Rudy Giuliani, Bible Expert

Rudy Giuliani is still trying to unload the baggage of his personal life, this time by appealing to Holy Scripture and the words of Christ himself.

Giuliani has a daughter who indicated support for Democrat Barack Obama and a son who said he didn't speak to his father for some time. Giuliani's messy divorce from their mother, Donna Hanover, was waged publicly while Giuliani was mayor of New York.

"I'm guided very, very often about, `Don't judge others, lest you be judged,'" Giuliani told CBN interviewer David Brody. "I'm guided a lot by the story of the woman that was going to be stoned, and Jesus put the stones down and said, 'He that hasn't sinned, cast the first stone,' and everybody disappeared.

"It seems like nowadays in America, we have people that think they could've passed that test," he said. "And I don't think anybody could've passed that test but Jesus." SOURCE


Rudy needs to study his Bible a little more. The story he references about casting stones can be found at John 8:2-11, and he conveniently left out the conclusion.

Jesus did indeed chide the Pharisees for being hypocrites, mainly because they presented him with the woman while not bringing the man with whom she committed adultery. After they went away without stoning the woman, what did He tell her? It's in verse 11: "Go now and leave your life of sin." Some translations say "Go and sin no more." No translation that I have seen says anything like "Go and continue your sin, and tell anyone who asks that it is a purely personal matter."

Rudy, on the other hand, says the message of Christ is that everyone should just shut up and elect him president despite his own sordid history, not to mention his support for wars of aggression, torture of prisoners, freedom of abortion, gay marriage, and assorted other abominations.

Sadly, I'm afraid plenty of Christians are being taken in by this charlatan. I predict they will live to regret it.

Now Christian and pro-life leaders are taking a stand and refusing to be taken in by him any longer. I talked to a friend of mine at Missouri Right to Life who said that, basically the Christian Right is getting more than a little fed up with being taken advantage of, or taken for granted, by the Republican Party and Republicans have another thing coming if they think that we will just sit idly by while they throw us under the bus.

Hilarious. Great point.
