Exclusive: Tim and Beverly LaHaye Will Endorse Newt Gingrich


The Brody File has learned that Newt Gingrich will receive an endorsement from Evangelical figures Tim and Beverly LaHaye. The announcement and more details are coming shortly.

The LaHaye's approached the Gingrich campaign about endorsing the presidential candidate.

This is a nice get for Newt and will play well with evangelicals in South Carolina. He needs some positive press now and both Tim and Beverly LaHaye are very well respected and well liked in the broader evangelical community.

WOW!
Sorry, but I cant believe they or any Christian would support someone like Gindrich.
Do they actualy know what he's supported in the past, and just what he all about?
Doesnt anyone actually RESEARCH people before throwing their suppost behind them?

So let's see--Newt is currently living in adultery with his third "wife," yet the LaHayes see fit to endorse him.

Good thing we we can think for ourselves. ;)

Appearently Rick Perry is too honest and too controversial, even for Conservative Christians. He is abandoned again. It is becoming clear that not even Moses would have won the nomination. Aaron spoke for him. Exo 4:10 And Moses said to Jehovah, O my Lord, I am not a man of words now, nor since You have spoken to Your servant, but I am slow of speech and of a slow tongue. Exo 4:11 And Jehovah said to him, Who has made man's mouth? Or who makes the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, Jehovah? Exo 4:12 And now go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.

Newt Gingrich actually accomplished great things FOR America like Welfare Reform and balancing our budgets, along with tackling other big problems America faced. He worked with Reagan Democrats to bring prosperity roaring back to America, while Mr. Romney became the 'Father of Homosexual Marriage in America," left the Republican Party in Mass in shambles, ran to the left of Ted Kennedy for the Senate and repudiated conservatism and Reagan's America to try to worm his way to become POTUS. I was a Romney supporter for 4 years until the scales fell from my eyes to see what a deceiver Mitt Romney really is. Romney governed from the left, then spoke from the right when he ran for POTUS, all the while sounding as if he was a real Conservative. Gingrich got things done, while Ron Paul would undo the current world order of peace and unravel it with the Chinese, Russians and Islamofascists rewriting the rules, with America in the back seat. Gingrich can and will get things done. Go Newt! Thanks

Mr. Gingrich is a serial adulterer, who has spent most of his time after retirement poking evangelicals in the eyes. How soon must we forget the "extreme rightwing social engineering" comment? Or did he not really mean it at the time?

Thank God that God is a forgiving God and not a God that hates his creation for making mistakes.. I along with all Christians in the world today would be in hell right now if God was not forgiving.. We make mistakes and like Moses, David and many other Bibilical figures we all have come short oh God's glory.. Stop being holier than thou and come down from that high and proud place you are sitting at and join us humble and thankful Christians that know thar God loves his creation and He forgives us our sins..

Sorry, but I don't think any group should endorse any political candidate. In an open society like ours, the common citizen is to be informed enough that each person should be free to make an intelligent vote.

I think this is true of any organization, newspaper or any specific block of people.

Anyone in the field would do better than the current WH resident except Ron Paul who is out of touch with the real world. If you have been legally divorced you are not committing adultery. Moses even permitted divorce. Yes, Newt has had bad judgement in the past, but what person in this world hasn't. If they say they haven't then they are a liar. We have to learn from our mistakes to do better.

I am glad to see someone else but Romney being endorsed by Christians. I don't quite understand the idea of supporting a Mormon.

Gingrich is Catholic which is based on Biblical Sound Doctrine which states that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are 1 and that Christ was born of virgin mary, died and resurrected on the third day.

Many Christians believe Mormonism is a part of Christianity when it is not for the reasons below. Mormons put more emphasis on the Book of Mormons than the scriptures. They believe the father existed as man at one time, but over time became God. He has a physical body and has a Wife (Celestial Mother). There is NO trinity and the father, son, and holy spirit are 3 seperate entities.They believe humans can become gods as well. The Holy Spirit is NOT God, but an influence like electricity. There is so much more that is not biblical about their belief system.

It's best to seek God in deciding who to vote for.

I also can not believe that Beverly and Tim Lahaye will endorse Newt Gingrich. How low can you go? I am a conservative Christian and I will not vote and hold my nose any more for the Doles, McCains, Gingrichs,Santoriums or anybody like them. These are the people that have been in Congress so long and got us in this mess. All the Unfair trade deals, all the money given to foreign governments, 900 bases all over the world,unbridled open borders immigration. Their kind have sold us down the river. I think it is their turn to hold their noses for us and vote Ron Paul. Just 4 years of Ron Paul can at least stop them from destroying America. I want all of these kind out of Congress. I am 55 years old and they can't fool me any more with their lies. I am very educated and read alot about what Congress is doing and most-not all are selling us down the river. I think they are traitors. If any of them gets the nomination, we will loose again. Since Reagan, I have had to hold my nose. No more.

Gingrich???
The same Gingrich who as flip flopped on abortion and gay marriage so many times weve lost count?
The same Gingrich who is for Open Borders with Mexico?
The same Gingrich who because of inside connections,actually profited on the housing collapse of 08 while Millions of Americans lost their life savings?
The same Gingrich who is in favour of Obama's new NDAA Bill allowing the detainment's of ANY US citizen without trial or disclosed reason..indefinitely?

The same Gingrich who served his second wife divorce papers,while she was in the Hospital dieing of cancer, while his new girl friend was on his arm?

Get educated Mr.LaHaye, before you so loosely throw your pearls before the swine.
