Who would Jesus Execute?Huckabee's answer is separation of church and state.
There was a fascinating exchange with Huckabee in the CNN debate last night that revealed his core value about applying Christian values to politics.
Cooper: I do have to though press the question, which -- the question was, from the viewer was? What would Jesus do? Would Jesus support the death penalty?
Huckabee: Jesus was too smart to ever run for public office, Anderson. That's what Jesus would do.
In other words... Huckabee believes that Jesus was not a politician and what Jesus said does not apply to public policy.
Notice, also, that his answer received applause.
