    Rand Paul refuses to shake hands with opponent Conway after debate

    LOUISVILLE — A debate filled with unabashed personal attacks concluded Sunday night with Republican Rand Paul briskly brushing past Democrat Jack Conway, refusing to shake the hand of an opponent who raised questions about his religious beliefs.

    "Jack, have you no decency? Have you no shame?" Paul asked Conway during the fourth of five scheduled debates between Kentucky's U.S. Senate candidates.

    Paul said Conway's actions were "a disgrace" that should disqualify Conway from the heated contest Kentuckians will decide Nov. 2.

    Paul's initial comments in the debate focused on a Conway TV ad that began airing over the weekend that says that while in college at Baylor University, Paul was in a secret brotherhood that mocked Christianity. It also alleged that he tied up a woman while in college and forced her to bow down to a god named "Aqua Buddha."

    The ad is based on articles about Paul's days at Baylor that have appeared in GQ magazine, The Washington Post and Politico.com in recent weeks and months.

    The ad has caused the race to descend "into the gutter," said Paul, who described himself as "a pro-life Christian." He recited biblical Scripture from the Book of Mark, asking Conway what does it profit a man to gain the world if he loses his soul?

    Conway said the ad raises legitimate questions about Paul's values and repeatedly challenged Paul to answer two questions: Why did he join a college society, the NoZe Brotherhood, that mocked Christianity, and when is it appropriate to tie up a woman and make her bow down to "Aqua Buddha"?

    Paul, a Bowling Green eye surgeon making his first bid for public office, did not answer Conway's questions. Instead, he suggested people could tell Conway, the state's attorney general, was lying because his lips were moving.

    "If ye love wealth better than liberty,
    the tranquility of servitude
    better than the animating contest of freedom,
    go home from us in peace.
    We ask not your counsels or your arms.
    Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
    May your chains set lightly upon you,
    and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    I might have too. Although I don't believe in religion I can understand him being pissed.

    Conway is going to lose anyway. I hope Rand Paul lives up to my expectations.

    Conway reiterated the accusations made in the ad against Paul. "Why did he freely join a group known for mocking, for making fun of people with faith?"
    I didn't know Paul was running as a democrat?

    I wouldn't have shaken his hand either.

    I wouldn't likely do anything while there were witnesses.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    I think giving Conway a subtle "$#@! you, $#@!" by not shaking hands was appropriate.

    He didn't pet the state weasel, Zack Wamp, and the Davidson County (Nashville) RNC got pissed and kicked him out of the VP chair position.

    I think this might have been what brought down Rand in the polls.

    Sort of kind of.

    I wasn't actually thrown out of the GOP nor was my position taken. Their vote to purge me was invalid but I decided to leave anyway so that I could focus on other more important projects.
