This is what I've been trying to say here, over and over. But now here's a clear-cut example, of how we have departed from basic Christian principles in our foreign policy, and some are cheering this on!
At the debate tonight in South Carolina, Paul advocated the Golden Rule, in how we treat other nations. In a state where (I'm assuming) there are many so called christians and conservatives, he got booed for that. This is scary to me. Strangely, a minute later he got cheers when he said we don't need another war, but maybe those were from the more sane people.
Of course, people are talking about this on twitter and youtube. And of course, Christians are looking bad, although who knows if those people who booed were Christians. I hope they weren't.
Here are some tweets from tonight:
golden rule = BOO! murder people = YAY! i refuse to accept mainstream reality of pro-life killers. I substitute my own where freedom reigns
At tonight's Republican debate, Ron Paul said we should have a foreign policy based on the Golden Rule. He got booed. We are in DEEP trouble
How can anyone boo the golden rule? That's like booing someone for not wanting war... oh wait. #EndTheWars
Crowd is booing Ron Paul's invocation of the golden rule. Mighty Christian of you folks. #SCDebate
The Golden Rule gets boo'd at #SCDebate. Heck no, Ron Paul! We don't like that kind of humanity. We only teach that to our kids for giggles!
A room full of "Christians" boos the Golden Rule. - Ric Stewart
I'm scared. The Fox debate audience just booed Ron Paul proposing that we apply the golden rule.
Dear Rick Perry, the "Golden Rule" was different than peeing on your enemies corpses. #scdebate
Oh my God. Ron Paul just got a room full of Christians to boo the Golden Rule. YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP. #SCDebate
Yeah, let's boo the golden rule. Phony Christians... #SCDebate
How can people boo the Golden Rule? It might be the 1 thing all *decent* people can agree on. We teach it to our kids. http://bit.ly/AuA7FE
South Carolina booos when the golden rule is brought up? This is why I have no faith in America......
NEW RULE: If you boo when someone says foreign policy should be guided by Golden Rule, you can't say America's a Christian nation anymore.
It goes on and on....
Satanic neo-confederate horse shit.
Shame on you Miss Buttercup.
