Christian nation? Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee promises that if elected president he will fight the “secular theocracy” that is supposedly destroying Christian liberty in America.
Appearing on today’s episode of James Robison’s Life Today television program, Huckabee said that if he was elected president he would have “God’s blessing” to fight the so-called “secular theocracy” that has been imposed upon the American people by atheists and humanists.
On the program, the host, televangelist James Robinson, declared:
We have a theocracy right now. It’s a secular theocracy!… Forced on us!
An excited Huckabee replied:
That’s it! It is a humanistic, secular, atheistic, and even antagonistic toward Christian faith, and that’s what we need to understand. Our basic fundamental rights are being robbed from us, taken from us, piece by piece.
Previously on the program Huckabee argued:
We’ve divorced ourselves from an understanding that we cannot survive as a republic if we do not become once again a God-centered nation that understands that our laws do not come from man, they come from God. It is the natural law of God.
About being president Huckabee said:
The only thing worse than not being elected president would be to be elected president without God’s blessing. I can’t think of a worse place in the world to be than in the Oval Office without God’s hand upon you. I’d rather not get near the place.
In fairness, Huckabee did say on the program that he was not in favor of a Christian theocracy. However, given his previous statements and positions, a reasonable person could come to the conclusion that Huckabee may not be sincere in making that particular claim, and that in reality he does seem to favor some sort of Christian theocracy.
