Newt Gingrich - Enemy of LGBT Rights

Funny how the fight for LGBT rights has become twisted by the right-wing into the fight for religious freedom.  Say what?  Yup on this interview Newt Gingrich, serial adulterer and possible GOP presidential candidate uses the twisted logic that not being able to discriminate against gays is limiting free speech?  Would anyone seriously make that argument against civil rights?  Of course not, it has no bearing.  you can speak about being a hateful bigot all you want, but when that speech becomes acts that deny LGBT people their rights, then it's no longer speech, it's discrimination.

Watch it and you will understand how dangerous this logic is.
