I was over at Flibbertigibbet, reading his post on the US presidential race. It’s really scary how Christianity is gaining an even stronger foothold in US culture and politics.
Mike Huckabee is the currently leading Republican contender for the president. He is also an ordained Christian Baptist minister, and holds the following positions:
He’s against gays in the military. He’s against gay marriage. He’s even opposed to civil unions. As a Christian, he believes that homosexuality is immoral and that marriage is sacred.
He’s against abortion. As a Christian, he believes that abortion means killing a child and a woman’s right to her own body is superseded by the fetuses alleged right to life.
He’s for the War in Iraq.
He’s against stem cell research for much the same reasons that he is against abortion.
He’s a creationist and an anti-evolutionist. Why? Jesus said so.
He regards environmentalism as a moral issue based on the Christian stewardship concept.
He supports national ID cards and use of RFID chips for tracking citizens.
