Ron Paul Welcomes Extremist Endorsement

January 01, 2012  |  permalink

How do we decide what makes a “terrorist”? Rev. Phillip G. Kayser of the Dominion Covenant Church, advocates supplanting American civil law with “Biblical law.” In his view, this includes the death penalty for gay and lesbian Americans, “juvenile delinquents,” and others.

If an influential American imam advocated the murder of millions of Americans for infractions of Islamic law, he’d get an FBI file, and perhaps a free trip to Guantanamo. Instead, Rev. Kayser gets a boast from leading Republican presidential contender Ron Paul, whose Iowa campaign chair praised the “enlightening statements he [Rev. Kayser] makes on how Ron Paul’s approach to government is consistent with Christian beliefs.”
