Anti-Gay AFA Loves Marriage So Much, They’ve Endorsed Gingrich for Prez

Meet the many wives of Newt "Marriage Protector" Gingrich: Marianne Ginther Gingrich, Jackie Battley Gingrich & Callista Bisek Gingrich

If the Southern Poverty Law Center hadn’t already designated the American Family Association a hate group, we’d be afraid that the group would have something of a credibility crisis on its hands after endorsing New Gingrich for president.

Newt’s virulently anti-gay, so there’s no problem there. The thing is, he’s also virulently anti-fidelity, having twice divorced wives he cheated on to marry his then mistresses. Wife number one notoriously got the Newt boot for “not being young or pretty enough to be First Lady.” Oh, and also having cancer.

Wife number two was also divorced after falling ill. Newt must have skipped the “in sickness and in health” part of his marriage vows.

The Des Moines Register writes:

The fact is simple — marriage equals money. Groups like AFA need gay people more than they need to “protect marriage.” If AFA wanted to protect marriage, it would be supporting laws to make divorce harder, not candidates who serve as its poster child.
No matter how much one twists logic, it is factually (and morally) impossible to reconcile the desire to “protect marriage” with the endorsement of Newt Gingrich. This was a disastrous decision by an organization that appears to care more about profiting from gay fearmongering than strengthening marriage.

The moral of this story, therefore, is clear. If you abandon two wives for two mistresses all you need to do is oppose the happiness of two people of the same sex to have your moral creds restored. Meet the Pharisees of the 21st century; a bunch of sad sacks time is leaving behind.
