Re: That thump you heard was my jaw dropping: Pat Robertson endorses Guiliani
I didn't know there was an organizational chart of 350 million people in
the USA, where old Pat was at the top of this category.
He is a famous Christian preacher, a successful and groundbreaking television
figure, and a man who ran for the office 20 years ago. I give him all that, and
The 700 Club is a popular show on ION and other small networks.
But, the man does not speak for every person who calls themself a Christian. Nor
Nor should Oral Roberts or Benny Hinn or Rick Warren or Paula White (a recent divorcee)
or Joyce Meyers.
I'm not surprised by it though.
Robertson has made foreign policy a top issue of his for years. On that one issue, he
puts Rudy above all the others, by making the safety of the USA #1. Without the security
of the USA in tact, the Constitution falls away, and the Christian foundation of the USA
The 700 Club can influence a lot of people, it does give Rudy a boost from the right.
Also, ignoring Rudy and possibly the GOP candidate, only makes your vote a little less
viable later on. Pat Roberston gets that too. Be heard or not heard at all at the RNC.
Rudy has made a good run of late making speeches to Christian outlets, about abortion, and
his stand on it, and his stand on the judges. A man who will choose conservative judges
in Rudy's case is how he tries to offset his liberal abortion stand. He is against
partial birth abortion, and additional funding for abortion, and laws that keep parents
out of the equation with minors. He has some mild credentials on the issue. Not much
Which is why a Rudy-Romney ticket would likely emerge. Rudy needs a visible, strong, vocal
conservative on his ticket.
