"luv Sarah Palin", you really should have read what followed that first paragraph, would have saved you from some embarrassment:

" Gingrich speaks with a straight face about the sanctity of “one man, one woman” marriage... His defenders from the religious right ... claim that Jesus offers forgiveness and redemption to repentant sinners. Presumably, in their minds, anyone in a committed same-sex relationship counts as unrepentant....

Yes, the Bible speaks of forgiveness and redemption. But if marriage really is “until death do us part,” then Gingrich is still committing adultery with Callista. But don’t take my word for it, take Jesus’:

“Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”(Mark 10: 11–12)

This double standard is worth pointing out, frequently, publicly and forcefully. "

No. It's not moral. He made a promise to his first wife. He made a promise to his second wife. He made a "sacred" promise to his deity. "TILL DEATH". His wives didn't die. They got sick and he left them for someone healthy. So much for "in sickness and in health" Where's the morality? You sickos will stick up for each other no matter what.

Were you a witness to this transaction of buying souls? I'll take it that would be "no". You're doing what fundietards always do....... making shit up. Go pray for the strength to stop telling lies. Minister of truth, huh? LOL

Set the article aside and simply review this claim. People need to stop acting as if there is even any room for discussion.

In what I say next, I am not discussing this or engaging this person or anyone else. I am telling you what is logical and what requires *no* further discussion.

If ever you needed any evidence that the "christian" or "moral" paradigm attacks one subgroup of human beings senselessly, this is it. According to this paradigm (as evidenced here, by this person), a heterosexual can do PRACTICALLY NO WRONG in their sexual dealings because the entire paradigm is set up to allow all of their behavior.

By contrast, a gay person can NEVER do anything RIGHT either because a. the moment they exist, they have sinned, b. the moment they ever engage in a physical act with someone else, they have sinned.

Yet posters like this one evidence a clear irritation that their word is not being taken for "law" or "moral guidance."

With a paradigm like this, EVERYONE from the pope onward has lost any authority whatsoever to instill any "moral guidance." Unfortunately for people like this poster, millions are ready every single day to remind the entire world of that, and provide cogent, sensible, logical examples thereof.

Newt Gingrich is NOT sinning, but a gay person is?

Lemme spell it out for ya:

Bull-fuck-ing-shit.

Trust me, find love no matter what these goddamn antigay rapists say, or you will be the only one to suffer. Do not follow the example of their sin and evil; look what it has done to them. They couldn't be further from god if they shit all over the bible and spit in god's face. They are particularly a danger to vulnerable children and teens who have fewer defenses and don't realize what ungodly rape is being perpetrated in the name of "goodness."

Thanks for reading.

Not Biblically, of course. According to Jesus himself, he is not married to the woman he is currently fornicating with, and wallowing in sin every day he breaths.

And the man is courting evangelicals, so that's an issue. Or should be.

It's odd, isn't it, that such religious voters are willing to overlook his rapid and unrepentant sinfulness?

As I have stated many times Gingrich represents the typical hetero christian. They ignore what ever they wish to ignore in their all so precious bible. Much in the same way they ignore the fact that our constitution gives their religion zero authority. Our first right is that we are free from religious law, you know the first sentence of the first amendment that christian's ignore.

Just because Newt has "repented" has no bearing on his continued hypocrisy. He no more "moral authority" to speak on the "sanctity of marriage" than a supposedly repentant serial killer does.

That's the problem with religion; they think just because they ask for their god's forgiveness means their past actions have no relevance. That's why all the mobsters were religious- kill someone, ask forgiveness- kill someone else, ask forgiveness again- kill another one, ask forgiveness- etc, etc,.

I'm sure Newt will just "repent" again after his current affairs are exposed.

If you can find joy in the whoring bunch of Palins, why can't you find joy in Newt who was caught getting ORAL sex in the front seat of his car while his poor wife lay in agony, fighting cancer? Nice morals you have there, dear.

Obviously Sarah was NOT a good enough Christian, for TWO of her BROOD were wildly F*CKING without benefit of clergy. At least Track made HIS little bastard legal. Bristol is still sporting her little BASTARD around as if she is PROUD of her sin. The fact that you support a sinning whore like that proves you are no better. Now your love for PUBLIC sinner Newt and his C*CK sucking ice princess shows your true depravity and lack of Godliness. I pray for your soul,but I think it is far too late for it. Enjoy hell.

It's a good escape clause someone was crafty enough to put into the Bible and religion in theory and practice. They knew that NO one could keep up to their impossible standards. So, they dreamed up the Prodigal son story. THAT story made me see red, for it is SO unfair. the wild brother got to run and play and probably f*ck to his heart's content. When he showed up again, all repented, the dad preferred him to the good son. That truly sucks.

So, most Christians I know LOVE a reformed sinner. In fact, they like them more than someone who is dumb enough to have lived a good life anyway.

So, having a grand old time, screwing, stealing, drugging, killing, whatever? Just sign the "get out of jail free" card and welcome to heaven! What is up with THAT?

According to that scenario, if Adolph and Eva repented 1 minute before they pulled the trigger on each other, they would be skipping gaily though heaven today, but I would burn? Thanks, but since Susan Atkins repented in jail, after shoving a knife into pregnant Sharon Tate, SHE would be allowed to skip gaily though heaven, but if Sharon had not repented in time, she would burn in hell? What the HECK kind of system is THAT?

Even they know it makes no sense, but it's their get out of jail free card, and from what I've seen of "christians", they use it multiple times a day.

My only response to the "what if you're wrong" question is that I would never want to spend an eternity with a creature who would let a "repentant" Charles Manson into heaven, while denying it gays or athiests just because we don't believe that part.

Newt made some mistakes but now he has changed. He will beat Obama and send you dems packing.

Newt has repented and found God.
When I say he has repented I mean in action not just words.

If your gay but continue your lifestyle than you have neither repented nor found God.

Yeah, of course Dr. A-BLOW would approve of Newt. I'm sure HE likes oral sex with whores also. Sorry, possible first ladies. I am confused. You hate non married sex, we GET it, but you approve of Newt and the the ice princess who could not keep her mouth OFF the little /'Newt'? Some VALUES you got there, honey.

I could possibly support support him, I LIKE a candidate with a past, but the idea of Ice Princess being first lady is so repugnant. Every time I see her, all I can think of is her mouth open like a baby bird, waiting for a worm.

"if YOU'RE" not "if YOUR". HOW many times do I have to TELL you this? It is NOT rocket science. Maybe less biblin', and more learning basic ENGLISH. I'm tryin' to make you look less IGNORANT. I don't even expect thanks. The joy of bein' able to teach you somethin' is all I need.

The only schooling that is going to take place here is when Obama and his anti-Christian , anti-family values bunch are voted out of office.

"In 2009, Dalia Mogahed, an Obama administration adviser on Muslim affairs, told a British television audience that the West misunderstands Shariah law, calling its perceptions of Islamic tenants “oversimplified.”

But deaths, abuse and threats involving Muslim women in the United States and Canada have put a Western face on facets of Shariah that had been cloaked in long-standing Middle East practices"

Your wrong AGAIN and in Newts case he felt abandoned.
Either way what you leftist guerillas think matters not to Christians and Newt is the best candidate.

"Although the Bible says God hates divorce, it does not mean that God hates you, if you are divorced."

" Divorce is permissible in cases of abandonment.
This is spelled out by Paul in I Corinthians 7:15 where he says that if one spouse leaves another, the abandoned person is no longer bound to the marriage. "
