Mike Huckabee delivered the standard “the whole country went to hell when we took prayer and Bible reading out” bullshit speech to a conference held by TV evangelist con man Morris Cerullo. Such tiresome and idiotic rhetoric. Yeah, things were so much better when kids were reading the Bible in schools and then using that same Bible to justify setting dogs and firehoses on civil rights marchers.
“Because we were bringing Bibles to school people weren’t bringing guns to school, except for the deer hunters who left them in their trucks,” Huckabee said. “What has happened to our culture? What’s happened is we have lost our landmarks. When we reject the Bible as the objective word of truth, when we say that the Bible is no longer the standard by which we live and we make it whatever we feel, what we think, what we believe, then we have no landmark at all because that landmark is always being moved to accommodate our lifestyle rather than make our lifestyle accommodate the word of the living God and the power of the Holy Spirit.”
