From ThinkProgress:

A website that promotes adultery has endorsed Newt Gingrich for president, and even erected a giant billboard in Pennsylvania to announce it. Next to a picture of Gingrich making a “shhh” gesture, the billboard reads: "Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband". Ashleymadison.com, a dating website for people looking to cheat on their spouses, welcomes visitors with the tag line, “Life is short, Have an affair.” Gingrich has admitted to cheating on his wives, and Noel Biderman, the founder of the cheaters website explained, “Now that Newt is the leading contender in the race for the GOP nomination, we felt compelled to make a point to illustrate how times have changed when a serial divorcee/adulterer is capturing the hearts of the American people.”


Oh, Newt, you scumbag. I think your ass got trolled. Ashley Madison should put these up all over the country.
On the heels of this endorsement for Gingrich comes the endorsement of Pastor Jim Garlow, a chief proponent of Proposition 8. Garlow is famous for comparing children losing their parents on 9/11 to the consequences of same-sex couples adopting. In a completely serious, non-ironic email, Garlow endorses Gingrich because, wait for it, he’ll protect marriage:

"Destroying the definition of marriage is not merely ‘left.’ It is wrong. It is sin. Stealing funds from future generations and spending it so that they will be closer to slavery than freedom is not merely ‘left.’ It is wrong. It is sin. Although Mr. Gingrich is not running for ‘Theologian-in-Chief’ but ‘Commander-in-Chief,’ he grasps these issues. He understands the moral component."

Yep. Gingrich understands the moral component of protecting marriage. He’s so good at it, he’s pledged to do it three times. He loves his country so much, he had to cheat on his wife. TRUE PATRIOT, Y’ALL.

In the end, the presidency is different than any other job. You want to be able to look into them and understand, do they share my values? Do they know what I’m frightened of? Do they have answers that are real? … In a sense, our Judeo-Christian civilization is under attack from two fronts. On one front, you have a secular, atheist, elitism. And on the other front, you have radical Islamists. And both groups would like to eliminate our civilization if they could. For different reasons, but with equal passion.
