Rand Paul: American taxpayers funding war on Christianity


American taxpayers are funding a war against Christianity, Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) said Thursday during an address made at a popular Washington, DC conservative conference.

Appealing to a crowd at this week’s Faith and Freedom Conference in the nation’s capital, Sen. Paul said changes need to be made with regards to the expansive foreign aid being spent by the United States to fund countries he claims are critical of the most popular religion in the US.

“There is a war on Christianity,” Paul said. “Not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide. And your government, or more correctly, you, the taxpayer, are funding it.”

Sen. Paul made the remarks during a luncheon at the conference that was attended by a crowd compose largely of Jewish and Christian members of the Republican Party, Chris Moody wrote for The Ticket.

“The conference,” Moody wrote, “is organized by former Christian Coalition Executive Director Ralph Reed, and it regularly hosts Republican politicians seeking the party’s nomination for the presidency.”

Sen. Paul said previously that he’s considering a possible presidential bid leading up to the 2016 election, but has stopped himself from officially throwing his hat in the ring. He’s also gone on the record multiple times to critique the current status of the Republican Party, urging other members of the GOP to shift focus in fear that the conservative movement might otherwise die.

“I think my party, the Republican Party, is shrinking,” he told CNN last year. “We’re in danger of becoming a dinosaur.”

During this week’s address, the usually outspoken lawmaker got heated up when he touched on how federal funds were being used to foot the bills of overseas programs taken advantage of allegedly devout opponents of Christianity.

“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,” he said.

“Is it any wonder that Congress has a 10 percent approval rating?” he asked. “In Egypt, in Pakistan, they burn our flag. I say not one penny more to countries that burn the American flag.”

“These countries are not our true allies, and no amount of money is going to make them so,”
he said.

“While they burn the American flag and the mobs chant ‘Death to America,’ more of your money is sent to these haters of Christianity,” said the senator. “It is clear that American taxpayer dollars are being used to enable a war on Christianity in the Middle East, and I believe that must end.”

Paul proposed a bill last year that would cut funding to Egypt, Pakistan and Libya, but Paul has long opposed foreign any of all sorts. With regards to one of America’s biggest allies, Israel, Paul suggested pulling funding there during remarks made earlier this year to the Jerusalem Institute for Market Studies.

“It will be harder to be a friend of Israel if we are out of money. It will be harder to defend Israel if we destroy our country in the process,” Paul told the think-tank. “I think there will be significant repercussions of running massive deficits . . . you destroy your currency by spending money you don’t have.”

  1. $31 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR goes to that shitty little country, Isntreal. This is a place where Christians are pariah. Spit on, called every name in the book by the jews that believe Jesus is at this moment burning in hell in a vat of excrement and semen. And jews posing as ‘athiests’ are doing what they can to destroy Christianity here in the US and Europe. And the Christians, through psychos like John Hagee, Joel Osteen and the like take even more money out of their pockets to support Isntreal.

    Christians are stupid sheep. they will do whatever they are told to look good in the eyes of each other and ‘God’. Even if it means taking it up the poopshoot for the jew. They deserve everything they get.

    Their imaginary friend is just a construct of the jew any way. The jews wrote the Bible. Jesus was a jew. Christianity is top of the list of jew flim-flams. Suckers.

    This poor man looks spaced out.
    His eyes are dead looking.
    His face is blank,and he
    looks as if he is heavily sedated or under the influence or
    control of something. He looks mechanical… robotic.His eyes are not
    focused and his face is expressionless. He seems to be running on
    automatic pilot. His handlers stand nearby and are blurred for some
    reason, but of course that must be the camera…
