    Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson Announces Personal Endorsement of Governor Romney for President of the United States

    [FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]LOS ANGELES,[/FONT][/FONT] [FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]February 4[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT] /Christian Newswire/ -- Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, author, radio host and Founder and President of BOND, the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny, announced this morning his personal endorsement of Governor Mitt Romney for President of the United States:

    "I have never before endorsed a candidate for President of the United States, but the circumstances that have been placed upon us and the gravity of this election have caused me to come forward at this time.

    "Love of God, family and country are the most important values in my life. All are under attack in America as never before. I believe that Governor Romney, though not without flaws in his record, is a decent, highly capable man who believes in these same values.

    "I also understand that America as we know it will cease to exist if we continue our course of leaving our borders largely unprotected; and all other issues of contention will become moot. Governor Romney, through his statements and the recent addition of border enforcement warrior Professor Kris Kobach to his advisory staff, is indicating that he understands the severity of this issue.

    "In contrast, Senator McCain has co-sponsored legislation to give amnesty to illegal aliens, and named open borders advocate and former member of Mexican President Vicente Fox's administration, Dr. Juan Hernandez, as his Hispanic Outreach Director.

    "As for Senators Clinton and Obama, because of their lack of will to secure our borders, as well as their commitment to unrestricted abortion, increased taxes and regulation, and an appeasement strategy toward our enemies, are unworthy of endorsement consideration.

    "My endorsement of Governor Romney is personal. I am in no way speaking on behalf of my organization, BOND. America is the greatest country in the world. I am committed to preserving and protecting it for future generations, and I believe today's endorsement is in keeping with that commitment."

    Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is the host of "The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show." The program airs M-F, 3-5 p.m. PST / 6-8 p.m. EST. For more information, visit www.bondinfo.org

    McCain, Huckabee Worst Picks for Evangelicals

    [FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]MEDIA ADVISORY,[/FONT][/FONT] [FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Feb. 4[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT] /Christian Newswire/ -- The Reverend Rob Schenck (pronounced SHANK), in his capacity as a private citizen, today released this statement regarding tomorrow's primary votes:

    "I have spent the last 33 years as an active evangelical Christian. I am an ordained evangelical minister. I graduated from an evangelical Bible college and an evangelical seminary. I serve on the board of America's oldest association of evangelical church leaders, and I head one of the most active evangelical ministries in Washington, DC.

    "I have thought long and hard about the upcoming elections. I have prayed earnestly about them, and I have met many of the candidates and their top campaign people and I have studied their platforms and policy proposals.

    "After careful and prayerful consideration, I have concluded that an evangelical vote for Mike Huckabee is a vote for John McCain, and a vote for John McCain will be a disaster for this country.

    "Let me explain. It's clear to me and many others that Mike Huckabee is not broadening his appeal enough to win the primary. Therefore, his only contribution is to siphon off votes, giving McCain a clear path to victory. It's very possible Huckabee is being positioned to be John McCain's pick for vice president. In order to win, McCain needs Mike Huckabee and the evangelical votes he brings with him. The specter of a McCain- Huckabee ticket is bad for evangelicals.

    "McCain is proud of his signature accomplishment, the McCain-Feingold law co-authored with liberal Democrat senator Russ Feingold. McCain-Feingold severely limits the First Amendment rights of evangelicals. McCain will use this law as the litmus test for his Supreme Court nominees. If a judge is likely to be against McCain's unconstitutional law, McCain will not nominate him. Make no mistake about it, constitutional originalist judges will be against McCain-Feingold. These same judges will also be pro-life, for traditional marriage and for the public acknowledgment of God.

    "Only liberal judges will support McCain-Feingold. They will also be pro-abortion, anti-traditional marriage and against the public acknowledgement of God. So, with a McCain-Huckabee administration, or with a McCain-anyone administration, we get the wrong judges. Most distressing, we get the wrong justices on the U.S. Supreme Court.

    "Evangelicals must consider both the stakes and the realities in this election. Mike Huckabee's continuation only helps John McCain. The consequences are just too great to take this risk. A McCain victory will hurt this country because of the long-term damage of the wrong judges and justices. Worse, McCain's court legacy will continue to hurt our children and our grandchildren, perhaps even our great grandchildren.

    "Evangelicals must choose wisely from among candidates other than Mike Huckabee and John McCain as they vote tomorrow, February 5."

    For identification purposes only, the Reverend Rob Schenck (pronounced SHANK) is president of Faith and Action in the Nation's Capital, chairman of the Committee on Church and Society for the Evangelical Church Alliance and co-founder of the annual National Memorial for the Pre-born and their Mothers and Fathers, the only pro-life worship service held inside the U.S. Capitol complex in Washington, DC.

    Frankly, who cares who endorses Mitt Romney. He is dishonest, and I would not vote for him for dog catcher.
