HOUSTON – Houston Mayor Annise Parker acknowledged Monday that her office had received Bibles from across the country following a protest campaign launched by former Republican presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee.
“I know we’ve received some and they’re collecting them in the office but I don’t know how many that might be,” Parker said.
A spokesperson with the mayor’s office later stated that somewhere between 500 and 1,000 Bibles had been shipped to the mayor so far.
“I would like to ask every pastor in America, send her your sermons,” Huckabee said on his Fox News show on Oct. 20. “Everybody watching the show ought to send her a Bible.”
