Newt Gingrich For Gay Marriage

Now we have Newt Gingrich becoming the latest Republican to come out for gay marriage in his own strange words. Saying that the issue of gay marriage "is in every family & community & that momentum is clearly now in the direction in finding some way to...accommodate & deal with reality." Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is the latest leading Republican to strongly suggest that the GOP reconcile itself to the freedom to marry. R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director stated, "Log Cabin Republicans welcome former Speaker Newt Gingrich's remarks calling for a Republican reality check on marriage. Gingrich speaks for many Republicans who are concerned about our party's future & who are ready to accept the freedom to marry matters to many Americans, gay & straight. As Gingrich noted, LGBT people are part of every family & every community & the time has come for greater inclusion. It is particularly important & welcome to hear that Gingrich now understands the difference between church ceremonies & a civil marriage license & that equality is no threat to religious freedom." Of course we feel that religious freedom had nothing to do with his decision. It really falls under the category of most likely never running for public office again so therefore it’s safe for him to join the right side of history on this issue & support marriage equality. Or perhaps his gay half sister Candace Gingrich-Jones got through to him that love is love.
