Mike Huckabee Wants Every Person In America To Be Forced At Gunpoint To Listen To Every David Barton Message

In his dreams

Mike Huckabee speaking at the Rediscover God in America Conference in Iowa revealed that he holds David Barton in such high esteem that everyone in the USA should be made to watch all his messages at gunpoint.

There goes everyone's rights to freedom. I wonder if Sarah Palin has anything to say about this?

The video speaks for itself and I think that the more often that this video is posted the less Huckabee's chances for running will be. Please twitter the youtube link.

He's toast! Blueberrytart has this to say after watching the video.

Sick, sick, sick. I'm sure it appeals to the RWNJs, but most Americans would be appalled by that statement, even moreso after Tucson. I think if his fate wasn't sealed already, this should do the trick.

According to sourcewatch, Dave Barton, the man that Huckabee admires so much, has been hired by the RNC as a political consultant on numerous occassions. Barton believes that the idea that church and state should be separated is a myth and that pastors should be free to endorse politicians from the pulpit. A belief that he had to walk back when it was made apparent to him that he was encouraging pastors to put at risk their churches tax status.

Here is a typical David Barton message -- be careful how you vote or you will have to answer to God.

We're to seek righteousness first, and dozens of Bible passages affirm that a nation's righteousness is determined by its public policies, by how well those policies conform to God's standards. We love to sing "God Bless America," but if we really want God to bless America, we've got to give him something to work with.

For Christians, voting is not a right, it's a duty. It's a stewardship that we owe to God and it's a stewardship for which we'll answer directly to him. One day we'll stand before him and he'll say "what did you do with that vote I gave you?" And we'll have to answer.

Righteousness must be the issue. It must be the measure to define what we're for politically and what we're against. And each of us will answer to God not only for whether we voted, but for how we voted, for what issues drove our vote.

If we stand before God and He says "why did you vote for a leader who's attempting to redefine my institution of marriage and who wills the unborn children that I knew before they were in the womb?" If He asks us that and our answer is "Because that leader was good on jobs and the economy," He's not going to accept that.
