Huckabee Rejects Debates Over Obama's Faith
The Christian Post ^ | 02/25/2011 | Nathan Black

Posted on 02/25/2011 6:36:30 PM PST by FreeAtlanta

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee came out in defense of President Barack Obama and his professed Christian faith on Thursday.

During a press briefing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Huckabee criticized the debates over Obama's religion and birthplace as "useless" and "unnecessary."

"I know for some people that is an obsession but it's not with me," said the Southern Baptist.

With rare public appearances at churches on Sundays and a smaller percentage of Americans (34 percent, according to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life) who believe the president is a Christian, debate continues to loom over Obama's faith.

Weighing in on the debate, Huckabee stated, "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 to me is missing the point."posted using frpa

I take him at his word. I have no reason not to.

Mike Huckabee confesses his ignorance.

Seriously Mike, how much evidence do you need? Are you that big a sucker? I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I will sell you for less than a month of your Fox News salary.

Huck is a useless tool for the left. Anyone who professes Christianity and cannot tell that Rev Wright’s Church is an apostate and false is either ignorant nor a true believer themselves.

No, the Huckster has his own obsessions (at least lately):

- constantly criticizing those who dare question Hussein Obama's birthplace and/or religion.

- defending Michelle Obama's food hypocrisy and nanny state food police dream.

Which word was that? The slip when he spoke about his Islamic faith or when he claims to be a member of a Black Christian Church? /oxymoron

I think they want another interview with the slimy tape worm from Chicago/Hawaii/Indonesia/Connecticut/Kenya/Washington St./Canada/etc.

I am quickly getting my fill of Fox News. I am really sad to say that. I used to set all public televisions to Fox News when they were still just a fraction of CNN’s viewership.

We need a conservative cable news station.

I agree that only God sees into the heart of man, and HE is the only judge of Salvation...
But c'mon:

* The only legislation Mr. Obama was passionate about while he was in the Illinois legislature was supporting Abortion - early, late ... all kinds. Other than that, he sat on his hands and voted present.
* 20 year membership in a 'church' that could only be described as a den of blasphemy. The focus of this 'church' was on race - and not Christ (which focus on HIM would lead to repentance of our own sins and forgiveness of others)
* Support for the homosexual agenda.

All of the above shouts: 'Not a Christian'

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

The fruit I'm seeing from this guy is of the evil variety...

Huckabee Rejects Debates Over Obama's Faith,

Debating any politicians faith is a losing proposition and is totally unnecessary in the case of Obama.

"You shall know them by their fruits". This is what's important. I don't care if Obama went to church every week and studied the bible every night. It's his actions that condemn him. If he governed like Ronald Reagan, I wouldn't care if he was an atheist.

If they only knew how stupid they sound when talking about the ‘liar in chief’ by spouting the platitude “I take his word on that.” Obama has told so many different lies about his past he can not keep them straight. The same is true about his religion. He has described “my Muslim religion” only to be corrected by his interviewer. Hucakabee is just like all the other obfuscators. He needs to pack his bags for the slammer along with all the rest of the worthless types who are accessories to Obamas perjury.

I mostly agree with him, as a candidate, not diving in. But as a Christian, saying “I have no reason not to”? Doesn’t sound as if Huckabee recognizes Biblical faith as a worldview rather than a few isolated checked boxes.

For a preacher, HuckleChuckle shows why he wasn’t a good one or why he can never be President.

Where is the evidence of Zero’s Christianity?

When he said the inshallah sung atop the minaret at shutdown was the “most beautiful sound on earth”? When the inshallah is a call to faith in Allah as God and Mohammed, the pedophiole murderer nutcase as his prophet?

How does that square with the First Commandment, ya hillbilly?

And why did he bow to the King of Saudi Arabia? Could it be because the King of Saudi Arabia is the leader of his Muslim faith, akin to the Pope for Catholics?

What is Christian about Rev. Wright’s church? Take your time, Goober. I’ll wait.

For a preacher of the Gospel to not examine the evidence and then pronounce someone a Christian when there is no outward evidence,shows what a stalking horse this Arkansas poser really is.

Shame on him.

And people actually think HuckleChuckle is a conservative.

There’s no evidence for that either.

BTW Mike, thanks for John McCain being our candidate in ‘08. Your masters are real proud of ya.

3) does not qualify to be president?

Seriously Mike, how much evidence do you need? Are you that big a sucker? I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I will sell you for less than a month of your Fox News salary.

********

Huckabee: If you run for president, I want to see a copy of your long form birth certificate attached to your application in all 50 states---especially in Hawaii---so that it becomes part of the public record and we can examine it in detail, something that Obama won't let us do with his Hawaii long form birth certificate, because it probably doesn't exist.

Huckabee's laughable statement: He says that if there had been a problem with Obama's Hawaii long form birth certificate, HILLARY CLINTON'S presidential campaign would have found it.

My point is this: I don't trust Hillary very much. So for Huckabee to give Hillary's campaign credit for a very thorough, objective investigation of fellow democrat Obama is too funny for words.

And for Huckabee to even imply that Hillary's campaign would have released Obama's birth certificate information to the public---especially if the information was bad for Obama----because Hillary would have believed it to be her patriotic duty is, again, a laughable statement from Huckabee, a supposedly very experienced and shrewd politician.

McCain: And if Huckabee had inserted McCain into his statement instead of inserting Hillary, I would still label Huckabee's statement "laughable".

And yes, I wouldn't be surprised if the Obama campaign had some dirt on Hillary and her husband that it held in reserve to use against Hillary, if Hillary suddenly started to play hardball with Obama's long form birth certificate controversy.

And I wouldn't be surprised if the Obama camp quietly told Hillary about the dirt it had on her and Bill. Welcome to the often vicious world of American politics.

The reason there was not a howl from the Clinton camp was that both camps were directly being staged and supported by the Soros cabal. Hillary and Bill were told to keep quiet and be good troopers or else. I suspect that McCain’s political phoenex rise from the primary ashes was also at least a reflection of the Soros cabel’s (it is not all Soros in an international framework)effort and influence. Palin was the all american cover for the cabel.

Agree wholeheartedly.

"Fair and Balanced?" Not interested. If I ever want to know what the left is spewing, all I have to do is either

A. Call up any number of my friends and relatives and just hold the phone to my ear, or

B. Turn on the tube and punch in any random channel. I don't need Fox to report what's already out there ad nauseum.

If there were a "Conservative Channel," what would you call it?

In an interview Obama said that he is "of the Christian tradition" which sounds good to many but is totally different than saying he is a Christian. He next said that there are many roads that lead to the same destination. Which is a total denial of Christianity.

Obama appears to be, at best, what the Catholic sometimes call a C&E. That is a Christmas and Easter Christian. He has not records of baptism, a common trait among Christians. But as Huckaby says - “we will take him at his word”. That is becoming a common theme where the documented facts do not match the known truth with this administration.

We also do KNOW that Obama had 2 Muslim fathers and we do know he was registered as a Muslim in primary schools in Indonesia. We know he has been trained that there are 57 states (57 Muslim states), he can quote the Quran verbatim without looking, he read passages from the Quran in perfect speech. So yes - he was formal trained in Islamic ways. Of that there is no doubt. But given the almost crazy situation as a child it is hard to call out the ‘Muslim card’ as an issue as an adult.

The more damning issue is the outright lying when the ‘Obama was a Muslim’ hit the media and blogs in 2007. Gibbs lied. The press lied. Just so many lies on the issue.

Gibbs January 2007 statement was a lie. The fact that Grandma Obama is still a practicing Muslim, the actual marriage date of Lolo Soetoro and Stanley Ann Dunham, the registration of Obama as a Muslim in the Indonesian School. All lied about or misrepresented in the press and by this administration.

Instead of dealing with the issue open and honestly when it came up during the critical election cycle they covered it up, they lied, they shredded the facts. This tell us the character of this administration. It maybe this same failure face facts that hurts them in numerous areas of leadership for our country.
