Huckabee draws heat for anti-Islam remarks
by Bob Allen
Baptist preacher and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has landed in hot water for comments critical of Islam.
The former Arkansas governor and potential 2012 presidential hopeful criticized two Protestant churches that opened their doors to Muslims in an interview on Fox and Friends. The churches allowed Muslims to worship in their facilities when mosques in the area were too small or under construction.
"As much as I respect the autonomy of each local church, you just wonder, what are they thinking?" Huckabee said. "If the purpose of a church is to push forward the gospel of Jesus Christ, and then you have a Muslim group that says that Jesus Christ and all the people that follow him are a bunch of infidels who should be essentially obliterated, I have a hard time understanding that."
