Mike Huckabee claimed last weekend that America could become "great" again if Americans repent for abortion (video below).
Huckabee made his claims at an “All Lives Matter” event that was staged by conservative groups that are trying to co-opt the "Black Lives Matter" movement for their own pro-life movement, notes RightwingWatch.org.
Huckabee that claimed that the Founding Fathers, regardless of their personal choices (i.e. owning slaves), “clearly understood that there was a God to whom we will ultimately answer, and our laws need to reflect His.”
Huckabee later added:
I’m convinced that there is a great need in this country for us to address the folks who do lift the heavy things every day, who do sweat through their socks every day, who go to church each week, who do not buy in on the nonsense that we can kill 60 million more babies over the next 42 years and that God won’t richly judge us for it.
I’m convinced this country can get back on its feet, but it can’t do until it first gets on its knees and repents, and if we do that, we can become a great nation again.
According to a press release, the "All Lives Matter" event was presented by the Freedom's Journal Institute for the Study of Faith and Public Policy, World Congress of Families and the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society.
The press release added:
This conference is not limited to Black pro-lifers, but to everyone who believes that "all lives matter," and that advocacy of life affirming public policy has limitless possibilities for elevating everyone's standard of life.
