Huckabee Rallies Pastors to Support Akin, Rebukes GOP

Tampa, Florida (CNN) – Mike Huckabee participated in a conference call Friday night with hundreds of Baptist pastors and Christian talk radio hosts in Missouri that was organized to coordinate a robust defense of Rep.

    Thank God there are courageous men like Huckabee and the others who will stand by Mr. Akin. I don’t understand what is wrong with saying legitimate rape or stating the truth that stress helps thwart conception, which would be the state of any women experiencing the horror of rape. Are people forgetting the Roe v. Wade rape case that brought about the evil of the present day holocaust was not a legitimate rape, but a lie? Yes, “Roe” wasn’t raped. I’m praying for Akin, honor God and He will honor you!
