Yesterday, Mike Huckabee tweeted an endorsement of his presidential candidacy from pastor Steven Andrew, which Andrew had posted on Christian News Wire:
Thank you Christian Newswire! “5 Reasons Why Mike Huckabee is #1 for Traditional Marriage” https://t.co/703F6hN6zH #ImWithHuck #IACaucus
— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) January 27, 2016
While Huckabee thanked Christian News Wire, which just posts press releases from different groups and activists, the statement actually came from Andrew.
In his press release, titled “5 Reasons Why Mike Huckabee is #1 for Traditional Marriage,” Andrew warned that “Christians could be jailed with Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. The reason is they think same-sex marriage is law.”
“We know the founders made homosexual sin illegal so God would bless the USA,” he continued. “They would agree with Huckabee and no one else.”
Last year, Andrew suggested that God was supporting Huckabee’s campaign, explaining that “voting for Huckabee will bring God’s economic recovery and protection, since God rewards obedience.” He claimed in 2012 that God was backing Rick Santorum because President Obama and Mitt Romney worship “demons,” elaborating in a “God’s State of the Union” address that he delivered last year that Obama wants “to follow Satan” by “forcing people to have death panels” and promoting “homosexual sin.” Andrew even called for a boycott of Nike, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks because of their support for marriage equality, accusing the companies of “doing the devil’s work” and “leading people to sin and to possibly go to hell.”
He reacted to the Supreme Court’s “unAmerican and unconstitutional” decision to strike down bans on same-sex marriage by asserting that “the court is committing treason” and warning that “history shows that no homosexual societies remain because the Supreme Judge has destroyed them for rebellion.”
Andrew would make a great fit for Huckabee’s coalition of “Conservative Christian and family values leaders,” seeing that it already includes some of the country’s most radical anti-gay activists and End Times preachers .
