Christian Defense Coalition Calls for Apology from Governor Huckabee in Reference to Comments Regarding Senator Obama

by Staff
May 19, 2008

WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- The Christian Defense Coalition calls for Governor Huckabee to apologize for his thoughtless, insensitive and troubling remarks about Senator Obama.

At a National Rifle Association convention in Louisville today, CNN and Associated Press reported that Governor Huckabee quipped that a loud noise backstage was Senator Obama dodging a gunman.

Governor Huckabee's quote was, "That was Barak Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he's getting ready to speak. Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor."

The Coalition finds it reprehensible that a major and respected political figure like Governor Huckabee would make such a disturbing statement.

It is critical for Governor Huckabee, who is as a devoted person of faith, to apologize immediately to Senator Obama and ask for forgiveness.

This statement reinforces the public misconception that republicans are "mean spirited" and a angry party.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, "I have great respect for Governor Huckabee. That is why I was so stunned to read about his thoughtless and troubling remarks about Senator Obama. These comments were not humorous and funny but were disturbing and outrageous.

"There is no context one can talk about someone aiming a gun at Senator Obama and having it be anything but reprehensible. My hope and prayer is that Governor Huckabee will personally call Senator Obama to apologize and ask for his forgiveness.

"In a time when politics is getting nastier and more vicious, statements like this must be unequivocally condemned by all. Governor Huckabee's comments are even more offensive when it has been reported over the past several months that Senator Obama has received numerous death threats."
