Mike Huckabee gets some Bible schooling on his lack of a beard

Posted By on Tue, Jul 21, 2015 at 1:50 PM


Mike Huckabee, on the campaign trail in Iowa, is confronted, very politely, by a questioner, Rod Webber, who challenged the candidate on how his campaign pronouncements square with Biblical encouragement to help the poor and not kill and — here comes Leviticus — why he shaves.

Webber reminded Huckabee that he is breaking Biblical law by shaving, quoting the Book of Leviticus: “You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard.”

“There’s more passages about shaving being a sin than there is about homosexuality,” Webber said.

PS — Says here that only Bill Clinton has appeared on "The Daily Show" more often than Mike Huckabee. One of Jon Stewart's few flaws was being snookered by the Huckster's shtick.
