While several candidates’ campaigns have tried to claim the support of the Almighty, perhaps no one has laid it out more clearly than Rev. Steven Andrew of USA Christian Ministries, who released a statement today titled “God: Mike Huckabee ‘A,’ Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton ‘F.’” And by God, he means Steven Andrew.
Andrew cited his group’s American Christian Voting Guide, which importantly notes, “A higher score means the greater God will bless the USA. Liberty, better jobs and God’s protection come from higher scores. Helping those with lower scores means more troubles from God’s judgment for disobeying the Holy Bible, as well as unjust laws against God.” The guide mentions Huckabee’s defense of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis as the reason why the former Arkansas governor came out on top of God’s list of candidates.
Huckabee may be the highest scoring current candidate, but he can’t compete with the Founding Fathers, to whom the guide gives an “A+” grade.
“Huckabee came from behind to win Iowa in 2008,” Andrew wrote in his statement today. “With Trump dropping in the Iowa polls, people will study the candidates further. I think they will see Huckabee is the most on God’s side, especially for Christian religious liberty. That means voting for Huckabee will bring God’s economic recovery and protection, since God rewards obedience.”
Andrew has previously claimed that “Starbucks hates God” and that “Starbucks, Nike, Amazon and others are doing the devil’s work” by backing gay marriage.
