Huckabee refuses to say if he’d extend his brand of ‘religious freedom’ to a Muslim

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota asked Huckabee about Charee Stanley, a Muslim flight attendant for ExpressJet who was recently fired for refusing to serve alcohol, citing her religious beliefs.

On the heels of an intense campaign defending Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, Mike Huckabee turned to CNN to make his case and once again showed how hypocritical his latest Christian crusade is.

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota asked Huckabee about Charee Stanley, a Muslim flight attendant for ExpressJet who was recently fired for refusing to serve alcohol, citing her religious beliefs.

“Historically we have made accommodations for people with religious convictions,” Huckabee said when asked if he’d extend his religious freedom convictions to a Muslim.

“You’ve seen it in Michigan where they spent $25,000 providing foot baths for Muslims students,” he said, also pointing out that the U.S. gave prayer mats to prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay prison, along with painting arrows on the ground directing them where to face when praying towards Mecca.

Not getting an answer, Camerota pressed him again, with Huckabee replying, “I think people try to make accommodations wherever they can.”

“Sometimes maybe it can’t be done, but in this case there was no attempt to make an accommodation to Kim Davis,” he added.

    Not in any way a surprise, Huckster refuses to commit to an answer whether he would support the flight attendant. He wants ‘religious freedom’ to serve only christians, and everyone else can piss off. Say it Mike, you know you want to!
    I have grown quite weary of the nonsense that SCOTUS ‘created’ a law. No, they didn’t All they did was make a decision that an existing law was unconstitutional, which is their job.
    I guarantee you, if he were elected (not a chance!), and there was a state law he didn’t like, and SCOTUS deemed it unconstitutional, he would be behind that decision with every ounce of his being.
    Oh how I wish I could reach through this monitor and bitchslap him so many times he’d think he was in a crowd.

    @emma – actually huckabee figured it out and got rich from his pandering. Many would say he is one of the best at what he does. Even if he is obviously an immoral and immature human. It is really disgusting that our society rewards the dregs.
