The problem with Huck's question on Jesus & Devil being brothers is that the statement by itself out of context sounds negative & strange. A lot of the attacks on the Mormon church are technically true but are presented out of context and in a negative light.
This is why Huck's comment IS considered an attack on Romney's religion.

For example, I could make the statement: "Huckabee praises book that condones slavery". This would a very negative statement and would be considered an attack. However, it would be a completely true and accurate statement. Huckabee (as do I) believes in, praises and loves the Bible AND the Bible condones slavery. You take this statement out of context and present in a negative light and it makes all the difference. There are countless truths about the Bible, it's history and the history of Christianity that can be presented out of context and be made to sound very wrong and wierd. Nevertheless, they would technically be true and accurate.

Summary, the claim that Huckabee was attacking Romney's religion is a very fair statement.


Try this info on for size:
1. Mormons believe that God the Father once was a mortal man living on another planet and that he now has a wife in heaven and...Mr. & Mrs. God have celestial sex (what?)to produce spirit babies !
2. Mormons believe that if they are faithful to their religion, they too can become gods equal to God the Father.
3. Mormons believe that dark skin in a curse.
4. Mormons portray their religion as pro-family (like those nice commercials), yet they permit abortions in many circumstances.
5. Mormons redefine words to mask non-Christian, polytheistic doctrines as Christian.

"The campaign for the Republican presidential nomination should be about ideas that can move the country forward. It should not be about inciting discord over one another's religious beliefs."

A bit late for that. Inciting discord over religious beliefs is exactly what Republican politics has been about for the last eight years at least. You reap what you sow.


Typical pinhead reporter looking to redefine the truth to conform to his tabloid mentality.


I'm a Mormon and I'm not at all offended by what Huckabee said or asked. It's a simple fact that few people outside our church know a great deal about our doctrine. Then again, few go out of their way to find much out. Huckabee's was an innocent remark and I'm getting more an more frustrated with Romney trying to play the victim every time someone makes a comment that highlights ignorance of our beliefs. I like many of Romney's values; nevertheless, I'm disappointed by his unwillingness to just roll his eyes instead of calling foul every time.


Why should anyone be offended about a question on what one believes? The LDS do teach that Jesus and the Devil are brothers and that a choice was made towards which one of them should be sent to save the world.... Refer to LDS "Gospel Principles" pg's. 11, 17, 18.

Where is the offense?

Ask me a question about my Christian faith and I'll be happy to respond with the best answer that the Bible can provide me with.


Huckabee knew what he was doing, and he must take responsibility for his words, and his actions, if he is serious about leading the free world.
I wonder if Chuck Noris is embarassed by Huckabee? We all will be embarrassed if he is the nominee.
This may very well be the first real 'macaca' moment of the race.


Huckabee was correct that Mormons believe that Jesus and Satan are brothers! Check this out from the Official LDS Website:

"On first hearing, the doctrine that Lucifer and our Lord, Jesus Christ, are brothers may seem surprising to some—especially to those unacquainted with latter-day revelations. But both the scriptures and the prophets affirm that Jesus Christ and Lucifer are indeed offspring of our Heavenly Father and, therefore, spirit brothers."
