“Thou Shalt Not Lie”
Exodus 20:16 “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.” KJV
Former Arkansas Governor, Southern Baptist minister, and potential 2012 Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee recently fueled the “birther” lies that President Obama was not born in the United States, and is ineligible to be President. In an interview with New York radio station WOR, Huckabee said “One thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, (is) very different than the average American,” pointing to Obama’s decision in 2009 to return a bust of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He failed to note that the bust was only on loan to the United States, sent to former President Bush by UK Prime Minister Tony Blair after the 9/11 attacks, and was replaced by President Obama with one of Abraham Lincoln.
Barack Obama did not visit Kenya until he was 26 years old, and only visited his sister there for one month.
