The video below comes after the moderators of ABC's GOP debate started pushing questions focused on gay marriage, then Newt Gingrich pointed out that no one ever asks about the flip side of that particular issue.
I just want to raise the point about the news media bias. You don't hear the opposite question asked. Should the Catholic Church be forced to close its adoption services in Massachusetts because it won't accept gay couples? Which is exactly what the state has done. Should the Catholic Church be driven out of providing charitable services in the District of Columbia because it won't give in to secular bigotry? Should the Catholic Church find itself discriminated against by the Obama administration on key delivering of service because of the bias and bigotry of the administration? The bigotry question goes both ways, and there's a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side and none of it gets covered by the news media.
Later, Rick Perry also addressed what he refers to as Obama's "war on religion":
Shortly after Gingrich's attack on the media, Texas Gov. Rick Perry pivoted from a question about whether he would consider a third-party run to promise that if elected president he would end what he called 'this administration's war on religion.'
'When we see an administration that will not defend the Defense of Marriage Act, that gives their Justice Department clear instructions to go take the ministerial exception away from our churches where that's never happened before, when we see this administration not giving money to Catholic charities for sexually trafficked individuals because they don't agree with the Catholic church on abortion, that is a war against religion. And it's going to stop under a Perry administration.'
Speaking of liberal media bias, Matthew Boyle over at The Daily Caller highlights the problem George Stephanopoulos had during last night's debate, with fairness.
[Update] For those interested, Wapo provides the transcript from the whole Saturday night debate.
