The Immoral Religious Right

It's long been evident that given a choice between a candidate who opposes high taxes, the welfare state and the war in Iraq and a candiate who supports high taxes, the welfare state and the war in Iraq most Republicans would choose the latter. They simply care more about killing brown people than they do reducing the size of government. What is shocking is that so many so-called Christian conservatives put a higher value on killing foreigners than they do on banning abortion and stopping gay marriage.

Evangelical Christian leader Pat Robertson on Wednesday endorsed former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who has struggled to bridge with conservatives some of his socially moderate policy positions on abortion and gay rights.

"The overriding issue before the American people, is the defense of our population against the bloodlust of Islamic terrorists," Robertson told the National Press Club audience. "Our world faces deadly peril...and we need a leader with a bold vision who is not afraid to tackle the challenges ahead."

Robertson said Giuliani is "a proven leader who is not afraid of what lies ahead and who will cast a hopeful vision for all Americans ... It is my hope and prayer that he will lead the Republican Party to victory in November of 2008."

I guess supporting abortion and civil unions is ok as long as you want to burn Muslims at the stake.
