article imageFormer Navy Chaplain blasts Gingrich's new stance on gay marriage

Former US Navy chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt said that former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich's new stance on same-sex marriage is "giving into sin" and makes him "worthy of death."
There's a video posted onto YouTube by Gordon Klingenschmitt, a former chaplain with the United States Navy, directed towards former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Klingenschmitt had some interesting words to give towards Gingrich. This is in regards to Gingrich changing his stance on the issue of LGBT marriage which is used synonymously as same-sex marriage and gay marriage. According to Klingenschmitt, Gingrich succumbed to “demonic voices” due to “pandering to the left.” He accused Gingrich of stepping away from religion to establish himself as a moderate Republican to run for the 2016 United States Presidency.
Gingrich was one of the contenders back in the GOP primary for the Republican Party's nomination to challenge Democratic incumbent Barack Obama for the US Presidency in 2012. The nomination ended up going to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Klingenschmitt's video about Gingrich goes back to an interview Gingrich had with the Huffington Post. In the interview, Gingrich reflected upon Romney's loss against Obama. Gingrich said that himself or Texas Governor Rick Perry would've fared better against Obama than Romney would have. The issue of same-sex marriage was also addressed in that interview.
With respects to same-sex marriage, Gingrich said that the Republican Party had to come to grips with reality of the general public becoming more accepting of the notion. He also said that the GOP could accept the difference between marriage in a religious place and a marriage document issued by the state government.
Klingenschmitt, blasting Gingrich's change on the stance, said that homosexuality is worthy of death according to the Bible. Thus, Klingenschmitt believes that Gingrich's change on the stance is “worthy of death.” In short, that's what Klingenschmitt thinks about Gingrich's change on the same-sex marriage stance.
