ktisophilos, I was not saying that it was OK for Hillary or Obama to defile our churches with their campaign rhetoric. I was making a point and I believe that it properly applies to whom ever the shoe fits. People with values hunger for a statesman with integrity and values, sometimes we are too hungry and take their words as more important than their actions. I feel my values are conservative and I think that you are right, that he is conservative in only his speach. His actions I struggle with.

Sophia, why is wrong for Huck to campaign in churches but OK for Obama and Hillary? Note that Obama has long been a member of a "church" that preaches on anti-white and anti-semitic themes.

All the same, Huck is not that conservative. He took the liberals' side when Southern Baptist conservatives threw them out. He also loves high taxes, the nanny state, and releasing violent criminals who go on to murder.

InimicusStultitiae, how can a Christian in good conscience vote for a party that now champions gay marriage, partial birth abortion and appointing judges who legislate leftist and antiChristian views from the bench, and will cut-and-run from Iraq no matter what the cost to the Iraqi people or how much it emboldens al Qaida?

The Dems are no longer the party of Truman or JFK.
---Ktisophilos on 1/21/08

The silly plurality voting system in America ranks only people's first preference, unlike in Australia where we vote for ALL candidates in order of preference. Under the American system, a popular cause can attract many candidates that split the vote, so the representative of a less popular cause slips through the middle.

I like the man. May I say one other thing. Too many lost people. So I do not see a man of God being elected. The lost out numbers the saved. I will say something else. Unless we get someone in office who can hear from God, things are going to get worse. Much worse. I can promise you. So go ahead and vote unbelievers in office. Makes me sick.

Many of our 1st Presidents Used the Churchs as their campaign HQ's. And Gave many Speaches in Churchs, My 7th/6th/5th Gen. Grandfathers took part in this.
The Problem is when the Gov. & the Church get together and FORCE A RELIGION ON IT'S PEOPLE, That's what my Ancestor Fled to America in 1748.YLBD
---Duane_M on 1/18/08

My problem isn't with the typical concerns with the "division between church and state". My problem is whether politicians using churches (sometimes our churches) for their own political gain and asperations for power is improper. Remember Christ clearing the temple of the money changers? In the same way, politicians making speeches in our houses of worship tends to defile them and then puts religion on the alter of politics and there sacrifices our religion to the worldly god of politics.
---sophia on 1/18/08

Churches are private property and if the property owners want to let Huckabee speak, then that is their right. My own church prevents such usage, using the reasoning that bringing Christ's Salvation to all is the most important thing. And, that politics is so divisive that it would turn some away from hearing God's message if politically motivated speach were officially allowed in our church.
---grant on 1/18/08

Duane- all convinced that it's a good thing to Divide Church & State" Yes any rudimentary knowledge of history shows why Church/state must be separate. Mixing both corrupts both. Theocracy and republic are oil and water. The constitution is a secular document, thats not rewriting history, its a return to it. Your issue is with the constitution, the founding Fathers, especially a Mr. Jefferson. (people should not make statements they cannot support)

I think it would benifit everyone to do some research on The History of The framers of this Country & of the Church & State Issues when this Country was Formed.
Loophole Liaryers & the Godless Agenda Groups have you all convinced that it's a good thing to Divide Church & State.
They just did'nt want it to be like it was in England(Church & State.
---Duane_M on 1/17/08

I've got a problem with Huckabee campaigning in churches, like he recently did in South Carolina. I understand he spoke in a couple of the mega corporate christian churches there. "Render unto Ceasar the things which are Ceasar's and render unto God those things which are God's". Churches should not be places for Ceasar. I have no problem with a pastor or preacher running for office, but I don't think Huckabee should be turning churches into his own political media arenas.
---sophia on 1/16/08

I only care about who could beat Hillary. I would like to see Romney be nominated, then pick Colin Powel as VP.

Through I like Huckabee, He would not be strong enough to beat a charming Hillary.

I do wonder if the fundamentalist/evangicals would vote for Romney if nominated, knowing who would win if they don't. Will bigotry trounce common sence?
---MikeM on 12/13/07

Though I disagree with some Mormon teachings, those particular teachings do not come into play in politics. Some "mainstream" Christian churches teach their people that it's acceptable to be pro-choice on abortion. I'll never vote for a pro-choice President (including Rudy, the alleged Catholic). Huckabee impressed me when he admitted that he made mistakes as governor. Humility is necessary for a President. No politician was or is perfect.

I wish that this would not turn into a presidential race that is so much defined as Baptist vs Mormon. I am a Mormon and Henry Reid is a Mormon, I wouldn't vote for Reid as garbage collector. I will not vote for someone based on what religion they claim, but by where they have actually stood on issues. Both Romney and Huckabee are a mixed bag, both talking great family values, but sometimes forgetting those values and acting like typical politicians when serving as governors.
---chris on 12/13/07

I think it was fine for Huckabee to apologize to Romney and would appreciate an apology to us Mormons. That statement he made is similar to calling Jews "Christ Killers". Though it might be true, the intent is not to inform, but to incite bigotry. As a Mormon, I deal with bias, discrimination and bigotry on occasion and I can respect those who differ in beliefs, but struggle with those who play bigotry games simply to build themselves up.
---chris on 12/13/07

Though I so much LOVE the CHRISTIAN values of Huckabee. A man who is a democrat will be winning the 2008 election, though I do not know who that man is....This has been a recent prophecy given to one of my favorite prophets, which I am always apprehensive, of giving prophetic names over Christianet, simply because I have no tolerance for the unbelief and ridicule that follows.
---Whisper on 12/13/07

Huckabee in the news. He spoke the truth and said that Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers. But then, he apologized. He should not have comprised. I'm disappointed.

I am having special feelings about Huckabee,

I will be voting for him.
---Whisper on 12/12/07

"Did he fight to protect our rights or not?"
Are your rights, or mine, the ones the best candidate will protect?
The rights of the rich, are they more important than the rights of the poor?
Are you, am I, rich or poor? I am not rich myself, nor poor, but just a bit below the middle, and fairly comfortably off, although I have to watch my finances closely.
Yet I say the rights of the disadvantaged & poor are more important than mine.

I am sorry, Michelle and Lovable Linda, but I cannot support what MikeM says, because I am from the UK
---alan_of_UK on 12/12/07

No Christian should ever feel an alliance with either party. We should always vote for whichever candidate is on the Biblical side of most issues. However, in my opinion, abortion outweighs all other issues today (Psalm 139). Many people criticize one-issue voters, but remember, most white southerners in the 19th century opposed slavery, but on election day, they thought it was wrong to be a "one issue voter". It's sad that we can't learn from history.

I was a Republican for 45 years, but after Bush I will never again vote for a Republican. The pastor of the Baptist church I attend is a lifelong Democrat. One of our best presidents ever, Harry Truman, was both a Baptist and a Democrat.
---InimicusStultitiae on 12/7/07

Great guy - Lou Engel had a word about him a few years ago that he would be in the White House. I thought he was going to be VP but it seems god may have other plans

He has my vote
---Andrea on 12/7/07

I support Hickabee as he comes closest to mt values. Once can only dream of a perfect candidate.

1. Huckabee-sounds like a Mark Twain novel

2. Mit Romney- Is good, but he seems rather plastic

3. Guiliani-a true hero, but on social issue too liberal for me.

One must also ask, "who could best beat Hillary? Waking up with her as president would be a nightmare.
---MikeM on 12/6/07

Find out his record as governor. Did he fight crime or was he soft on it? Did he fight to protect our rights or not? Did he raise taxes or lower it? Did he reign in spending or increase it? Is he highly honest and ethical? Remember Jesse Jackson is a minister too and so are many others that may or may not share your values. I haven't found ministers to be much better or much worse than the general population, so just be careful. Personally, I like Tancredo, but he hasn't got a shot.

I pray that God will speak the name, of who HE choses to be President, There is not a one who does much to impress me, But the important thing is Which one impresses God. David was a boy with a slingshot, a shepherd...who attended the school of hard knocks before he became KING. Which one has suffered previously... Past through the fires of hard times first, tried and true. I beleive that will be who I vote for. I don't want a guy from EASY STREET.

I wasn't familiar with Mike Huckabee until I received an edition of "New Man" christian magazine a few months ago. They wholeheartedly endorsed him and really gave me food for thought.
I have continued to follow Huckabee's campaign. He certainly appears honest and I also appreciate his candor.
---Barry on 12/4/07

I liked Huckabee's answers during the last debate. I really did not pay any attention to him until the most recent debate.
