Huckabee: Any Time We Lose 'It's Because Christians Just Didn't Show Up and Vote'
Today, Mike Huckabee appeared on the Focus on the Family radio program to share his thoughts on the election results where he provided a glimpse into the Religious Right's worldview when he explained that any time their agenda does not win at the polls, it is because Christians didn't vote:
I think there were a lot of Christian people who simply stayed home for reasons that I can't figure out. But I think every time we lose major elections or major issues like the same-sex marriage issue or the marijuana issue, it's because Christians just didn't show up and vote.
I lay the blame though at the feet of those who sit faithfully in church each Sunday, they probably heard their pastor talk about the importance of this election and how so much was on the line, and yet maybe because they just didn't want to bother with having to stand in line at an election polling place, they just didn't go vote. And we're going to pay dearly for that.
If I were Cardinal Dolan or any of the Catholic bishops or priests, I would certainly be very frustrated and discouraged and wonder why aren't they understanding that if they join a church and belong to it, why would they not respect its teachings as having validity. It's one thing to say "well, I can't agree with everything" although I'm not sure why you'd join a church if you dismiss it. But to be openly contemptuous of its teaching and doctrine, it's something I can't understand.
According to exit polls, 78% of the electorate identified themselves as Christian, but according to Huckabee, the fact that Mitt Romney lost can only be attributed to the fact that "Christians just didn't show up and vote."
This is perhaps the most concise illustration we have ever seen of the fact that the Religious Right is fundamentally incapable of comprehending that there are millions of people in this nation who consider themselves to be Christians but who do not share their extremist views or support their political agenda.
