New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is joining the parade of ambitious Republicans courting religious conservatives as the early jockeying for the next presidential contest intensifies.
Christie was to deliver his first major address to an evangelical conference on Friday, the second day of the Faith and Freedom Coalitions annual meeting, which brings hundreds of social conservative leaders to Washington. Hell be joined on a packed agenda that also includes the GOPs 2012 vice presidential nominee, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and tea party firebrand Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. [ ]
This group of potential presidential contenders largely represents a wing of the Republican Party eager to downplay the GOPs positions on divisive social issues, although each of the three opposes gay marriage and abortion rights, including funding for Planned Parenthood, among other social conservative priorities.

I'd be willing to bet that he would say that while he is pro-life, he favors letting others decide for themselves. In other words, he's actually pro abortion.
Christie will NEVER get my vote. His 15 minutes of fame embracing Obama was a calculated “diss” of Romney and helped turn the tide back to Obama.
The stock answer for every liberal politician. You're right, anybody who says that is a baby killing liberal, whether republican or democrat.
He started out openly “pro-choice”. Later on, he claimed to be “pro-life” but said he wouldn’t use the position of governor of NJ to “force that down people’s throats”, while of course remaining silent on the federal kritocracy forcing the opposite down everyone’s throat.
This game Christie is playing reminds me of the “Conservative” British Prime Minister David Cameron who put the final blessing on gays getting married and when Christian voters began to flock to the United Kindgom Independence Party as a means of protest, Cameron comes out and makes an emotional speech about the UK being a “Christian nation”.
He wouldn’t have to court the evangelical vote if he would only act like a conservative when he’s making decisions.
Tell fatboy to hang around with his RINO friends and leave us prolife, profamily, Bible-believing gun-toting evangelicals alone!
Mr. Christie is a mean, fat, ugly, stupid crook. While he is younger than the other fossils and gargoyles that form the Republican Party Leadership, he still is the obvious front runner for the Republican Presidential nomination.
Mr. Christie is the Republican Establishment poster boy, actually to be fair, he is a poster boy and a half.
Hugger and effusive praiser of Mister Obama right before a national election? ... Yes.
Liar about being an Evangelical because he thinks you are stupid? ... (You know the answer.)
Son, you could speak in tongues at an Assemblies of God church on Pentecost, and you still wouldn’t get a majority in a Republican primary.
Real conservatives won’t ever forget Christie’s french-kissing Obama after “Super-Storm Sandy.”
According to Christie, being pro-life is helping people in prisons. What he seems ignorant of is that pretty much the only people volunteering to help people in prisons are Evangelical church ministries. So Thanks Chris, but why don’t you preach this sermon at some liberal church, where they want to tell you so bad they care, but never show up in anybody’s cell block?

“In his first major address to evangelical voters, Christie highlighted his status as New Jersey’s first anti-abortion governor since the Supreme Court’s landmark abortion decision, Roe v. Wade.
“Every life is a gift from God that’s precious and must be protected,” Christie declared, while calling on conservatives to devote more attention to helping treat drug addiction.
“I believe if you’re pro-life, as I am, you need to be pro-life for the whole life,” he said shortly before making a visit to early-voting New Hampshire. “You can’t just afford to be pro-life when the human being is in the womb.”
Christie thinks a child’s life is worth saving unless they were conceived by rape or incest, then it’s get the meat cleaver out, their life means nothing. This worthless RINO lardass claims to be Catholic but goes against the Catholic church with pro-abortion stance. He’s no more pro-life than Nancy Pelosi. He’s for selective abortion and people need to quit calling these RINOs that believe in abortion pro-life.
He also believes in homosexual adoption, saying a child does not need a mother and father to be properly raised and homosexuals can raise children as well as anyone else. And as we all know he outlawed same-sex attraction therapy. He says “born gay, always gay”. I’ve heard the fatass say those exact words.
