Noot shows off his progressive roots. Next, he’ll be telling us that he’s Wilsonian, or how FDR was his favorite President. Oh wait . . .

Newt is worse than Romney. Romney has never come out in favor of gay marriage. I don’t know why anyone wasted time promoting Newt. He talks a good game but when push comes to shove, he is the first to cave. Even John Boehner shows more courage and that ain’t saying much.

Just think Gingrich was a favorite GOP candidate for President. I’m beginning to like a 3rd party even more.

Sorry, Newt, I don't have to 'accept' anything.

If the government sanctions this perversion, I'll simply add it to the growing list of immoralities OK by the corrupt leaders in this country that I refuse to accept.

I intend to stand.

I'll be standing with you. Only, we'll likely have to do more than stand when we're carted off to jail for not bowing to the Sodomite idol. It's going to have to get bloody. And no, I won't shy away from that imagery.

Gingrich: Conservatives Will Have to Accept Marriage 'Equality'

Are the quotation marks in the right place, or should that be: Gingrich: Conservatives Will Have to Accept 'Marriage' Equality? It's not marriage. It never has been in any culture that survived long enough to be remembered, and it never will be.

Don't put him in romney' class who years ago personally married the perverts. KEEP it HONEST!.

Gingrich said the GOP will need to accept that same sex marriage “is in every family, it is in every community,” and that Americans in increasing numbers find no issue with allowing it — as proven by voters on election day.

It could never have been proven on election day - not matter who won. Romney, personally, married the perverts! So The GOP fails and you fail by saying that. LIARS!

It IS NOT in the family of God. The ONLY family that has The Truth and The Eternal Life. It was in ALL the families in Sodom and Gomorrah and God destroy them though. So much for your history knowledge!

"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.”

And then they will see GOD's reality - and I won't set dates but it's been a long time brewing and in HIS TIME the GOP and all the perverts will see how He deals with what HE says is an 'abomination' to HIM. And HIS family won't be here because they are not subject to HIS WRATH. God has the FINAL say. God protects His Family!

he said the concern is that the Republican Party will get trapped behind the times.

Be more concerned on who YOU and the GOP follow. God always was and always will be - HE doesn't have 'time'. You are going to be trapped behind satan who does have 'time' and there will be no way to escape.

I'll say my good-bye's now to The GOP who gave us a candidate who was hell bent vs. the same hell bent opponent. The lesser of two evil is still evil and the result will be the same - EVIL.

The family of good vs. the family of evil. Nothing new under the sun. God says.....

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to DESTRUCTION, and "MANY" enter through it." Matt 7:13

"But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to LIFE, and ONLY A FEW find it." Matt 7:14

NEWT, I am in the right family and have eternal life - so go 'party' elsewhere until destruction comes. We are not partying with the GOP.

We may not want to listen to a man on gay marriage who has been married three times.

That strikes a chord with me. I can understand a second marriage since a person may have been very naive and married someone he or she didn't really know the first time. But the third time, no, something is really wrong with you if that happens. You either have poor judgment or you don't hold to your promises.

As regards multi-marriage people in general, though, do they not understand the pledge of "to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or or worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to have and to cherish, as long as we both shall live?" Maybe that last phrase escaped their memory or they never meant it in the first place.

I remember it well and I abide by it. It's been 41 years now in this, my first and last marriage.

lets see... the sodomites are like 2% of the population ... of that 2% .... maybe 10% wants to get married instead of just hooking up with a hold in the side of a bathroom stall.

so.... for .2% of the population were are suppose to throw out 10,000+ years of human tradition?

FU Gingrich and the horse you road in on.

Yep. I’d guess the rabid Newt contingent will be scarce on this thread. I heard him on Hannity’s radio show yesterday and he talked all around gun control but never said, himself, clearly, that he’d stand firmly against any anti-2A measures. He is a ‘third way’ acolyte of the Tofflers and sees America as needing to shift in some ways to become ‘modern . . . viable . . . relevant . . . whatever.’

RINO to the core and sadly indicative of the “Stupid Party’ leadership and enlightened thought.

There are at least 2 aspects to this argument. +one is allowing or affording homosexual pairings liberty and the right to privacy. The second is conferring the title “marriage” on them. Many people, not the least many conservatives, would support or at least accept the first. Far fewer can go along with the second. Both issues matter, not just the first. Newt sounds he-s making a mistake.

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.

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.

"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.
