“I don’t think it hurts my faith if you or anyone else questions it…you want it to be questioned because then you dig deeper…” ~ Huckabee.

There’s no question that religion based on compassion is a powerful force for good. There’s also no question that religion tends to exacerbate our tribalism tendencies. A thoughtful, open-minded conversation led by Huckabee with Maher—in which the two seem to be thinking of two very different things when they say ‘religion.’
