Mike Huckabee, the Republican presidential candidate and former Southern Baptist minister, is getting help from Tim LaHaye, the Christian conservative organizer and co-author of the apocalyptic “Left Behind” novels.
“America and our Judeo-Christian heritage are under attack by a force that is more destructive than any America has faced” since Hitler, Dr. LaHaye and his wife, Beverly, wrote in letters sent to lists of conservative Christians in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. “Defeating the radical jihadists will require renewed resolve and spiritual rearmament by the evangelical pastors in America.”[..]
He said this a week or two ago (crusade picture photoshop mine):
Since he bascially, and stupidly, arrogantly, recklessly (and I could add many more disparaging adverbs) declared our "war on terrorism" to be a crusade I went all the way in the photoshopping because you know this is the way Mikey sees it.
I don't support the way we've dealt with terrorism, vis a vis "our ever expanding war" that took our eye off Afghanistan. We are making the world, especially the middle east a fully chaotic and disabled quagmire.
People don't like chaos, they, especially families, like stability, timeliness and no surprise futures. That's why a great deal of energy and time is spent in these areas maintaining the status quo, even in families. We threatened more destabilization through war and they will naturally flock to those who promise to uphold stability and their family and very conservative values, Al-Qeada, et. al. Which means we are xreatring and will continue to create more terrorist and be Bin Laden's largest recruitment tool.
It's human nature, we do it here. We see the world become more chaotic, less predictable, less secure and church attendance, especially conservative church attendance climbs. We flock to leaders who spout tough messures, "law and order," and cowboy diplomacy.
If being a Dominionist isn't enough for you to disqualify Mike Huckbee as president, maybe he reckless nature should be.
