During a town-hall meeting in New Hampshire this morning, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took his “I tell the truth” mantra further than attendees had bargained for.  "I'm a Catholic, but I've used birth control,” he said.” And not just the rhythm method, OK?"

Politico reports the comments were intended to emphasize that everyone practices religion in their own way, after a man cited scripture to support ending war and protecting the environment. OK, then.
