, family, faith, hard work -- they are TEXAS values and we should unite as citizen's of one Nation under God and concentrate on what unites us. He told his Cuervo joke and they found it funny unlike the Liberal Latino Leaders Give Perry Lukewarm Response (or more likely they'd heard it before).

"Ron Paul Takes Swipes at GOP Rivals, Says Michele Bachmann ‘Hates Muslims’"

"Nothing wrong with that in my book."

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another - Jesus (John 13:34)

But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. - Jesus (Luke 6:27-28)

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. - Romans 12:14

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. - Romans 12:21

If you are not a Christian, then I guess it's fine to hate Muslims. *shrug* But if you are a Christian, maybe all of us Christians should check our hearts, and make sure we are following what Jesus commanded?

If you want people to stop being Muslims and become Christians (I don't know about you but that's what I want!) then hating them and bashing them constantly is not quite the best approach to get them to come running to Christ. Here, please listen to the words of Ravi Zacharias in this video:

Pss 3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set [themselves] against me round about.
Pss 3:7 Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies [upon] the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

Pss 6:7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

Pss 6:10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return [and] be ashamed suddenly.

Pss 9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
Pss 9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
Pss 9:4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.

Pss 18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
Pss 18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
Pss 18:39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
Pss 18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
Pss 18:41 They cried, but [there was] none to save [them: even] unto the Lord, but he answered them not.
Pss 18:42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

It’s funny how RONULANS ignore what was actually said, too...

“Of course I don’t hate Muslims,” Bachmann told ABC News adding “that’s an absolutely outrageous statement.”

Jim, you're using the thoughts of David in Psalms to counter what Jesus said about loving one another? Seriously?

I honestly don't want to be too hard on you, or judge you, because God knows that I am FAR from being a 'good' Christian myself. (I've got a LONG ways to go.) But what I said earlier about being a witness really is undeniable. A person is not going to convert anyone from Islam to Christianity if they are filled with rage, hatred, bitterness, and a constant desire for vengeance. As I said, no Muslims are going to come running to Christ if that is what they see from Christians. And understandably so.

Just a reminder for all of us.

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. - 1 Corinthians 13:1-6

I don’t hate muslims, I just don’t want to be beheaded by them.
