Mike Huckabee Is Right about Criminalizing Christianity

Mike Huckabee obviously spoke truth about our government and the homosexual agenda criminalizing Christianity.

If anything, Mike Huckabee has understated what is going on.

According to CNS News:

The persecution of Christians because of their moral opposition to homosexual behavior and so-called gay marriage is on the rise in America, to the point where “Christian convictions are under attack as never before” and “we are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity,” said former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is also an ordained Southern Baptist minister.

“I think it’s fair to say that Christian convictions are under attack as never before, not just in our lifetime, but never before in the history of this great republic,” said Huckabee, who was governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007.

“We are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity – where it’s not simply going to be that a church’s tax-exempt status is threatened,” he said.  “But, more importantly, where criminal charges for a person who defies a new government norm, a new legal norm and that is a homosexual orientation becomes a protected class.”

“I want to say that across the country there are numerous cases, whether it’s the chaplains in the military being told to put their Bibles away, to no longer pray in Jesus’ name,” said Huckabee.  “Not to counsel people who are in a homosexual lifestyle. Not to counsel them to try to seek assistance for that but rather to have affirmed that lifestyle as being normal and appropriate.”

My only quibble is that Huckabee really ought to be speaking in past tense. We have moved rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity. After all, if cake bakers are already being officially bankrupted for the heresy of disbelieving in same-sex marriage, then we already have a situation where Christianity has been declared criminal.
