Huckabee Talks Faith at CPAC: 'Gov't Should Scale Back, Not People of Faith'
Former Alabama Governor Mike Huckabee (R) spoke about faith at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference.
He said, "It's time for the government to scale back, not for people of faith to scale back. Religious liberty should be unimpeded in this nation."
This afternoon on Your World with Neil Cavuto, Huckabee discussed why it’s important to speak openly about social issues.
He told Cavuto, “It’s really about being honest with the people who are listening. And saying to them that our country is … not only made up of what is politically, militarily, economically. But it’s also what it is morally and spiritually.”
Huckabee said if we don’t understand the faith component, then “we’re kidding ourselves into believing that “America has no history.”
Recently, First Lady Michelle Obama praised ObamaCare volunteers for “doing God’s work.”
Cavuto asked, “So God’s on their side?”
Huckebee responded, “I never think God votes Democrat or Republican. Last time I checked, he’s not a registered voter in any state and he’s never signed up for a party. It’s, I think, an outrage to ever think that somehow we have captured God in our party.”
Faith wasn’t the only focus at CPAC for the former governor. He also covered the economy, the Ukraine crisis and Benghazi. “I don’t think conservatives ought to be handed a lexicon by the liberals and told you can’t say these things.”
Huckabee said it’s not about pandering, but expressing your sincere beliefs. “Here’s a fact: if 10 percent more of just evangelicals […] had voted in 2012 election for president, Mitt Romney would be president today.”
