Faith Leaders Defend Gingrich


Some prominent evangelical Christians who back Newt Gingrich have come out with a statement of support. The following people have signed the statement: Congressman J.C. Watts, Dr. George Barna, Dr. Jim Garlow, Dr. Richard Lee, and David Lane.

Stay in the know. Get The Brody File Weekly:

"The five of us attended last weekend's positive and beneficial gathering of Christian conservatives at the Pressler Ranch near Houston. We were united in principles and values, and will remain so.  However, there was no consensus regarding a candidate, and those of us that came supporting Newt Gingrich left still supporting Newt Gingrich whole-heartedly.

"It is unfortunate that early press reports incorrectly stated that there was a consensus for Santorum, or that the '150 leaders endorsed Santorum.' Such was not the case. Many there were and still are for Newt Gingrich.

"Rick Santorum won the majority of the votes (by 9 votes in the first ballot), and he is to be congratulated for that. However, while we truly respect Rick Santorum and Rick Perry, we believe Newt Gingrich to be the only candidate that has the intellectual strength and the capacity to stop the Left's attack on morality, the economy, basic freedoms and our religious liberty.

"In addition, Mr. Gingrich is the social conservative that has the capacity to raise funds and produce a national organization that would allow him to compete with and defeat Barack Obama.  For the sake of the nation, we remain steadfastly committed to Newt Gingrich."

With certainty, Newt is the candidate to defeat Obama and lead this country to it's core values!

I have prayed nonceasingly for voters' discernment in choosing the candidate who will BOLDLY lead, speak up, stand up and follow God's guidance. Newt Gingrich is God's chosen one.

PLEASE...Let's get him the support it will take to win the nomination and Presidency of the USA!

The true conservative in this race is Ron Paul. He has never changed his position. His beliefs are truly conservative. Newt is a disgrace. Look at his record and then at Ron Paul's.
