  1. These Christian leaders are just like their Islamic counterparts. They want our troops to fight their religious wars. And then they sanctimoniously claim that they are pro-life. Makes me want to puke. I gave up on the church long ago. There is no difference between the Pharisees of Jesus’ day and today’s Christian leaders. Some are in it for the power and others for the money. Either way, i’s a scam. No thanks, count me out. If I had to find a person who displays a true Christian character, I’ll be hard pressed to find anyone more eligible than Ron Paul, and yet the vast majority of Christians and their leaders lust after a seat at the table and endorse these political hacks.

  2. This election will be about American keeping her liberty. Without liberty the church or it’s leaders won’t have a first amendment right to say anything.
    The power hungry will get what they deserve.
    As for me and my house we will support Ron Paul for Liberty’s sake.

  5. Can you put me on the list? I think it would be hilarious to have “Ronnie Parrott – Minister to Students Highview Baptist Church, Valley Station Campus endorses Mike Huckabee” What do you think? I show all my friends and family your blog. Ha!

  6. Here’s another endorsement:

    Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell…plans to campaign for Obama

    A “pastor” who thinks a partial-birth abortion proponents has “character, confidence and courage”??

  7. It is sad that abortion is no longer an issue.

  8. Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell is assigned to Windsor Village Methodist church in HOUSTON, Texas. Not DALLAS.

  9. [...] Denny Burk spreads the news that Dobson is likely to endorse Huckabee. [...]
