Unbelievable (no pun intended). Huckabee back in the pulpit in New Hampshire. Washington Post:
A pastor from Texas was scheduled to deliver the sermon Sunday at a church here called the Crossing.

But instead this small evangelical congregation heard from a different special guest: Baptist minister and 2008 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who delivered a sermon of more than 20 minutes on how to be part of "God's Army" in the middle school cafeteria where the congregation meets.

"When we become believers, it's as if we have signed up to be part of God's Army, to be soldiers for Christ," Huckabee told the enthusiastic audience.

Days after winning the Iowa Republican caucus, where Christian conservatives powered him to victory, Huckabee now finds himself in a state without an extensive religious base. While more than 60 percent of GOP voters were estimated to be evangelicals in the Iowa caucuses, they accounted for only about one in five New Hampshire Republican voters in 2000, the last time the state held a competitive GOP primary.

This is some of the worst politiking I have ever seen. He probably got paid as a guest pastor too, I would venture to guess.

I was just reading an article online at Washington Post that is about this. It is posted on Drudge. The think that caught my attention was this line, "In his campaign stops in New Hampshire, Huckabee has generally focused on appealing to nonreligious voters, playing the bass guitar and emphasizing his support of small government, local control of schools and gun rights -- popular causes among Granite State Republicans."

LOCAL CONTROL OF SCHOOLS. Did you catch that? That is the one huge issue that has upset so many Arkansas residents about Mike Huckabee. He worked very hard to get rid of half of our school districts. He wanted to consolidate the schools into only large districts. Even when it was proven that the smaller districts were doing as well and sometimes better than the bigger schools. It was also proven that it would cost more to do it. He had no problem with putting kids on buses for very long rides. He had no problem with taking away local control of schools from most of rural Arkansas. Fortunately his plan was whittled down to only affect the smallest schools, but he was bitter about it. One proposal he approved of was to have 1 district for each county only. Now he says he is for local control. Sorry, but his history says otherwise.

I've been so impressed by your family -- and especially by Gov. Romney's poise and polish under pressure. You must be so proud of him! He is the kind of man I would like to see representing us to the world. If a candidate can't take the pressure of a debate and a primary, how will he do in the White House and on the international scene?! My parents are evangelical missionaries, so I know from experience how other nations view us.

I appreciate your family and am leaning toward voting for Gov. Romney in the SC primary.

I'm praying for you -- and for God to bless America as He has in the past!

Keep on keeping on!

I wish Huck would come preach at my church so I could make a scene gathering my friends and family and walking out. I'm surprised that hasn't happened with anyone yet...maybe there was no press coverage.

Huck is the only candidate on the GOP side who's nomination would cause me to make a statement to the GOP by staying home in November 2008.

Thing is, New Hampshire has a religious base. But they're not generally the kinds of Christians who are going to respond to quotations about "God's army." From my religious background, I recoil at the notion. It's a very simplistic, un-Biblical tent revival technique.

Christ never mentioned the first allusion to an army outside of perhaps splitting families. If you want to refer to servants, fine. If you want to say messengers, fine. If you want to say agents, fine. But God's army?

Huckabee's religion almost annoys me as much as his politics, and that's coming from an Evangelical Presbyterian active in missions and in his church.

Why are there links from to juan mccain blogs aka (listed as "Bloggers for Huckabee" under "Red Man Blue State"...

As if we needed any more proof that the two of them have a symbiotic relationship... 2 peas in a pod. The most liberal republicans you can find.
