Speaking at a “Faith, Family and Values” fundraiser yesterday for Statesville Christian School in North Carolina, Mike Huckabee praised the school for instilling Christian values, saying he wished that every leader in the world shared their Christian worldview:
Huckabee also said that when he grew up (in the town Hope, Ark., in the late 1950s and 1960s), folks were more open about their faith.
“We were not ashamed of Judeo-Christian heritage,” he said. “And schools and the community did everything they could to support it.”
He said that the kind of “biblical worldview” taught at SCS was in the direction of unmitigated equality.
“I’d love the world to be lead by people who have a biblical worldview,” he said.
“Wouldn’t it be an exciting thing to have leaders who believe all of us are equal?” he later asked …
Huckabee said Sunday that he has been asked many times if it is difficult to be a Christian and a politician/elected official.
“I always answer that actually it’s a lot easier to be a Christian,” he said. “I wake up every day knowing what I believe.”
