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.
    I prefer the word acceptance over tolerance.....less negative I think....

    Newt is very smart and has good ideas, but, he is a polarizing figure. The left demonizes him as much as the right is said to demonize Clinton.

    He displayed hypocrisy when he was conducting an extramarital affair at the same time he was attacking Clinton. But there is a huge difference. A couple actually. Newt didn't lie about it and he resigned. Clinton lied and didn't resign.

    And finally, he'll never really be able to escape that bit of dishonesty and it puts a tarnish on his credibility. He's done well since then, but it will never be forgotten.

    Over and out
    Resigned over what? The two wives he cheated on, or the ethics violations and the reprimand:

    I think what you should have said is 'he didn't lie about it anymore after he got caught.'

    Newt, Paul, Huckabee, Trump, et al, all these asinine clowns might just be red herrings.....the GOP gets them to say they want to run so that when they finally decide on someone who isn't a total clown, that person will seem, to the rest of us, like a good choice by comparison....

    I love being told by a fear monger who can't keep his dick in his pants during a marriage that I am 1. an Islamist (funny, I thought that didn't go hand in hand with Atheism) and 2. Destroying America.

    To those complaining about how Atheists are destroying Family values, as it turns out studies show Atheist males are more likely to be monogamous than Christian males. Funny how that works out.

    If that is there plan, they've done an excellent job.

    Actually, pretty stupid unless you are a conservative.

    Now that we have dispensed with the partisan hackery, do you actually have anything to add to the topic?

    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.
    Muslims are a very small minority of people in the country... Hispanics/Latin are the largest growing demographic, and they usually Catholic.

    Newt needs to STFU

    I can't believe he is seriously in the race, and thinks he is acting mainstream or speaking to the majority of Americans. He really thinks this behaviour is going to help him out? That's just scary.
