Huckabee: God will Decide If He Should Run for President Again

Mike Huckabee
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee told a group of pastors that God will decide if he should run for president in 2016. Huckabee said said that he is praying about it, and has had several groups from Iowa and South Carolina come to meet him.

In other words, if Huckabee chooses to run again the implicit claim will be that his candidacy is ordained by God. Behind that "aw shucks" country boy veneer is a toxic cynical Christianist politician. In 2010 Huckabee claimed:

Legalizing same-sex marriage would be like saying, well, there are a lot of people who like to use drugs so let's go ahead and accommodate those who want to use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, should we accommodate them?
Right Mike because we are all just like incestuous drug addicts. There are holier-than-thou people who assert their superiority because they claim to converse with their god. Should we accommodate them?

Huckabee, who is a proponent of teaching creationism in public schools, has said that "Jesus is our only hope." Just what we need.

Huckabee hasn't explained how God will let him know if he should run for President of the United States. Will it be a whisper, a bolt of lightning or a burning bush Mike? Will the clouds part and reveal something written in the sky that only Mike can see? Maybe God will drop some stone tablets on his head.
