(Look Callista. No tears. I am trading up to Monica Lewinsky.)
I may be dense (stupid) or lazy in my research but I cannot find out how fast or how much Candidate Gingrich paid to get the three annulments from Civil Marriage in order to marry his present Catholic wife in the RCC.
I get a lot of non-information in the Lame Lame Lame Street Media on this. I get the opinion that he doesn’t have to annul civil marriages not in the RCC? That has changed?
I did not marry in the RRC twenty odd years ago because the church wanted $2,500 to annul my wife’s previous ceremony at City Hall in NYC - a lot of money back then that we could not spare - that and time, months and months, perhaps years to annul what in Grade School, the Nuns said was not valid to begin with.
BTW, since Catholics are the only validly married Christians in the eyes of God, meaning to this day all Protestants are still Bastards because their parents did not have a Catholic marriage etc. – why should the freakin Catholic church even care if Gays and Lesbians will be satisfied by a civil marriage at city hall????
Since civil marriage does not count in the eyes of Holy Mother Church, why the f*ck so much fuss over gay marriage if after all the gays and us Prots are damned to hell anyway in their eyes, civil marriage or not?
Hypocrisy to the nth degree in the RCC?
Getting back to Newt. How fast and how much did Cardinal Wuerl? get to grease Newt’s marriage into heaven worthy status.
This is the kind of Religious Liberty only for the RCC that Bishop Lori keeps bitchin about on Capitol Hill.
Martin Luther had a word for this modern day equivalent to selling indulgences - quickie Annulments for the Rich.
This kind of shit started the Protestant Reformation.
Hey Newt. How big will the new Papal Palace on the Mall Ellipse, blocking the view of the Jefferson Memorial, how big and expensive and paid for out of the Pentagon’s budget will it be, once the RCC gets you into the White House?
Inquiring minds want to know.
