    Ron Paul’s Campaign Touts Endorsement Of Pastor Who Advocates Killing Gay People

    Four years ago, the Ron Paul campaign generated controversy by not repudiating the endorsement of the neo-Nazi group Stormfront, but at least back then they didn’t actually promote the fact that they had received the endorsement. This time, though, they seem pretty proud about getting the support of a Nebraska Pastor who has made some pretty vile comments:
    Paul’s Iowa chair, Drew Ivers, recently touted the endorsement of Rev. Phillip G. Kayser, a pastor at the Dominion Covenant Church in Nebraska who also draws members from Iowa, putting out a press release praising “the enlightening statements he makes on how Ron Paul’s approach to government is consistent with Christian beliefs.” But Kayser’s views on homosexuality go way beyond the bounds of typical anti-gay evangelical politics and into the violent fringe: he recently authored a paper arguing for criminalizing homosexuality and even advocated imposing the death penalty against offenders based on his reading of Biblical law.

    Many Republicans advocate doing something to gay people. Republicans in Texas want to make them criminals and if anyone marries them, a felon. It's in their Texas Republican Party State Platform.

    Where does it say that?:
    Is this the latest fax you got from the DNC? "Here, post this! Don't bother reading it just post it!" :lol:
    From the Link:
    "Strongly disagree?" I wonder what that could be? Perhaps that Ron Paul doesn't want to kill gays? :lol:

    As usual, this is just more rdope partisan hackery. But he's given me good idea!

    hey, weren't we all told your association with a pastor didn't matter?

    Jeremiah Wright anyone.. you know that one who said 9/11 was our chickens coming home to roost, that Obama NEVER heard of word of his sermons while sitting in his church for 20 years..:eusa_whistle:

    Mad Scientist completely misses the point in his blind rush to defend anything Paul does. Why would anyone accept the endorsement of someone who's advocates the death penalty for killing gays?

    Here's one of the more interesting parts of what he said:

    Long story short: He supports Paul because if it was up to Ron Paul, states could decide to outlaw homosexuality once again among other things. Which is a good example of how Ron Paul is Anti-Federalist and not Libertarian.

    That's what Ron Paul thinks, too.

    Gay people are sick. Period. Why does lakota defend a man that likes to put his cock in a mans ass?

    Great point, Steph! Unlike Obama, who sat in a radical church for 20 years and regularly gave money to it, Paul is not close with this pastor and they don't agree on everything. It's a stretch, but I think many of us knew this was going to be the nastiest campaign season ever. The spin machine is running full tilt and no one has any shame. Can't debate any opponents on the issues, so it's time for tabloid style attacks.
