This is an article about Newt Gingrich's latest thoughts.
Obama has appointed Harry Knox to the WH Advisory Council Faith Based Initiatives. He is a former Methodist Pastor and is currently the Director of the Human Rights campaign (an outspoken activist for the LGBT community).
Based on the Obama appointing this guy to the committee, Newt feels that the Obama Administration is "anti-religious". This is a far stretch to make. The man used to serve God, maybe not as a Christian, but nevertheless...
This just goes to show you how intolerant the Republican Party can be. This so-called "Big tent" they are trying to say they have... as long as you aren't against/question anything that the Catholic Church stands for, then you can be included in this "Big Tent".
I think it is wonderful for Obama to include all faiths on this council as we are a multi-denominational country, then all citizens should have someone at the table representing them. I'm sure that there will be Jewish and Muslim representation as well.
You don't have to belong to a religion to have faith. I think it's high disingenuous to say that the administration is anti religious just because they don't follow your religion!
