Serious witch doctor stuff from a person that a large swath of the media represent as a credible candidate for President of the United States.
I’m ashamed to admit it wasn’t all that long ago that I actually considered Mike Huckabee an example of a “decent Republican.” To be fair, I didn’t know a great deal about the man when I believed such a thing, but I just never recall him being this bizarre. The few stories I had come across about him always seemed fairly sane and I never remember seeing anything from the man as absurd as I’ve seen here lately.
I’m not exactly sure if he’s always been this outlandish, or he’s simply behaving in these radical ways to pander to the ultra-religious wing of the Republican party in the hopes that their support might be enough to give him the GOP nomination in 2016.
Take for instance a recent rant he went on where he said that he’s ready to stand alone if he must and call down fire from Heaven to cast out “false prophets.”
“God wants us to stand in the gap,” Huckabee said. “And sometimes my heart’s broken because, in our own country, a lot of pastors will stand in the pulpit but they won’t stand in the gap. We wonder why our culture has turned godless. We wonder why people don’t grow up understanding the fundamentals of natural law, the moral basis of our Judeo-Christian founding as a nation. Might it be that the problem is not the history classes in our high schools but the pulpits of America who have not taken what they even believe and applied it to the pulpit and to the people?”
Okay, Mike, why don’t you do something worthwhile and call down some fire on ISIL’s forces in Iraq and Syria? Are the liberal “false prophets” really that much worse to you?
