Rudy Guiliani and Pat Robertson Sitting in a Tree

November 8, 2007 at 6:53 am Leave a comment

In a move that furthers strips away the lie of him being a moderate, Rudy Guiliani has received the kiss of endorsement from right-wing extremist Pat Robertson. Robertson is the founder of the virulently anti-gay Christian Coalition and has said that the acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings and “possibly a meteor.”

Guiliani and Mitt Romney had both been battling for Robertson’s affection in their attempts to woo the white right that makes up the GOP’s base. Guiliani has gotten Robertson’s promise ring while Romney has caught the eye of Bob Jones III, grandson of the founder of the racist Bob Jones University.

Its funny though that Robertson who has bleated on and on about family values and the sanctity of marriage would endorsed the thrice married Guiliani. I guess the sanctity of marriage only matters when Robertson is bashing gay families.

This endorsement is nothing more than a cynical move by Robertson to disguise the rapidly falling influence of homo-hating evangelicals in our national politics. He is betting that Guiliani is going to win the Republican nomination and he wants to retain some sense of political influence by backing what he sees as the eventual winner. That’s further evidence of just how corrupted Robertson’s brand of Christianist politics is.

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s indeed.
