Talking about the changing political landscape, former House speaker Newt Gingrich expressed concern today that religious Americans may soon face a “secular tyranny.”


“The great danger is that you’re going to see a real drive to outlaw and limit Christianity,” Gingrich said at a National Review breakfast briefing. “It’s okay to be Christian as long as you’re not really Christian. It’s a very serious problem.”


“You can’t actually have an adoption service that’s run by Catholics unless they’re willing to be not Catholic,” Gingrich remarked, alluding to the Catholic organizations that refuse to consider gay couples for adoptive parents and have had to close as a result.


“That should bother people,” Gingrich continued. “You’re now beginning to see a secular tyranny begin to set in that is very dangerous, and we need to have a national debate about it.”

Whether you agree or disagree that “religious Americans may soon face a ‘secular tyranny,’” your comments on the intersection of religious freedom and anti-discrimination law may be submitted to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights at publiccomments@usccr.gov. The deadline for submissions is April 21. Your comments will help inform the commission’s report on the subject.
