Skip to comments.Gingrich to Church: 'Apologists' and 'Elites' Imposing Will on Citizens
Posted on 02/26/2012 8:40:02 PM PST by Red Steel
CUMMING, Ga. - Newt Gingrich turned the church pulpit into a history class when he addressed the congregation at First Redeemer Church, comparing the struggle of American colonies
"I don't come here as a religious leader and I don't come here as a saint," Gingrich said as soon as he began talking. "I come here as a citizen who has had a life that at times has fallen short of the glory of God, who has had to seek God's forgiveness and has had to seek reconciliation." As such, Gingrich said, he was speaking in the pulpit "as a historian, where I think I can talk with some credibility and some authority" on the role of God in America
Listing the demands of the colonists -- no taxation without representation, getting rid of British judges imposing dictatorial power -- Gingrich said America is back "in some ways" at the same state.
"You have elites in the bureaucracy, elites in the judgeship, frankly elites in the news media, elites in the academic world, and elites in politics -- and they would all like to impose on us an America that none of us believe in," he said to a congregation of over 2,000 people -- standing room only
Gingrich used the administration's decision as an example of "the inevitable nature of the left to use government to impose on us their values."
"Now they'll tell you, well they stand for separation of church and state," Gingrich said. "My answer to that is that they have perverted Thomas Jefferson's words beyond belief."
"What happens is you go from a request for toleration to the imposition of tyranny, and you do it with remarkable speed," he added.
Gingrich said that the religious foundation of America is being attacked on two fronts

God Bless Newt Gingrich.
The ultimate irony is that the liberal elites think it is they who will control the Saracens. When their little elitist heads are being separated from their little elitist necks maybe, just maybe in that last second they’ll realize how wrong they were. Maybe.
Was this a Black Church?
Oh I am, dear Retired Army, I am. My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. I dare not trust a sweeter frame, but wholly lean on Jesus name. My hope is the same as yours, come quickly Lord Jesus.
When one realizes the historical perspective Newt has in his fight for freedom, one realizes he is the only candidate that has got it right. There is no other candidate that could come close to having the issues correct at this time in our nation’s history. We need Newt like a fire needs a fire extinguisher. Washington DC is burning while the Emperor fiddles.
bump for later
I like him on many levels. This guy has the balls to tell the truth.
Dont be fooled by the millions in smears.
The way left just wants big government control do more-Obama
The way established just want better for themselves do little-Romney
The way religious just want to make a statement do less-Santorum
The people want...REAL change!-— Gingrich is the only one to think, explain, detail, promise.
Its not a popularity contest.
Its not a White/Black voting game.

If its only to grow govt dependency
If its only to empower the establishment..
If its only to feel better about our demise...
It will be only to keep it, as it is!.
Terrible for most. Dems dependent voting base.
Cometh the Hour- Cometh the Man?
Tea-Party Conservative - Newt Gingrich.
What are the rest going to do anyway?...without the Newt
to show them the way. It IS this hour!!
The onlycandidate we trust, with a will-do history of conservative can-do accomplishment.
Gingrichs numbers go up, the others go down, every time
we actually bother to listen!
Thank you for saying what I was thinking. Obama, or at least his teleprompter, will twist our history to prove his point. Newt is the only guy to take that tactic away from him......big time.
Go Newt! Can anyone even imagine a Romney presidency after reading this? THAT’S a nightmare.
I'll bet he turned the congregation into a history class. He probably turned the pulpit into a lectern.
They recognize the enemy alright, they are just using the situation to keep their supporters in line and on the reservation to keep themselves in power-—Hillary is a joke who stayed with a husband that ‘spit on her in her own home’(our White House)so she could have a place of power in future governments as she was given by the Obummer—God is not mocked and world history, including the USA is in Revelation and Daniel—read it and be happy, for it shall come to pass!
Amen law lady. Every day I wake up I tell the Lord, “Lord today would be a great day to return in the clouds. I’m ready. My calendar is open!!” :-) I am ready right now. Ready to go. No need to pack, it is all staying behind. Even this old ragged body. I’m gittin’ a new one!!!
I’ll take your post a step further, RetiredArmy.
American leftists are cowards. They will never grab a rifle, slip on a pack and die on a hilltop for their evil cause. Quite frankly, they need an army because they can’t and won’t muster an army made up of themselves. They’re hoping to use the Moohamadens as their army to enslave and kill us.
They’re too bloody stupid to see that they’re about to crushed between two opposing armies. When that realization comes to pass, they will come running to us to protect them from their muslim armies that they nurtured, supported and cheered for.
But, to their surprise, most of us won’t be here to protect them in those days. I plan to be at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb and not down here in this mess with the liberals and unbelievers!
Scripture is God given but mans interpetation varies—I do not believe there is such a thing as Rapture but we must do our best to see and understand the future predictions of the Bible-—I honor your beliefs and know that we are both on the same track if we know Christ as our personal Saviour.-—best to you and yours
Then I suggest you re read 1 Cor 15 and 1 Thes. Because they clearly talk about the Rapture. But, if you are truely a believer, when you go in the Rapture, you will not be sad. But, if you are one of the ones who think you have to live throught the Trib, once again I would say that you need to get back into the Scriptures. We ain’t going to see that wraft. Christ Himself made that clear and that is good with me.
