The New York Times Sunday Magazine has a large article about Newt Gingrich. One tasty little tidbit, amidst all the rehashing of his political life, is that he will soon convert to Catholicism. It’s waaaaay down the page.
He is a baptised Baptist, having been baptised in New Orleans at St. Charles Ave. Baptist Church (a church I know well!) in 1994.
This is not new-I googled it and found an announcement Nov 19, 2008. His entry into our faith will be Apr 12, 2009.
