(NewsMax) -- GOP presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani is virtually “indistinguishable” from Hillary Clinton on core social issues, according to Tony Perkins, head of the influential conservative Family Research Council.
Speaking with NewsMax in a media conference call on Wednesday, Perkins said that the former New York City mayor simply cannot bring together the “three key elements” of the Republican Party — social conservatism, fiscal conservatism, and a strong national defense.
“I don’t envision the majority of social conservatives moving toward a pro-abortion candidate,” Perkins said. “This issue runs strong. Singing the ABC song — 'anybody but Clinton' — will not be enough.”
Perkins’ group is a co-sponsor of Washington Briefing 2007: Values Voter Summit, a gathering later this month of pro-family activists in the nation’s capital, at which at least eight of the Republican presidential candidates, including Giuliani, will appear.
“What I hear is people are frustrated because there is very little difference between the Republican and Democratic parties,” he said. “My experience is you don’t beat a liberal with a moderate. You have a lack of enthusiasm. People will not get excited by Giuliani.”...

No Good Catholic Can Support Rudy Giuliani
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: The following article pertains both to practicing Catholics and Evangelicals, but as far as Catholics are concerned, Rudy Giuliani is a fellow Catholic who makes a mockery of the faith. It is a mortal sin to support abortion in any way, and yet Giuliani (like John Kerry and Ted Kennedy) promotes the public HERESY that abortion is permissible in the political realm, even though it is immoral in the realm of religion and private life. We've all heard the sad old adage more than once; "I'm personally against abortion, but...." Sorry, this is a cop out, and if it comes from a Catholic, it's also heresy! Any Catholic who supports Rudy Giuliani is supporting heresy -- plain and simple.
