Mike Huckabee Says Inviting Homosexual Bishop, Pro-abortion Nun, and Transgender Activist to White House to Welcome Pope Francis is ‘Anti-Christian’

President Obama is taking some heat over who’s been invited to attend Pope Francis’ large arrival ceremony at the White House this Wednesday. The list includes the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, an pro-abortion nun and a transgender activist — guests the Vatican reportedly objected to, according to the Wall Street Journal.

And the Obama administration also has critics on this side of the pond — the latest is presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. Here’s what he tweeted Monday:

Classless decision by @POTUS to transform @Pontifex visit into a politicized cattle call is an insult to millions of Catholics #PopeInUS
— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) September 21, 2015

.@POTUS show of disrespect for @Pontifex is a new low for an admin that will go down as most anti-Christian in American history #PopeInUS
— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) September 21, 2015

Why is it that @POTUS goes to extremes to accommodate Muslim terrorists but shows nothing but disdain for Christians? #PopeInUS
— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) September 21, 2015

White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded to the criticism Monday, saying “there is no theological test that was administered prior to giving out tickets to stand on the South Lawn Wednesday morning.”

An estimated 15,000 invitations have been issued for the event, which will take place on the South Lawn of the White House. The Obama administration issued some invitations itself but also partnered with faith organizations including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Archdiocese of Washington and Catholic Charities.
