Mike Huckabee talks to NewsMax at the Values Voter Summit:
NEWSMAX: A poll recently shows that a fifth of Americans aren't sure that President Obama is actually a Christian, even though he says he is, and as a man of the cloth, what do you think he's doing wrong in not, kind of, making it clear?
HUCKABEE: Well, it would be helpful if he would participate in things like the National Day of Prayer that all the other Presidents have participated in. He certainly was downtown to host a Ramadan dinner.
But you know, I'm not going to question his faith or whether he's a Christian or not, but it certainly would be helpful if he would show a little love to the people who are unapologetically Christian, and I think there's some things [like] being part of the National Day of Prayer that would go a long way toward that, and leading the example of attending worship.
He said one of his highest priorities when he got to Washington would be to find a church. I hope he's still mapping that out.
NEWSMAX: Do you think his stance at reaching out to Muslims is putting at risk his relations with the Christian community?
HUCKABEE: I don’t mind him reaching out to Muslims as long as he’s reaching out to them in the same way that he’s reaching out to Christians or people who are Jewish. But what I’ve seen is that he has chastised the Jewish people for wanting to have neighborhoods for their children to grow up in. He’s certainly not been overwhelmingly kind to Christians who have a real conscience issue with things like abortion.
