Here we go again. Fanatic TV personality Pat Robertson has come out to announce his support for Republican Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani. This blatent attempt to persuade the Christian right is just plain sickening. Yes, we all know Giuliani is less than perfect (heck, if he is elected, he’ll be the first divorced man in the White House) I laughed when I read the headline to this story…literally. Here is the first paragraph from it:
Pat Robertson, the television evangelist and Christian Coalition founder, endorsed Republican White House hopeful Rudy Giuliani for president when the two men appeared together at the National Press Club in Washington on Wednesday.
Robertson said he decided to endorse Giuliani because he was “a proven leader who is not afraid of what lies ahead and who will cast a hopeful vision for all Americans.”
If that is the only reason Robertson is supporting Giuliani, then that is enough reason to support about 70% of the candidates. What sickens me is that Robertson didn’t just come out of the woodwork to support his “pal” Giuliani. He was sought out, and brought to the front so all the world could see that a, GASP, fundamentalist Christian supports this man.
and heck, if Robertson supports him…he MUST be good right? HA!
Sadly, all the “Robertsonites” will blindly follow their leader’s word. I mean, this makes sense after contributing thousands of dollars to his
As I have said, religion and politics are arguably impossible to separate. Especially when politicians seek campaign help from attention seeking millionaire “preachers”.
