More Stuff Huck Knoweth Not

OK, we've gotten used to the fact that Mike Huckabee was unaware of the new National Intelligence Estimate hours after it was released.

No problem. Had he been president, and had he bombed Iran, he could have just shrugged his shoulders and said, "Gosh, no one told me."

Now he's sharing with us what he doesn't know about Mormonism:
Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, asks in an upcoming article, "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?"

The article, to be published in Sunday's New York Times Magazine, says Huckabee asked the question after saying he believes Mormonism is a religion but doesn't know much about it. His rival Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, is a member of the Mormon church, which is known officially as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (AP)

In the Wentworth Letter, Joseph Smith wrote as the first article of the Articles of Faith:

We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

It took me less than 30 seconds to find that reference, and as I look at it, I don't see Satan mentioned as a brother of Jesus.

Even a dumb attorney knows not to ask questions he doesn't know the answer to. You'd expect better from even a dumb presidential candidate.
