Fundamentalist Baptist Preacher Stumps for Santorum

[as far as the video goes, it is posted by People for the American Way, I do not endorse that group but being shown for the "sermon" inside]

More jingoistic "America as Christian" nation stuff. I've discussed this before on this blog with preachers who have put patriotism above Jesus Christ.

More "culture warrior" stuff abusing abortion. As if the long lines of Knights of Malta candidates they all bow before are actually going to do something about abortion?

He states America was founded as a "Christian nation", not really, the founders were deists and Washington was a Freemason. This country has had Christians in it, but many came to escape exactly what preachers like this call for which is a "theocracy" and to get away from Europe's state mandated religions.

He says some have tried to silence him, well not really, preachers like this now are a dime a dozen. The ones who are being "silenced" are the ones who would ask why he is supporting the candidacy of a Catholic candidate with new world order ties?

He yells about Christians being told they can't pray in public. That one bugs me, because Jesus Christ taught against public prayer  in Matt 6:5.

Then there is this clincher...

"If you don't like America and the way we do things, GET OUT!"

Hmm nice way to win over the non-believers. Just more turning people away from the gospel.

Prayer in public schools? That should be individually allowed but I am not excited about public schools mandated some watered down version of prayer for the children.

Obviously the man loves THEOCRACY, saying the church should be the conscience of the state.

I always think of this saying lately....

It's a popular saying in the secular world, but there is a nugget of truth in there, is there not?

Pastor Dennis Terry Introduces Rick Santorum, Tells Non-Christians And Liberals To Get Out 

In a revival type speech, Greenwell Springs Baptist Church pastor Rev. Dennis Terry introduced Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Christians, according to Rev. Terry, are the conscience of the state and even the key to turning the economy around. The pastor offered some pointed words about abortion, gay marriage, and prayer in schools, shouting about 'sexual perversion' and putting God back in Washington, D.C., as Senator Santorum was seen clapping, if not cheering, in the background.
Here he prays over Santorum:

Praying, he says "Have favor over Rick Santorum"

Santorum later said he disagreed with this preachers remarks on non-christians after some controversy.
