On Huckabee

So I've been kinda out of the election thing, since I'm a registered independent (Less concerned about parties, more concerned about topics). I've been reading about the Republican race, since I'll probably vote for one of them, if I don't vote third party, and I don't really care for the Democrats. So I'll probably vote for a Republican, but only if they support what I support.

My Older sister has told me that she is currently supporting Mike Huckabee, one of the Pro-life, pro-family Republicans fighting for the Republican seat. However, he recently ran into some controversy with the Catholic Church (of which most of my readers belong, to quote Chesterton, as well as myself) for, "courting his evangelical base at the church of a controversial preacher accused of disparaging Catholics." The preacher was one John Hagee, who is a well known anti-Catholic. When I mean Anti-Catholic, I mean all out Whore of Babylon/Evil Crusader and Inquisition/"Most readers will be shocked by the clear record of history linking Adolf Hitler and the Roman Catholic Church in a conspiracy to exterminate the Jews" kind of stuff. The same stuff that has been going around since the Reformation.

So what does a Catholic do? Does he support someone who supports his political views, even if that candidate gains support from people who see your religion as the actualization of the Book of Revelation?

I say you can. It's what Catholics have been doing throughout this country's history. For most of our history, Catholics have faced hostilities, and yet have come to political agreements. It is the same sort of thing that happens at the Right to Life March in January on the anniversery of Roe vs. Wade. People of all religions come together to stand up for life.

Such could be the same in this up coming election.

  1. Hello Ibid. Of course you know where I stand in terms of presidential candidates. It's issues like this that convince me that the only way to settle the issue is to remove the ability of the government to represent special interests, religious included.

    Even still, I support Huckabee over Romney in Iowa if even only for strategic reasons.
