At a speech at the National Press Club earlier today, Mike Huckabee, the former presidential candidate and Baptist minister, told his fellow conservatives to stop questioning Obama’s Christian faith.
Here is a snippet from the CNN report:
During a speech at the National Press Club Thursday, Huckabee said it’s time for some conservatives to quit questioning the president’s Christian faith and added he thinks Obama is a role model for the “primacy of the American family.”
“He has personally articulated, not once but numerous times, of his Christian faith. I take him at his word. I have no reason not to. For us to continue to dwell on that is missing the point. I have no disagreement with President Obama as a human being. In fact, I will go so far to say one of the things I respect very much is the role model that he has served as a husband and father,” the conservative Republican said during the midday speech in Washington, DC.
“I think he has been an exemplary husband to his wife and an extraordinary father to his daughters,” he continued. “Frankly, America needs a good role model like that and how can I on one hand argue for the primacy of the American family and not recognize that in his own personal life style he has given us an excellent example of a person who has his priorities straight in marking out time for his wife and raising his daughters in a disciplinary environment in which he recognizes that he the parent is responsible for the atmosphere in which they are raised. And I commend him and salute him for that.”
Huckabee’s words are similar to that of conservative radio talk-show host Michael Medved, who recently told his fellow conservatives to stop their unfair attacks on the president.
But Huckabee also criticized Obama’s decision to order the Justice Department to stop defending the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, which “defines marriage for federal purposes as only between a man and a woman.”
Our Founding Truth says
Huck is a good guy, however he is ignorant about Obama as well as how to enforce justice.
Here is what I would ask Huck:
“If I denied inerrancy (I Tim 2:5), the Tri-Unity of the Godhead, Vicarious Blood Atonement, etc, am I a Christian?”
