J. Grant Swank, Jr.

Newt Gingrich is not what true moralists want in the Oval Office.

He is too smooth at double-talking and double-ethics.

He has a history of sexual antics while being married. How can one trust a person at his age with a total ethical turnaround, even when confessing his immorality to Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family.

Evangelicals who are deeply seasoned over years have come upon many complications in living with those professing Christ as Savior, Bible as moral guide and the Christian testimony as valid.

Evangelicals — including fundamentalists and pentecostals — have endured Jim and Tammy Bakker as well as Jimmy Swaggart. Devout, moralist Roman Catholics have endured molesting priests who posed as spiritually kind and holy.

Therefore, in 2007, biblical believers are no longer as quick to trust as they once were. The world is complex, especially the personalities within it.

Many turn to President George W. Bush as an example of a complicated person of Christian profession. Is he? Or isn’t it? Do we believe his words of biblical, evangelical content? Or do we consider them pandering to the evangelical block?

There are those who would swear atop a stack of Bibles that Mr. Bush is totally pure in his profession as Christian and his moral ethic.
There are others who express their suspicions, though regrettably.
