Mike Huckabee Continues With The Pandering Religious Nonsense
Mike Huckabee, who has said that he will make an announcement regarding possibly running for president in 2016, continues with his pandering to the hardcore religious right. This time, he's telling parents to discourage their kids from joining the military, so long as Barack Obama is president. Because, according to Huckabee, Obama's policies are hostile to Christians in the military. You know, because of that whole constitutional thing that aims to prevent an established religion in the military. It becomes attacking in Huckabee's mind (and a lot of religious extremists) when their religion is not allowed to dominate over everybody else's (or atheists for that matter.)
It's all part of Huckabee's crusade against the "secular theocracy" that has permeated American government. Even though that in itself is a contradiction. If a government is secular, it exists apart from an established religion, whereas a theocracy is government which incorporates religious belief as its foundation. However, Huckabee is obviously not inclined in the direction of actually thinking about what he says.
