On Fox News Wednesday, Newt Gingrich said he accepts President Obama's claim that he's a Christian, but accused the administration of kowtowing to Muslim interests over Christian ones.
"Let's accept he's a Christian in his own light. He went to a Christian church for over 20 years," said Gingrich in an interview with Greta Van Susteren. "Why is it he's more sensitive to radical Islamists who are killing young Americans than he is to the Catholic Church, to Baptists, to fundamentalists, to people who are pro-abortion — I mean, who are pro — who are pro-life?
The comments were provoked by questions over a report claiming Gingrich failed to correct a voter's suggestion that Obama was a Muslim. Gingrich called the story "stupid" and "baloney."
