Today In Christianity: Mike Huckabee Is A Big Fat Liar

Mike Huckabee is a Southern Baptist preacher who wants to be president—and I’ll let that whole Separation of Church and State thing lie there—who calls himself a ‘good’ Christian, a man of God. He’s also a big fat liar, who thinks because he couches his lies in Bible thumps, maybe you won’t notice. But we did …

Last week he spoke at a Little Rock, Arkansas event—“America from Ordinary to Extraordinary”—and started off comparing ISIS to the Nazis and then segued into the fight for same-sex marriage … Oh Mike.
“You have to lie to people, and when lies permeate our culture, it’s a dangerous, dangerous thing. If you are a believer and you believe old-fashioned things like the definition of life and the definition of marriage, it’s possible that the government will put you out of business as they have in numerous occasions like Elaine’s Photography. Out of business."
Then he tossed in the lie: he told the story of Sweet Cakes by Melissa out in Oregon, whose owners, Aaron and Melissa Klein, refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding, and he said that the Klein’s are "out of business" and "face jail time" and "$150,000 or more in fines, because they wanted to run their business as Christians."

Let’s break it down:” the Klein’s aren’t out of business, they are running their business out of their home., Yes, they do face fines for discrimination because, um, yeah, it’s against the law to discriminate based on sexual orientation, but they are not now, or never will be as a result of this issue, be facing jail times.

Who’s the liar now, Mike?

faux news, rush limbaugh, george w, dick cheney, etc. have based their careers on nothing but lies. and the sheeple believe.

those of us who are intelligent, progressive thinkers can see the lies and know the GOP is full of shit.

No conservative will ever argue anything honestly. They will never say "here's why I think that bakery should be allowed to discriminate without facing possible fines. . ." They go right to the lies "Oh, dear, they've been forced out of business, they're facing jail time, etc."
They know they can't win an argument on merit, so they always default to dishonesty.

The moment he opened his mouth and nazi's fell out, his whole argument disintegrated. Godwin's Law, its not just for internet threads, y'all.

Saints preserve us! If he gets any shriller his voice will disappear like a dog whistle - and won't that be a blessing?!
