I am happy for him, as a catholic myself I take a great deal of pride in my upbringing.

Respectfully and histroically, it is empircal, the one and true church is ours....

Why did he convert? For marital reasons? I remember hearing many years ago that he had married a Catholic woman, so it's my assumption that he was drawn to the faith through her...

But then again, I don't know much about Catholicism, so I am not one to speak on such matters! :-)

Comrade, yes his wife is Catholic much like Cherie Blair, Tony Blair's wife...

It's technically his 3rd wife I believe but it is her 1st marraige, hence the other two don't really count against Newt in terms of being able to fully carry out the sacraments. (communion, etc)
