Newt Gingrich said that conservatives will have to accept marriage equality after three more states this year voted to allow same sex marriage and more will likely do the same in the 2014 election.
The former Speaker of the House said he didn’t expect gay rights to become the “wave” issue it has, but that he can accept the difference between a marriage in a church and a legal document, reported Huffington Post.

Real conservatives don’t and won’t accept it.
Fake conservatives like Newton do accept it.
He likes being invited to the DC parties — therefore he has to use the right words on certain issues — he likes being liked by people who would stab him in the back at the first opportunity.
It must be something in the water in DC, or maybe the air . . .
I don’t have to accept anything. I may have to live with it, but I don’t have to accept it.
There already IS “marriage equality.” Any gay man can marry the exact same set of people that any straight man can, and the same goes for lesbians and straight women.
What “marriage equality” really means is “using the power of government to redefine society’s most basic institution to fit our personal, private preference.”
Just another ‘bandwagon’ Conservative. He deems himself Conservative only when there is political benefit for him and the rest of his RINOs on the bandwagon.
We may not want to listen to a man on gay marriage who has been married three times.
Don’t blame me. I voted for Santorum.
In a cesspool the solids always rise to the top
Marriage equality exists today. It existed yesterday. And 100 years before that.
I’m not bothered about John Doe being straight, gay, confused, bisexual, asexual, or acrobatic. If he wishes to marry a female he can have at it and equality with every other marriage in recorded history will be instantaneous and automatic.
But John Doe’s desire to ‘marry’ Joe Sixpack is an impossibility because marriage already has a definition and John/Joe ain’t it.
I can call a giraffe a dog but that won’t make it bark.
Newt may be a fag, but he’s no authority on marriage.
Just bend over. Newt wants to be the first to service us.
We had a thread winner. The board is no longer taking further entries.
We can either be Christian or American, but not both?
Those of us who questioned the sincerity of Newt’s claimed embrace of the Catholic faith may now take a few moments to feel smug.
It must be a virus carried by the mosquitoes in the Potomac that causes conservatives to go over to the dark side once they get to DC.
And dumped his cancer-stricken wife to fornicate with a woman while he was STILL married.
How can gays, being 3% of the population, be in every family and every community?
Hey NEWT - don’t ever ever tell me what I have to accept. Your party can go to %&^%(a
Newt has a history. Affairs, divorces. Caving to clinton after his good early start in the House. And lack of moral principles.
I was a Santorum supporter. Santorum ran SECOND to Romney, Newt ran third. Rick might have beaten Romney if Romney hadn’t managed to demonize him so thoroughly, while Newt stayed in the race just long enough to ensure a Romney win—even though it was evident much earlier that he had no chance to win himself.
That was hard to predict. Sarah Palin and Jim Robinson evidently decided that Newt was the best bet to edge out Romney. At the moment they threw their support to Newt, that looked like it might be true—but it didn’t last long.
Rick was not a perfect candidate, but he was much better than any of the others who were in the running.
Newt, I don’t have to do a damn thing.
You accept it, you worthless republican.
The minute I saw Newt sitting pretty on that sofa with Nazi Pelousy in that stupid “climate change” ad, I knew he was a traitor.
The only thing I have to accept is RINO Newt’s lips on my butt (in a non-homo way of course since this is a homo thread). Not that there is anything wrong with that....
I personally don’t care what they do in their house but it will not be called “marriage”.
Newt has a Lesbian sister and he changed his mind about marriage the moment she came out of the closet years ago. Newt changes his ethics to suit himself.
Yep, we sure were. Staking horse for Mitt he was the whole time. Thanks Newt for 4 more years of Obama
Some Catholic he turned out to be. Who is his Bishop?
We do not have to accept their denila of reality
“It looks like the Newt critics here several months ago were right about him. In the end, he is a RINO and not much different than Mitt Romney.”
It appears his conversion to Catholicism/annulments was simply a political ploy, as pointed out by many.
Go ahead. Flame away.
NEVER! This is an epic fail on Newt Gingrich’s part. When he goes off the reservation, it can be a real doozy.
No big surprise that Newt Gingrich now lectures the GOP (and, presumably, conservatives) to ‘accept’ ‘gay marriage’. That recognizing the fact that states are allowing same-sex couples to be legally ‘married’ is one thing but ‘accepting’ it in any way other than as an immoral aberration of God-ordained marriage is something else. Newt is being ‘pragmatic’ and likely not intending to run for office as a Republican so he can now throw conservative values out the window. A RINO is as a RINO does.
Because they are in every movies, tv show and music albums so they seem to be every where.
Newt’s always been about Newt. First and foremost.
I will never accept the concept of two people of the same sex, “marring” each other and becoming one. Two people of the same sex will never constitute a couple. At the most, they will be a pair. Otherscan do as it pleases them, but I will never accept it.
Fig Newton is a charlatan who has drunk too much Potomac water. Marriage is one man and one woman. You can call the sky a different color. Yet we all know it’s blue. Same with marriage. ESAD Figgy RINO.
When my wife and I were first married, she continued her work as a costume maker for a few years. Of course costumes are used in the theater, and a huge percentage of the people in the theater are - gay.
The funniest thing to me was the homosexual “couples.” I never saw one that wasn't ‘husband’ and ‘wife.’ Whether male or female, there was always one that was clearly the ‘husband’ and one that was clearly the ‘wife.’
So when I hear these gay activists going on about how, “they are just like us” my thought is always, “yes you are, but you are totally confused.” Why a man would want another man to act and behave like a wife - when he could have an actual wife, is beyond comprehension. Ditto for a woman choosing to have another woman act like a man and take care of her, when she could have an actual man, is equally stupid.
If two gay guys both acted like husbands, or two gay women both acted like wives - maybe it could be called homosexual marriage. But right now all it can be called is confused and mixed-up as hell people play acting.
Sorry Newt, the abomination is not acceptable. Please ESAD as soon as possible.
If this is the civilized world and we are the barbarians, then let Rome burn.
browbeating the public with it and braiwashing kids in schools on it, is something we will NEVER EVER accept
Braver man than I. I voted Santorum in just the TX primary. I went with Virgil Goode in the general. Hopefully Santorum runs again in 2016.
Also overlooked is that Gingrich has drifted ever more leftward since he enjoyed the under-the-desk ministrations of the pious Catholic Calista, for whom Gingrich converted to Catholicism.
Santorum, who proudly proclaimed George Zimmerman a murderer, does demonstrate that one should not trust ANY politician.
It looks like the Newt critics here several months ago were right about him.
***Yup. Where are the newtsters now?
Newt is great on talking a good talk. And he's a good person to have in your corner if you agree on an issue.
But he is VERY weak as a political leader. 2 divorces in his past definitely reflects on his inability to stay a course...in this case homosexuality.
I've stayed away for many months because of the vile & false accusations against Santorum on a daily basis here.
Still....very disappointed Newt would say this........also Beck.....also, from what I hear Hannity and definitely O'Reilly.
They all can fold if they want....
I intend to stand.
The states can do what they want but “I” won’t accept it and I’m the only thing that counts anymore ...could care less what other people think.
I still believe Santorum’s arm was twisted to drop out with some well applied extortion by fake info. Even the GOP-e is capable of this.
