Huckabee: Christians Shouldn't Join The Military Till Obama Leaves Office

If you're debating whether or not to join the military, Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) is urging you to wait until President Barack Obama leaves office because his administration has an "open hostility toward the Christian faith."

Huckabee was asked about a Washington Times report stating that Christians are leaving the military due to a "hostile work environment."

He said that the Obama administration, “orders its chaplains to put its Bibles away, not to pray in Jesus' name, not to counsel people on the issues of sexual morality."

Huckabee went on to say, "when you have this attitude that is more about promoting gay marriage and gay rights in the military than it is about being able to protect religious liberty for those people of faith, it’s going to be hard to find people that are truly devoted people of faith and Christian believers and Orthodox Jews and others.”

He also addressed parents by saying “I’d wait a couple of years until we get a new commander in chief that will once again believe ‘one nation under God,’ and believe that people of faith should be a vital part of the process of not only governing this country, but defending this country."

In addition, Huckabee shared this week that he will announce whether or not he will launch a presidential campaign in Hope, Arkansas next month.
