Newt Gingrich: Americans "Are Surrounded By Pagan

2 posts in this topic

article

At an event in Virginia titled "Rediscovering God in America," Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee aimed to recapture lost political momentum for the Christian right with strong exhortations for members to involve themselves in politics in order to maintain and increase the presence of religion in the public square, the Virginia-Pilot reports.

Both men railed against abortion rights, gay rights and the lack of religious influence in American public life, however Gingrich upped the ante in his attempt to stir up the crowd with this line:

I think this is one of the most critical moments in American history. We are living in a period where we are surrounded by paganism.

However, Huckabee was not to be outdone in the use of hyperbole. The former Republican presidential candidate called the United States a "blessed" nation whose victory against the British in the Revolutionary War was "a miracle from God's hand," indeed the same type of miracle that defeated the legalization of gay marriage in California.

Another speaker at the event was Oliver North. (H/t Think Progress)

A lot of good comments on the article, hits like

So the man who served his wife divorce papers she was recovering from cancer surgery is lecturing us on morality?
and
the idea that somebody can say something as ridiculous as this and be considered a contender for the presidential nomination of a major political party does not communicate happy thoughts about this country.

AIG wasn't pillaged by Vikings.

There are not enough Visigoths in Canada to support a serious threat of invasion by horde

We have yet to see Obama nominate a Druid for anything ..

GM did not lose a quiddich match ...

Teenagers on brooms and/or human sacrifice in holy groves are yet to be seen as significant public nuisances in most communities in this country

:robot: On the bright side they didn't target Atheists... But just goes to show how Theists rant against other imaginary beings.
