I Threw Out Huckabee

28 09 2010

My parents like Mike. They are retired missionaries– as if that explains it… well, it sort of does. They would love to see a pastor in the White House– someone who believes as they do and is rather entertaining about it. They don’t vote by party but by person– and in the last election they voted for a couple of democrats although I think they passed on Obama. We try to avoid talking politics.

I’m a Democrat– middle to conservative– but, a democrat. I am pro-life– all of life: conception to dust, pro-fiscal responsiblity, pro-social programs– almost to the point of socialism– but not quite. I am a christian.

I used to think that Mike Huckabee was ok– a bit square and a little delusional– but, ok. His recent comedic rants about healthcare reform have put an end to my tolerance of the man.  My son is not a wrecked car… !!

Who can forget his plans for those who have HIV/AIDS?! (from www.ontheissues.org)

  • Called for isolating AIDS carriers in 1992, not quarantine. (Dec 2007)
  • Supports consumer-driven “medical IRA” with tax-free money. (Nov 1992)
  • No additional AIDS spending; cancer & vascular victims first. (Nov 1992)
  • Isolate carriers of this plague of AIDS. (Nov 1992)
  • It is not my place to judge Mike Huckabee– so I won’t. (But I did throw out his book.)

    I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. –Gandhi 

    On the last day, Jesus will say to those on His right hand, “Come, enter the Kingdom. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was sick and you visited me.” Then Jesus will turn to those on His left hand and say, “Depart from me because I was hungry and you did not feed me, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink, I was sick and you did not visit me.” These will ask Him, “When did we see You hungry, or thirsty or sick and did not come to Your help?” And Jesus will answer them, “Whatever you neglected to do unto one of these least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!”  (Mathew 25:40)  As quoted by Mother Teresa of Calcutta,  National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC Thur, 3 Feb 94.
