Christians Should Not Vote for Ron Paul, According to Religious Right
The religious right is not pleased.
At the American Family Association's One News Now filtered news service, Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, a conservative Christian group that has been fighting against gays being able to serve in the military, declared,
" Paul supported President Barack Obama and homosexual activists with his vote during last year's lame-duck session of the 111th Congress to repeal "don't ask, don't tell" — the law excluding homosexuals from serving openly in the U.S. military.
I think he should be held accountable for that vote. Certainly anyone who supports the military should question his support of the armed forces with that vote on his record."
Ron Paul served in both the U.S. Air Force and the National Guard and in the 2008 presidential campaign, reportedly received more military and veterans donations than any other candidate.
Elaine Donnelly, who has never served in the armed forces, has previously declared that "that service members can’t be counted on – or trained – to control their sexual urges."
