Pat Robertson: value voters summit represents “a narrow slice of Evangelical thought”
“More dissension among social conservatives?”—asks Tommy Oliver in a race42008.com post titled Pat Robertson: “I’m not sure that group in Washington is representative of evangelicals across the spectrum”
I am shocked by some comments coming from none other than Pat Robertson. Here’s what he had to say in a report filed by David Brody for the 700 Club:
“David, I’m not really sure that group in Washington is really representative of evangelicals across the spectrum. This is the Family Research Council, and some of those James Dobson supporters, and I just think that’s a narrow slice of evangelical thought…
“This talk is just totally quixotic. This 3rd party, certainly not now, when all they’ll accomplish is making sure this person they dislike gets elected”
… “More dissension among the Arlington Group?”—concludes Oliver. “In the interview, Robertson seemed very skeptical of the whole event, and very open to Giuliani.”
Conclusion: Are Evangelicals rallying to the Romney banner?—hardly. Why is it that everything Romney touches, or everything that touches Romney,—e.g. straw polls, voters’ summits, key endorsers—gets instantly discredited?
