Mike Huckabee: Vote for the ‘Right’ Candidate or Go to Hell

Here’s Mike Huckabee explaining a campaign ad he just put out:

“Although I clearly have a point of view and a preference for a candidate, this was about asking people to think for themselves.”

Oh good! Thinking for ourselves! Then this won’t be partisan at all:

“Many issues are at stake, but some issues are not negotiable… The right to life from conception to natural death. Marriage should be reinforced, not redefined. It is an egregious violation of our cherished principle of religious liberty for the government to force the church to buy the kind of insurance that leads to the taking of innocent human life.

Your vote will affect the future and be recorded in eternity… Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire? This is Mike Huckabee asking you to join me November the 6th and vote based on values that will stand the test of fire.”

So if I have Huckabee right, gay marriage and abortion take precedence over whether or not a candidate accepts Jesus as his savior. Good to know. And remember: Liberty for all! (Unless you want an abortion or you’re gay and want equal rights, in which case, kindly exit this country and shut the fence on your way out.)

Personally, I support the right to live your life without someone forcing you to stay alive against your will or have your rapist’s baby. I support marriage for all. I support universal health care. I support a government that doesn’t push Christian beliefs on its citizens. I support a worldview based in reality instead of one focused on “eternity.”

But what do I know. I’m going to hell. (And smiling on the way there, of course.)
