Forbes finds God

The man who once called Pat Robertson a "toothy flake," is now a regular at Christian Coalition conventions. And today, Steve Forbes' speeches are riddled with God-talk.

In 1996 Forbes said that a woman who is raped has "a right" to an abortion. Now he's against abortion, and says he would only nominate "pro-life" justices to the US Supreme Court. He also believes that God is central to the US Constitution.

Conservative activist Paul Weyrich believes Forbes is sincere. "I think he has genuine convictions." He added, "Only God knows for sure."
