This afternoon, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich officially announced his candidacy for President of the United States. Gingrich, a former Georgia-resident, has long been the subject of speculation from political pundits over his status as a candidate.
“Today I am announcing my candidacy for President of the United States,” Gingrich or one of his aides posted on his Twitter account.
A quick glance at Gingrich's new website (revamped today) didn't reveal any dastardly plans to curtail the LGBT equality, though Gingrich has made his position on LGBT equality perfectly clear in the past – he wants none of it.
Of course, Gingrich is reaching out to conservative religious voters by stating his intention to defend life and religious liberty. How would he do that? By nominating right-wing judges, of course.
Check out his announcement here:
I think it's good that the thrice-married Gingrich avoids certain keywords like “traditional marriage” and “homosexual agenda” in his plan to save America. Still, any candidate that donates money to anti-gay organizations like the National Organization for Marriage or the American Family Association or who thinks that gay couples shouldn't be allowed to adopt children makes no real attempt to hide his bigoted feelings.
