Former House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich believes that there’s a “radical and anti-American … assault on religious liberty” afoot, and he’s taking it to task in a new video course titled “Defending America.”
In a preview clip from a portion of the course that focuses on defending faith, Gingrich discusses America’s rich faith history — one that is rooted in feverishly defending religious liberty.
“Walk around our national monuments and realize how, again and again, Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln … we’re reminded the relationship they had to God,” Gingrich proclaims in the clip. “The belief they had that America was a country in which God mattered and in which belief in God was central.”
He also went on to decry the vicious and intense assault on religion that he sees coming from some forces on the political left. Referencing the ongoing debate over the rights of Christian bakers and photographers to decline services if they feel certain jobs — such as same-sex marriage ceremonies — infringe on their personal faith, Gingrich warned of a dire situation here at home.
“The forces of intolerance are prepared to use the power of the government to punish you unless you do what they want.”

Gingrich’s course, titled, “Defending America,” will tackle a variety of subjects, including the U.S. Constitution, making the case, among other points, that faith has always been central to America’s identity.
The six-part series will be comprised of lessons taught by Gingrich on the “most critical issues facing our nation.” Watch the trailer for the course below:
Gingrich, who partnered with Red Seat Ventures on the launch of the online course, said that he’s hopeful the course will help equip Americans with “the truth.” Find out more about “Defending America” here (promo code FREEDOM allows you to save 20 percent off the cost of the course through Thursday).
