"Illogical? "Pathetic,” “confusing” and “hypocritical”
Giuliani, religion, and politics.
How about normal. Sometimes, oftentimes, life is complicated. To repeat, holding differing, even opposing viewpoints, is how we (at least the mentally healthy ones) get through the day. In fact, I don't see the big deal in saying "I'm personally against X and while I'd persuade others from participating in X I don't see where this is government's business." I'd find that attitude admirable in a politician.
If you graph your views and opinions on an X/Y plot and it's a straight line instead of some sort of scatter plot, you are lying or deranged; either way, untrustworthy...or maybe just too simpleminded to talk to. If Giuliani were running for Pope his views might be illogical and hypocritical. Since he isn't and he lives in a country where we allow (however decreasingly) people to make their own choices, there is no contradiction.
All of which I find kinda funny concerning Giuliani because one of my misgivings about him is what I see as an autocratic reflex to wield an intrusive government.
