Fundie Endorsment Day!

So, who did your favorite fundie endorse today?

My fellow Kansan Sam Brownback decided that John McCain was the best choice while fundie Christian Pat Robertson decided to go ahead and endorse the sometimes crossdressing, thrice divorced, pro-choice, pro-gay rights presidential candidate (and fascist) Rudy Giuliani. Kind of an odd choice, no? So, what would lead Robertson to overlook all that other stuff?

"To me, the overriding issue before the American people is the defense of our population from the bloodlust of Islamic terrorists," Robertson said.

Oh, right. That. Giuliani's clearly the most likely to start another ill-fated Crusade in the Middle East but there's still something that confuses me. Robertson said "I concur totally" when Jerry Falwell said this about 9/11:
The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way--all of them who have tried to secularize America--I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen."

He also said something about how we lost the protection of heaven for allowing abortion and "rampant internet pornography" although I'm not sure where the protection was before we had the internet and still had all those wars but whatever.

So...given all of that wouldn't our best protection against the "bloodlust of Islamic terrorists" have nothing to do with actual foreign policy and more to do with abortion and the gays? Ugh, this conservative logic makes my head hurt sometime but who am I to argue with a man that says he can leg press 2000 pounds?
