Gingrich Slams Left's 'Anti-Religious Bigotry'

Ad Feedback

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich lashed out Wednesday against what he called liberals' "anti-religious bigotry" against Christianity.

Addressing The National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C,, Gingrich warned that the "crisis of secularism" that has gripped Europe has taken hold in the United States.
    
Gingrich cited today's culture and recent court cases like one involving the Mojave Desert Cross as evidence that anti-religious values and principles are dominating academics, the media, and the legal system.

"Imagine how hard it must have been for the Polish people with a government that would not allow school prayer and that kept tearing down crosses," he said. "It's hard to imagine that kind of government in a free society."

Other prayer breakfast speakers included Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and pro-life activist Lila Rose. Catholic leaders at the breakfast also instructed attendees to unite and support a culture of life.
