For the record, I believe elected officials should talk about faith. Our founders believed the moral principles of faith were indispensable to our nation’s survival. The Declaration of Independence mentions God four times.

– Gary Bauer


I have come to the conclusion that while a candidate’s faith matters, what’s most important is how he or she applies that faith.

– Gary Bauer


It’s important to ask candidates about their beliefs, in part because politicians frequently exploit religious faith – often with the idea that voters will be more likely to unthinkingly accept certain political positions so long as they arise from religious belief.

– Gary Bauer


Republican values – strong families, faith, personal responsibility and freedom, among others – are not unique to specific subsets of the electorate. They are universal values, and it is Republicans’ job to remind Americans of that fact.

– Gary Bauer


The question Americans should ask is not whether a candidate is affiliated with a particular faith but rather whether that candidate’s faith makes it more likely he or she will support policies that align with their values.

– Gary Bauer


Big-government proponents embrace both the power of the federal government and the idea that millions of Americans ought to be dependent on its largesse. It’s time to return to our Founders’ love for small government. More is not always better.

I’m against big bureaucracy in Washington making health care decisions. I just have an aversion to bureaucrats. But it’s not just government bureaucrats. I don’t like HMO bureaucrats and insurance company bureaucrats either.

– Gary Bauer


Republicans rarely criticize Obama for lack of empathy – in part because liberals have traditionally been seen as standing up for the weak and the vulnerable. Conservatives can be just as empathetic. But they believe that, in most cases, it’s not government’s role to be the primary dispenser of empathy.

– Gary Bauer


The Left regards the Constitution as defective and outmoded – in part because it impedes the government’s ability to control institutions, like churches and families, which stand between the state and individuals.

– Gary Bauer


Having robbed children of any sense that their Father is in Heaven and that they are His creation, we then launched an experiment in raising them without earthly fathers too. Having neither a Father in heaven or a father in the home, many young men make gangs their families.

– Gary Bauer


The Founders believed liberty came directly from God. With their knowledge of Scripture, they knew each child was made in the image of God. That is why everyone had dignity, value and worth.

If one is going to change the definition of marriage to be, quote, ‘same sex,’ then there is absolutely no valid argument constitutionally or rhetorically you can make against multiple people getting married. These are radical social changes.

– Gary Bauer


If Republicans want to be seen as more compassionate, they should continue to stand proudly for the sanctify of life and marriage. And they should do so without apologizing.

– Gary Bauer


Independence doesn’t – doesn’t equate to moderates. Millions of independents are pro-life. Millions of independents believe marriage is between a man and a woman.

– Gary Bauer


My argument is simple, which is, that for several thousand years in Western civilization, marriage has been the union of one man and one woman. Research is overwhelming that children need mothers and fathers.

– Gary Bauer


Obviously, marriage is not a synonym for morality. But stable marriages and families do encourage moral behavior.

– Gary Bauer


Particularly black Americans, many of them, from quotes that I have seen and conversations I’ve had, are sort of insulted that the civil rights movement is being hijacked – the rhetoric of the civil rights movement is being hijacked for something like same sex marriage. Black Americans tend to have a higher degree of religiosity.

– Gary Bauer


There is something wrong with our culture when the view that marriage is between one man and one woman, a view shared by half the nation, is portrayed as evidence of hatred.

– Gary Bauer


Beyond politics, the West is suffering from what can be called a crisis of brokenness – broken institutions, broken families and broken souls.

– Gary Bauer


Newt Gingrich is one of the brightest people in the Republican Party and he’s always been a little unorthodox in his approach to politics, but that’s what makes him Newt Gingrich.

– Gary Bauer


The science of life is changing hearts and minds.

– Gary Bauer


Obama often criticizes policies that place the interests of the powerful ahead of the powerless. But through his administration’s support of abortion rights, Obama shows his lack of empathy for society’s most powerless.

– Gary Bauer


The stigma that was once attached to things society deemed unhealthy served the purpose of making them undesirable. With the stigma gone, many people see little reason not to do whatever feels good at the moment.

– Gary Bauer


More and more political analysts and weak-kneed politicians are advising the historically pro-life Republican Party to abandon its pro-life stance for political gain. My first response is that if you cannot trust a party on the value of defending human life, how can you trust it on issues like marginal tax rates?

– Gary Bauer


All the culture war issues will be settled by the court.
