Huckabee Rails Against Obama for Pretending to Be THIS
Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee blasted the President’s treatment of Pope Francis during his visit, accusing Obama of inviting a “bunch of people who are at odds with the Catholic Church policy” to meet with him.
As The Daily Signal reported last week, Obama invited a whole host of people with anti-Catholic views, including Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Anglican bishop who’s now a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a think-tank with ties to the Democratic Party, and Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of the Catholic social justice lobby Network, and a leader of the ‘Nuns on the Bus’ advocacy tours which helped promote the President’s anti-Catholic health care plan.
During an interview with NewsMax TV, Huckabee stated that his concerns about Obama’s treatment of Pope Francis are so heightened, that he has to assume the President is “pretending” to be Christian.
Mike Huckabee suggested President Barack Obama “pretends to be” a Christian in knocking the President’s handling of Pope Francis’ first visit to the U.S.
When asked on Newsmax TV’s “The Hard Line” on Tuesday about Ben Carson’s comments that a Muslim should not be president of the United States, the former Arkansas governor began by saying there is no religious test for public office, but then shifted to a comment about Obama.
Huckabee also claimed Obama’s choice of guests was a “classless decision,” a “new low” that shows the administration “will go down as the most anti-Christian in American history.”

Ed Berliner: I know that you’re a man very deep in your faith. Dr. Ben Carson also very deep in his faith. And he made the comments about a Muslim possibly becoming president. Do you disagree, agree with him, or do you think he went to far?
Mike Huckabee: Well, it’s not whether I agree or disagree, now here’s the point. There is no religious test for a person to hold public office in America. I’m less concerned about what faith a person has, I’m more concerned about the authenticity of their faith and how that plays out in their policies. I’m also concerned about a guy that believes he’s a Christian and pretends to be and then says he is, but then does things that makes it very difficult for people to practice their Christian faith. I’m disappointed if a person says, ‘I’m a Christian,’ but you invite the Pope into your home and then you invite a whole bunch of people who are at odds with the Catholic Church policy. I think there’s something very unseemly about that.
Is Obama pretending to be a Christian?
