Huckabee Rips Obama’s ‘Classless’ and ‘Anti-Chrisitan’ LGBT Invites For Pope’s Reception

Mike Huckabee has joined the latest President Obama pile-on by saying that the White House’s invitation of a transgender activist and gay priest to Pope Francis‘s reception was blatantly “anti-Christian:”

The Supreme Pontiff’s visit to the capital tomorrow is already gathering significant attention, for the pope will be speaking before guests on the South Lawn, and will be the first pope to ever speak before Congress.

Huckabee’s statements follow those issued by the Vatican, Bill Donohue, and others about how the guest list includes people whose views do not fall in line with the traditional beliefs of the Church. Josh Earnest declined to respond directly when asked about Huckabee’s assertions, but said that Obama has no interest in injecting politics into the event.

Just two days ago Huckabee went after Obama for nominating an openly gay man to be Army Secretary, saying that “President Obama is more interested in appeasing America’s homosexuals than honoring America’s heroes.”
