We Repost — You Decide

Newt Gingrich on The O’Reilly Factor:

And I think if you believe in historic Christianity, you have to confront the fact. And, frank— for that matter, if you believe in the historic version of Islam or the historic version of Judaism, you have to confront the reality that these secular extremists are determined to impose on you acceptance of a series of values that are antithetical, they’re the opposite, of what you’re taught in Sunday.
Brady Bonk, at Ketchup Is a Vegetable:

You see, Newt, it is actually the secular component of our society that GUARDS religious freedom. Without it, religious freedom is impossible. There is either a secular, neutral public square in the middle, or there’s a state-sponsored church-o-god, and you’d better get there every Sunday or the Jesus Police will come get you and throw you in the slam. It is the secular public square that allows our Jewish friends and our Muslim friends, and yes, our Christian friends, to enter their houses of worship and to talk to whatever imaginary friend in the sky they wish.

Message (optional):


The last we heard of "Newt + church" was when he was thrown out of a Georgia Baptist church for not supporting the wife he divorced and the children he abandoned, so maybe he hasn't read the Gospels for a while.

Jesus didn't say a word about gays, let alone a word about gays getting married. He also didn't say anything about abortion.

What he did denounce was divorce. Exegetes figure he had in mind the sort of divorce in which the husband-father summarily dumps the wife-mother and children. The sort of divorce Newt's committed twice now.

In Bible-speak, I'd call Newt a whited sepulchre.
