Stryper Endorsing Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich For President

After the news of Rage Against the Machine supporting Sarah Palin for President, more groups are starting to voice support for their candidates of choice.

Christian glam metal band Stryper has decided to throw its hat into the political ring early this year, as band front man Michael Sweet has announced he is officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for President in 2012. Sweet stated he wanted to publicly support Gingrich after hearing the former House speaker’s recent comments at Reverend Jon Hagee’s Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas.

"I have two grandchildren — Maggie is 11, Robert is 9," Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church. "I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American."

Explaining why he chose to endorse Gingrich over any other conservative candidate, Michael Sweet commented, "Our new album of secular covers called ‘The Covering’ really convicted us all and showed us that a house divided can’t stand, and that a servant cannot serve two masters. We’re done with any secular and we want to help get America on the right track again.

"We know that Newt will do everything he can to prevent B.O. from letting an atheist, secular, Islamic-run society from taking over America. We wanted to make sure to support a morally upstanding candidate who has never cheated on his wife or been divorced multiple times, so Newt is the man for us!"
