Newt Gingrich Compares Gay Marriage and Paganism

Newt Gingrich knows what people want to hear, and he is more than happy to say it. Case in point -- People for the American Way reports that Gingrich held a conference call with Religious Right leaders on Wednesday, when at one point the subject of gay marriage came up.

Here's what Gingrich had to say about the subject:

"It's pretty simple: marriage is between a man and a woman. This is a historic doctrine driven deep into the Bible, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, and it's a perfect example of what I mean by the rise of paganism. The effort to create alternatives to marriage between a man and a woman are perfectly natural pagan behaviors, but they are a fundamental violation of our civilization."

Here is the audio so you can hear it yourself:
