Huckabee: ‘God’s Hand Created America, There is No Other Way to Explain U.S. History’

Mike Huckabee used his 10 minutes at the CPAC podium on Friday to preach about God, family values and the divine hand that created America and may one day destroy it if the nation does not bow down to “our God.”

“These are the things that I know, the former Arkansas governor and current talk show host told the audience. “I know there is a God and I know that this nation would not exist had he not been the midwife of its birth.”

He added that he also knew that the nation only continued to exist because of the providence of God’s hand and “if this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to forget us.”

Sticking closely to the family values script, the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination also stressed the ways the American people have gone astray from God, calling a nation that allows abortion, “no better than the Philistines,” and demanding, in a nod to Arizona SB1062, that when people of faith are being asked to limit their beliefs so it does not interfere with others then the government should be forced to scale back and “religious liberty should be unimpeded in this nation.”

The Baptist preacher and Fox News host further called for America to turn against the ‘politically correct’ talk of the people with megaphones and repent in order to avoid God’s fiery wrath upon America.

“There is no other way to explain our history other than by His hand of providence,” his said to the applause of the CPAC crowd.

He added that despite the fact that the nation finds itself in turmoil, most Americans know of the nation’s divinely-crafted roots.  “Deep down in our hearts” Huckabee preached on,”most Americans know this to be true.”
