Kenneth Copeland is claiming that Mike Huckabee supports him in his “holy war” against Senator Grassley and that that during a conversation with Huckabee about the investigation Huckabee literally screamed:
“Are you kidding me? Why should I stand with them and not stand with you? They’ve only got 11 percent approval rating.” And then he said, “Kenneth Copeland, I will stand with you.” He said, “You’re trying to get prosperity to the people and they’re trying to take it away from ‘em.” He said, “I will stand with you any time, anywhere, on any issue.” That settled that right there. I said, “Yeah, that’s my man! That’s my man, right there.”
I find it hard to believe that a Baptist, much less a Southern Baptist such as Huckabee, would support anyone preaching “prosperity” as it’s usually considered to be a corruption of “biblical” Christianity. So, either Copeland is lying (and I don’t think he is) or Huckabee is just another hypocrite who’ll say/do anything to get the support of the faith-heads.
Here’s the video of Copeland making the claim:
