Huckabee Puts His Unholy Cards On the Table?

He’s the anti-Mormon candidate?

WASHINGTON – Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, asks in an upcoming article, “Don’t Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?”

Te article, to be published in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, says Huckabee asked the question after saying he believes Mormonism is a religion but doesn’t know much about it. His rival Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, is a member of the Mormon church, which is known officially as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Remarkable.

What resonated the most with me when Romney gave his “Mormon” speech is that it was no Mormon speech at all. He sounded like an American in love with America, offended for Americans that there was serious consideration being given to whether or not being Mormon disqualifies one for the presidency. I haven’t read Huckabee’s piece, but what how is Mormon theology a place he should be going a few weeks before the first primary votes? As Romney might put it, he’s not running for pastor in chief.
