Today in American Christianity: Newt Gingrich, two-time adulterer, received absolution from Bob Vander Plaats, chief executive of the FAMiLY Leader. “There’s been a sincere life change for Newt Gingrich,” he told a group of evangelicals in Iowa. Meanwhile, an interracial couple about to married were banned from a Kentucky church after performing a hymnal together. The church said “it does not ‘condone’ interracial marriage, and any interracial couples would not be received as members or allowed to participate in worship services. The only exception? Funerals.”
