Paul Broun on Principles & Values

Republican

 


Biblical morality is spiritual foundation of our nation

Question topic: Efforts to bring Islamic law (shariah) to America do not pose a threat to our country and its Constitution.

Broun: Strongly Disagree

Question topic: Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Broun: Strongly Agree.

Question topic: Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Broun: I am an evangelical Christian who upholds the orthodox, cardinal doctrines of the faith. I believe in the eternal existence of one, true, living, triune God. I believe that Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, was God manifested in human flesh and that He came to earth to be the Redeemer of the human race through His vicarious, atoning death on the Cross as foretold in prophecy. I believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God. I believe that biblical morality and biblical principles are the spiritual foundation of our nation and that our Founders recognized their importance.

Separation of church and state is a mistaken idea

Broun, in a speech from the House floor, mixed personal religious testimony with Christian-nation claims. Broun's remarks start with a core Christian Reconstructionist principle: that God ordained family, church and government and gave each a specific area of authority. But, he says, because of "this mistaken idea that we're supposed to have a separation of church and state, the family and the church have abdicated a lot of its duties over to government." (Reconstructionists believe that God did not authorize government to be involved, for example, in education or the reduction of poverty; that role is meant for family and church.)

Broun calls the Bible "the basis of our nation," and says the fact that we aren't running society accordingly will mean the death of our Republic. The founding fathers, he says, were "Bible-believing Christians" who believed that "every aspect of life should follow the dictates of God's inerrant word. That's what I believe in. That's what we should all believe in."

Member of the Tea Party movement.

Broun is a member the Tea Party movement

The Tea Party movement is a populist conservative social movement in the United States that emerged in 2009 through a series of locally and nationally coordinated protests. The protests were partially in response to several Federal laws: the stimulus package; te healthcare bill; and the TARP bailouts. The name "Tea Party" refers to the Boston Tea Party of 1773, the source of the phrase, "No Taxation Without Representation."
