Mucky Hucky Steps in Yucky

Hat tip- Pete Republic

Conservative Christians, if you were not paying attention before now, perhaps this would be a good time to start.

Too many conservative Christians have bought into Mike Huckabee because he was a former pastor and he spends his time on the campaign trail talking about values.

Apparently Huckabee is willing to overlook his values for a big paycheck.

From the Politico-
Mike Huckabee last year accepted $52,000 in speaking fees from a biotech giant that wants to research human embryonic stem cells, a nonprofit working to expand access to the morning after pill and a group pushing to study whether tightening gun control laws will reduce violence.
This is horrible. The very idea of accepting $52,000 from groups that do not support a conservative message is beyond the pale.

It does not matter what he says at these events, what matters is accepting the money.

Imagine the reaction from the left if Hillary accepted money from a pro-life group. If Pro-Life Wisconsin offered Hillary $25,000 to speak at one of their engagements and she accepted, some of the lefties heads would burst into flames.

When Mike Huckabee was offered these speaking engagements, he was offered a moral choice.

In the eyes of most conservative Christians, Mike Huckabee chose wrong.
