Failed presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is using some pretty thinly veiled language to scare voters into making the “right” (in both sense of the words) choice next week.
Above, Huckabee babbles about eternal judgment and values that “stand the test of fire.” This guy was actually a mainstream contender for the highest office in the land, people!
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 6th and vote based on values that will stand the test of fire.
However, Huckabee didn’t suggest women should not be allowed to vote—that’s one of those inconvenient biblical values reactionaries don’t like to bring up.
