Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee appeared on Newsmax TV and lamented President Barack Obama’s invitation to pro-gay and pro-choice groups to the White House for Pope Francis’ visit.

Huckabee referred to these groups as “dissidents” and said they will “instruct the pope on what the doctrine of the church should be.” He added that Obama was “disrespectful” to the pope and not “a very gracious host.”
