Huckabee advises evangelicals to double down

Posted By on Tue, Jun 11, 2013 at 10:05 AM


Former Gov. Mike Huckabee spoke last night at the 2013 Pastors' Conference in Houston on the eve of the Southern Baptist Convention's annual meeting.

Even with the creep of the big bad liberal-secular agenda fast approaching, Huck told them to stand their ground.

I think we need to recognize it may be time to quit worrying so much about the tax code and start thinking more about the truth of the living God, and if that means we give up our tax-exempt status, I choose freedom more than I choose a deduction. I never gave a dime to God solely because it was a tax decision.

Of course, most of the dimes he's been asking from his flock have been an unusual form of tithing: give the money to Huck Pac! Every day brings a new occasion for a Huckabee hustle.

More from Huckabee:

[Republicans] are saying we evangelicals need to dial it back. Well, I’ve got a news flash for the GOP. I plan to take my last ride in life on a white horse, not an elephant or a donkey. If any party goes another way, I stick with Jesus. I believe he is forever.

He also complained about the positive attention given to NBA player Jason Collins for coming out of the closet. “They proclaimed him a hero,” he said. “Where are the accolades for Tim Tebow who follows Jesus? He was told to shut up.”
