    The sanctity of marriage and Newt!

    Newt is against Gay marriage and has been very vocal about this throughout his campagin, he was also a big suppoerter of prop 8. My questions to you is should someone that is on his 3rd marriage and has committed adultery be allowed to lecture the general public on how marriage is a " Sacred tradition" and prevent other Americans from being married. When it comes to this paticular issue is the man being very hypocritical and should maybe keep his mouth shut and stop judging people on their life choices? ( we all know how he hates the media judging his) or is he right to still defend marriage from the gay community and keep it "sacred"

    Your's isn't a poll. It's just you starting a thread on a topic already with at least half a dozen.

    Yes. The man has no moral authority from which to speak on the subject.

    Don't even get me started on this. It says a lot about social conservatives that they would nominate an adulterer to be the leader of the free world while condemning gays. I guess that serial monogamy is the new traditional definition of marriage. That sure would make Jesus proud, particularly since the very verse they use to argue that Jesus defined marriage as an institution only for men and women was Jesus condemning divorce. And now apparently he sought an "open marriage" at some point. Good grief. They idiocy and hypocrisy is revolting.

    Should he be allowed to do so? Yes.

    Should he do so? No.

    Should his opinion be respected in this manner? Hell no.

    Of course he should be allowed to. That's that whole freedom of speech thing at work.

    He's an enormous hypocrite for doing so of course, but that doesn't mean he shouldn't be allowed to do it.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    when I say allowed I really mean should he be able to continue bashing gay marriage and not be called out by either the media or his political foes! Would be interested to see if Obama would bring the point up in a debate vs Newt.

    the question doesn't ask should he be allowed to, it asks should he stay off the topic of marriage.

    In real terms I do think that serial monogamy is the new social norm. The low percentage of people that have good lifelong marriages, as opposed to enduring lifelong marriage, is possibly so low that it might even be a good norm. Regardless, I think it is the new social norm - and that is excluding the HUGE number of serial monogamy co-habitations never obtaining marriage licenses.ve

    Since YOU linked "social conservative" to "Jesus condemning marriage," to be legit you need to attach your link to Gingrich ever quoting Jesus on marriage in relation to gays, since that is your assertion of his hypocrisy.
