MANCHESTER, New Hampshire, January 13, 2012 ( – Although eager to point out “bigotry” by Christians who do not embrace gay rights, the media is strangely quiet about the increasing discrimination against Christians, according to Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich delivered the remarks during a GOP presidential candidate debate in Manchester earlier this week, noting that the one-sidedness of the “bigotry” question demonstrates serious bias in the mainstream media.


“You don’t hear the opposite question asked. Should the Catholic Church be forced to close its adoption services in Massachusetts because it won’t accept gay couples, which is exactly what the state has done?” Gingrich asked. “Should the Catholic Church be driven out of providing charitable services in the District of Columbia because it won’t give in to secular bigotry?”

“Should the Catholic Church find itself discriminated against by the Obama administration in key delivery of services because of the bias and bigotry of the administration?” he asked, referencing the Obama administration’s unprecedented denial of a health care grant to the U.S. Bishops over their pro-life stance.

“The bigotry question goes both ways and there’s a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side, and none of it gets covered by the media,” he concluded to applause.

Fellow candidate Mitt Romney agreed, noting that Gingrich’s was correct about the backlash of same-sex “marriage” against the Catholic Church in Massachusetts.

“Calling [homosexual relationships] marriage creates a whole host of problems for families, for the law, for the practice of religion, for education,” he said.
