“Culture of Death.”


Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee reiterated his archaic views on abortion and gay marriage yesterday on CNN.

Said the former Governor:

I repeatedly said there are two issues [worthy of a constitutional amendment]. And that’s the sanctity of human life and just affirming the definition of traditional marriage. That’s it. Only two issues that I would use the political capital to put forth. But the reason is — and not just because these are sort of issues out there in thin air, states are enacting laws that, in fact, really create a confusion about whether same-sex marriage is legal or not.

And as far as the human life amendment, I think this is a defining issue for our civilization and culture. Are we going be a culture of life or a culture of death? And I think it’s important for America to take the stand that we value every human life.

Huckabee ain’t doing so hot in the national polls. CNN reports that he’s only grabbing 18% of primary voters today. A Rasmussen Report filed about one minutes ago (at press time) puts Huckabee in third with 20% of the likely Republican vote. That same source says John McCain has an 89% chance of getting the Republican nomination.

Could Huckabee’s campaign be experiencing its own culture of death?
