Over 120 Pastors & Christian Leaders Stand with Todd

St. Louis, MO: Today the Akin campaign released a list of over 120 pastors and Christian leaders who are publicly standing with Todd Akin. Some had previously signed their name, but many are voicing their support for the first time. These religious figures from every region of the state have decided to place their personal and very public support behind Congressman Todd Akin in his race for the United States Senate seat this year. The endorsement statement released was as follows:

We the undersigned do hereby affirm/reaffirm our continued support of Congressman Todd Akin for the office of United States Senate. We know his character and his conservative convictions. Furthermore, we accept fully his apology and his request for forgiveness. As stated in our previous endorsement: “We greatly appreciate his long standing commitment to our God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and his proven record of defending life, traditional marriage, religious liberty, the Second Amendment, free enterprise, limited government, fiscal responsibility and a strong national defense.”

It is for such reasons as these, that we the undersigned affirm/reaffirm our personal support and continue to encourage our fellow Missourians to support Congressman Todd Akin as our next United States Senator.

I’ve put this press release from the Todd Akin campaign in Front Page News since I think the names of the pastors deserve to get immediate attention, and the story may end up waiting a day until reporters get around to covering it in a version to which I can link. The title is original.

If it needs to go somewhere else (extended news, religion forum, etc), please accept my apologies.

Ping.

There are some major Missouri names on this list of regional or local significance. Most are Baptists with a few Presbyterian, Lutheran, Assemblies of God, and other names, plus a number of people from Concerned Women for America and other conservative women's organizations.

It looks like Akin is now totally invested in this and is not going to back down. After the RNC chairman's “not one penny” comment, it looks like we're going to have a fight between politically active social issues conservatives — sometimes called “Tea-vangelicals” — and the Republican leadership.

I don't see any way to avoid this war now.

And no, I'm not happy and I'm not looking forward to this fight.

I think the guy’s heart was in the right place, so I suppose I could work up some sorrow for him, but he has been in politics long enough to avoid this type of situation. I agree, it is harder if you’re stupid. Decent call...

Yep. I knew of Stormer from secular conservative politics long before I moved to Missouri. I did not realize he was still actively writing until the local Christian school where my niece attends started handing out copies of his more recent books.

There is some serious firepower on this list. I think the Republican National Committee picked a fight that is not going to help the Republican Party.

It’s not only secular Tea Party people who can get angry at establishment Republicans. This fight is not going to end nicely.

I'm not the drummer.

Personally I would have been happy with a quiet exit by Akin and a solid social issues conservative being named to fill his spot. That is what the Akin voters wanted, that is what won by a six-point margin, and I think it still could have been arranged quietly a few days ago.

With the RNC Chairman's “not one penny” comment today and the issuance of this list, I no longer think a quiet solution is possible.

And no, I am not happy about that. Priebus' comment and Akin's press release are a declaration of war, and I do not believe that will be good for the Republican Party.

It may, however, be necessary.

Akin is evil, but, everyone on this thread still supports the man who said this:

“I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”
- Mitt Romney, 1994, former Boy Scouts of America National Executive Board member

8/7/2012
Mitt Romney stands by a 1994 statement that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) should admit homosexuals to the organization, as members or adult supervisors, according to a campaign spokesperson.

In order for the New World Order to get a solid seating in America, our Christian based government must allow Sharia Law and Islam into our Court system. In order for Agenda 21 to get full financial support, the local, state and federal legislators must pretend they are not Christians.

With all these dang Christians running around screaming and waving that durn Bible, Agenda 21 is going to be more difficult than what the guys in DC thought. Guys like Akins and his supporters are doing nothing but causing trouble for the establishment Republicans and their buddies, the Democrats.

Why do you say he’s evil? What did he say that leads you make such a statement?

MSNBC people who attack Palin’s children, they are evil.

Got news for you, I am from the ‘60s. I remember this thinking that he spoke of from the ‘70s. It was believed by a lot of people in the medical community.

Akin’s only problem is that he didn’t keep up with technology. An honest mistake.

But evil?

YEP -- After what the Romney camp pulled today in Tampa a lot of people got a wake up call though some are still stuck on stupid.

Riebus's statement today puts to rest the nonsense we heard all week about him not being able to beat McCaskill. The Romney GOP don't want him to win and never did. They would rather have McCaskill in the Senate.

Possibility of fracturing the Missouri Republican Party. I know many are reaching the “tipping point.” Priebus and the country club Republicans need to clam up.If they choose to withhold $, that is their call. But to continue pounding on Akin at this juncture only helps Ma McCaskill.

McCaskill doesn't need any help. It's over. And the 120 on this list know it. "At this juncture" it's all about making a pro-life statement. No one who backs Akin gives a rip about the lost senate seat. Disgusting.

If Akin wants some attention that may get more people back to his side, perhaps he should hold a press conference to address this:

20,000 Muslims at an official event at the DNC convention. The Grand Imam for the Jumah at the DNC is Siraj Wahhaj, one of the most sought-after speakers by Muslim organizations. WND reported Wahhaj urged the violent overthrow of the “filthy” U.S. government.

He should promise that he will grill any Romney Atty General nominee about whether he/she would arrest this guy or anyone publicly advocating the violent overthrow of the U.S. government. Maybe he would bring back some of the people he lost.

18 U.S.C. § 2385 : US Code - Section 2385: Advocating overthrow of Government

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof - Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction. If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

As used in this section, the terms "organizes" and "organize", with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.

The people, on this thread, who support Mitt but hate Akin are the PC enforcers who are destroying the Republican Party and handing it over to the elites.

Not a lick of sense in that boys head. He is in spite mode now and it has nothing to do with principle.

Not now and not ever will there be a law forcing raped women to carry a child. To give this seat to a democrat is unconscionable.

He is dying on a hill with zero strategic value just to watch the invading army rape and pillage the people while he gasps his last political breath.

I’l say it AGAIN http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2923792/posts

WHY? It’s called the TRUTH. Truth is always important.
Republicans caused this disaster by jumping to conclusions and not heading this off right at the beginning.

After almost every Republican has helped dig a GIANT hole and thrown poor Todd Akin in it, you are screaming “STOP DIGGING”. YOU dug this hole, now lay in it.

Did you even read the article?, by Jane Orient, M.D., the executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

When are all these Republican COWARDS going to grow a pair? If Republicans had put the press in their place, from the start, this would never have been an issue. But NOOOOOOO, they were scared of the press, so they decided to join them in destroying a fine, pro life conservative, who in-artfully stated FACTS. He was convinced by the powers that be, to apologize and retract poorly worded accurate statements. BOTH mistakes. He should have EXPLAINED what he “MEANT”.

Republicans PANICKED!, and that is why we are where we are.

Chip, please let me know what your emphasis is, and I’ll address it. I’m not sure what specific thing you’re referencing that took place in Tampa.

“He is dying on a hill with zero strategic value just to watch the invading army rape and pillage the people while he gasps his last political breath.”

Graphic language, but damned if I can find anything I would disagree with.

Republicans PANICKED!, and that is why we are where we are.

No, we're where we are because Todd Akin wasn't intelligent to keep his mouth shut - instead, he deliberately chose to give a negative sound bite to the Democrats and their MSM buddies.

Stop blaming others. Todd Akin is in this mess completely because of himself.

What he pulled down there in Tampa today is more despicable and makes him worthy of the title.

This entire Akin flap would be a non-issue if it were not for all the gutless bastards lending support to the liberals screeching like their hair’s on fire.

Did the Sarah Palin tele-drama teach these idiots nothing?

It’s not Akin’s ego that’s going to lose this election: it’ “conservative” cowardice!

The “independents” would pay no more attention to this than they do any Democrat hypocrisy were it not for our side dancing to the liberal’s tune.

These people don’t *deserve* to win the seat from McCaskill.

“We greatly appreciate his long standing commitment to our God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and his proven record of defending life, traditional marriage, religious liberty, the Second Amendment, free enterprise, limited government, fiscal responsibility and a strong national defense.”

No wonder that the RINO's hate him.

He has defied Karl Rove and refused to take a bribe. He is a leader and a fighter and he will win this race.

Obama can say his faith is real and legitimate, but Akin can’t make reference to legitimate rape.

Strange qualifiers in both cases unless illegitimate faith and illegitimate rape actually mean something.
