On Hannity Huckabee admits he flipped on Cuba because he's running for president.

Then this--HotAir:
1998 statement signed by Huck affirmed: “A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband”
And how about this one, what a nice, tolerant guy, just the kind of person you want in the White House. Time:
Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, asks in an upcoming article, ''Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?''

The article, to be published in Sunday's New York Times Magazine, says Huckabee asked the question after saying he believes Mormonism is a religion but doesn't know much about it. His rival Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, is a member of the Mormon church, which is known officially as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The authoritative Encyclopedia of Mormonism, published in 1992, does not refer to Jesus and Satan as brothers. It speaks of Jesus as the son of God and of Satan as a fallen angel, which is a Biblical account.

A spokeswoman for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said Huckabee's question is usually raised by those who wish to smear the Mormon faith rather than clarify doctrine.

''We believe, as other Christians believe and as Paul wrote, that God is the father of all,'' said the spokeswoman, Kim Farah. ''That means that all beings were created by God and are his spirit children. Christ, on the other hand, was the only begotten in the flesh and we worship him as the son of God and the savior of mankind. Satan is the exact opposite of who Christ is and what he stands for.'

Romney did not respond to a request for comment.

Earlier this month in Iowa, Huckabee wouldn't say whether he thought Mormonism — rival Romney's religion — was a cult.

''I'm just not going to go off into evaluating other people's doctrines and faiths. I think that is absolutely not a role for a president,'' the former Arkansas governor said.

Well, he just flipped on that too. Mike Huckabee is pure poison to Republicans. And he has no idea how damaging this is. In an interview with the NY Times magazine!

He wants to smear Romney, but with talk like this he gives all people of faith a bad name. And sets us up for a horrendous loss in the fall. He's a fan of big government, that's why he switched to politics. And he's manipulating faith in an unforgivable, crassly ambitious, mean-spirited way.

It's Huckabee agony.

Okay, this definitely is a low blow, and it teaches us even more about Mike Huckabee. That 'question' was obviously a subtle attack, by trying point out how ridiculous some of their beliefs are.

What angers me even more, is that after the subtly bigoted comment, he claims to know very little about the LDS Religion. You gotta be kidding me?!

He went to a Baptist Theological Seminary, then was the pastor of several Southern Baptist churches in Arkansas. Having been through the south, every Southern Baptist knows all about Mormon Doctrine, mainly for defense and attacking purposes against the LDS missionaries' proselyting.

And you're telling me that Huck doesn't know much about the LDS faith as a Southern Baptist Pastor? He could teach a whole class it! He was saying that to soften up his bigoted comment.

However, to his defense, the spokeswoman immediately says the Encyclopedia of Mormonism does not refer to Jesus and Satan as brothers. Sure, but GOSPEL PRINCIPLES does, which is more authoritarian than the Encyclopedia of Mormonism. She doesn't need to dance around the issue. Mormons believe that Lucifer was a spirit son of God, and that Jesus was also a spirit son of God. They were brothers - DO NOT dance around the issue, but defend the faith.

Gospel Principles States their brothers:

We needed a Savior to pay for our sins and teach us how to return to our Heavenly Father. Our Father said, “Whom shall I send?” (Abraham 3:27). Two of our brothers offered to help. Our oldest brother, Jesus Christ, who was then called Jehovah, said, “Here am I, send me” (Abraham 3:27)…

Satan, who was called Lucifer, also came, saying, “Behold, here am I, send me, I will be thy son, and I will redeem all mankind, that one soul shall not be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor” (Moses 4:1).,4945,11-1-13-6,00.html

And yes, I am an LDS Returned Missionary, still very much active in defending our sacred teachings.

Anne is mistaken on this and other issues. Huckabee is not a big "tax and spend" guy. All you have to do is look at his record. I'm aware that many prefer to look at negative sites and hit pieces taken out of context. Is this fair? No. I'll post one link which gives context to negative comments I've seen.

The most hypocritical assertion and blatant lie in Huck's statements in the interview is that he doesn't know much about the Mormon religion. The Southern Baptist Convention writes article after article on the viles of the Mormon faith and its preachers are constantly warning their followers of fallacies of Mormon doctrine. In fact, the SBC news outlet is dedicating an entire series to criticize various Mormon doctines as I write this. Huckabee knows a lot about Mormons (although what he knows is based on biased interpretation of Mormon beliefs) and then coyly trying to suggest that he doesn't, all the while throwing out a ridiculous question about a supposed Mormon belief.

He really is a piece of work.
