Kuo on Huckabee

Evangelical writer David Kuo:
I like Mike Huckabee the politician. He's affable, funny, positive, and has a broad definition of what it means to be a conservative. He thinks, for instance, it is sound policy to ensure that poor children are insured. He would never have vetoed SCHIP legislation that expanded health care coverage for lower-income children. He doesn't think cutting taxes is the sine qua non of leadership. And he doesn't think illegal immigrants are the root of all evil - something several other Republican presidential candidates apparently believe. He cares about the poor.

But I am ever more concerned about Mike Huckabee the pastor. The hotter he gets, the more explicitly he wraps his candidacy in his Christian faith and the more he recruits other Christian pastors to hop aboard his political train. All the while his theology gets shoddier and shoddier.
