Duncan Hunter Interview with the Baptist Press

Posted by sierrascrapper on September 30, 2007

For those of you looking for a President that will lead our nation with God’s hand on his shoulder, look no further than Duncan Hunter.  One of the best quotes from the interview with the Baptist Press is this:

“Like everybody in public life,” he said, “I think you have a constant challenge of serving your job, serving your constituents and at the same time serving God and trying to renew your service to God and your allegiance to God every day. Ensuring His principles are embedded in your service as a representative is a major challenge, but I think that’s something you have to work on every single day.”

I am so inspired by Duncan Hunter and his faith in God.  This man is someone that you can trust to lead our country in the right direction.  Read a few excerpts below…

Duncan Hunter was interviewed by Will Hall, executive editor of the Baptist Press.  An article was written based on the transcipt of the interview by Michael Foust on Sept. 28, 2007.  Full article here

He acknowledges his busy schedule makes it tough to find a regular daily time to pray and read Scripture, but says his faith nonetheless gives him strength. He has a particular interest in the faith of America’s founding fathers and currently is reading “America’s God and Country,” a compilation of quotes highlighting the nation’s Christian heritage.

ON ABORTION & JUDGES: “If a candidate for the federal bench can look at a picture, a sonogram, of an unborn child and not see a valuable human being, I will not appoint that candidate to the federal bench, period.”

ON ‘GAY MARRIAGE’ & JUDGES: “I think that the institution of marriage is probably the most important institution in our country. It is a building block that our entire society is based on because it shapes the character of our children. So, I’m very strong for traditional marriage and if it’s necessary for a constitutional amendment. I will support that. In fact, I’ve supported that in the past.

“Beyond that, I believe in strict constructionist judges. That is, if a judicial candidate feels that somehow people like James Madison and Benjamin Franklin and many other founding fathers didn’t get it right, that he’s going to legislate from the bench, that judicial candidate will never receive a nomination from me.”
