Screw Huckabee...

I really mean it this time.

Huckabee gave a speech at a Baptist convention. He's a Baptist preacher, so that is to be expected, so that is not why I'm pissed off.

No, it's what was passed out:
The other book was Mormonism Unmasked by R. Philip Roberts, who examines the beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Mormon-baiting continues. I guess he needs to do it - after all, his track record on granting real slimeballs parole could be a killer. Or how about his tax increases?

He's just like Tancredo, albeit rather than nativism, he seems to instead prefer turning a blind eye to anti-Mormon bigotry. I find it hard to believe his staff did not know what was being handed out to reporters.

I hope that he will address this. Because if not, then the GOP could face some serious trouble down the road. Evangelical Christians alone cannot make a majority. they need allies. If they piss off their allies, will they really have any sort of chance at enacting an agenda, or are they more interested in braying about how they make "principled stands" as they get their butts handed to them?

This is old, old news. They also divided up into missionary teams and went door-to-door throughout the Salt Lake valley, delivering DVDs that compared the beliefs of the Mormon cult to true Christianity.

I do find the title of Huckabee's first book fascinating, though: Character is the Issue: How People with Integrity Can Revolutionize America. Don't you wish his anti-Mormon supporters would reread it?

As a Catholic, I can tell this joke, so to anyone who gets offended, I say "lighten up, already!"

The Pope is doing, well, whatever it is that Popes do at 2:37 PM, when a cardinal comes into his office and says, "I have good news and bad news, your Holiness."

The Pope asks for the good news.

"Jesus Christ has returned to Earth."

The Pope says, "That's beyond good news, that's the best news ever! There cannot be any bad news!"

The cardinal says, "True, except that He's calling collect from Salt Lake City."
