Of course, the media, they can’t figure evangelicals out, period, because you don’t start with a belief in the power of God. You don’t start with a belief in the power of faith, you don’t start with the belief that your faith is at the center of your life. So for a lot of the media, this is all very strange stuff. They understand a lot better friends of theirs that are totally atheist and secular than they do friends that are evangelical.
I think that the two key appeals are passion. I think they instinctively can tell that I care so deeply about this country, and the future of their children and grandchildren, that I’m different than a normal politician. And second, I think the sense that I understand that there’s a war against religion, and that I am prepared as you can see on newt.org in our 54 page paper on judgeships, I am prepared to actually fight back for the first time in our lifetime, and take on the judiciary when it is over-reaching, and when it’s trying to drive God out of life.
Newt….If you cared deeply about our country, you’d care deeply about it’s citizens. Seriously? “Drive God out of life”?
People like Newt and Santorum take a value system that has many thoughtful and lasting contributions to society…..and make a mockery of it.
