Ron Paul is Booed for Suggesting “Golden Rule” Foreign Policy in South Carolina, a State Tied for First in Highest Church-Attendance
South Carolina audience rejects “golden rule” foreign policy suggested by Ron Paul by booing him. Seems the pulpits in SC are spreading the gospel of “bomb the fuck out of your neighbor”

In last night’s FOX News debate, Newt Gingrich and went head-to-head with Ron Paul on the topic of what should be done to America’s enemies. As Newt was trying to make his point that killing Bin Laden was the right thing to do, he brought up Andrew Jackson’s early service in the Revolutionary War.
“[Jackson] was sabered by a British officer and wore a scar his whole life. Andrew Jackson had a pretty clear cut idea about America’s enemies…kill them.”
At these words, the so-called religious South Carolina crown erupted with applause and several people were seen putting their fists in the air as to say, “yeah…kill them!”.
Ron Paul is then allowed to speak and begins to utter very strange words to a so-called religious South Carolina crowd…a suggestion to adopt the golden rule when it comes to foreign policy.
“My point is, if another country does to us what we do to others, we’re not going to like it very much. I would say that maybe we ought to consider a golden rule in foreign policy.”
Here, a strange thing occurred. Right after Congressman Paul talks about a golden rule, the crown erupts with boos. That’s right, from the highest church-going state in America, South Carolina…boos for the golden rule. Wow. Then, within 20 seconds, the same crowd that just booed Ron Paul begins to cheer!
“Don’t do to other nations what we don’t want have them do to us. So, we endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us? And yet, it continues on and on and on. This idea that we can’t debate foreign policy then all we have to do is start another war? I mean, it’s warmongering, building up for another war against Iran. People can’t wait to get into another war…this country doesn’t need another war, we need to quit the ones we’re in, we need to save the money and bring our troops home.”
At this, the crowd applauded. These South Carolinians are off their rocker. They boo the Biblical principle of the golden rule and applaud ending wars and bringing troops home.
A 2006 survey shows that South Carolina is tied for #1 for church attendance, yet Ron Paul is booed for suggesting that the United States develop a “golden rule” foreign policy. Why would the #1 church-attending state boo this?
The answer is clear: Religious people, above all others, make up the majority of those in this country who have the most warped concept of people in other countries and their different religions. It is Christians, above all, who want other religions wiped out and non-Christians bombarded with bombs. There is no other explanation for the reason why Ron Paul was booed about this issue than the one just provided.
