The Evangelical Right is feeding upon itself.
The Money Quotes:
- “Mr. Roberson’s endorsement of Rudy Giuliani is betrayal of the unborn children Pat Robertson is sworn to protect, and treachery of the highest order against Gospel Mr. Robertson professes to believe.”
- “Is Pat Robertson so terrified of Hillary that he will betray the Right to Life, Marriage, Self-defense, and The Church Herself as long as a fellow Republican snatches power? Rudy may wade through the blood of the innocent to reach the throne; he may be a stench in the nostrils of Angels â€“ and the nostrils of devils for that matter â€“ but at least Rudy is a stench that comes from the GOP stable â€“ and he’s not Hillary. Is this the conviction we expect from Christian Leaders?”
- “Rudy may prove to be a far greater threat to “family values” than Hillary. Here’s why: an enemy outside your camp (Hillary) makes you vigilant; an enemy inside your tent (Rudy) makes you dead. He can cut your throat in the night, or poison your food in the day. Rudy will slowly destroy the meager gains we have made, and will set the core of the GOP at war with itself. He will set the pro-life movement back 20 years; he will aid those who scoff at our right to self-defense; and believe me, he will be marching in the homosexual parades while he assures Pat Robertson and the Religious Right that he supports family values. At that point, the GOP will be a perverse echo of the Democratic Party.”
- “In the eyes of the Angels, we may find that Hillary’s pure evil is far less putrid and damnable than the hypocritical and seductive evil of Rudy’s caliber. After all, Rudy has seduced one of the major leaders of the Religious Right. Even Hillary couldn’t pull that off.”
The cannibalization of the Evangelical Pro-Life Right.
The question is: Will Pat Robertson’s endorsement hurt Rudy in the GOP primaries?
