Protest at CBN: Reproving Pat Robertson for Backing Rudy Giuliani; Randall Terry, Founder of Operation Rescue, to Lead Protest at CBN
VIRGINIA BEACH, Virg., Nov. 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- "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."
"If Rudy Giuliani was a Democrat, Pat Robertson might denounce him as Satan Himself or at least Mayor Beelzebronx - Lord of the N.Y. Flies. Rudy would be the poster boy of CBN attack ads and fundraising appeals."
Protest at CBN, with News Conference
When: Saturday, November 10, 1:30 P.M. (ET)
Where: Main Entrance of CBN, Near Founders Inn, at Indian River Road and Centerville Turnpike
Who: Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue, and pro-life activists from the Virginia Beach Area.
Randall Terry, Founder of Operation Rescue, has the following statement regarding Pat Robertson's endorsement of Rudy Giuliani.
"If Rudy Giuliani was a Democrat, Pat Robertson might denounce him as Satan Himself or at least Mayor Beelzebronx - Lord of the N.Y. Flies. Rudy would be the poster boy of CBN attack ads and fundraising appeals.
"Rudy has perfect credentials on social issues like child-killing, partial birth abortion, federal funding for "poor women" to have abortions, and so-called homosexual marriage or civil unions. Add to that his unblemished betrayal of the Second Amendment, and he would be a stellar Democratic candidate with the ethical stature of Al Sharpton, Al Gore, and Hillary Clinton herself.
"Rudy's treachery to the Catholic Church makes John Kerry look like a choir-boy. During his tenure as mayor Rudy revoked the permit of the Ancient Order of Hibernians for their annual St. Patrick's Day parade. (The Hibernian's are a faithful Catholic Fraternity.) Why? They would not allow homosexual floats to participate in a Catholic Christian parade. The Catholics had to go to Federal Court to get their parade permit back. This is who Pat Robertson is backing.
"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 and the nostrils of devils for that matter but at least Rudy is a stench that comes from the GOP stable 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."
My point all along for people who said they will vote for Rudy if he gets the nod.
Too bad another Christian leader has bought into the media’s scare tactics for Shillery. First the FRC fell for Huckabee’s charms, now Pat Robertson’s amazing infatuation with Giuliani. Anyone who says that some Christians are not naive is whistling in the wind.
I hadn’t heard that Hillary had promised to appoint originalist judges.
Planned Parenthood should offer Pat a seat on their board of directors, now that he has changed his position.
Giuliani can’t appoint anybody to the court, he can only nominate. Once he goes through the motions of nominating a strict constructionist, he will gladly settle for a Sutter(sp?) or Ginsburg(sp?).
Has anyone heard his reasoning or a response from him?
Rudy is the best hope we have.
Hope for what? Becoming demoncRATs?
Robertson deserves all the scorn he gets for this.
hilary or Rudy...you vote for????????
I heard Rudy promised him a seat on the Supreme Court...
Neither, so the GOP shouldn’t try to offer that as a choice.
It would mean as much as Rudy's promise to if she did.
That’s a VERY disturbing sentiment.
Any one other than Rudy will give another clinton vs. Dole result. What the hell are you thinking?
Real smart...Wont vote??
You may want to look at what this Nation is facing and rethink your position. But, not voting at all is a solid option. God save us all.
So you would rather have Clinton?? You ave to be pulling my leg? Right?
I hadn’t heard that Rudy had gotten the nomination as yet. These aren’t our choices as of today.
I’ll vote, and your RinoRudy only can win crap doesn’t fly here. How did JR miss you in Feb?
First of all, a man who would lie to his wives and break his marriage vows can’t be trusted at his word. And if he does appoint an originalist, although he has said “constructionist”, he could appoint someone so obviously conservative, knowing that they wouldn’t be confirmed, and then go on to nominate someone like Souter. This way he could say, “Well, at least I tried.”
Miss me in Feb.? What does that mean????
I'm not going to sit out, vote for a Democrat, or squander my vote on a third party protest.
But . . .
I don't believe we're anywhere near hand-wringing time. Part of it doesn't even depend on the Republican candidate. It just might depend on how many independents and crossovers agree with Lieberman's judgment upon the Democratic Party, that they place the quest for party supremacy above American interests.
Putting my flame suit on.
I wouldn't waste my vote on either one.
I too like Fred. He just does not seem to have it together at all.
“Rudy is the best hope we have.”
I certainly don’t think so!! GO FRED!
“Rudy is the best hope we have”.
Answer to your kids in 20 years.
won’t get flamed by me. He’s as good or better than any of the others.
Best hope for what? It's clear by the comments on the original article that evangelicals believe they are better off in the long run suffering through the blatant evil of Hillary such as it is than to compromise their beliefs by going along to get along. Whether or not you agree, it will be the reality of a Hillary presidency if we nominate Rudy as our "savior"
Me? It’s not my idea, I’m just passing on what I heard.
It’s only funny cuz it’s true.
Bravo, my sentiments exactly. Its about time someone comes out and says it.
Rooty is an abomination to all this party has stood for since Reagan.
On another thread Pat calls himself an idiot.
That being said Rudy won’t be the republican nominee unless it’s fixed. His N.E. republican credentials aren’t going to win the red states.
Fred’s truck may be a little slow on take off but once it get’s up to speed I think you’ll want to climb on board.
I believe that I understand Pat’s motivation in doing this...
The key is a modern-day prophet named Kim Clement...
Not suprising, the nutjobs on the far right, are no less insane than the nutjobs on the far left.
As they'd say where I'm from: 'Ya'll ain't from around here, are you, boy'. You all don't understand. If you think you can write off the deep south, and still win the general election, you probably need to count up electoral votes again.
Wrong. Giuliani is the only pubbie who cannot beat Clinton.
Reason: His position on key issues is too close to hers. Therefore a significant portion of conservatives would not vote for him. He would lose by an embarrassing margin.
You’re right, and I can’t see any reason for die-hard Democrats to cross over and vote Giuliani.
Like Rudy seems to have it at all together?
Can you please point me to something that gives this conservative 1 good reason to even consider this man as a candidate for the Republican party? Or even 2 bad reasons?
Just so ya know where I am coming from - Iowa. He knew his nonsense wouldn’t play in Iowa, so he bowed out. His n percent in a state where he didn’t even campaign will be a wonderful result for him and propel him to yadda yadda yadda.
When the media starts fawning over him, will that make you leary???
Absolutely, I would. Giuliani moves the Republican party to the left, guaranteed no conservative President until 2016 and eliminates any chance of Republicans taking back Congress.
Hillary is so liberal that she paves the way for another Reagan or '94 Republican revolution.
