Newt Gingrich Devotional: Am I pretty?

Editor’s Note: Newt Gingrich is our guest devotional writer.

Focal Passage: 2 Samuel 14:25– “But in all Israel there was none to be so much praised as Absalom for his beauty: from the sole of his foot even to the crown of his head there was no blemish in him.”

Newt Gingrich DevotionalBeauty is only skin deep, and the Bible tells us that women especially should value their own inward beauty by nurturing gentle and quiet spirits. That’s why the new teen trend of posting “Am I Pretty?” videos on youtube is such a heartbreaking commentary on the kind of society created by Obama liberals and some rich fake-conservative Republican moderates.

Children are our future. To show solidarity with these troubled and fragile teens, I’m posting my own video and I hope all of you will join me:

“Hi I’m 68 and my name is Newt and I need y’all to tell me the truth. Am I pretty or ugly? Im only making this video because loads of people do it and im bored. Remember, my political career may hinge on your answer.”

  1. I miss the Wittenburg Door; loved it when I discovered it in the early 80s. It introduced me to people like Richard John Neuhaus, Juan Carlos Ortiz, Robert Farrar Capon, as well as to many much-needed laughs!

    Yeah, we all miss it. Still working on bringing it back. Glacial movement toward that goal. Thanks for your comment. (I need to get back to posting more frequently here– sheesh!)
