In a recent interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich claimed that his multiple extramarital affairs actually make him “more normal” than other candidates (video below).
Gingrich said that Christians “recognize that I have not hidden from the facts of my life, that I have confessed my weaknesses and I have had to go to God for forgiveness and for reconciliation."
Popular VideoPeople were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:
“I think that most people can identify either with themselves or with friends or with loved ones that life has moments that are very sad and you wish wouldn’t have occurred, and then you look back on them and you seek forgiveness for not having been everything you could be."
“So, I think in that sense it may make me more normal than somebody who wanders around seeming perfect, and maybe not understanding the human condition and the challenges of life among the people.”
