Newt Gingrich Wants To Convert You To Christianity

For your reading displeasure, here is the text of the commencement speech that former Speaker of the House and undecided Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich gave several days ago to the graduating class of 07' at the late Jerry Falwell's Liberty University.

While I would certainly agree that not every expression of religious belief should result in a knee-jerk reaction, such as a public school student or teacher sporting a crucifix necklace, why is it that Newt Gingrich does not seem to have a problem with the late Falwell making public pronouncements such as AIDS being God's just punishment against homosexuals. Not only are such statements insulting to gays, but they also promote a climate of intolerance towards gays. If Newt is fine with that, then maybe his two divorces should be rubbed in his face in every public appearance he makes.

Blahblahblah. Did he even write that himself? And "religious believers deserve a chance to be heard" and "the courts are biased against religious believers." Um, can I ask what country he's living in? Those poor religious believers, they're so meek and humble, no one knows what they want. Quiet as a churchmouse, they are.

Why did I read this first thing in the morning?
