Prediction: Gingrich is Toast

More precise prediction:
Gingrich is toast not because he is an unqualified, possibly sociopathic nutjob who has done his harmed the country significantly and would like to do some more of that...nor because he left two wives as soon as they got sick, nor because he can't keep it in his pants, nor because he's a blowhard moron, nor because he's a hypocrite, nor because he perfectly represents a stupid person's idea of what a smart person sounds like.


He's toast because he wanted an open marriage.

That the evangelicals are not going to tolerate.

The bad breaks just keep on comin' for us. If the GOP had counted the votes--not that they care about such things--Santorum would have been announced as the winner of Iowa when it mattered, and the race would have gotten far bloodier. If Newt's ex had waited a week, he might have won SC and, also, made it bloodier.

Newt's not done yet, though. There's some suggestion that he might latch onto Sarah Palin--one of the only people in the universe less qualified than himself--as a last, desperate lunge. Fortunately, he's loony enough to try to burn the GOP down on his way out the door.

Godspeed on that, Newt.

[Jesus speaking]

Matthew 5:31-32 - "It was also said, 'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.' But I say to you that anyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Matthew 19:3-9 - Some Pharisees [Jewish religious leadership at the time] came to him [Jesus], and to test him they asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause?" He answered, "Have you not read that the one who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." They said to him, "Why then did Moses command us to give a certificate of dismissal and to divorce her?" He said to them, "It was because you were so hard-hearted that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for unchastity, and marries another commits adultery."

It's constantly hilarious to me that there are so few specific critiques of behavior made by Jesus, and yet, modern christianists indulge themselves in all of them.

Boy did you call that one wrong.
Remember, Jesus forgives all who repent and are saved...
You are making the common beginner's error off assuming voters are either consistent or rational.

Interestingly, Jesus does not forgive all who repent.

Matthew 12:31-32 - [Jesus speaking] "Therefore I tell you, people will be forgiven for every sin and blasphemy, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word agaisnt humankind will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come."

LOL let me repeat that you are becoming dangerous...

Any idea about why 'spirit' first, then 'holy spirit' later? Are these supposed to be the same thing?
