I tuned in to the Republican debate Monday night (January 16) right at the point that Ron Paul was answering questions, making statements about, U.S. foreign policy and how attacking people all over the world in their own countries, especially those who hadn’t attacked us, was not only the wrong thing to do but led to great dangers for us. He actually mentioned the Golden Rule, aka the law of cause and effect.
Interestingly, at the point that he did, he was actually booed by many in the audience, presumably a number of who consider themselves to be “good Christians”. Further, his assessment that somehow U.S. foreign policy just may be at the root of our problems, and that we have no right to act as the world’s policeman, etc., to invade and bomb people at will was met with sound disapproval from the other candidates, all of whom seemed to think that the best policy was to annihilate whoever we choose, where and whenever we choose. Please note that all of the candidates profess great religious convictions, etc. connected to some form of Christianity…of course. [...]
