I heard Newt Gingrich on C-SPAN Washington Journal this morning.
He was spouting crap about Radical Islam and Secular Socialism.
Got me to thinking, where is this guy coming from--I made a magnificent effort to understand him.
I heard him actually say "... the spiritual side of life is more important than the secular...".
I wonder, should that kind of premise be welcome on the public stage? Is there a valid argument that considerations informed by religious belief are or are not helpful?
