Candidates answer questions on religion
God Voter dot org asked the candidates 30 questions about their faith. Duncan Hunter is THE ONLY candidate from either party to have answered the questions in full. They conclude about Duncan with this-
Current Status: Congressman Duncan Hunter has shared his Christian testimony.
While we don't agree with all of his opinions, we were impressed with the majority of them and particularly impressed with his candor and courage (e.g., see his answer to question 9).
We knew very little about this Congressman from California until receiving his answers, which made us take another look. Frankly, we liked what we found, including the following:
He walks his talk. His pro-life, anti-embryonic stem cell research, anti-pornography, anti-illegal immigration and pro-strong defense positions are backed by the bills he authored, the border fence he built, his service as an Army Ranger in Vietnam and his own son having served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a US Marine.
Congressman Hunter, who has been married to one wife, is a Christian who testifies about the Lord when asked, has been re-elected six times, has gravitas, and his tenure as the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee should be useful to leading a nation fighting two wars.
Why isn't Congressman Hunter doing better in the polls?
The main reason may be most people knowing as little about him as we knew prior to receiving his answers, simplistically as the "border guy" from a border area. We think the problem is exposure, not quality. In terms of the latter, he is the strongest candidate in the field.
Congressman Hunter, we thank you for your Christ-honoring testimony, congratulate you on your candidacy, and strongly encourage you and your staff to remain in the race to the end. We want you to win the Presidency. But even if you don't, we think the Lord will be pleased with a candidate who ran the race focused on Him instead of the poll numbers.
Our rating for Congressman Hunter as the next President of the United States is an A.
Question Nine you ask?
9. If you had to choose between God and country, which would you choose?
Congressman Hunter: "By choosing the Lord, I honor my country."
I think many of you will relate to what Duncan has to offer and why the others are not participating.
