Paul Ryan: Obama Compromises Judeo-Christian Values
During a conference call Sunday Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan said that U.S. President Barack Obama compromised Judeo-Christian values.
“It’s a dangerous path,” Ryan said according to a report on Yahoo.”It’s a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty, and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values that made us such a great an exceptional nation in the first place.”
The call was hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, an influential Evangelical group whose leader Ralph Reed said “tens of thousands” of Evangelical Christians were listening in on the call.
Ryan is Catholic and frequently refers to his faith in public. According to the Yahoo report, when asked about the role his faith plays in his daily life Ryan said that “It keeps us, keeps us humble, it keeps us strong, it keeps us in a great place, it gives us peace of mind.”
He said the priest at his Catholic church in Janesville, Wis., emailed Sunday night with a message: “Just have no fear.”
“And that’s how the Lord sustains me,” Ryan said according to the Yahoo report. “No fear…It’s the prayer from my pastor, my family, with my family, and also it’s the prayers that are offered to me from perfect strangers that I know are out there praying, for Mitt and myself, and our families, and our families are doing great.”
