Newt Gingrich's admission that he committed adultery (again) while pursuing President Bill Clinton's Clinton's impeachment in the Monica Lewinsky affair "has won praise from another conservative Christian leader: The Rev. Jerry Falwell."
"He has admitted his moral shortcomings to me, as well, in private conversations," Falwell wrote in a weekly newsletter sent Friday to members of the Moral Majority Coalition and The Liberty Alliance. "And he has also told me that he has, in recent years, come to grips with his personal failures and sought God's forgiveness."
BTW: The former Georgia Republican congressman will be the commencement speaker at Falwell's Liberty University.
Meanwhile, Dobson and Falwell's fellow evangelicals are trashing Rudy Giuliani for having three wives and two messy divorces. Explain the difference. Besides the fact that Giuliani didn't leave his wives when they were hospitalized in the ICU, Giuliani is pro-choice, pro-gay rights and pro-gun control. Jerry Falwell's message: "Forgive" those who agree with your politics, vilify everyone else."
Falwell and his Bible-thumpers really don't stand for anything—except for themselves.
