Newt Gingrich: "Respect our religion", "Not every other religion!"
Posted by: Tanoro - Feb 1, 2012 9:22AM

Wow! Just when we thought American politics couldn't get any dumber. Presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, has been on the political platform in Florida to spout his religious intolerance and play the victim.

If you help me win the nomination and then you help me win the election, on the very first day I’m inaugurated, I will sign an executive order repealing every Obama attack on religion across the entire government.[1]

So what was this attack on Christianity? The Obama administration is making birth control more available for women. Really? Yea, really. That is the attack on Christianity: to help women not get pregnant if they so choose by giving them the freedom to pop a pill at their convenience. Naturally, a little Newt called "Gingrich" can't let people do what they want with their bodies. The sheer horror would be overwhelming!

A reply came over Facebook that I thought was excellent.

So ... wait. Let me get this straight. Make abortions illegal ... And then make birth control, which helps prevent people from getting said abortions in the first place, illegal as well? ...Oh. It all makes sense now.
