I have absolutely no moral authority to be asking this question, because:
1. I think people’s marriages are their own business
2. I’m an ex-Catholic
But what the heck? Newt Gingrich has converted to Catholicism, some say because his wife is Catholic and he wants to share her faith.
Where does that leave the status of former wives #1 and #2?
Is he now living in sin with #3, or does he have to get the first ones annulled? Will the exes cooperate? Does that affect the legitimacy of the children of the first marriage?
Or do converting politicians get a free pass? It’s all too esoteric for me, but a guy who makes a career out of telling us whose family is more valuable and what virtues we lack will have no trouble being sanctimonious. He can go to Mass with Tony Blair now, and maybe they’ll write a book about the Just War.
