Newt Gingrich: Serial Adulterer, Serial Groom, and Morally Bankrupt Gasbag.
He’s had three wives and cheated on the first two. He hasn’t cheated on the third one, so he says. At least not Yet. He signed Bob Vander Plaat’s (whomever the heck he is) Pledge entitled “The Marriage Vow: A Declaration of Dependence upon MARRIAGE and FAMILY“. He almost had to.
Here’s the Pledge, and of course, true to the
Sharia Clerics Religious Right”s need to control the country by forcing upon everyone their own Religious beliefs, even though they might not be yours, it includes a pledge to meddle into other people’s personal lives as well as the co-mingling Church and State. They even mention Sharia while not noticing the irony of it all. These are the same people who aren’t bothered at all that one of their most beloved “Justices” declared that women are not protected by the Constitution at all. So who needs that stinkin’ ERA?
The Candidate Vow:
Therefore, in any elected or appointed capacity by which I may have the honor of serving our fellow citizens in these United States, I the undersigned do hereby solemnly vow to honor and to cherish, to defend and to uphold, the Institution of Marriage as only between one man and one woman. I vow to do so through my:
–Personal fidelity to my spouse.
–Respect for the marital bonds of others.
–Official fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, supporting the elevation of none but faithful constitutionalists as judges or justices.
–Vigorous opposition to any redefinition of the Institution of Marriage – faithful monogamy between one man and one woman – through statutory-, bureaucratic-, or court-imposed recognition of intimate unions which are bigamous, polygamous, polyandrous, same-sex, etc.
–Recognition of the overwhelming statistical evidence that married people enjoy better health, better sex, longer lives, greater financial stability, and that children raised by a mother and a father together experience better learning, less addiction, less legal trouble, and less extramarital pregnancy.
–Support for prompt reform of uneconomic, anti-marriage aspects of welfare policy, tax policy, and marital/divorce law, and extended “second chance” or “cooling-off” periods for those seeking a “quickie divorce.”
–Earnest, bona fide legal advocacy for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) at the federal and state levels.
–Steadfast embrace of a federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which protects the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman in all of the United States.
–Humane protection of women and the innocent fruit of conjugal intimacy – our next generation of American children – from human trafficking, sexual slavery, seduction into promiscuity, and all forms of pornography and prostitution, infanticide, abortion and other types of coercion or stolen innocence.
–Support for the enactment of safeguards for all married and unmarried U.S. Military and National Guard personnel, especially our combat troops, from inappropriate same-gender or opposite-gender sexual harassment, adultery or intrusively intimate commingling among attracteds (restrooms, showers, barracks, tents, etc.); plus prompt termination of military policymakers who would expose American wives and daughters to rape or sexual harassment, torture, enslavement or sexual leveraging by the enemy in forward combat roles.
–Rejection of Sharia Islam and all other anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control.
–Recognition that robust childbearing and reproduction is beneficial to U.S. demographic, economic, strategic and actuarial health and security.
–Commitment to downsizing government and the enormous burden upon American families of the USA’s $14.3 trillion public debt, its $77 trillion in unfunded liabilities, its $1.5 trillion federal deficit, and its $3.5 trillion federal budget.
–Fierce defense of the First Amendment’s rights of Religious Liberty and Freedom of Speech, especially against the intolerance of any who would undermine law-abiding American citizens and institutions of faith and conscience for their adherence to, and defense of, faithful heterosexual monogamy.
You see, because he is running for President, Newt is now a member of the “Marriage is Sacred” club. These are self-described “Christians” who strongly believe that Marriage is between one man and one woman. What they actually mean is one woman and one man at a time. If not for the ease of divorce, they would have to be polygamists to be happy.Having found the correct passage that gets them to Pass Go as often as they want, these smorgasboard Christians realize that divorce is not acceptable unless one of the two commits adultery. So whenever they want to get rid of a spouse, they use the adultery loophole, and all they have to do is find their next spouse up ahead and have sex with her or him. This bunch loves them their One Man-One Woman
at a time marriages. They believe marriage is very sacred. That’s why they enjoy doing it over and over again. This sacred ritual needs to be protected! That’s why they strongly support the “Defense Of Marriage Act”. It allows them to retain the sanctity of marriage over and over and over again while harassing and criticizing everybody else. The truth is barely half of US adults are married. And that’s a record low. People learn from watching these legal One Spouse At A Time For The Lord hypocrites. Nobody wants to be like them.
I call them “smorgasboard” Christians for a reason. They seem to use passages that suit them and rationalize away those that don’t. Fundamentalist and Smorgasboard Christians can do that. They’re special. They have this loose leaf notebook where they get to put only the passages in their bible that matters, or something. Apparently their loose leaf bible does not contain information on The Book of Life That Records What They Have Done. In this way, they can do whatever the hell they want and not have to worry about answering for their behavior later. No matter what they do, they are “Saved”. They are free to live the worst lives ever, just so long as they remember to say “I’m sorry” when they get caught doing something horrendous. How cool is that? Even the 7 Deadly Sins work differently with these people. For example, if you are a gluton like Jerry Falwell was, that one doesn’t count. What counts is someone else’s lust. Some deadly sins (read, “mine”) are just more deadly than others (read “yours”), you know? They “Fall short of the glory of God”. You, on the other hand, are going to hell.
Newt is an expert at these religious loopholes. He not only committed adultery in two marriages, he even asked his next wives to marry him before he was divorced — so there wasn’t too much of a gap in wifely services. Just ask Marianne Gingrich.
She says she should have seen the red flags. “He asked me to marry him way too early. And he wasn’t divorced yet. I should have known there was a problem.”
Within weeks or months?
She looks skeptical. “It’s not so much a compliment to me. It tells you a little bit about him.”
Just think: Considering his pattern, The Pillsbury Doughboy could easily be the first President to enter the White House with one wife and leave with another, and he knows America knows it. So…. Newt has signed a pledge that, among other things, keeps his current wife safe for 4 years, if he becomes President. I would imagine that if he doesn’t become President, all bets will be off. It must be a great time to be Newt’s wife. That is, so long as she doesn’t get sick. Everybody knows about the cancer of his first wife, but not many know he ditched his second wife 8 months after he found out she had MS. Christian, my ass.
As if signing the above Church-Run- State Pledge didn’t go far enough. Newt wrote his own additional pledge in a letter, just to trump the existing pledge. Newt just loves to have the last word. Besides, who knows more about marriage than Newt. Goodness knows, he’s done it enough times to set the ‘example’. You can read Gasbag Gingrich’s written load of crap in its entirety here.
To be sure, he pushed all the Right buttons, though.
His letter goes even further to ensure the inclusion of all the appropriate meddling-unconstitutional-promises- while -interfering- in- the- rights- of -others that so endear the religious-zealot. It’s the kind of pledge they love, because it demands that individual rights be honored just so long as they are rights they approve of.
No doubt about it. Newt’s letter will work fine for the Religious Right, because Newt is a Republican. If Newt were a Democrat, he would simply be written off as the serial-philandering pig he is. But not The New Newt. No sir. He asked God for forgiveness and God said Yes, which means all of you must forgive him too. That’s how it works. You do whatever the hell you want to anybody and then ask for forgiveness when you get caught. Then, Poof! Your nastiness is wiped out and your slate is all clean so that you can do it all again. Rinse and Repeat. He even mentions the wildly popular “Right of people to rule themselves,” which translates nicely in reality into the Our Right To Tell You What To Do. And then there’s the Old Standby about Judges Ruling The Way We Want Them To Instead of The Way Those Other People Want Them To.
Newt’s little pledge-addendum also includes the promise to defend the ‘unborn,’ which is also Very Important to meddlers who think laws don’t apply to them and they should just ignore them if they don’t Approve. Are you 12 years-old and just raped by your Uncle Joe? Tough For You! Are you a rape victim? Well give birth to the psycho’s baby beaaatch. Obviously, you asked for it. Are you currently about to die? Tough. You ain’t the Unborn. Then there’s the promise to defend the unborn while not giving a shit if they starve to death or have no health care once they are born is a Hallmark of the Religious Right.
Newt didn’t leave anything out in his personal pledge in which his own personal fidelity problem is buried. No sir. Let us not forget the critical “Right To Religious Freedom,” which translates into You Will Do What Our Religion Says You Will Do Or Else We Will Harass You Women
just like Islam does only we aren’t allowed to kill you, dammit. This also applies to you demon homosexuals. Why can’t you all be on the down-low like so many of those “Christians” are? Then you could get caught and just ask for forgiveness after you finally no longer can get away with denying it. God likes that! You could do like Jimmy Swaggart did and just cry and forget about your habit of visiting hotel rooms with hookers. Or be like Ted Haggard and decide you are “Heterosexual with issues“. That’s how it’s done, silly!
Newt-The-Family-Values Guy signed his letter,
Priceless. The words, “Newt” and “Sincerely” in the same text.
They often try to say that homosexuality is a threat to marriage. Not so. People like Newt Gingrich and their multiple divorces are the real threat to marriage. Exactly how “Sacred” is marriage to a bunch of hypocritical busy-bodies who find marriage so sacred they switch spouses as often as the ‘spirit’ moves them?
“He believes that what he says in public and how he lives don’t have to be connected. If you believe that, then yeah, you can run for president.” –Marianne Gingrich
The Hallmark of The Religious Right AND its leaders.
