Rand Paul claims American taxpayers fund ‘wars against Christians’

Rand Paul:  Yeah, he said that

Rand Paul: Yeah, he said that

In the kind of statement that keeps people shaking their heads about right-wingers, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul Thursday claimed American taxpayers are footing the bill for a “war on Christianity” in both the United States and in other nations.

Claimed Paul in a conservative conference in Washington:

There is a war on Christianity, Not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide. And your government, or more correctly, you, the taxpayer, are funding it. You are being taxed to send money to countries that are not only intolerant of Christians, but openly hostile. Christians are imprisoned and threatened with death for their beliefs.

Paul did not elaborate on how taxpayers are funding a war against God and Christians in the United States but said foreign aid goes to countries where burning the American flag is allowed.

“I say not one penny more to countries that burn the American flag,” he said to the annual Faith and Freedom Conference.   “While they burn the American flag and mobs chant ‘Death to America,’ more of your money is sent to these haters of Christianity.”

Paul claimed American tax dollars are used to “enable a war on Christianity in the Middle East.”

The conference was organized by Ralph Reed, the former director of the Christian Coalition and a close friend and partner of disgraced and former lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who was convicted of mail fraud and sentenced to prison.  Reed was part of several Abramoff schemes to make money off phony causes.

    Better yet;

    How about some tax dollars to run you and the rest of your bad-ass obstructionist buddies over to fight the ghosts while we bring our service people home ?

    “Paul did not elaborate on how taxpayers are funding a war against God and Christians in the United States but said foreign aid goes to countries where burning the American flag is allowed.”

    Unlike the good old US of A, where we limit free speech by making flag burning illegal. Oh, wait, The Supreme Court said what? Never mind.

    And the flag etiquette rules in the US Code encourage flag burning.

    Regardless of what people think of Rand Paul’s ‘right wing’ beliefs this appeal to Christians is a brilliant strategy, since the storyline is simple and believable.

    He is right about us frittering our tax dollars away on ‘haters’ of America and its values.

    The Obama administration just authorized 1.2 billion in military aid to Egypt…say what?!

    During Obama’s tenure they managed to destabilize Egypt by having it’s former strongman Hosni Mubarak toppled from office leaving a vacuum for fundamentalist muslims to take control of the government who in the end represent a threat to Israeli and U.S. interests in the region.

    Mubarak wasn’t a good guy, ruling Egypt with an iron hand, but he was a ‘friend of the West’ rather than now having a leadership with a jihadist bent for destruction of things both Christian and Jewish if they could do so.

    Our Congressional contingent that continues to dole out our tax debt dollars to these unfriendly national fronts are traitors to American interests as far as I’m concerned and need to be summarily reckoned with at the polls.

    It would gladden me greatly to see us pull the plug on the bulk of these Islamist nations that demonstrate a two faced posture towards the West; I.E., our money is welcome, but democracy and women’s rights are as oil to water with them. Their societies are basically of a neolithic culture in nature and seemingly refuse to climb onboard to a ‘Brave New World’ acoming construct.
