Newt Gingrich values religion above morality and knowledge.

, “the notion that you are endowed by your creator sets a certain boundary of what we mean by America.” Gingrich said that Americans should value religion first, above morality and knowledge

Read the rest in the link on the right.

Now I don't know about anyone else but I value morality top and knowledge pretty high up on my priorities. With morality comes fairness, respect and even love for other people. What does Newt Gingrich pray for? It cannot be for the well-being for others for that would involve compassion and without a sense of morality there cannot be compassion. 
When he prays does he not ask for wisdom to do the right thing? Wisdom requires the ability to take in knowledge and learn from it. Knowledge is at the basis of makes us humans. We seek knowledge to progress in our lives, to find cures for terrible diseases, to help the sick and dying and here morality and knowledge share a common goal. To do what is right, to be as one and this can be acheived without the help of a god if we value morality and knowledge above religion.
