Rudy Giuliani, twice-divorced, a man who paraded around with his mistress and then brought her to Gracie Mansion while his wife was still living there, now paints himself as the Defender of Marriage
In a startling departure from his previously stated position on civil unions, Mayor Giuliani came out to The New York Sun yesterday evening in opposition to the civil union law just passed by the New Hampshire state Senate.
"Mayor Giuliani believes marriage is between one man and one woman. Domestic partnerships are the appropriate way to ensure that people are treated fairly," the Giuliani campaign said in a written response to a question from the Sun. "In this specific case the law states same sex civil unions are the equivalent of marriage and recognizes same sex unions from outside states. This goes too far and Mayor Giuliani does not support it."
I for one would like to see him clarify that he means "one man and one woman at a time." Or perhaps even openly invoke the IOKIYAR rule.
Is anyone actually going to buy this buffoon as a presidential candidate? Does he honestly believe that his own sleazy marriage history makes his union with the equally sleazy Judith Nathan somehow more sacred than that of ModFab
and Mr. ModFab, or that of my hairdresser and his partner, who have lived and worked together for over 30 years?
I'm sick and tired of this goddamn Republican sanctimony about morality. I am sick and tired of these people hiding behind Jesus, or the Pope, or whatever authority figure they worship and using it as a justification for their own moral turpitude while they judge others. It is high time the Democrats stopped this bullshit about "respecting faith" and forcing "people of faith" to recognize when they are being fed a line of crap. Note to Democrats: The Christofascist Zombie Brigade is NOT going to vote for you. Ever. So don't even bother to grovel before them the way you seem so tempted to. And as for the so-called "spiritual progressives", the liberal Christians who have allowed these people to speak for you? Well, it's time to start defending your faith. Because with your silence, you have allowed these scumbags to hijack your religion just as Islamist terrorists have hijacked the Muslim religion.
