"I have two grandchildren...." Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church. "I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American."
Huh?? Wouldn't a secular atheist country be dominated by secular atheists? I can't quite understand how a secular atheist country can be dominated by a radical religious sect. Sounds like Newt was just stringing together talking points that he hoped would stir up as much fear as possible. Newt also seems to be quite good at 1984-speak, intimating that his divorces and extramarital affairs are signs of being a very moral person. The story continued:
But Gingrich was mum on his own controversial past, one of marital indiscretions and divorces that have made courting religious conservatives a tall task as he nears a likely presidential run. Over the last year, through religious news outlets, Gingrich has sought to explain and seek forgives for those infidelities. Standing on the dais of Cornerstone Church, a prominent evangelical congregation led by the pastor John Hagee, Gingrich avoided the subject. Just hours earlier, Gingrich had insisted on Fox News that leading the impeachment charge against Bill Clinton while in an affair himself did not amount to hypocrisy.
Newt also does not seem to understand the definition of hypocrisy. He also stressed that it was his love of his country, his patriotism that drove him to work so hard that he was simply drawn into his affairs.
