James Robison: God's Hit Man And Mike Huckabee's Mentor
In 1976, Mike Huckabee dropped out of seminary school so that he could go to work for James Robison:
In 1976, after college, Huckabee was enrolled at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Texas, when he came into contact with the televangelist James Robison. It was Robison who famously declared that he was “sick and tired of hearing about all of the radicals and the perverts and the liberals and the leftists and the Communists coming out of the closet,” and was ready “for God’s people to come out of the closet” and take back the nation. Despite Huckabee’s inclination toward a forgiving Christianity, Robison’s passion drew him in. He dropped out of seminary after one year to take a job as Robison’s director of communications.
Back in the early days of the Religious Right, Robison was a key player and one who, even today, admits that he made the likes of Jerry Falwell and Bob Jones seem downright liberal.
Robison eventually dropped out of the movement, but has made a reappearance over the last year or so, which explains why he was the featured speaker at last night's Watchmen on the Wall conference where he demonstrated how he got the nickname "God's Hit Man" thanks to his ability to "give 'em so much Hell nobody will ever want to go there":
