Newt Gingrich: Government Should Respect "Our Religion"

Image from WriteChick Press
In this country, the term "religious freedom" means different things to different people. To me, it means (partly) that I have the freedom not to practice a religion. For others (and also me), it means that people in this country are free to practice the religion of their choosing, or not. But to some--such as people who'd like the Constitution replaced with the Ten Commandments, but are fearful of "Sharia Law"--it means everyone should be free to practice a religion. Generally Christianity, but specifically whatever sect or denomination the speaker happens to believe in.

And here, "speaker" is most appropriate. One Newton Leroy Gingrich would seem to be one from the latter example. And, P.S.? There is no "war on religion" being waged by President Obama, or anyone else in government. That's B.S.
