Mike Huckabee, Christian and Diane Sawyer
So here's my note for Diane Sawyer.
Ms. Sawyer although you want to tout how religiously diverse this country is and offer your shock that anyone would publicly identify themselves as christian, 90 percent of the country believes in God and 80 percent of the country identify themselves as christian. As the secular progressives, code words for AKA communists, what to try to strip our christian roots everyday, I applaud a person that is willing to stand up and say hey there I an Christian and it is the guiding principle of my life.
In a brief reminder of history, the new world was founded by Christians looking to escape persecution. This country's was fundamentally founded by Christians looking to escape the problems of the Catholic Church. It was Methodists, Lutherans and Quakers who founded this country and wrote the Declaration of Independence and Constitution which gives you the podiums for your outrage. They are not characters in the Davinci code, and a caricature on a oatmeal box. Oddly for a country who was founded to escape persecution we seem to want to forget that when we want to chide a Presidential candidate for identifying himself as one. Bet you were shocked at the latest Rasmussen pole that said 70 percent want to hear Merry Christmas not Happy Holidays.
In the end Ms. Sawyer the hand ringing that you were doing that Mr. Huckabee might offend someone is silly. He may offend 10 percent and frankly, that's odds i would take. The problem I see is the fact that you or any other person would even have an issue with someone running an add saying he is a Christian. If he said he was pro-choice or anti-gun he would of been a hero. But gasp, he's a Christian. What is this world coming to.
Bottom line, if you don't like don't vote for the guy. Shelve the outrage, his ad wasn't speaking to you anyway, or so it would seem.
And on a side note, good job Newt not answering her chiding remarks.
