Here’s the most contemptible behavior yet from a presidential candidate – Mike Huckabee dialogues with god on his cell phone.
If Huckabee had professed to speak to god directly, some people would have been put off. But by cloaking his godliness in a tongue-in-cheek comedy routine he manipulates the crowd into thinking he is close to god without him being too pious about it.
If politicians continue to behave in this manner, they really should dress up as pastors or priests. Such antics obliterate the line between church and state, which is probably their goal.
We’re are reminded of a saying by the Ancient Roman philosopher, Seneca.
“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the ruler as useful”
The important word here being USEFUL
While listening to his little god talk we felt as if we were watching an episode of Mister Rogers’ Neigborhood or Romper Room. We actually forget for a moment that he was speaking to an audience of adults. Could Huckabee have been more condescending to the American people?
Perhaps it is naive of us to think that good leaders should elevate the people instead of keeping them down.
If there is a Hell, we hope you rot in it, Huckabee.
