According to the Associated Press, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee — who has become a serious contender for the Republican presidential nomination — won't say whether he believes that non-Christians can enter the pearly gates. After delivering a sermon at a South Carolina megachurch on "how merely being good isn't enough to get into heaven," Huckabee refused to answer reporters' questions about the salvation of Jews, Muslims, atheists, etc. "I have deep convictions about who goes and who doesn't," Huckabee said, "but as far as who makes that decision, it isn't me, it's God. I'm going to leave that up to him."

What are these "deep convictions"? We left a message with Huckabee's press secretary and will let you know if we hear back. (We would have called God directly, but we don't have His digits like some people.)
