There is no excuse for baseless smears on a group because of their non-belief in religion.

    Unfortunately he is right to an extent, but the extent that he took it to with the Islam was a bit to radical. The athiest movement has grown substantially in the past few years, but to address it at one certain group is a bit extreme, but I still enjoy Newt.

    You do know that most liberals are Christian, don't you?

    As long as you're listening to your fear mongering talking heads the athiest movement is doing whatever they tell you it's doing

    Aren't atheism and radical Islam mutually exclusive?

    I live in Keith Ellison's district, and one of our local Conservative radio hosts declared that Ellison was "using the gay agenda to promote Sharia Law." Huh? I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure sharia law isn't exactly friendly to homosexuals.

    Newt's just trying to burnish his "Tea Party cred" by throwing as many boogiemen into one sentence as he can. I'm waiting for Bachmann to one up him with "Those atheist radical Islamists are going to come to America and force you to enroll in Obama-care. Then after you go before your death panel, they're going to take that Death Tax back to China."

    Those radical atheist Islamists are coming to get us!!!

    Ok, so he probably just left out the word "or" like his spokesman says. Still. The main message is: BE AFRAID! EVERYONE IS OUT TO GET YOU!

    Why do people throw around the word secular like it's a bad thing? How the hell does someone simultaneously warn about atheists taking over and then turn around and say that we can't let that OTHER religion take over. So, what, Christianity is the official religion of the US now? Christian values get to dominate our laws? The founding fathers wanted separation of church and state to avoid ANY religion controlling the laws of the nation.

    Edit: Note to self: do not type things before coffee.
    I wonder how Newt feels about the joos?

    With large scale immigration I can understand beating the war-drums against Islamism in Europe. I think that it's insipid fear mongering that has more to do with the 19th century Anti-Masonic hysteria than 1930's warnings about Nazi Germany, but at least we are seeing a lot of Muslim immigration into Europe. One in every 25 Britons is a Muslim; in America it's 1 in 200.

    I'm going to be blunt so please forgive me. That's crap! First, you assume that no liberals are Christians which is not true. Second, I'm not sure "tolerance" means what you think it does. Tolerance means letting people live their lives the way they want. As long as they aren't hurting anyone, that is a good policy. There is a vocal minority of Christians who just don't get that concept. It is difficult to be tolerant of someone who is trying to make you live by their beliefs. You know, I don't think it's about tolerance so much as good manners. Some people just need to mind their own business.
