Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, has had a hard time believing that President Barrack Obama calls himself a Christian. According to him, it is all an act and Obama is just playing the part. He cleared up his remark by saying that what religion an individual practices is not his concern, but his concern is about the legitimacy of their faith and how it influences the policy changes.
He went on to attack President Obama’s false portrayal of being a Christian. What unnerved the presidential nominee the most was the president’s audacity to fill up a room with people who oppose everything the Pope stands for. “I think there’s something very unseemly about that,” he said.
He also said that Obama’s false pretences have negatively impacted people of the Christian faith, making it difficult for them to practice their religion. He wasn’t done yet. The former governor criticized the president for forcing religious groups such as the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay the cost of contraceptives. The nuns, who are embroiled in a lawsuit against the administration, got a visit from Pope Francis on Thursday.
Huckabee did not like the president’s approach to go after the Little Sister of Poor or the Green family at Hobby Lobby. Huckabee said that it is not very Christian-like to attack these groups as President Obama has done. If they do not want to provide their employees with contraceptives, the government should respect that and not force this upon them.
Finally, the reason for his grudge with President Obama was revealed. He brought up the subject of Kim Davis, the country clerk who refused to give out marriage licenses to same sex couples, outraging the gay community and its supporters for not upholding the court’s order.
He was appalled when theadministration chose not to stand up for Kim Davis, but could provide special considerations for the prisoners at Gitmo and Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood shooter. He said, “I just wonder, when is this president gonna show some love?” Sean Hannity of Fox News egged him on, reminding him of the “God Damn America” sermon given by Rev. Jeremiah Wright that the president attended in 2008.
This is what Huckabee had to say about that, “If my pastor said stuff like that, I’d go to a different church.” The technology savvy former governor and presidential hopeful also tweeted about the president not recognizing the efforts of his citizens and fellow Christians of helping out charitable causes globally.
He remarked, “Every now and then, I think it’d be nice to hear the president affirm Americans and specifically Christians in America who go across world helping the helpless.” However, his claims of President Obama not being a good enough Christian will not go unnoticed, as it is predicted that in the next presidential debate, the issue may come up.
You will see Mike Huckabee next at the Values Voter Summit held in Washington. He will be attending the summit with his fellow Republicans nominees: Ben Carson, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, Rick Santorum, and Ted Cruz.
