Rudy Gives Exactly The Right Answer
Rudy Giuliani may be trying to woo religious conservatives, but the former mayor all but took an oath of silence yesterday when asked if he was a practicing Catholic.
“My religious affiliation … and the degree to which I am a good or not so good Catholic, I prefer to leave to the priests,” the Republican presidential hopeful told a voter at a forum in Bettendorf, Iowa.
Another questioner mentioned President Bush’s success among Catholics and urged Giuliani to explain his faith. Again, Giuliani took a pass.
“That’s a matter of individual conscience,” Giuliani said. “I don’t think there should be a religious test for public office.”
