It's official: Mike Huckabee has lost his mind

Posted By on Fri, Apr 24, 2015 at 10:14 AM

Mike Huckabee's plan for winning the Republican presidential nomination is to convince primary voters there's a holy war underway against Christians (who, incidentally, exercise near total dominance in all the blood-red states most susceptibe to this line of hooey).

That was already clear. The only question is whether Huckabee is brilliant or merely plumb loco in where he's taken his rhetoric before he has even announced.

“I think it’s fair to say that Christian convictions are under attack as never before,” Huckabee said during a conference call with pastors, Politico reported. “Not just in our lifetime, but ever before in the history of this great nation.

“We are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity," he added.

Really. Criminalization of Chrstianity.
