Newt Gingrich Thinks We're becoming Godless

Here's a little quote from one of the many non-Sarah's currently angeling for the GOP nomination for President.

Newt Gingrich "warned that America is headed toward becoming a godless society unless voters take a stand against President Obama and liberal-minded college professors and likeminded media pushing his agenda," the San Antonio News-Express reports.

He also "called for a return to historic, Christian roots he said were critical to protecting the nation's freedoms."

Said Gingrich: "There's a desperation with which our elites are trying to create amnesia so that we literally have generations who have no idea what it means to be an American."

Question: Do GOP people roll their eyes almost out of their heads read quotes such as this, or is it just me? I mean who, but someone entirely lacking intelligence or common sense, would believe anything Newt Gingrich has to say about values and morality? He's a twice-divorced thug, who cheated on one wife, and dumped her as she was dying of cancer. This is the moral standard bearer of the Republican party?

What I dislike about Newt Gingrich corresponds to what I dislike about a certain type of Orthodox Jew. I know many, if not most, Orthodox Jews are not like this, but I know some foul-mannered Orthodox Jews who think that because they go to Daf Yomi, and daven 3 times per day, they are great people, with a ticket-punched for Gan Eden. They tend to be extremely judgmental, selfish, self-centered, and racist. Again, most Orthodox Jews are not like this, but there are at least one or two of this kind in every shul. Newt Gingrich is cut from the same cloth. He is the same breed of loud-mouthed pious fraud.
