Ron Paul surprised delegates at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference last week by quoting long portions of the Bible to buttress his political views. Romney, Bachman, Pawlenty and most of the other GOP presidential hopefuls showed up at the event. The Faith and Freedom Coalition is organized by Ralph Reed and is referred to by some as the new Christian Coalition. But while some of the speakers stumbled uncomfortably over Christian buzzwords, likely supplied by their handlers, and other speakers ignored the special character of their audience altogether, Ron Paul launched into a scriptural defense of his views.
