Rand Paul Tied to Evangelical Demanding War Against ‘Pagan’ Imposed ‘Homosexual Marriage’
Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul has political and financial ties to a certified anti-gay hate group and to a Christian Evangelical political “kingmaker” and his politically-focused religious organization. Senator Paul’s trip to Israel earlier this year was funded by the American Family Association and organized by the American Renewal Project’s David Lane, who receives much of his and his group’s funding from the AFA. Lane made headlines this week for an anti-gay op-ed he wrote for World Net Daily, calling for a “war to restore a Christian America.”

Reporting on Senator Paul’s trip to Israel earlier this year, Business Insider noted it was “organized by evangelical kingmaker David Lane.”
And the Washington Times offered this admission from Lane:
“This trip to meet with Israelis, Arabs and Palestinians is absolutely the first step in his 2016 White House campaign,” said David Lane, evangelical political organizer and president of the Los Angeles-based Pastors and Pews.
Also writing of the trip, the progressive Jewish website Mondoweiss suggested that Senator Paul “is a participant in a mission trip funded by an evangelical media organization dubbed a ‘hate group’ by the Southern Law Poverty Center for anti-gay bigotry.”
Paul’s trip was financed by the American Family Association, a right-wing lobby group and a Christian media enterprise whose airways froth about the “homosexual lobby” and the likelihood that anti-discrimination legislation will lead to gay men in “stilettos, a dress and dangly earrings” bombarding Christian bookstores for sales jobs. Their anti-gay rhetoric even caught the ire of mainstream media. Last year, CNN’s Carol Costello cut an interview short with AFA spokesperson and radio jockey Bryan Fischer who claimed that Hitler surrounded himself with gay “storm troopers to be his enforcers” because according to Fischer straight storm troopers found moral objection to Nazism.
The New Civil Rights Movement reported on the above this year:

The ties don’t just stop there. The National Review, home to Maggie Gallagher, neocons, racists past and present, and the elite radical right, reveals the David Lane’s “daughter works as a press assistant to [Senator] Paul.
As it turns out, David Lane, Senator Paul, and other radical Republicans will be spending even more time together this year
