Pandering to teabagger Absolutism – ‘Mike Huckabee Says Obama May Be Lying About His Support For Gay Marriage’

Huckabee1

Two points.

Since we are NOT a ‘Christian Nation’, the issue of what the Bible says is irrelevant.

Faith is one’s individual belief not a Nations legislation.

Two – When you Google ‘Jesus never said anything about homosexuality’ you get hundreds of responses from well-intentioned religious sites saying that Jesus never said he was against rape or incest or hundreds of other issues.

But what did Jesus say about the poor?

Luke 14:12-14
“”When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

So Mikey, When Republican vote to cut food stamps by almost $40 BILLION dollars where is your anger?

Or is your anger only towards what YOU perceive as ‘sins’ and cutting food stamps is not a ‘sin’ to you?

“[W]hen we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated,” Obama told ABC News’ Robin Roberts. “And I think that’s what we try to impart to our kids and that’s what motivates me as president and I figure the most consistent I can be in being true to those precepts, the better I’ll be as a as a dad and a husband and hopefully the better I’ll be as president.”

‘Mike Huckabee questioned President Obama’s support for marriage equality during an appearance on Fox News on Friday, suggesting that Obama was not genuine in his belief that gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry’.

‘Describing his own opposition to equal marriage rights, Huckabee explained, “The position that I hold is the position that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden held in 2008. Barack Obama held it until 2012.” “And my question that I would love to pose to the president is this: Mr. President, please explain that when you said in 2008 at the Saddleback Church forum that you stood for traditional marriage and you did so because you were a Christian and because it’s what the Bible taught, please answer: Were you lying then, are you lying now, or did the Bible get rewritten?”
