Interesting news. Does this mean he will repent from being a warmonger?

I wrote and then erased but still ponder if Gingrich will receive honors like Tony Blair who "cooked the books" to drum up support for the Iraq war; that is, to be invited by a Cardinal in New York to the annual Al Smith dinner to raise money for the poor. 900 billions spent on the war, 5 million homeless, a million killed, and the Cardinal raised 1 million for the homeless from the "cream of society". Is that what becoming "Catholic" got him? Shame!

Since Gingrich is married to a Catholic I imagine his prior marriages have already been addressed.

To be impolitic, which number wife? Have his prior marriages been annulled?

...How about one more soul for the Kingdom, huzzah! We are all sinners.
