While Surfing the Net....

While surfing the Net, I came across a biographical bit about Newt Gingrinch. Seems that in 2006 he was given an award by the Ataturk Society of America, which presented the ASA Leadership Award to Speaker Newt Gingrich "for commemoration of his contributions to publicizing Ataturk's Legacy" in the House Caucus Room on May 16, 2006.

Gingrich has frequently written and spoken about Ataturk, praising his efforts to secularize the public life of Turkey, creating a state free of religious control, even banning wearing of religious garments in the workplace.

This is the same Gingrich, is it, who has spoken of American secularism as a nightmare, driving God out of public life. He has said that anti-religious bigotry is responsible for the decline in Americal morals. At length, repeatedly, to the delight of Tea Party faithfuls.

So is he for secularism or against it? Or does he favor a specifically Christian state while speaking out against a Muslim one?

Or does he just want to make a point, win an argument, at any cost, regardless of the larger truth?
