Huffington Post reports that Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, in his support for Kim Davis, the jailed Kentucky Clerk of Court, is now encouraging people to obey only laws they determine to be “right”. This is terrifying talk from someone who wants to sit in the White House and become the most powerful man in the land. It essentially encourages Christian anarchy. At a time when our nation seems more divided than ever, is this the kind of rhetoric we want to hear from our political leaders?
Does Huckabee actually think these things through? Is he so blinded by his faith that all reason has left him? (I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt that he at one time possessed the capacity for reasonable thought) Can he envision the world he’s suggesting? Our entire legal structure would crumble if this were to happen. Anyone could break any law with impunity under the guise of “Religious freedom” or simply “I don’t think that law is right.”
