Giuliani supports the gay marriage amendment???

Speaking of pandering, is Giuliani planning to throw his principles under the bus and support the gay marriage amendment?

Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, told The Hill Saturday that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) would support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

Perkins said Giuliani told him in a private meeting that if the Defense of Marriage Act appeared to be failing or if multiple states began to legalize same-sex marriages, then he would support the constitutional amendment.

Giuliani did not mention the amendment or the issue of gay marriage during his address to the Values Voters Summit, but that position could win him favor with some social conservatives who view the former mayor warily.

I don't believe him and quite frankly I'm getting sick and tired of the politicians using God to get my vote. I'm not interested in electing a pastor. I want a president who isn't afraid to lead even when it's unpopular.
