Skip to comments.Ron Paul picks up major evangelical endorsement heading into South Carolina
Posted on 01/13/2012 6:25:26 PM PST by jmc813
Ron Paul picked up a major endorsement from an evangelical leader when Dr. James Linzey, president and founder of the Military Bible Association, endorsed the candidate.
Lizney, who served as a military chaplain for over 24 years and retired with an honorable discharge, has hosted Operation Freedom, a television program in Europe. Before founding the Military bible Association, he travelled the world as an evangelist.
In a statement to Congressman Paul declaring his endorsement, Lizney said, Having thoroughly examined your political philosophy and finding that your platform is 100% in line with the Constitution of the United States of America, and examining your political record to find that you have consistently upheld the Constitution and thereby faithfully represented your constituency, and studying your statement of faith to find that your faith and religious experience is 100% compatible with Evangelical Christianity and Orthodox Christianity, I hereby endorse you for the Office of the President of the United States of America. I wish you Godspeed!"
He went on to say that while Texas governor, Rick Perry, was also an evangelical, the deciding factor for his endorsement was fidelity to the Constitution. The tell-tale sign of being qualified for the presidency is not faith, but loyalty to the Constitution which defends the open expression of faith. Ron Paul seems to be the candidate most loyal to the Constitution according to the records.
The endorsement could be a crucial one for Paul going into the South Carolina primary.
Some in the Christian community have taken issue with Paul's refusal to commit to reinstating the militarys ban on homosexuals serving openly.
Lizney says if evangelicals truly want ot make faith an issue in the campaign they should consider Pauls personal testimony on his website where Paul says, Let me be very clear here: I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, and I endeavor every day to follow Him in all I do and in every position I advocate."
Lizney said while he would support Romney if he eventually wins the nomination, he believes Paul is the better candidate because, while Romney may be an excellent debater, Paul argues from the standpoint of the Constitution.
Catch Hanity on the rerun, Demint is on at the very end. Then you tell me.
@Fester: You LOL at the Stormfront support and have written that Paul: “He’s consistently voted against, and spoken against, growing government, moreso than any representative in government I’ve ever seen or heard about in my lifetime.”
What’s the deal with his legislative record of trying to increase the power of the IRS and the department of education?
From Pauls website: A co-sponsor is a Member of Congress who joins with the sponsor in originally introducing the legislation, or officially supporting it after the measure has been formally introduced to the Congress.

I cannot believe the RNC wants this scorched earth, but they have done everything in their power to prove just that.
Fine. We’ll deny you your Mittens AND take the Senate.
I can’t believe it’s come to this.
Is that all you can find? Looks like he had an axe to grind WRT tax codes 1986. You forgot the meme: He has been totally ineffective. Remember? But, he’s a real threat now, with 320 Stormfronters on his side. LOL.
I've seen the video, Vic. I still know he's nuts. And at least twenty-two of the slices on the chart above comes from his newsletters - which is a problem, since Paul said on December 29 that there were only eight or ten bad sentences in all of his newsletters, ever. And there were more than eight or ten sentences on MLK, Jr. Not blacks. Or gays. Or Jews. Just on MLK.
Enjoy those slices, Vic. They ARE Ron Paul.
It appears every time there is a negative piece on him, his poll numbers go up.
Keep laughing and look under your bed for Trilateralists, guys.
The GOP is using this village idiot as a live target for dems, libertarians, and other whack-offs to vote for Paul and not conservatives like Perry, Santorum, Gingrich and others.
Who benefits? Mittens, of course.
Sorry Scout, I’m not afraid of any boogie man.
Reading between DeMint’s lines, you can see his point that with gaining the Senate and holding the House, ANY POTUS is thus bound by the legislative and not the other way around.
The GOP is betting conservatives will tuck tail and vote for Mittens over Paul.
What's even weirder... every time Ron's numbers go up, Mitt Romney's go up even more.
Weirder still... Ron Paul hasn't taken a single shot at the frontrunner in this race. Cain, Bachmann, Gingrich, Santorum? Check, check, check and check.
But not Mitt. When it comes to Romney, Mr. Constitution has been as sweet as a pussy cat. The first man in American history to require the purchase of a service as a condition of citizenship in a state, the most egregious assault on individual liberty the country had ever seen prior to Obama... and Ron Paul has the perp in his sights, standing next to him on the stage (14 times!) with the whole country looking on and... and... nothing. Nothing in the debates, not a single ad against him, not a word against him at his rallies. He couldn't even bring himself to take a shot at Mittens on Leno (he called him a "nice guy"). Nada. Even when he's polling in second place, Ron Paul targets the people behind him and ignores the frontrunner. How weird is that?!?
It's almost like he's part of some sort of... conspiracy. Alex Jones should look into this. The Bilderbergs may have gotten to him.
“Did you hear about that recent . . . uh . . . Bilderberg Group meeting in . . . what was it?
just thought you might want to know
As far as Sweater Vest, he's hoping for a spot in Romney's cabinet.
The strategy seems to be take out the weaker guys first.
If I have limited resources, I'd do the same. Let the other guys spend their money attacking the top guy while I knock off the weaker guy.
Yeah. Sure. Just like 320 Stormfronters. I don't think I'm the one susceptible to conspiracy theories.
Yup turns out he has been a ron Paul-bot since at least 2007
That's precisely the strategy. It's the strategy of a wingman. That's what Ron is. He's working for the establishment in plain sight. And his followers are so emotionally invested in him, they'll never see it.
Brilliant, really. Not so much on Ron's part, but whoever's pulling his strings. We're definitely being taken down by some smart cookies. Of course, it doesn't hurt that we've gone brain dead.
Speaking of the Bilderbergs, Alex Jones was screaming from every rooftop that could support his weight that Rick Perry was their man. What the hell happened? These people are superhuman luciferians, couldn’t the all-seeing eye see that the man couldn’t debate his way out of wet paper bag? Since when do the illuminati hand-pick fifth place finishers?
What the hell happened?
Just thought the scoutmaster needed to be a little more prepared
Hey, Barack Obama only had two Weather Undergrounders backing him. In that light, 320 neo-Nazis (including their leader) sounds like a lot. Throw in David Duke, Lew Rockwell, Adam Kokesh, Jules Manson, Bill White, James von Brunn and Willis Carto and a pattern begins to emerge.
Unless you'd rather not see it. Then it doesn't. Why not? -- it worked for Obama supporters in 2008. Certainly Paul's supporters -- the flip side of the same coin -- can turn an equally blind eye to the neo-Nazi dregs coalescing around Dr. Paul.
I dont think they are “superhuman luciferians” but they must like Rick Perry
Dallas Morning News | May 31, 2007
Gov. Rick Perry is flying to Istanbul, Turkey, today to speak at the super-secret Bilderberg Conference, a meeting of about 130 international leaders in business, media and politics.
The invitation-only conference was started in 1954 and named for the Dutch hotel where the conference was first held. Those who attend promise not to reveal what was discussed, security is tight, and the press and public are barred.
The conference has been the subject of conspiracy theorists and even Christian groups who wonder about its influence.
Robert Black, the governors press secretary, said the governor was invited to attend and speak about state-federal relations. Mr. Black dismissed the conspiracy theories.
Soft and sweet coverage for Romney.
It appears to me RP and Gingrich have supporters that are emotionally invested in them.
RP clearly edges out Newt with more enthusiastic supporters.
Newt can win a debate, but he really needs to score a first or second in SC or it may be lights out.
No money, no play.
And your wrong about RP helping Romney.
He'll attack Romney, but not now, not when it could benefit others.
BTW, on a side note, I was surprised to learn that Arlen Foster of the Texans is a RP supporter.
Just putting it out there for Ron’s more ardent supporters. They know what Alex Jones said about Perry and the Bilderberg Group. And now they know that Alex Jones is a shrill, shrieking fraud.
Oh yeah. It’s a pattern. A conspiracy to be sure. Worth checking under the bed at night.
I thought is was the Cindy Sheehan types who coalesce around Ron Paul. If we're going to swallow conspiracy theories, let's at least be consistent.
No, he'll wait until it benefits Soetoro. When he's running as a third party candidate. The ultimate goal is to get Barry his "gangsta-shit" term and finish this country off once and for all... and Ron's going to see to it that it happens.
It hard to believe that people can listen to Paul and not hear the utter burning hatred he has for this country. He's a madman and he's out for blood. But he's fooled a lot of people (mostly young) and he's going to do his damage. It is what it is.
Paul must really be burning a hole in you.
Talk about emotional attachment.
Take a day off and quit listening to all those radio personalities that are owned by Bain.
You know who they are.
If Paul decided to run third party, he would beat them both.
Newt and Santorum are weak.
Both would give us 4 more years of the dictator.
Romney is the same.
The reality Mr. Conspiracy theorist is that all of them pretty much suck just like the GOP leadership in Washington.
The race is still young, you still may have a chance to get your guy elected, but it's going to cost money.
Newt and Rick don't have it compared to Romney.
GO unplug yourself from this BS and take a sabbatical.
You need it and you deserve it.
Leave all the CT at your special place and come back ready to fight and explain why your guy should be the nominee.
Cindy Sheehan is a communist dupe. So are Don Black and David Duke (is David still working out of Moscow these days?). It’s all perfectly consistent. Islamists and leftists (Nazis are leftists) are propping up Paul to deliver a death blow to America and Israel in the form of BHO’s second term.
And they don’t need to hide under anyone’s bed, nobody’s looking for them. Adam Kokesh held a moneybomb for Ron Paul on Putin’s Russia Today network. You didn’t blink. Ron Paul openly trashes the United States on the mass-murdering totalitarian mullahs’ Press TV, you don’t blink or even question the wisdom of doing it. That’s what it means to take your country down in plain sight. They do as they please because they know you won’t notice or care.
And before you go on any further about “conspiracies”, look the word up. They happen. All through history they’ve happened. And as a result, countries have fallen and hundreds of millions have been slaughtered. Think we’re immune? Think again. It’s happening right in front of you.
If the enemies of our country are sandbagging Ron Paul with their crazy ideas, are you going to believe Ron Paul supports them? That's nuttier than truthers. It's also a tacit admission that you don't think we have the will, resources, and capacity to defend ourselves.
For the record, every bit of this is burning a hole in me. Obama, Paul, the braindead masses that are dragging this country to unrecoverable depths... every damn bit of it. I love this country and I hate watching it die.
I'm not going to go line-by-line and counter your assumptions about which Bain boogeymen I listen to and whatnot, I'm just not interested in countering that sort of tactical condescension. I said what I wanted to say and I'm content to leave it at that.
Have a good night.
Thanks wIll work on the paragraph BS. LOL
I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking, but I’ll give it a shot anyway.
Do I think Ron Paul is on board with the takeover of America? I have no idea if he fully understands what he’s doing or where it will lead. He’s not particularly lucid or insightful, he relies heavily on vacuous, well-worn talking points about sound money and The Fed and liberty and what-have-you and his writings — from his newsletters to his columns that I’ve read on antiwar.com and other sites — seem to be pro-forma libertarian boilerplate designed to be distributed among his fans. I honestly can’t get a read on his motivation because I have no idea what his thought process is. He’s been using the same talking points for the four decades of writings and appearances that I have access to. When I read Jefferson or Adams, or even Reagan, they give me a glimpse into their though processes. Ron Paul’s words offer no such insight. He essentially bangs his fist down and tells me how it is. So I can’t speak to his motivation because I have no idea how he thinks. And I can’t speak to what’s in his heart for obvious reasons.
What I do know is that he’s deeply damaging to this country and that his words greatly please the Russians and the Iranians — and have for years. So much so that they use their propaganda networks to raise money for him (in the case of RT) and give him an open forum to speak his anti-American policy views in the harshest terms possible. That’s alarming to me. In my parents’ generation, such actions were unthinkable. Now those actions are completely ignored. When an American politician can get away with going on Iranian state-controlled television to savage U.S. policy and call Israel an apartheid-state, nothing matters to the American voter anymore. And that’s something we will not survive.
As far as what I think you’re on board with, I don’t. You represent words on a screen, not a real person. No offense. It’s just futile to form opinions about who you are or what your motivations are. I try to respond to words, not people. At least in this medium I do.
And, if we’re going to talk like grown-ups, drop the tin-foil nonsense. Men conspire to attain power over other men, and have since the dawn of time. Talking about aluminum foil at the mere mention of such an obvious universal truth is nothing but a tired and lazy way of being dismissive. It’s beneath this forum and really needs to be put to rest. If you think Ron Paul is unimpeachable, that’s fine. I don’t think any man not named Jesus Christ is. But I am open to the possibility that Ron Paul is merely being used and manipulated by men much smarter than he is.
Yes, I’ve known litekeeper for years now. As he says, he was an army chaplain. And an evangelical friend in the religion forum.
Thanks for asking, 2111USMC
Linzy is wrong. Paul does not demonstrate fidelity to the Constitution.
Paul assigns the Right to Life to states. It is the ultimate right, and it cannot be taken without due process.
To argue that states can arbitrarily take life but that the Fed can’t is ignorant.
Apparently because the gentleman who endorsed Dr. Paul actually took the time to do his homework and LOOKED AT THE RECORD, unlike virtually ALL his detractors who seem only to spout that day’s RNC talking points memo.
Love the 106. Ontos: load it Sunday, shoot it all week!
Loved it mounted on the mechanical mule with the .50 spotting rifle, too. Message of the .50: If you don’t like THIS, you SURE ain’t gonna like what’s coming next!!!
Woulda been great if we coulda mounted some on my helos!!! Best we could do on the UH-34 was M60, but Ma Deuce fit real nice on my CH-53s!!!
Sorry. I was referring to Dr. James Linzey.
Did you hear about that recent . . . uh . . . Bilderberg Group meeting in . . . what was it?
just thought you might want to know
The Bilderberg Group meets annually. Your link is about the 2011 annual meeting in St. Moritz, Switzerland. I didn't say the video was taken last year. The video and the question related to the June 5-8, 2008 meeting of the Bilderberg Group at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia.
The point of the video is that the Bilderberg Group is just one of the many groups that is repeatedly mentioned in the New World Order conspiracies of Ron Paul in his newsletters. The newsletters he's now back to admitting he wrote part of, which looks as though it included the Bliderberger consplracy parts, because Paul follows them and thinks the Bilderbers probably talk about controlling the banking systems of the world and natural resources.
And those Bohemian Grove people who are in on the New World Order. And the Trilateralists, and the (Dr. Ron Paul's Freedom Report, April 1978, p. 3): 'facist-oriented, international banking and business interests' that are managed by the "Marxist-oriented Torrijos dictatorship' in conduction with the Marine-Midand bank partnership with the Hong Konk and Shanghai Banking Corporation, who are being subsidized by the Export-Import bank, the Agency for International Development, and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, as part of a international blackmail scheme. (Paul's . . . umm . . . signature is on that particular page at the end of the article, right after he's tied the blackmail into the Singlaub firing, the Salt II treaty, and Paul Warnke's obsessions, and single page signatures aren't usual for 1978),
And there are the "Insiders (CFR, Trilateral Commission, etc.)" of the Ron Paul Newsletter, October 1990, Page 1.
I could keep going, but just read one of the books that Ron Paul wants you to buy "100, or even more" copies of:
So the Bilderberg Group meets (so does the Kiwanis Club and the Rotary Club). Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced. Bilderberg's only activity is its annual conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued."
But they could be dangerous. Ron Paul figured it out through geometric logic. The strawberries. That's when he had them.
We in the Kiwanis Club are trying to keep a very low profile. Its hard enough to raise adequate money with pancake suppers and golf tournaments to destabilize international banking.
If every knew what we were really up to...
We've had at least two generations of parents whose overall effect was to establish and build an enormous feeding trough on the one hand, and to launch out into other lands striking beehives and snake pits with fancy sticks on the other. It's time to grow up, as you say, and knock it off.
LSU got treated like the redheaded stepchild it is. Live with it, shugga. Bama dominated your girls, in their own back yard! bwwaaaahahahaa
LOL. Sorry 2111. Brain freeze in Ohio.
No, I don’t know Linzey. I was surprised that the summary of his career was “24 years and retired with an honorable discharge.” Well, duh. I’d sure hope so.
In any case, it doesn’t say if he was active, reserve, or NG, either. I never had the pleasure of meeting him. I’m sure he’s a fine person, but he can’t be a real pro-life minister, if he doesn’t see through Paul’s “state-by-state right to life.” (Kill ‘em in PA, preserve ‘em in VA).
I agree. The “state-by-state” is a dodge so that RP doesn’t have to answer the question straight-up.
