We Love the Aroma of Cognitive Dissonance

We smell hypocrisy a-bloomin', and so does E.J. Dionne:
...if leaders of the antiabortion movement don't oppose [Rudy] Giuliani during the primaries with the same passion they summoned against [John] Kerry, it will become clear that abortion is more an excuse to vote Republican than the foundational issue they claim it to be.
Dionne points out that Catholic bishops called down the wrath of heaven on John Kerry for being pro-choice, and ordered good Catholics not to vote for him. Will they call down the same righteousness on Catholic Rudy Giuliani?

How will our good Baptist brethren rationalize their cooptation by the Republican Party, if Giuliani is the party's nominee?
