Pat Robertson Hates War Heroes, Actors and Mormons

That is the only conclusion I can draw from his idiotic endorsement of Rudy Giuliani. If there is anyone running for president this year, Democrat or Republican, who embodies the exact opposite of everything the Christian right (supposedly) stands for, it is Giuliani.

Why do you endorse a pro-choice, pro-gay-rights, third-marriage, bad dad when you can endorse candidates who actually agree with most or all of your platform and have less cluttered private lives?

Update: Dan Flynn provides the definitive blog post on the issue.

Pat Robertson seeks the Kingdom, but it’s the one headquartered in Washington, DC. He could have boosted the campaign of a bona fide religious conservative, Mike Huckabee, or any number of pro-life candidates running. Instead, he chose the Republican candidate most diametrically opposed to his professed views: Rudy Giuliani. Why? Because this puts him closer to power.

    don’t forget magic card players.

  2. He says that the war on terror trumps those differences, but I think it is interesting that since he supposedly represents a social issues position of celebrity…yeah interesting choice.

  3. Shortly after 9/11, Robertson released a statement in which he said the attacks occurred because Americans had insulted God and lost the protection of heaven by allowing abortion and “rampant Internet pornography.”

    So Giuliani cleaned up Times Square…but supports the other major thing Robertson blamed the attacks for.

    I wasn’t really looking for something to nail him on but it kind of stands out in the article…
