Huckabee: 'We Are Moving Rapidly Toward the Criminalization of Christianity'

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The persecution of Christians because of their moral opposition to homosexual behavior and so-called gay marriage is on the rise in America, to the point where "Christian convictions are under attack as never before" and "we are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity," said former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is also an ordained Southern Baptist minister.

During an Apr. 23 conference call with conservative pastors arranged by the Family Research Council (FRC), Gov. Huckabee and FRC President Tony Perkins talked about persecution of Christians in the U.S. military, in the business world, and how homosexuality as a "civil right" and same-sex marriage are affecting the social and legal climate.

"I think it's fair to say that Christian convictions are under attack as never before, not just in our lifetime, but never before in the history of this great republic," said Huckabee, who was governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007.

"We are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity – where it's not simply going to be that a church's tax-exempt status is threatened," he said. "But, more importantly, where criminal charges for a person who defies a new government norm, a new legal norm and that is a homosexual orientation becomes a protected class." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/huckabee-we-are-moving-rapidly-toward-criminalization-christianity" type="iframe" hyperlink="CNS News"]
