Huckabee Refuses to Give Opinion of Mormons
Former Baptist minister Michael Huckabee has risen to the top of the Iowa polls as a result of touting and flaunting his Christianity. He has done this to set himself apart from Mitt Romney, who is Mormon. Now that Huckabee is in the limelight, he refuses to talk about what brought him to the top, namely Mormonism.
Governor Huckabee was asked whether Mormonism is a cult? A simple 'No' would've sufficed, but Huckabee couldn't bring himself to utter those two letters. Instead, he went off on a tangent about how other people's faith is not a role a president should have. Of course, he has already shoved his beliefs out there for everyone else to evaluate.
A refusal to answer such a simple question is tantamount to a 'Yes' in my opinion. Could it be that Huckabee doesn't want to offer an opinion because he doesn't care for the Mormon religion and actually does think of it as a cult? It would follow the beliefs of many Christian evangelicals who plan to vote for him.
Mike Huckabee wants to win this election on religion. He sure can't run on his record, which shows a history of tax-hikes and support for illegal immigration. Those positions don't usually go over well with conservatives.
The former Arkansas Governor needs to answer this Mormon question if he wants to be President of the United States. Organized religion has divided this country for centuries. We don't need a leader that further divides us by refusing to address the issue.
