One of the best answers, in my opinion, of Saturday night’s debate came after spending almost 15 minutes on contraceptives and grilling the field on how they would address a same sex couple on the issue of protecting the definition of marriage. Newt Gingrich answered:
I just want to raise — since we spent this much time on these issues, I just want to raise the point about the news media bias. You don’t hear the opposite question asked. Should the Catholic Church be forced to close its adoption services in Massachusetts because it won’t accept gay couples which is exactly what the state has done. Should the Catholic Church be driven out of providing charitable services in the District of Columbia because it won’t give in to bigotry? Should the Catholic Church find itself discriminated against by the Obama administration on key delivering of service because of the bias of the administration? The bigotry question goes both ways. There’s a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side. None of it gets covered by the news media.
Well put Mr. Speaker. You can watch the video of his answer here.
