Why Mike Huckabee Should Never Be President

Same reason Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton should never be president. We have a separation of church and state in our Constitution. We do not have a religious requirement for a person to become president. We should never entertain the thought of a religious leader, no matter the religion, to become president. This means that several of my family members and friends should never be allowed to be president.

I’m okay with that.

I just want those people who feel that Huckabee is a good idea for a president because he’s a minister to think about their hypocritical feelings if Huckabee was a rabbi or an imam. Think of all those idiot Republicans and GOP media types who make a big deal of Senator Obama attending a Muslim school as a child, in a Muslim country and the lies and idiocies they spread about the Christian Senator wanting to turn this secular country Muslim. Not just your average run-of-the-mill Muslim, but a psychotic-beheading-jailing-the-rape-victim sort (I had to throw in the beheading so you won’t think I was talking about, Bill O’Reilly). Then think about how you feel when I say: Huckabee as president is dangerous because he is a Baptist minister and would turn this country into something out of A Handmaid’s Tale. Or worse.

  1. If the list of candidates to choose from was a line of port-o-potties outside a concert, Huckabee would be the one overflowing with diarrhea.
    If you want a real candidate with real values, then you want Hillary Clinton. Just trust me.

  2. First, the words “separation of church and state” never appear in the Constitution, nor are they ever implied. What the Constitution does say is: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” That’s an important difference. There’s no reason why our country shouldn’t have a religious leader, provided he doesn’t aim to prohibit the exercise of other religions, or create a national church. Quite frankly, I think it’s ludicrous to accuse Huckabee of desiring either of these things (if you disagree with me, please cite your reasons).

    Furthermore, it is reasonable to desire a Christian president, and yet not desire a Muslim one (or even one with any connection to Islam). Religions are essentially ideologies; preferring a president of a certain religion is not any different than preferring a conservative or liberal candidate.

    Finally, Atwood’s book (while a good read) is not even vaguely reflective of what a Christian theocracy would look like. The Handmaid’s Tale specifically mentions “Baptist guerillas” fighting the government. Furthermore, the religion of the Republic of Gilead downplays the role of Jesus to virtual non-existence, and is clearly portrayed to have suppressed most mainline Christian denominations (indicating it is, at best, a pseudo-Christian regime).
    Consequently to state that Huckabee (by your own admission a staunch Baptist Christian) would want to make a society even vaguely like the Republic of Gilead borders on libel.
