Rand Paul: America at 'Day of Reckoning' Like Before the Civil War
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul spoke, along with Ted Cruz, at this week’s Religious Right summit in Iowa, organized by Christian-nation advocate David Lane. Echoing themes from his speech last year to the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Paul gave his audience what they wanted, calling for a “revival” and comparing current times to the leadup to the Civil War.
“America is in a full-blown crisis, I think a spiritual crisis,” he said. Quoting Lincoln, Paul declared that we have “arrived at a day of reckoning” similar to the “tumultuous time when the country was being torn apart” before the Civil War.
“What America needs is a revival,” Paul says. “A war is being waged between those who understand and embrace America’s exceptional founding and those who simply want to divide.”
He closes his remarks with a quotation from Thomas Paine, a noted critic of Christianity.
Clips from the speech were originally posted by CBN’s David Brody.
