In 1998, then-Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee spoke at the National Pastors’ Conference, explaining why he entered into politics:

hackds.jpgI didn’t get into politics because I thought government had a better answer. I got into politics because I knew government didn’t have the real answers, that the real answers lie in accepting Jesus Christ into our lives. [...]

I hope we answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ.

In the past, Huckabee has also claimed that God supports Republicans. McCain, similarly, has claimed that “the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation.”

UPDATE: Mother Jones has “contacted the Huckabee campaign and asked if it would help make his previous sermons available, the campaign replied in a one-sentence email that it had received multiple requests for such material and was ‘not able to accommodate’ them.”

Digg It!
