Just a quick note about an interview I read at:
I mentioned in a previous post that the terrible consequence of taking God out of our public discourse and government is the loss of our GOD given rights. The Declaration of Independence rightly identifies the source of our rights as being God Himself. As I just learned, Gingrich agrees...
Lofton: What in your opinion ought to be the relationship between God and government.
Gingrich: Well, I think it’s pretty clear in the original document, the Declaration of Independence of the Founding Fathers, that we are endowed by our Creator certain inalienable rights which are the rights of liberty, life and the pursuit of happiness. And I think what every listener needs to understand is that in the minds of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the people who wrote that document, they literally meant that your rights come from God, that you then loan them to the government, which is why the Declaration of Independence begins “We the people…”. And therefore if we drive God out of the public square we drive out the source of our own rights and our own source of power. And that’s why I started from that premise that if you don’t have some understanding that your rights are a gift from God, and you, not the politician, you and not the liberals, you, not the bureaucrats, are the center of the society, I think you can’t explain America.
I haven't really been a fan of Gingrich for the 2012 run but he is sounding more and more presidenttial and right. Check out this clip...
