The people posting this are correct that there is hypocrisy there.
Santorum was speaking at Crown College.
Crown College refers to itself thusly: "A distinctively Baptist Bible college in Powell-Knoxville, Tennessee."
Now remember this isn't Yale, etc, they claim they are a fundamentalist college...
"The Crown College, also called Crown College of the Bible, is an Independent Baptist bible college, seminary, and music conservatory in Powell, Tennessee. The college offers the Bachelor of Biblical Studies degree, with concentrations in pastoral ministry, youth ministry, missions, music ministry and Christian education. The Crown Seminary offers the M.C.E., M.S.M., M.Min., M.Div., and D.Min. degrees. The college also has auxiliary campuses in Evesham, England, and Fort Worth, Texas."
I noticed years ago, how many independent baptist churches and schools opened the doors for the new world order politicians. Anyone remember Bob Jones University and George W. Bush?
It is a serious problem and makes you wonder what is going on behind the scenes there too.
I have realized over the years, many in the IFB movement are deceived by the right and Dominionism.
What does it say when 50 IFB preachers support Knights of Malta Santorum? Can that all be laid at the feet of ignorance or something else? Santorum does not keep his Catholicism a secret, not at all. One thing I believe the fundamentalist churches are infiltrated to the max too, especially at the higher levels. Even a local one, I walked out of, knowing within 15 minutes the possibilities of the guy being a government shill or knowing deceiver was very high.
It is possible for laymen to be unaware that Rick Santorum is a knight of the Papacy in Rome. It is only two weeks since he entered the Presidential race.
But Pastors on the US, must have been aware about this Roman Catholic congressman.
That is why it is rather shocking that 50 “Independent Baptist pastors” in Iowa, endorsed Rick Santorum. Their only demand, was that Santorum must make their own daughter, Michelle Bachmann [sic]his nominee for Vice President.
This is recoded by a local news wire:
Burlington, IA (MMD Newswire) January 2, 2012 — Hours from the onset of the year 2012 and the January 3 Iowa Caucuses, the nation’s first GOP Presidential voting, the Rev. Brad Cranston, a Michelle Bachmann endorser who leads about 50 Independent Baptist pastors and churches in Iowa, offered to shift his endorsement to her rival Rick Santorum if he’ll make a “full-disclosure, total-transparency, Vice Presidential choice, and if that choice is Michele Bachmann.”[/quote]
I had to protest in my last IFB when the pastor endorsed George W.Bush and basically told us to vote for him and thankfully was apologized to. There were a few others in the church who agreed with me. But over the years, watching this stuff, the majority in the churches even fundamentalist ones have united with deceptive politics. Today God has shown me more, while I know there are a few good churches out there still, there is much to be concerned about even with fundamentalist churches. I have to admit the me of today could not abide by the Pre-Trib deceptions, automatic embracing of the religious right, and Dominionism in many IFB churches anymore.
The Southern Baptists already openly support the NWO preachers every chance they get and Santorum is on that list too. He has already spoken at their churches as well.
I guess with these folks POLITICS trumps everything else, Santorum doesn't keep his views secret regarding Protestantism while they are deceived by the culture wars:
He also doesn't keep his views about separation of church and state secret either.
They ignore the fact the church he supports is the Roman Catholic church.
