“Christmas Message” From Huckabee?

I must confess, I did have to replay this many times in astonishment…..did he really say “what really matters is the celebration of the birth of Christ”? Was this a message only for Christians, or only a part of the United States? What happened to the rest of us? First the politicians want to destroy the constitution and then we are all to worship the “birth of Christ”. Personally, I though this holiday message was quite scary.

Could someone please confirm with me if they are hearing the same thing too? I think I’m starting to lose it here.

In an effort to stop watching the video repeatedly thinking that his message would change with each viewing, I have scrambled to Google to look up the religious composition of the United States. Here is data from the first site I found, ReligiousTolerance.org:

bulletDuring 2001-FEB to APR, the Graduate Center of the City University of New York conducted an American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS). It was a massive poll, questioning 50,281 American adults about their religious affiliations during 2001-FEB to APR. 2 They obtained some results that are noticeably different from the Pluralism Project’s data. The differences are mainly because they asked their poll subjects what religion they considered themselves to be, rather than what religion they were actually affiliated with. Results included:

bullet 76.5% of American adults are Christian (52% Protestant; 24.5% Catholic).
bullet 14.1% do not follow any organized religion; they are Agnostics, Atheists, Humanists, Secularists, or have no religious affiliation.
bullet 1.3% are Jewish.
bullet 0.5% are Muslim, followers of Islam.
bullet 0.5% are Buddhist.
bullet 0.4% are Hindu.
bullet 0.3% are Unitarian Universalist.
bullet 0.1% are Neopagan (Druids, Pagans, Wiccans, etc)
bullet There are many more small religions, each of whom are followed by fewer than 0.1% of American adults.

Does this message suggest that only the Christians are voting, or if after voting, the rest will have to leave if Huckabee is elected?

Scary guy.
