Rand Paul: Aid fueling ‘war on Christianity’
Addressing the 2013 Value Voters Summit, Senator Rand Paul likened US foreign aid to a fueling a war on Christianity.
Sen. Rand Paul on Friday detailed his opposition to sending foreign aid to many places in the Middle East, arguing that doing so will fuel a “worldwide war on Christianity.”
“We are now arming Islamic rebels who are allied with Al Qaeda that attacked us on 9/11,” Paul (R-Ky.) said, speaking to the Values Voter Summit. “Does that make any sense at all? American tax dollars should never be spent to prop up a war on Christianity. But that’s what’s happening now across the globe.”
