Hang ’em High
Republican Presidential hopeful, Mike Huckabee, believes that Jesus would support capital punishment because he didn’t ask for clemency on the cross.
We should be getting used to having madmen running our countries by now. At a Republican Governors Association Dinner, Huckabee took to the stage and almost immediately his cell phone rang. He took the phone out of his pocket and proceeded to have a three-and-a-half minute conversation with God.
He also maintains that a “holocaust” of abortions have artificially created a demand for Mexican labour.
As Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone reported:
One of his first acts as governor (Of Arkansas) was to block Medicaid from funding an abortion for a mentally retarded teen-ager who had been raped by her stepfather — an act in direct violation of federal law, which requires states to pay for abortions in cases of rape. “The state didn’t fund a single such abortion while Huckabee was governor,” says Dr. William Harrison of the Fayetteville Women’s Clinic. “Zero.”
As president, Huck would support a constitutional amendment banning abortion and would give science a back seat to religion. “Science changes with every generation and with new discoveries, and God doesn’t,” he says. “So I’ll stick with God if the two are in conflict.” Huckabee’s well-documented disdain for science was reflected in the performance of the Arkansas school system when he was governor; one independent survey gave the state an F for its science standards in schools, a grade that among other things reflected Huckabee’s hostility toward the teaching of evolution.
