You should not post LIES about Ron Paul.
You're website is a disgrace and that is non-patriotic which is bad for Americans everywhere !
We are sorry about this, Roast Beef. We will try to be more patriotic the next time we write about how Ron Paul will not even be president of his congressional district in Texas, let alone America.
Let's see what else is in the old mailbag today. Ah, angry/sincere letters about your editor not having enough of the religious Jesus faith, that's what. Why does anyone care? It seems we posted something very scholarly about whether or not Barack Obama was the AntiChrist, about a decade ago. And somehow it ended up on the Born Agains' website. (They have websites now!)

In October 2006, you posted these words and phrases in a diatribe about Barack Obama and people who actually believe in God and in every word of the Holy Bible:
Crazy Jesus Freak stuff
Meager source material
Magic tricks attributed to Jesus in the Gospels
Most Jesus Freaks are Red-Staters
The real Jesus appears and rapes you to death
Ken, I typically don't waste time reading trash like this. But I was researching Obama and all the myths around his so-called candidacy and stumbled upon it. In the first few lines of your post, I was unsure where you were headed, but I cringed as I continued to read. Obviously, you are a non-believer, and I sincerely feel sorry for you.
Nonetheless, I respect your right to free speech. Obviously, you are taking full advantage of it. However, you managed to insult and, I'm sure, outrage countless Christians in this country with such labels as "Jesus Freak." But that's fine. The persecution of Christians will exist as long as Earth exists. What you are doing is nothing new to us. I've spent most of my life facing persecution, as a minority and as a Christian. It only makes me stronger and even more determined to follow Christ.
Sir, the Holy God you refuse to acknowledge allows you to be stupid, hateful, angry, jealous and ignorant. It's called free will. God will never force you to accept Him. But He does love you, despite your unwillingness to love Him and therefore unable to begin your life anew.
I live in a red state. So, according to you, I am a nut, a Jesus Freak, living in "Jesus Land," as filmmaker Michael Moore called it just before President Bush won his second term in office.
Call us freaks. That's fine. Call us nuts. That's fine. Consider the Bible some antiquated book authored by a "collective ass." That's fine. Spread lies about Christianity and encourage others to join your hate-mongering. That's fine. Because I am sure that wherever you spend most of your time a church or two is nearby. I encourage you to wake up one Sunday morning and attend a service. Or are you too much of a coward to face the very people you condemn as freaks and nuts?
Usually, I don't bother sharing the Gospel with people like you, because people like you generally aren't interested in the truth. And it takes one of those Heavenly miracles you mock to soften your heart enough to pull you to Christ.
However, in your October 2006 "Meet the Antichrist" post, you referenced several scriptures. So I will reference one of them as well and end with that:
John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."
Notwithstanding attending church services, countless Web sites can help you come to Christ. Here are a few links:
May God save your soul. Meanwhile, take the time to actually learn the scriptures, to actually know God and His people, before you condemn both.
Red-State Jesus Freak and Nut
