From the New York Times:
Rudolph W. Giuliani is a supporter of gay and abortion rights who is building his Republican primary campaign around his response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Pat Robertson, the Christian conservative broadcaster, once said permissiveness toward homosexuality and abortion led to God’s “lifting his protection” to allow those attacks.
But there they were Wednesday morning, Mr. Robertson endorsing Mr. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, as “an acceptable” Republican “who can win the general election.”
I would like to hold to my position of reminding everyone that Mr. Robertson founded “Operation Blessing”, which helps thousands of people each year in disaster areas.
I would also like to deviate from my historical position of defending Pat Robertson on this incredulous endorsement – why would he support someone with a track record of undermining everything Pat has stood for, save the defense issue? Has he discovered a new herb or chemical perhaps? Strange twist, I guess Pat doesn’t wear a Life band from the Call…
To my readers who may live in the Tidewater area, I am wondering what the general response to this is in the “family values” community… I just can’t defend Pat on this one.
PS – What would Jerry Falwell think??? This is truly bizarre.
