Huckabee wins Iowa

Huckabee, Obama enjoy huge night in Iowa

[...] Huckabee's victory can be attributed to his overwhelming support among evangelical voters and women, the polls indicate.

With 92 percent of Republican precincts reporting, Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, had the support of 34 percent of voters, compared to 25 percent for Romney. [...]
What does this mean for us at [info]dark_christian? Well, Rev. Stan Moody of the Christian Policy Institute has one view worth noting here.

JewsOnFirst: Mike Huckabee, Christian Zionist
Huckabee's proposals amount to ethnic cleansing of Palestine
[...] Orthodox Jews love him. The Christian Right loves him. The LaHayes (authors of the Left Behind series) love him. Tele-Zionist John Hagee loves him.

It is not because Gov. Huckabee is not a Mormon that they all love him. It is because his foreign policy as President will be to put the finishing touches on the Bush Doctrine in the Middle East.

In a nutshell, Huckabee is a Rapturist. I’ll explain.

Belief in the Rapture is predominant within Evangelical circles. It has no biblical support except by inference. It finds no place in the early history of the Christian Church and is based primarily on a prophetic interpretation developed in England in the mid 19th Century. Its architect was John Nelson Darby, founder of the Plymouth Brethren movement, a fundamentalist Christian sect that came out of Dublin, Ireland in the 1820’s. Darby published some 50 books on his unique interpretations of the New Testament.[...]
So the Republicans are apparently on track to nominate an avowed Rapturist, who will certainly further taint church state separation, and continue the failed policies of the Bush regime in the Middle East.


Huckleberry is a rather creepy dude as far as his views go.
I'd rather he stuck with his writing of true crime books than get into politics.

New Hampshire is a few days away.
