October 18, 2011: "How can you have judgment if you have no faith? How can I trust you with power if you don't pray?" -- Newt Gingrich, Republican presidenti...
Ahh, but @unseen, that is the wonder of religion. All you have to do is ask for forgiveness... It only matters if god forgives you.
This from the slimebag who cheats on his wives when they become seriously ill:
Let's remember, Newt famously dumped wife #1 for wife #2 while wife #1 was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. As in literally went to the hospital to present her with divorce papers while she was recovering from surgery for uterine cancer.
He eventually dumped wife #2 for wife #3 shortly after wife #2 was diagnosed with MS back in 1999. And he was having the affair on wife #2 with wife #3 while he was turning the country upside down trying to drive Bill Clinton from office over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Yea, we can see YOU have boundaries, Newt. POS.
I speak rhetorically, but you mean, Trish, judgement!
LOL, Dennis, this guy makes me wanna puke. I could really lose a lot of weight on the Newt Gingrich diet...just hearing his name is enough to purge oneself!
All personal attacks against Newt Gingrich aside, this is simply preaching to the choir. He has a heavily right-wing audience to appeal to, and OH, why not throw a little "faith positively effects judgment" in there?
If faith does anything to judgment, it clouds it. I point to the Dark Ages as direct evidence for this, along with homophobia and evolution/climate change denial. There are many other examples.
Church and state should be entirely separated. I don't give a shit if you're Christian or Muslim or Jewish at home, but at the office you should be secular.
Anorexia at it's finest then.
@Dennis....Yes, it is! Fool proof! You don't even have to stick your finger down your throat...Just the name "Newt" will get the process going! LOL (I apologize to all the the little slimy newts who have to share their name with this slimy dude)...it's just not fair. They should sue.
If only they had legal precedent, viz. newts had 'rights'.
This is no 'human'. Albeit he is one... What I find oxymoronic is that religion at it's finest engages and paradoxically pronounces what we are not. It reduces ourselves down to the very thing it denies. It takes us as primates on a level with the rest currently surviving while denying this, and also denies us the dignity of being homo sapiens sapiens. However, we were 'breathed from divinity'. I find it more fulfilling to be of my heritage of reality. To value a woman's care in mutuality with mine, as a man in reality, is infintesably large over betraying her trust. As a human. Not and as a bonobo, or an angel either.
It's funny how all these so-called Christians talk about family values, how atheists couldn't possibly have morals or good judgement without God, and yet we see and hear day after day after day about all the atrocities these "good" Christians commit every F-ing day. Then other "good" Christians either claim so-and-so wasn't REALLY a Christian, or better yet, they defend them for "falling from grace" and support them as they admit their sins and swear it won't happen again. I am so sick of their hypocrisy. Atheists don't go around defending bad behavior or ignorance, whether you're an atheist or not. We will call you out and hold you accountable. Christians won't do that to their own...but they'll sure crucify us any chance they get!
