Huckabee Slams Obama's Use of Scripture in Amnesty Speech

By    |   Friday, 21 November 2014 03:29 PM EST

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee blasted President Barack Obama for citing the Bible in his immigration speech Thursday, suggesting that his use of Scripture was little more than a cynical attempt to advance his political agenda.

Toward the end of his speech, Obama declared that "Scripture tells us, we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger."

"We were once strangers, too," he added.

Huckabee responded on his Facebook page that "it is interesting that Obama cites Scripture as the justification for him taking unilateral action on illegal immigrants" before taking a decidedly sarcastic tone, Mediaite noted.

"Funny how, for the first six years of his administration, even the two years when he had unstoppable majorities in both houses, Scripture did not compel immediate action. But two weeks after the final election he’ll have to deal with, suddenly, Scripture requires us to do this," the Fox News host and possible 2016 presidential candidate wrote.

Huckabee likened Obama’s push on immigration to his handling of homosexual marriage, adding that "his Biblical beliefs led him to oppose same-sex marriage as a candidate for election. Then, when he needed big donations from gay liberals for his re-election, the Bible suddenly got rewritten."
