This is good: Mike Huckabee on Saturday suggested that every pastor in America send their sermons to the mayor of Houston.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said pastors from across the United States should send “thousands and thousands” of Bibles and sermons to the Houston mayor who demanded pastors turn over their sermons to the government due to their objection to an LGBT discrimination city ordinance.”I hope she gets thousands and thousands of sermons and Bibles,” Huckabee said on his Fox News show Saturday, referring to Mayor Annise D. Parker.”It ought to make you mad that the mayor thinks she can turn in her pastors. And so I got an idea,” Huckabee explained. “If she wants a sermon, here is my suggestion. I would like to ask every pastor in America, not only the ones in Houston, to send her your sermons and go ahead. Obviously she could use a few. And everybody watching the show ought to send her a Bible.”

As always, the best answer to bad speech is more speech!

    I think Huckabee is on to something here, a very good idea, inundate them with what it is they say the MUST have. This mayor deserves to be made a Constitutional example of in the extreme.

    I thought the ole’ Huckster was leaving the republicans if they didn’t start being more anti gay?

    Now this:

    Is where the government / courts have gone too far. While businesses doing business in states can not discriminate who they do or do not do business with based on race, religion, sexual orientation etc. the government IMO can not force a representative of a religion to perform a religious service.
