Newt Gingrich and the Constant Pressure of Secularism

Shortly before announcing his bid for the 2011 GOP nomination for president, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich spoke to the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast about his conversion to Catholicism. Gingrich discussed his worry about anti-religious values and principles becoming dominant “in the academic, news media and judicial class in America.” The trouble with this secularism, he maintained, is that it is arbitrary, incoherent and at odds with the liberating theme of salvation, and the power of faith to transform lives and cultures, that lies at the heart of the Christian church and message. Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly has archived a seven-minute condensation of Gingrich’s remarks.
