When I was listening to Mike Huckabee talk about the United State Constitution I was was reminded of the Ayatollah in Iran. The government should be run by the dominant faith of the country. Follower of Jesus or not – the idea of Theocracy is really scary. Huckabee wants to mold the United States Constitution on his particular version of his purported Christian faith. YIKES!!
The King James Bible was partly created out of frustration with the Catholic Church having too heavy of a hand in government. Whould Huckabee have all of us drink the same Kool-Aid? And what if we don’t like Kool-Aid. Those religious fanatics have ways of making people drink Kool-Aid. Perhaps after drinking the Kool-Aid we could all jump on the tail of a Comet and ride to the glory of heaven.
That example is certainly an exaggeration – but it serves to make a point. Huckabee – keep your wacko faith out of my government. The United States is a Republic – a government of all of the people. If Huckabee does not understand that then he has no business having any role in our government process.
I should note that I have no problem with people of faith running for office. Actually, I prefer that a person be grounded in a solid value system – and often those values are rooted in a person’s faith. But a government official in America has to understand the boundaries.
