    Gingrich is a funny one. He's knows what he's saying is total bullshit, and he knows that the typical Republican voter will eat it up.

    I liked him better when he was going around the country lecturing with Dr. Dean Ornish about the value of a healthy diet.

    No, he is making a valid point that libtards dont fathom, because their brains are eaten up with liberalism.

    Heres the point. A secular country will not take religious fanatics serious. They'll think "No one would die or murder in the name or religion, I mean, come on, fairy tale religion?" And they'll underestimate Islamic radicals.

    They'll say we must "tolerate" the radicals. Why? Because the atheists will view the religious fanatics as inferior. As if they haven't evolved enough yet, and feel sorry for them, hence the need to be sympathetic and tolerant of them.

    I heard it put will by a friend. Liberals look at bears as the type you see in a Disney movie, or a Nissan Leaf commercial. Harmless, fun, cuddly, fun animals. So when a small black bear mauls a child, they're shocked. "Oh my God!! I can't believe the bear did that!!!" Well, yeah, he's a BEAR FOR GODS SAKE!!!


    Same concept. A secular America will tolerate and underestimate radical Islamists. And before long, the cancer will grow to the point that it's too late.

    Makes perfect sense to those of us who:

    A) Know bears will klll you.
    B) Know radical Muslims will too.

    But is it more ridiculous to vote for Newt while he says that stuff?

    Or to vote for an unknown candidate who simply spews "Hope! Change! Bush is bad!"

    Yeah. It's not a highly likely scenario. But possible. I first hear the idea of an atheist society being slowly taken by an outside radical religious influence as a sociology undergrad in the 90's. Never thought it'd be discussed mainstream. But it is.

    So he fears that our country will be a country with no god that is dominated by people who worship a god.

    Huh?
