Mike Huckabee in early 2015: Boycotts against anti-gay businesses are a form of “economic terrorism.”

Mike Huckabee now: Let’s boycott Frito-Lay and their gay chips!

In an email to Frito-Lay management, a copy of which was obtained by WND, Huckabee, who was targeted by Savage’s vitriol several years ago, says, “I hope that you will do some honest vetting about Dan Savage and his very hateful and vulgar comments toward Christians and his calls for violence and injury to people he disagrees with.

“It is beyond me to understand how a responsible corporation would think that partnering with someone who spews the vicious vitriol that Savage does would be worthy of your corporate contributions.”

“If it does represent the corporate values of Frito-Lay, then the Christian community needs to be made aware that Frito-Lay has decided to not seek their business.”

Because Rainbow Doritos hate America and protecting LGBT kids who get bullied is somehow anti-Christian.

Huckabee makes Rick Santorum sound like the sensible Christian theocrat.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
