Mike Huckabee Is His Own "Pastor-Problem"

Typical conservative/religious response to something they don't like - just claim that the subject or the person is attempting to kick Baby Jesus in the face:

In a posting on his website, Huckabee states:

I urge you to email or call your Senator and Congressman this weekend or first thing Monday and let him or her know that your are against the pork laden stimulus bill in Congress. Call every talk tadio program you can and speak out. Go to the blogosphere and urge action on the part of other citizens who are outraged as well.

Go to your computer or your phone. Do it now. Let your voice be heard. If you don't speak out, then you are saying it's okay for Congress to mis-spend money.

Email or call now. There is time to stop it.

Think Progress reports:

[T]his myth has been making the rounds in right-wing circles for about a week. Originally, the American Center for Law and Justice, a right-wing legal group formed by TV preacher Pat Robertson, said the stimulus bill includes a provision that would prohibit “religious groups and organizations from using” buildings on college campuses. […]

[T]he standard language in the bill simply blocks spending for on-campus buildings that are used primarily for religion (like a chapel, for example). This same language has been part of education spending bills for 46 years. It’s just the law, and it’s never been controversial.

The only think more dangerous than an uninformed politician, is an uninformed religious fanatic that is a politician.

Steve Benen at The Washington Monthly has more.
