United States of Jesus Christ

In this little experiment that we call America there is the freedom of religion as one of the many foundation blocks of our entire society. Added to that foundation is our freedom of speech. Toss in the Bill of Rights and you have a firm base to build your nation on. Then you add in all the decisions by the Supreme Court that becomes the support beams to hold up the roof.

When it comes to the Presidency in the Unites States it is not a bad thing for the President to have a strong sense of faith and belief that there is a higher power but you can not govern by it. Square peg, round hole. With such a diverse population we are not a society of one size fits all and when it comes to religion that little theory can or should implode a candidacy for President. We may be a nation under God but we are also one nation with many variations under God. Over at the Washington Post they have this interesting piece of Reverend Huckabee’s version of faith and the Presidency.

Huckabee Stands by ‘Christ’ CommentBy LIZ SIDOTI

DES MOINES, Iowa — Mike Huckabee, a Republican relying on support from religious conservatives in Thursday’s hard-fought presidential caucuses, on Sunday stood by a decade-old comment in which he said, “I hope we answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ.”

In a television interview, the ordained Southern Baptist minister and former Arkansas governor made no apologies for the 1998 comment made at a Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Salt Lake City.

“It was a speech made to a Christian gathering, and, and certainly that would be appropriate to be said to a gathering of Southern Baptists,” Huckabee said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

He gave the speech the same year he endorsed the Baptist convention’s statement of beliefs on marriage that “a wife is to submit graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.” Huckabee and his wife, Janet, signed a full-page ad in USA Today in support of the statement with 129 other evangelical leaders.

Snip - Cut - Co-Pay

In the NBC interview, Huckabee, a longtime opponent of legalized abortion, said he does not believe that women should be punished for undergoing the procedure, but that doctors might need to face sanctions.

“I don’t know that you’d put him in prison, but there’s something to me untoward about a person who has committed himself to healing people and to making people alive who would take money to take an innocent life and to make that life dead,” Huckabee said.

He also argued that his emphasis on his Christian beliefs does not mean he’s alienating atheists. He said, if elected, he would have no problem appointing atheists to government posts. - Washington Post

Where do I start when it comes to Governor Reverend Huckabee? I’m just guessing that Mike Huckabee believes that God made women with smaller feet than men so they could get that much closer to the kitchen sink to do the dishes. For that matter all of you woman that were beaten or abused by an abusive testosterone bag of bones should have pulled a Tammy Wynette and stand by your man. Bruises heal, bones mend and you probably did something wrong anyway. In his mind or in his teaching woman are and will always be second class citizens and that is just simply wrong. Then there is the added point that if Hillary is elected then Bill is really the President. That hurts my head to even think how that would work.

Roe vs. Wade, under Huckabee, nope. Kiss it good bye under the cause of the Christian Right. All you pro choice people that think your body is your own will need to line up for womb inspections under Das Fuhrer Huckabee. You better start praying that your babies didn’t have sharp finger or toe nails. Any scratches on the sacred chalice and life building organ will be cause for lethal injection. He isn’t totally against the death penalty but I could be wrong.

Then he pulls a Paul Pot from Cambodia and locks up all of the OBGYN doctors that might have performed an abortion. Then they can focus on all of the Lawyers that fought for and defended Roe vs. Wade and lock their asses up too. He will pay for it first by the added tax on one bedroom trailer home sales for back alley locations that will skyrocket as Planned Parenthood and other such medical offices are shut down. Then he might just add a wire coat hanger tax but that is a little to graphic to explain.

Mike Huckabee is standing by his statements on bringing America back to Christ but he can’t see the difference between Americans and America. No two American’s are alike and where one person finds abortion totally disgusting and wants the law changed, that same person believes that the death penalty is appropriate for crimes against our citizens. Pick one but you can not have it both ways if you swear to God above to be righteous.

As for all you Atheists or other icky religious persona non grata, the Post Office will be plastered with Huckabee appointees. Don’t even think about SCOTUS. Those positions will be reserved for zealous religious proponents of bringing America back to Christ.

By the way, screw all you Jew’s too from the Huckabee campaign. Merry Christmas, Happy Easter and all of the other religious holy days we as Christians will stuff down your throat under a Huckabee administration.

Thomas Jefferson is rolling in his grave at about fifteen thousand RPM’s right now. Look up for yourself on Google why he wrote the separation of church and state. Then look up whom he wrote it for and against.

Voting for Mike Huckabee is voting against all that America was founded on. Your right to believe in the choice of faith you want or to ignore faith entirely. Huckabee is hoping that many people will take their faith to the poll and elect him as America’s beacon of light back to Christ but I personally do not believe Jesus ever wanted a political office that proposed hate or judgment on anyone he loved. All you non believers included.

Our nation and the foundation it was built on will stand strong when we have a President that believes that his or her faith can not come first when governing. We are a house built with many products called faith and the roof needs to be replaced. Mike Huckabee is not Jesus Christ, I know Jesus Christ Sir. And you Sir are no Jesus Christ.

I’ll probably go to hell for that last one but I could not resist.

    mat…you are correct to be concerned about Huck. the subliminal nature of his Christmas message was pure genius. a few weeks ago many of the religious voters were going to stay home. now they are fired up and if it is a Hill-Huck election we may just have another republican in the white house. the news that John Bolton is advising Huck on foreign policy make things look bleak indeed. folks better get informed and engaged. i wonder if attacking him on religious grounds and social issues is the most effective approach. his misstatements on foreign policy seem to be quite disturbing, especially if the neo-cons are infiltrating his campaign.

    Huckabee is a stupid name. Can we really take a President seriously if his name is “Huckabee”? I say no, we can’t.

    And why did he leave his job as Pastor? Was it for the MONEY and POWER that politics brings? Not very Jesus like there Suckabee. God calls you to be a Pastor, and you spit in God’s eye and you go into politics. Better hope God likes to get drunk and forget what he said!

    And for the other commenter, Huckabee voters will not care about his stand on foreign policy. Hell most of them think that John Bolton is that guy who makes terrible music. The mindless masses will vote for Huck based on the shit they hear in Church. They do not care about foreign policy. They WANT a war in the Middle East because they believe that Jesus can not return unless there is a war in the “holy land”. They WANT to piss Muslims off and rebuild the temple, because again it will cause Jesus to return. And as for the fallout and other side effects of the war? They believe they will be raptured up to heaven by magic! So again - they do not care about that either. Only heathens like myself will be left behind to deal with the judgment.

    Huck is one of them. One of the CRAZY PEOPLE! I do not trust him. I do not trust the church. I do not trust anyone who claims to have spoken with God, and then advocates war and seeks wealth and power. I do not trust ANYONE who obtains wealth and power using religion.

    Do we really want one of them as President? No we don’t. I am not a huge Hillary fan - and by no means do I believe the stuff she says nor do I have a great deal of trust in her. But given the choice of Hillary and a crazy man, Ill go with Hillary.

    Rube,

    I think you and I see more eye to eye on many of the issues talked about here.

    Happy New Year to you and yours my friend.

  5. Christopher Radulich Says:

    How many of the “pro-life” people support the war. Do they believe that no innocents have been killed? Do they think no pregnat women have died?
