Pat Robertson Endorses Guiliani

I'm really underwhelmed by the first-tier candidates this election. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton? I'll be praying for enough money to move to Australia if that happens. Barak Obama? Does anybody know what he stands for except for dancing well? As for the Republicans, we have a pro-choice, adulterer divorcee and a Mormon. Not that Mormons aren't nice or anything, and I think that in general Mitt Romney could do a good job, but I'm afraid that a Mormon president would make it more disagreeable to say that Mormons and Christians are of different faiths. I really like governor Huckabee, and I'd vote for him if he actually gets the nomination. He seems to be gaining in the polls, so we'll see. But he still seems to be a dark horse. I like Duncan Hunter too, mainly because back when I was in the military and was having problems, he retrieved thousands of dollars for me that the Navy had wrongfully taken from me... sometimes it helps to write to your congressman, and it paid off big time that time.

I heard today that Pat Robertson is endorsing Rudy Guiliani. I don't think that Pat Robertson's endorsement carries the weight that it did oh... 20 years ago or so, but I still find it disturbing. I know that Guiliani did really well after 9/11, but to be perfectly honest, terrorism isn't my top concern. More people die from bathtub drownings than terrorism. He's got way too many marks against him in my book. If it was just the abortion issue, that would be one thing. If it was just the divorce issue, fine. We've already had more than one adulterer in the White House, so if it was just that... okay.

Dr. James Dobson said the other day that voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for... evil. And if we're talking about human lives being saved here... a lot more people die from abortion every year than terrorism. It just doesn't impress me. Last election I voted 3rd party, and I don't regret it. If it comes down between Guiliani and Clinton, I'll vote 3rd party again.

While it seems like people know who is going to get the nomination, a lot of things could change in the next few months. Four years ago, Mr. Yippee Yee Haw Howard Dean was the front runner, but he kind of ruined his chances. So I suppose that there is still hope. But it is disappointing when a "Christian" leader endorses someone with so many strikes against him. I know that we have all fallen short of the glory of God, and we should forgive, but at the same time, the Bible also doesn't have a problem from disqualifying people from certain offices due to their past. Haven't we had enough presidents being voted into office with tarnished reputations already?

Fake Christian Conservatives Expose Themselves As Neocon Shills Once
Robertson and Hagee willing servants of those engendering a clash of civilizations

Fake Christian conservative Pat Robertson has hit the headlines again by throwing his hat in with Rudy Giuliani, a man who supports the continued war in Iraq, supports the preemptive bombing of Iran, is pro-abortion and is an
adulterer who has been married on three different occasions.

Also noteworthy is that fact that Giuliani is supportive of gay rights, an issue, along with abortion, that Robertson has for years made the crux of his programming.

Regardless of where you stand on these issues, for Robertson to turn
around and say they no longer matter, and what is more important is the battle against "Isamofascism", highlights just how much of a total and
complete hypocrite the man is and how he has long been willing to be used as a political tool for the neoconservative movement.

Jerry Mazza over at Online Journal, has an excellent critique which gives further insight into the use of evangelism for political gain.
Describing Robertson's Dominionist movement, he comments:

"From 1982 through '86, Robertson, plus other radio and TV
evangelists, rallied Christian soldiers to this new political faith. It turned them literally into an army of political ops. Most of us didn't have a clue
that this 'militant agenda' dressed up as Christianity's lamb was licking its chops with a scheme for a government coup that would turn the U.S. into a
wolf (or Wolfowitz), seeking a world empire for the 21st Century. Yet as early as 1994, lone journalist Frederick Clarkson warned that Dominionism
'seeks to replace democracy with a theocratic elite that would govern
by imposing their interpretation of 'Biblical Law.'' And this to
eliminate" . . . labor unions, civil rights laws and public schools.'"

Last year Robertson hit headlines for telling his viewers that Islam
wants to take over the world and is not a religion of peace, and that radical Muslims are "satanic." "The goal of Islam, ladies and gentlemen whether
you like it or not, is world domination," said Robertson.

Robertson's past comments also underscore the fact that nobody other than Robertson himself has done more to desert so-called Christian principles.

No matter how idiotic, Robertson has a right to say whatever he likes under the 1st Amendment. This isn't a 'hate speech' issue. The issue is that Robertson is a complete hypocrite and he is aiding the downfall of
Christianity in America by defaming every major tenet of the Bible.

In April 2001 Robertson supported China's brutal policy of forced
abortion and said that the Communist country was "doing what they have to do" in keeping population numbers down. It is not Christian to advocate even
voluntary abortion on the part of the mother, never mind such a
tyrannical model of forced abortion as part of a wider eugenics agenda as is the
case in China.

Whenever the subject of implantable chips has been raised on the 700 Club, Robertson has whitewashed the issue, saying that it doesn't represent the
mark of the beast and that Christians should not be concerned about it.
This directly contradicts the Bible and Revelation.

Last year Robertson caused waves when he advocated the ssassination of Venezuelan populist president Hugo Chavez. In doing so Robertson is nailing his colors to the wall as a firm minion of the New World Order. Chavez has
rallied against the Globalists at every turn, including his recent spat with Vincente Fox and his rejection of the FTAA.

Robertson has been caught on numerous occasions flashing El Diablo Satanic hand signals on his show (pictured above) and soft-peddling for the beast
system by telling Christians not to worry about Big Brother
surveillance and biometric scanning.

Robertson is pro Skull and Bones, Bohemian Grove Bush, pro war, and pro big government. He is a modern day Judas Iscariot.

Thanks for the article. I knew that he had said some dopey things (like advocating assassination) but I had no clue about him being okay with abortion or about him dismissing implantable microchips. Although I happen to agree with him somewhat on the Islamist thing... they ran a really interesting broadcast of a Chuck Colson speech on Focus on the Family the other day that really flabbergasted me... I've got to get around to writing about it.

I suppose the best advice for any Christian is to test the spirits to see if they are of God. If you are supporting something that is contrary to the Bible, you're wrong. While I know that some things are up for interpretation, or aren't addressed in the Bible (a church's carpet color=not addressed, head coverings=people have differing interpretations), issues like abortion, adultery, and homosexuality are fairly clear. This guy has pretty much lost his credibility. But some people still think that he's important, I suppose.
