During Saturday night's Republican presidential debate, candidates spoke out about the Obama administration's hostility toward religious freedoms, according to CBN News. Texas Gov. Rick Perry said the administration's policies signified a "war on religion," citing the decision to withhold funding from a Catholic charity for victims of sex trafficking because of the organization's stance on abortion. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned discrimination against agencies that opposed gay marriage. "There's a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side," Gingrich said. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney agreed, saying, "As you can tell, the people in this room feel that Speaker Gingrich is absolutely right and I do too."
