Ron Paul defends Mitt Romney in press release.

December 6, 2007 12:19 am EST

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – In light of Governor Romney’s anticipated “religion speech,” fellow Republican candidate Ron Paul issued the following statement:

“We live in times of great uncertainty when men of faith must stand up for American values and traditions before they are washed away in a sea of fear and relativism. I have never been one who is particularly comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena, and I find the pandering that typically occurs in the election season to be distasteful.

“Our nation was founded to be a place where religion is freely practiced and differences are tolerated and respected. I come to my faith through Jesus Christ and have accepted him as my personal savior. At the same time, I have worked tirelessly to defend and restore individual rights and religious freedom for all Americans.

“The recent attacks and insinuations, both direct and subtle, that Gov. Romney may be less fit to serve as president of our United States because of his faith fly in the face of everything America stands for. Gov. Romney should be judged fairly, on his record and his character, not on the church he attends.”

Wow

I have a lot of respects for Ron Paul!

It would be nice if Mitt Romney announces his endorsement for RP? :p

Seems like Ron Paul was the only one to stand up for Romney when he was being bashed over religion. That takes courage.

His response to Huckabee's religious bigotry was very classy and sincere. I wish that more of the people in this forum had his wisdom. The irrationality of some members almost makes me think they are plants. Romney was BY FAR the best of the other candidates (from a Ron Paul perspective). No, he wasn't against the Iraq war, but much as it may pain some people to recognize it, there are many other issues just as critical to our nation.

"We live in times of great uncertainty when men of faith must stand up for American values and traditions before they are washed away in a sea of fear and relativism."

Did anyone see that? He took a cheap shot at every religion and irreligion that does not subscribe to literal interpretation of religious laws. How can Ron Paul be for religious freedom if he says things like this? Religious freedom for Christians is not enough.

I'm sure one of our nonreligious supporters can explain why Congressman Paul still deserves his or her support.

To say that Christians should speak on their beliefs, especially their belief in a dispensational interpretation of scripture doesn't mean he is against religious pluralism. How ignorant of a statement that was. Do you realize he was worked with many religions in his political campaign?

We should live in a society where each of us should speak what we believe in. Not only that, but we should live in a society where no one gets offended when something is not "politically correct."(Something that was started in the communist manifesto) A society of questioning institutionalized religion and giving why we believe what we believe.

Romney had no respect for Ron Paul and said he should be laughed at....so quit defending him.
