Gingrich: "Gay Marriage is Paganism"

Gingrich: Gay Marriage a 'Perfect Example of What I Mean by the Rise of Paganism'

Quote
It's pretty simple: marriage is between a man and a woman. This is a historic doctrine driven deep into the Bible, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, and it's a perfect example of what I mean by the rise of paganism. The effort to create alternatives to marriage between a man and a woman are perfectly natural pagan behaviors, but they are a fundamental violation of our civilization.


Actually, I think it's safe to say that most of the people supporting same-sex marriage and/or getting married to people of the same sex belong to Christian denominations. But hey, go, pagans!
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Yes, because the proper CHRISTIAN way to deal with marriage is one man to one woman, then ditching her when she's sick to get a new one, rinse, repeat.

The beauty of his statement is that Gingrich has now linked gay marriage with a group of religions...therefore, by his own constant demands for the defense of religious freedom, same-sex marriages must be permitted nationwide. Otherwise we're trampling on the religious freedom of pagans.

I'm astonished that so many Christian fundamentalists have aligned behind Gingrich's candidacy. On his personal track record alone, you couldn't find a worse standard bearer of "family values" if you tried.

Given how unlikely it seems that the Frothy Mixture would get nominated, their choice for a "family values" candidate is limited.  And given how some corners of fundie Christianity think of the LDS Church, Romney probably wouldn't be favored by that crowd.

He said that the Bible stresses that marriage should be between a man and a woman.  I wonder where in ancient Non-JCI literature he found something that allowed same-sex-marriage.

Actually, he's a mite off on his bible there.  The bible allows a man more than one wife.  Or it allows him a wife and concubines.  He's not fighting the right battle.

So he should be fighting for the legalization of polygamy instead?

Last time I checked most of the gay  people I know are NOT Pagan! Someone  needs to  check his facts before he  opens his   mouth!

That's what I think, anyhow, by what he's saying.  one man, many wives.  The insurance companies will love him.

There is a bowl of cards, with on each card something Right Wing is against. Every week they draw two, and link them together in their next public appearance, however unlikely.

According to Newt, I guess that's right.  According to one of Newt's ex-wives, he wasn't really that in favor of just one woman, however.
