Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioMike Huckabee is making the rounds, apologizing for what turned out to be an incendiary comment about Mitt Romney's LDS faith.
Huckabee says this morning his comment was taken out of context. He says he wasn't sure, so he asked the New York Times Magazine reporter if Mormons believed that Jesus and the devil were brothers. He insists it wasn't a loaded question.
"It was a conversation, and it was more to ask him if that's the case, and frankly didn't think much more about it. I think he was surprised it's become such a national story," Huckabee said.
Huckabee says he's apologized to Mitt Romney, and Romney has accepted. The LDS Church issued a statement based on the remark, saying, "Like other Christians, we believe Jesus is the divine son of God. Satan is a fallen angel."
