Recently, Mike Huckabee has been garnering a lot of GOP support in Iowa. Residents were asked for whom they would vote if the Iowa caucuses were held today — and Huckabee leads with a whopping 21 percent of Republicans. Rep. Paul Ryan has the support of 12 percent of voters, followed by Rand Paul at 7 percent, and Rick Santorum — who won the GOP Iowa caucus in 2012 — is at just 3 percent.
Huckabee is already capitalizing on his success by urging Christians to solve Americans’ problems by voting “the Bible.”
“I would urge pastors to get in the pulpit and call people to Biblical truth as it relates to the issue of life and marriage, and even the issue of stewardship, and never be apologetic and say, ‘Vote the Bible in your own heart,'” Huckabee on Friday. “I hear people say sometimes, ‘Vote your pocketbook.’ Well, if you vote the scripture you’ll ultimately benefit your pocketbook, because everything about the economy that’s wrong would be fixed if people had a Biblical understanding of the economy and a Biblical understanding of personal stewardship and responsibility.”
The current Iowa favorite whined that churches can’t get as involved in politics as he would prefer. He noted that churches, while they may engage in a “limited amount of lobbying,” have been “intimidated” by the IRS into staying silent.
“We have people who say ‘Well, the courts have ruled on abortion, we just have to live with it,’ or ‘The courts have ruled on same-sex marriage, we just have to live with it.’ And I would suggest, no we don’t,” he said. “We shouldn’t just accept things that are ungodly and that will cause us to have to stand before God with bloody hands.”
Frankly, we hope that he ends up the Republican frontrunner in 2016. How hilarious would that be?
