New OneNewsNow column is up

And it has precious little to do with evangelism, a lot to do with politics.

We are now expected to get excited about Giuliani?

I have posted at a couple of conservative sites reminding everyone of the seemingly forgotten affair, where Giuliani had both his wife and mistress living in the official residence. 9-11 seems to have erased all of that. It appears that you and I, at least are concerned about his apalling lack of character.

If you're going to talk about Rudy's lack of character and morals, you also have to talk about Hilary's lack of same.

For as long as I can remember deeply religious Christians in "The Bible Belt" have voted party and not for men and women that held true to the Scriptures as stated in the Bible. I can recall most Americans believed FDR could do no wrong. Their blinded support of others followed. At one time Americans fought to defend G D and Country. Today few even want to fight to defend the country. G D is left outof the picture. G D BLESS AMERICA!!!!

Wow, After Slick willy do affairs really matter. I would vote for Rudy although i disagree on some of his issues. He is a me to the same as Hillary on the abortion and gay issues but he did tell the Saudi's where to go on 911. Hillary would NOT do that! She would be the Lewinski.

I am a Youth pastor in North Carolina , and agree with you. I don't see how Giuliani is a Republican in the first place. On the same note, I shudder to think what damage another Clinton or an Obama would do to our ever dwindling recognition of God as a nation. I understand everyone has made mistakes and had made bad moral judgements, however I don't ever remember Rudy saying he was remorseful. Should the Republican race come down to a persons personal sins? If it does, who is left to run? Is there a candidate out there that does have morals and a conscience and a true relationship with God? Where is John Ashcroft when you need him?

I read your comments about Giuliani and recognized immediately where I'd seen your thinking in action before. It was the mid-term elections of '06.

If you disagree with a candidate, you take them out in the primary and support the primary winner in November. Otherwise, you elect the other party.

You can gloss over it anyway you want, and I do understand the frustration, but I don't see how you can believe that the media fawning over Hillary and her Marxist policies for 4 (8?) years is better than Guiliani not being your perfect candidate.

Sorry, I thought that the comment about posting on conservative websites would be an implicit statement of my contempt and disgust for Hillary. Harry Truman said he would never hire a man who cheated on his wife, because if he could lie to her, he could lie to him.

You know better. Stay home, and you guarantee a Hillary win. And that almost certainly means 8 years, and judicial nominations that will make your stomach turn. The party will survive a Giuliani nomination. The nation will not survive a Hillary presidency.

I must disagree with this column, Prof. Friedman. I really think you ought to hear what Mayor Giuliani has said about his presidential stand and campaign, before writing him off...especially in light of the idea that Senator Hillary Clinton may get the DEM nomination. In your column, you mention that Mayor Giuliani has past personal problems. I assume you are referring to his divorce? Did not President Reagan divorce from Jayne Wyman prior to becoming an elected official? As such, how can you characterise Mayor Giuliani as having personal problems that outweigh his presidential bid, yet maintain that you voted for President Reagan twice? Further, did you vote for President G.H.W. Bush both times he ran for President? If so, are did you write off his lie to the American Public, when he said "Read my lips: No New Taxes!", then turned around and raised taxes?

My appeal to you is merely to think about your stand on Mayor Giuliani. Take time and listen to his interview with Sean Hannity, of "Hannity and Colmes" on FOX News, concerning his bid to become president. Do this especially in light of your comments about the possibility of Hillary Clinton being the DEM Nominee.

Mr. Friedeman, Amen and Amen! You are exactly correct in your article denouncing Mr. Giuliani. He is profoundly pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality, and anti-gun. As a Christian, I can not allow myself to vote for a man that holds the sanctity of human life in such low regards. There must come a time in our nation's history that committed born-again believers must stand up and forcefully say, "I will not vote for a candidate that denegrates the sanctity of human life!" I am not a Republican, I am a conservative. The Republican party does not control me, God Almighty controls me. I cannot and will not vote for any man that thinks so little of human life and decency. May God forgive our nation and its members for their ungodly choices.
