Presidential hopeful, Rudy Giuliani, has gained an ally in his campaign for the hearts of bible thumping Americans, winning the backing of the leading gay-basher of the Christian right, Pat Robertson. So who has the favourite for the Republican nomination got backing him in his corner and do they share the same values on:
Robertson described feminism as a "socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
Robertson said that the 2001 terrorist attacks were caused by "pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians and the ACLU."
Robertson stated that the acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings and "possibly a meteor."
Robertson said of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez: “I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war, and I don’t think any oil shipments will stop."
Robertson stated that Muslims want global domination and that the outpouring of rage elicited by cartoon drawings of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad "just shows the kind of people we're dealing with. These people are crazed fanatics, and I want to say it now: I believe it's motivated by demonic power. It is Satanic and it's time we recognize what we're dealing with."
Robertson called the religion of Hinduism "demonic" and said that Hindus should be barred from entering the United States.
Robertson said left-wing professors in the United States were "racists, murderers, sexual deviants and supporters of Al-Qaeda."
He accused the National Association of Evangelicals of teaming up with "far left environmentalists" in stating that global warming was caused by humans and needed to be mitigated.
Well done Rudy, you got a real diamond there acting as cheerleader. Can't see how you can fail with Pat watching your back.
