Meet Michael Youssef, Gingrich's Divisive Faith Co-Chair

Michael Youssef, an Egyptian-born evangelical pastor, has endorsed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for president. The Gingrich campaign has announced that Youssef, head of an Atlanta megachurch, will be the National Co-Chair of its Faith Leaders Coalition. Youssef's divisive views include the belief that democracy is not possible in any Muslim-majority country, and he has said that "socialists and leftists" try to "present Islamists and Jihadists as peace lovers." Youssef also advances the idea that there is a war against Christianity in America, yet he directs a share of his vitriol toward other Christians, particularly Presbyterians and Episcopalians.
