In Huckabee's earlier day the fact that a minister left the pulpit to be a politician was a step down. It is no longer viewed that way. Huckabee sees his calling as a higher mandate than merely being a Christian minister. The modern Baptist church has evolved to such a stance. Now the Southern Baptist Convention has shifted its model of Christian activism that once centered on mission work. Rick Scarborough spoke about this at his rally I was at. He claimed that people who used to send their money to mission work now sent it to his movement.

Huckabee is the perfect example a new Baptist vision in the nation. The modern media has failed to notice this shift.
