BOND President Rev. Jessie Lee Peterson Picks Romney
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."
