Huckabee wants a Christianity-centered government, but don’t call it a theocracy!
The former Governor of Arkansas appeared on Christian television show, Life Today, to deliver his message that our nation would be so much better off if we all just believed in God.
Huckabee, who accuses liberals of living in ‘Bubbleville’ in his new book God, Guns, Grits and Gravy seems to live in a bubble of his own where atheists and progressives are the culprits of this “bad” America. Huckabee so wishes to heal the nation by bringing them back to God.
Our nation is in real trouble. We’ve divorced ourselves from common sense. We’ve divorced ourselves from an understanding that we cannot survive as a republic if we do not become, once again, a God-centered nation that understands that our laws do not come from man, they come from God. Our founders really understood that and believed it.
(Except for the law against slavery, that came from Abraham Lincoln.)
Huckabee then continued and said that he wouldn’t want to create a theocracy but then agree that we lived in a “secular theocracy.”
Err. Let me grab my dictionary.
Okay, yes, the First Amendment of our Constitution says that government cannot make any law respecting an establishment of religion. So secular is where we want to be, yet — gasp — there are so many states trying to fight gay marriage on religious grounds. Same with abortion. Someone should tell the founding fathers that Christians are trying to ruin things again!
Sorry, Mike. “Secular theocracy” just doesn’t actually agree. So, while Huckabee wants to say he doesn’t want to create an American Christian theocracy, that is exactly what he wants to do. In other words, a secular’s nightmare. He wants a nation that believes its laws are divine and come straight from a sky daddy to rid the country of evil atheists who ruin Christians’ folksy good times.
