Why is Newt Gingrich always winking? Either he has a muscle spasm or he is hiding a deep rooted manipulative and deceitful conscience. I always look to the bible for matters concerning truth and human decorum. Below is an excerpt from the internet with verses depicting the meaning of winking as defined in the Judeo-Christian bible, and used by Christian’s and alike for moral behavior.
"The act or habit of winking was evidently considered to be evil both in its motives and in its results. The idea of its facetiousness, prevalent in our day, is nowhere apparent in the Scriptures. It is mentioned frequently, but is always associated with sin, in the Old Testament especially in the sense of conceit, pride, and rebellion against God: "Why doth thine heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at, that thou turnest thy spirit against God" (Job 15:12,13 the King James Version). So also Ps 35:19: "Neither let them wink with the eye that hate roe without a cause." "A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with froward mouth. He winketh with his eyes," etc. (Prov 6:12,13 the King James Version). "He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow" (Prov 10:10)."
