I’m not Christian, but it sounds to me like Charles is being somewhat hypocritical himself. He’s making a pretty big leap to judgment himself, judging those he accuses of judging others.

Ole Chuck goes running back to the plantation. A liberal moonbat and hateful, judgmental bigot. He thinks the rodents will give him the nomination for AL Governor in 2014. I hope they do so we can crush him like a bug.

It’s coming, and Mike Huckabee is making sure it happens a heck of a lot sooner by bastardizing Christianity for political expediency.

By the time he runs AlaBAMA may be O BAMA land too. This liberal appeal is contagious.

He gets payed to play a game.

His playing days (and his final chance to win a championship ring) are long gone. Now Chuckie gets paid to analyze games and joke around.

He mentioned a few years back he was interested in running for governor of Alabama. Haven't heard him talk about it in a while though.

I don’t think much of him except, when on David Letterman he was talking about running for Governor of Alabama someday. He actually said something like “it’s not like you could mess up Alabama any more”. I thought that was pretty funny, but otherwise he’s an idiot.

“I’m sure Barkley isn’t gay, but he would probably love to have 3 or 4 sixteen-year-old wives.”

I remember once when he and Danny Ainge were playing together, he told Ainge how much he admired Ainge for being faithful to his wife, then said, “I wish I could be faithful to my wife and my girlfriend.”

That is a cruel and dishonest charge.

Obviously you haven't been following Huckabee's campaign. Hucklabee's statement about putting the word of God in the Constitution isn't any different than Muslims insisting on Sharia Law.

Do you honestly believe that all his remarks about Christianity and God, etc. don't have the MSM and liberals licking their chops? If not, then you are not living in reality.

Its bad enough to be a Christian and have the hate and lies spewed at you. But when a false preacher jumps up and uses his faith as a selling feature in a political campaign, ALL Christians pay for the tomfoolery.

There is a difference between living your faith, and pimping it.

Mike is a pimp.

Wow! That is simply horrible and cruel and dishonest. I’m sorry that Huckabee is not sufficiently ashamed of his faith in God for your taste. Your charges against him are completely false, without merit, and exceedingly cruel.

I most heartily agree with that statement!

I won’t be surprised it will start with the “false Christians” calling the real Christians, false. Satan loves slander.

Christians should not get upset when people bash them. You will be hated as Jesus was hated, because you won’t compromise your beliefs anymore. Christians know that God is still on the throne and will answer for their votes, especially when a candidate is a proven liar.

Rejoice when man condemns you. satan gets angry (no I’m not calling anyone on this forum satan) when Christians refuse to go with the flow and stand fast in the word.

Resist the temptation to strike back in anger when someone offends you. Bless those who hate you. Rejoice in the lord because you are God’s children. Pray and fast with all your heart and wait upon the lord to remove us from this earthly battle. You have read the end of the book and know that WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS.

Why don’t you go and read for yourself what Huckabee has said during his campaign.

The dems have the best spokespeople. Barkley couldn’t be the governor of a whore house. Another expert on Christianity. Notice how Christian hating Wolf Blintzen delighted in the broad, sweeping, bigoted, anti-Christian generalizations made by the great philosopher Charles Barkley. True people of faith beware and get active, persecution always follows this kind open, public bigotry. There is nothing as despicable and common as that man who bites the hand that freed him. The poor Christian missionaries who taught the savage to read and write and pray and the Christian abolitionists who gave life and limb to set the captives free have clearly died in vain. Liberalism is a hateful and dangerous mental disorder.

There’s a lot of truth in what you said. When I tell people I’m a conservative, they immediately start wanting to argue about the specifics Biblical scripture, as if that has anything to do with a small government philosophy.

And this expert, unbiased opinion came from a whoremonger like Charles Barkley.

The abortion movement, the adultery movement, the homosexual movement, the get-rid-of-God movement, the government forced liberal indoctrination movement, the soft on crime movement and the socialism movement are all liberal movements.

These have all been pushed down our throats by liberals.

What a knucklehead! Barkley also disses my Warriors every chance he gets. His schtick is getting old.

He hammers on the Phoenix Suns way more than anyone else. Even though he still lives in Phoenix, he still holds a grudge against the team because late in his career, they traded him ... OhMaGawd!!!!! Somebody in professional sports was traded to another team!! How rude, and well ... unprofessional!!

What a nimrod this clown is!

Why would anybody particularly care about what Charles Barkley has to say about politics?

Actually, I used to wake up every morning pondering just what Charles Barkley thinks about me.

I was deeply concerned about what his political position are

Now that I finally know, I can sleep much better now at at night knowing that a former loudmouth NBA jailbird "I am not a role model" has to say.

So if you don't want to live under Socialism, kill babies, and create a NEW definition of marriage, discarding the definition society has used for millenia, then sage Barkley says you are a "fake Christian".

Chuck has become so "open-minded" that his brains have fallen out.

If he calls conservatives “fake Christians” and says that they make him sick to his stomach, does that make him “judgemental” and “intolerant”??

Good luck with that governor’s race in Alabama, Chuck! Make sure that you spend lots and lots of your money on damage control. Fortunately, you’ve got 7 years to patch things up with those “fake Christians”.
