Commenting on President Barack Obama's decision to include prominent homosexual and pro-abortion activists at a White House reception to honor Pope Francis, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said it was a "classless decision," a "new low" that further reveals the Obama administration "will go down as the most anti-Christian in American history."
“President Obama’s classless decision to transform Pope Francis’ visit to the White House into a politicized cattle call for gay and pro-abortion activists is an insult to millions of Catholics," Huckabee said on Monday, as reported in the Iowa Statesman.
"Why is it that Obama goes to extremes to accommodate Muslim terrorists but shows nothing but disdain for Christians?" he said. "This is a new low for an administration that will go down as the most anti-Christian in American history.”
Last Friday, Sept. 18, Huckabee also criticized the Obama administration for appointing an openly homosexual man, Eric Fanning, to be secretary of the Army.
“It’s clear President Obama is more interested in appeasing America’s homosexuals than honoring America’s heroes," said Huckabee. "Veterans' suicide is out-of-control and military readiness is dangerously low, yet Obama is so obsessed with pandering to liberal interest groups he’s nominated an openly gay civilian to run the Army."
"Homosexuality is not a job qualification," said Huckabee. "The U.S. military is designed to keep Americans safe and complete combat missions, not conduct social experiments.”
Also commenting on the White House's pro-gay, pro-abortion agenda, Catholic League President Bill Donohue said, “It is so fitting that the least friendly administration to religion in history would invite a collection of pro-abortion nuns, Catholic gay activists, assorted dissidents and religious rebels to attend Pope Francis' visit to the White House on September 23."
