Candidate Huckabee calls Islam "Perversion"

FEBRUARY 9, 2007 - Posted at 3:18 p.m. CST

 

NASHUA, NH - Former Governor Huckabee is making his first trip to New Hampshire as a candidate for the GOP presidential nomination.

Huckabee told business leaders at Daniel Webster College today that the country is at war with "a perversion of religion."

Huckabee says anything less than a resounding victory in Iraq and elsewhere would mean the end of U.S. culture.

Huckabee referred to the conflict as "World War Three."

He said, "Unlike any other world war we've ever fought, this one is one we cannot afford to lose."
