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.

Flame away? Why? Because you don’t get it yet? Because you are blind towards Santorum - the guy who takes one for the team. the GOP? He gave into them LOOOOOOOOOONG ago! It’s knowledge you cannot or unable to accept. Newt was odd man out when Santorum was playing footsies with evil!

It makes me sick how cowardly these so called conservatives are.

The liberal communist bums, much as I loathe.....after multiple election defeats and humiliation will STILL proudly beat the same drum......the same social and economic policies...they don’t ‘compromise’. In fact, they seem to get more extreme.

What is it with people like Newt et al that think caving in on issue after issue will advance the conservative cause?

The only logical answer is that they are not interested in principle, only power, fame and that disgusting Washington gravy train. They need routing out and throwing to the curb. If you don’t you may as well end up like us in the UK where our conservative leader supports abortion, gay marriage, liberal social programmes etc.

Complete sell outs that have doomed us. I’m so damn sick and tired of them.

You are right.

But calling something “homo-marriage” to distinguish it from “marriage” makes it “different”, i.e. keeps a distinction in the minds of many in population that it isn’t really marriage at all, and therefore won’t accept it, or will tolerate it at best. This is contrary to what the leftist power structure is trying to achieve - use the imprimatur and force of law to destroy the traditional Judeo-Christian morality and its institutions, and redefine society.

Good grief Newt! Just when I think you may have found your way you open your mouth and prove to me that I was right about you all along!

GO AWAY NEWT! WE DON'T NEED YOU!

You didn’t really expect Newt to side with God, did you?

ACK!

Glad he didn’t get the nomination.

And he’s a CATHOLIC!

Double ACK.

I’ll happily see the country burn to the ground before having this gay-marriage farce being federally forced onto my state by these degenerate sickos.

As for Newt, I’ve given him a fair share of passes over the years, because he’s usually spot-on, despite deviating into weird-and-wacky territory about 20% of the time. But by taking this stance, Newt can just go straight to Hell. I really don’t give a damn about anything he has to say ever again, from here on out.

Newt has always been fortunate in having large numbers of people on the right who are willing to forget every asinine and counterproductive thing he's ever done before in order to cheer him on when he acts/sounds like a conservative. The man was instrumental during a brief moment of conservatism which he also helped to bring to a screeching halt, and he has since been granted a license by people like Sean Hannity to indulge his ego and generally provide a false alternative for people disgusted by whatever current crop of Republican mediocrities are being paraded out at any given time. If more of the GOP would show spine, fewer people would suddenly embrace Newt (yet again), and he'd be left to pick up whatever crumbs that the MSM throw his way... and little more.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again (and again, and again): Newt Gingrich is all about Newt Gingrich.

This is treating people’s beliefs like they are a political position. Sorry Newt you are wrong!

Which has been my main complaint about Newt all along! This is him to a tee. The man has no pronciples. No core beliefs. He will go along with anything that he thinks will keep him in the game.

To all the Newt 2012 supporters...Hate to say I told you so but...I TOLD YOU SO!

"The momentum is clearly now in the direction in finding some way to... accommodate and deal with reality,” he said. “And the reality is going to be that in a number of American states — and it will be more after 2014 — gay relationships will be legal, period.”

Newt likes to jump on that old bandwagon, without thinking it through. Natural law prevails. Popular culture is transient.

Newt and others conveniently fail to talk about facts such as persons with SSA are significantly more likely to have psychological disorders, substance abuse problems, suicidal ideation, and to have been victims of childhood sexual abuse and violence. The relationships of men with Same Sex Attraction (SSA) are more likely to be short-lived and are almost never faithful over time. The HIV/AIDS epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) continues unabated and has been linked to substance abuse and sexual addiction. Men who have sex with men are also 44 times more likely to be HIV positive, and far more likely to be inflected with other sexually transmitted diseases.

There is a very seedy side of same sex attraction that is not discussed. Nor does Newt (and others) talk about statistics dealing with those who switch from SSA to normal heterosexual relationships.

Kiss off, Newt. I don’t have to accept a damned thing-—and I won’t.

“Marriage equality”-——BS

” ... gay relationships will be legal.”

The already are legal.

Redefining marriage — that is not yet legal in all states. Indeed, it is folly.

I'm not gay, but even I know that grey suede loafers don't go with a dark blue suit!

And is this happening in the White House? WTF?

The line in the sand is forcing churches to participate in this sham. The gay lobby denies that is part of their agenda but I don’t believe them. Religious persecution comes next.

Have the feds issue the sodomites a marriage of equals license. Word it a little differently but give them the rights they so desperately crave.
