Mike Huckabee Praises The LaHayes As “Great Leaders”

Reported by Priscilla - July 13, 2010 -

Tim LaHaye is a Christian right evangelical who promotes bizarre “end time prophecy” and who supported Mike Huckabee in his past presidential bid. He is the author of the “Left Behind” book series which uses this end time and “rapture” eschatology as the basis for the plots. He recently said that the confirmation of SCOTUS nominee, Elena Kagan, could signal the beginning of the end times. His wife, Beverly LaHaye, is a right wing Christian activist who is the founder of “Concerned Women For America” which is a group of right wing biddies (whoops, concerned women) who seek to take the country back to the chaste old days of the 50’s when those evil gays weren’t pushing their evil gay agenda. Like Huckabee, she wants Christian values to “dominate our government" and asserts that “Politicians who do not use the Bible to guide their public and private lives do not belong in office." Last Saturday, Mike Huckabee provided a pulpit for the LaHayes to rap end times and inveigh against government overreach. (Course, government standing between a woman and her gynecologist is just ducky for these moral scolds)

Huckabee agreed with everything and praised them as wonderful people and “great leaders.” If Fox is “America’s Newsroom,” this “America” is not where I live but I’m getting “left behind,” so whatever. But if you want to hear some crazy (whoops inspirational) talk, check out the video. Cue that great Gnarls Barkley song, “I think you’re crazy…”
