MikeHuckabeeHuckabee was governor of Arkansas 1996-2007 and a 2008 Republican Presidential candidate during the primary election. As a Fox News host, Huckabee falsely claimed that Muslims believe "Jesus Christ and all the people who follow him are a bunch of infidels who should be essentially obliterated." Huckabee also referred to Islam as the "antithesis of the gospel of Christ." He also seemed to compare Muslim prayer being allowed in a church to the showing of pornographic films.
