Only on Brody File: Gingrich's Altar 'Call' to Iowa Pastors

The Brody File has learned that Newt Gingrich will conduct a conference call this afternoon with some Iowa Christian pastors and leaders. Don Wildmon, founder and chairman of the American Family Association who is supporting Gingrich, sent out a note to them.

The note is below.

Gingrich needs evangelical Christians to get on board in Iowa. He has been courting pastors for months during this election cycle and, quite frankly, Gingrich has been doing these kind of events with pastors around the country for years.

Here’s the correspondence given to The Brody File

Dear Iowa pastors and friends:

I am inviting you (and select Christian Iowa Leaders) to join me on a Conference Call with Former Speaker Newt Gingrich this Friday, December 30, 12 Noon (CST).

Dr. Jim Garlow will emcee the call, pastor Skyline Church San-Diego, founder of the California Pastors Rapid Response Team, a group of several thousand pastors who led the successful charge for Prop. 8 in 2008, a Constitutional Amendment to ban same-sex marriage in California.

These are important and critical days in which to live and serve the Lord. I'm praying that the Lord is doing something dramatic in our time, and Iowa is leading the way on January 3rd.

Newt is leading the thrust to remove elitist judges who ignore the American people, like the 3 Iowa Supreme Court Justices who voted in 2009 to impose homosexual marriage on all Iowans.

On the call we will hear directly from Newt about this historic undertaking and hopefully have a chance to ask him about his plans for his "21st Century Contract With America."

I have been impressed with Newt and have come to the conclusion that Newt is the one person who can lead us out of the awful environment created by the present occupant in the White House. As Newt has expressed it, "America’s exceptional nature is based on the self-evident truths contained in the Declaration of Independence. Our rights are endowed by our Creator and they are unalienable." This is the type of understanding and strong leadership America needs.

Our Nation requires courageous, principled conservative leadership now more than ever.....from someone who understands that our rights as Americans are a gift from God, not government.

Please join me on this conference call with Newt Gingrich. Your participation is important to our future.

Thank you for your active participation in these critically important times.

Don Wildmon
American Family Association

I would think that he would be reaching out to the Catholic churches too. I don't see him doing that. Doesn't hurt to listen but they better be praying on who to vote for as God sees the heart.

Now that the Gingrich bubble seems to have burst, attention shifts back to Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. Here's an idea: Next time you have a chance to interview one of the GOP candidates, PLEASE ask him the following question:

"Do you believe that we are living in what evangelicals refer to as The End Times, and that Jesus' return is imminent?"

I think any politician's long-term views of public policy will probably be tainted by the belief that some kind of supernatural Apocalypse and Second Coming is likely to occur in the foreseeable future.
