Mike Huckabee: Vote Republican...or Burn In Hell

Mike Huckabee makes a pre-election push with a new ad claiming in his usual unsubtle Republican way, that if you vote the wrong way on Nov. 6 you're probably going to go to hell.

Mike Huckabee makes a pre-election push with a new ad claiming, in his usual unsubtle Republican way, that if you vote the wrong way on Nov. 6 you're probably going to go to hell.

Huckabee:

Many issues are at stake, but some issues are not negotiable: The right to life from conception to natural death. Marriage should be reinforced, not redefined. It is an egregious violation of our cherished principle of religious liberty for the government to force the Church to buy the kind of insurance that leads to the taking of innocent human life.

Your vote will affect the future and be recorded in eternity. Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire? This is Mike Huckabee asking you to join me November 6th and vote based on values that will stand the test of fire.

Actually, "the Church" is exempt from the contraception coverage mandate, which Huckabee says forces "the Church to buy the kind of insurance that leads to the taking of innocent human life." Not only that, but the hormonal birth control he's likely speaking of works by suppressing ovulation, not sperm.

So essentially, Mike Huckabee lied. As I recall that puts him at risk of eternal damnation, hell fire and all that jazz.
