Newt Gingrich: Pastors Have A Duty From Christ To Run For Office And Fight Totalitarian Secularists [VIDEO]

Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

The American Renewal Project, an effort organized by Christian nationalist and Religious Right political operative David Lane to encourage pastors to run for office and to mobilize their congregations to get involved in politics, posted a video yesterday featuring Newt Gingrich telling pastors that they have a duty to fight back against “those who would impose a totalitarian secularism on us.”

“You’re at a moment in history that is as defining as anything in the Old Testament,” Gingrich said. “You’re at a point where some people have to have the courage to witness for Christ, some people have to have the courage to tell the truth to their flock, some people have to have the courage to get into the public arena themselves.”
