Huckabee: Anyone Who Thinks This Is Still a Christian Nation Is Smoking Something
After Rick Santorum was booed during a campaign stop in New Hampshire because of his stand on social issues, particularly gay marriage, Mike Huckabee joined Your World to provide some perspective.
Of the booing, Huckabee said that it’s all part of the political process and a reflection of where America currently stands. He said, “If you take a strong Orthodox Christian stand, you have to understand we are in a post-Christian America. It’s painful to say that, but anyone who thinks this is a Christian nation anymore is smoking something and it’s probably not legal.”
Huckabee went onto say, “For the past 20 years, we’ve clearly drifted away from what I would consider Leave It to Beaver to Beavis and Butthead. We’ve gone from Father Knows Best to Father Knows Nothing.”
When asked whether the boos might help Santorum in that they rally the base, Huckabee said, “The truth is the people who were booing Rick Santorum weren’t going to vote for Rick Santorum anyway.”
