An earful of truth for ‘values voters’ from Ron Paul
I get to my God through Christ. Christ to me is a man of peace. He is for peace. He is not for war... I strongly believe that there is a Christian doctrine of just war, and I believe the nation has drifted from that. No matter what the rationales are, we have drifted from that, and it's very, very dangerous. And I see it in many ways being un-Christian.

Christ is for love and forgiveness and turning the other cheek, for peace. And to justify what we do in the name of Christianity, I think, is very dangerous and not part of what Christianity is all about. Christ came for spiritual reasons, not secular war and boundaries and geography. And yet we are now dedicating so much of our aggressive activity in the name of God... he is the prince of peace. That is what I see from my God and through Christ. I vote for peace.
