Paul Ryan Attacks Obama’s Lack Of Christian Values, Suggests Obama Rejects ‘Western Civilization’

Paul Ryan attacked Obama’s “Christian values” or alleged lack thereof in a conference call with Evangelical supporters, saying the President is setting the country on a “dangerous” course should he be re-elected.

Paul Ryan’s comments about Obama’s Christian values were made on the call with supporters Sunday night, hosted by Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition. “Tens of thousands” of supporters were on the Paul Ryan call Sunday night, ABC reports.

Paul Ryan’s remarks about Obama’s Christian values are a common theme in the coming election, one many say is a race-based “dog whistle” owing to the President’s skin color and upbringing during which he lived abroad at some points. Ryan didn’t say specifically which values Obama, who is a Christian, threatens as he spoke to the voters who called in to the conference.

Ryan said:

“[Obama’s values set America on] a dangerous path … It’s a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty, and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, western civilization values that made us such a great an exceptional nation in the first place.”

The VP contender leaned heavily on voter fear of a second Obama term during the call, suggesting that the President will restrict Christians if re-elected and added:

“We should not have to sue the federal government to keep our constitutional freedoms … Imagine what he would do if he actually got reelected. It just puts a chill down my spine.”

Paul Ryan’s comments about Obama’s danger to Christian values follows an automatic call made to Republican voters recently in which the campaign is said to have warned voters that “we can’t underestimate the threat Barack Obama poses to our faith, our values, our freedom.”

    As an Evangelical Christian, I object when Ryan and friends suggest that their values are in any way the same as mine. I believe I'm called to serve widows and orphans, welcome strangers, work for peace, speak the truth even when it hurts, care for creation, advocate for workers and stand against anyone who would exploit the poor or take advantage of those in need. I'm called to see that healing is available to everyone, and to make sure that those in prison are treated justly. The values Ryan demonstrates are antithetical to the good news of Jesus Christ. I would also note that Reed's "Faith and Freedom Coalition" is far more about power and cynical manipulation than either faith or freedom, and should be an embarrassment to anyone who takes faith and freedom seriously.
