So says Newt Gingrich, and he should know:
And what was Obama's sin? Apparently he has appointed a gay man to the administration's Advisory Council on Faith Based Initiatives:
"I think their goal is to have a very secular America in which government dominates everything," he said. "Why wouldn't you put an anti-religious, left-wing zealot on a faith-based group? It's a perfect pattern for this administration."
Since 2005, Knox has served as the director of the Human Rights Campaign, a national organization that advocates on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals. He is also a former Methodist pastor.
So, to be clear on this, the evidence of Obama's "anti-religious" character is the fact that he puts a gay, Christian, Methodist minister on a panel, the purpose of which is to advise the administration on how to engage in faith-based initiatives.
The fact that the committee is religiously and ideologically diverse, and includes members who are opposed to gay rights, abortion, and lots of other things the administration favors, irrelevant. The one gay guy on the panel, that's all that matters.
This, I think, says more about Gingrich than it does about Obama.
