Former Arkansas Republican Governor Mike Huckabee has been busy lately, appearing on a Thursday episode of Outnumbered on Fox News, where he blamed the “perils of globalism” for exposing Americans to the novel coronavirus pandemic, and then writing an opinion piece about “the virus of sin” for Charisma News on the same day.
In a discussion with Outnumbered hosts Harris Faulkner, Melissa Francis, Fox News Business host Dagen McDowell, and contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier, Huckabee lauded President Donald Trump for criticizing the Chinese government over its inaccurate record-keeping regarding the deadly virus.
“They haven’t been a fair trading partner,” Huckabee said of the Chinese government. “They’ve not been honest. They’ve cheated. They violated the World Trade Organization. They’ve done everything in their power to try to game the system for their own advantage.”
In an opinion piece for Charisma News, Huckabee writes that “the virus of sin” is more dangerous than the coronavirus.
“I take this pandemic seriously and you should as well. But statistically, your risk of getting the virus is still remote and the risk of dying from it is minimal.”
Then he struck an ominous tone.
“But there is a virus that we hear almost nothing about these days, and it is absolutely going to touch you. In fact the death rate from it is 100 percent.”
“The virus of sin,” he wrote, is an “infection” that has lasted as long as human existence. “It’s a virus that we all have and are born with.”
“There is light in the midst of the darkness, and even if you avoid coronavirus, you need to take steps to protect yourself from an even more deadly virus, but one that already has a cure and a cure that costs you nothing but your willingness to accept it.”
