The Newt & Huckabee (and North) Show: NOT the way to get our party back!
Wow. Whipping up the Evangelical Right again, with hyperbole, hypocrisy, and fire & brimstone!
These guys -- wow. As the party gets smaller and smaller, this is not really the way to get it back, is it?!
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee urged Christians to get involved in politics to preserve the presence of religion in American life.
"I think this is one of the most critical moments in American history," Gingrich said. "We are living in a period where we are surrounded by paganism."
They and other speakers warned about the continuing availability of abortion, the spread of gay rights, and attempts to remove religion from American public life and school history books.
. . .
"The notion that we are just one of many among equals is nonsense," Huckabee said. The United States is a "blessed" nation, he said, calling American revolutionaries' defeat of the British empire "a miracle from God's hand."
And then later on they begged, I mean, urged the God.TV viewers to get "engaged" in public life or their "views won't matter."
How absurd. There are plenty of very religious and very spiritual people in leadership positions all over this country. To imply that we are rife with pagans (actually, they didn't imply, they outright said it), is absurd.
I regret to inform these guys, but this is not much different from trying to push for a theocracy.
