Would Jesus tell someone where to stick a pole?
The good reverend today, in a report from CNN: "Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told South Carolina voters Thursday that the government had no business making decisions over the Confederate flag. 'You don't like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag,' Huckabee said at a Myrtle Beach campaign event. 'In fact, if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell them what to do with the pole, that's what we'd do.'
"Later, in Florence, he repeated the remarks."
