There are certain people here in America's government that you can always count on saying idiotic things. There's even an elite among these people, such as good ol' Newt Gingrich. A man that can give his wife divorce papers while she's in the hospital with cancer and then give a speech on family values. Now lets get to a more recent quote of his, from a talk he gave in Rock Church in Virginia:
"I think this is one of the most critical moments in American history," Gingrich said. "We are living in a period where we are surrounded by paganism."
Oh dear Goddess no, not the Pagans. Come on, seriously? At most there are only like a million and a half, maybe two million of us. I don't know about any other Pagan out there, but I didn't get the memo to start surrounding the U.S. Plus, since I live in the U.S, I kinda like having not surrounded and I'm pretty sure the other Pagans in the country will also like not being sorrounded.
I this point I feel sorry for conservatives. The republican party is supposed to be their party. For any of you conservatives out there reading this, when two of their top people (Mike Hukabee was also there and didn't disagree with Newt's statement) of your party are warning you of a Pagan threat, maybe it's time for you to give up on the republicans and create a new conservative part. One that would fight for conservative values like I don't know; states' rights, individual freedoms, and not involving the U.S. in international matters unless it's required... you know, things that the top republicans seem to have forgotten about a long time ago. Just some friendly advice.
