Playing Politics: Selling our souls for political victory

I have been contemplating writing a post dealing with the Presidential race and the candidacy of Mike Huckabee for some time. Unfortunately I haven’t had an opportunity to do so, as of today. This morning, though, my good friend Alan Cross hit it out of the ballpark with an outstanding article on the very same topic. My thoughts line up with his in almost perfect unison. Until I can write something myself, I really encourage you to read what he has written. You can do so by clicking here.

Micah is a husband to Tracy & a daddy to Grace, Kessed & Haddon. He’s Senior Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN. Most of all, he’s a debtor to grace.

  1. Thanks for linking here, Micah. These thoughts have been building for the past month or so. Huckabee’s burgeoning popularity in the polls just brought home the political ineptness of the leaders of the religious right as well.

    By the way, in case you are wondering what happens when you link somewhere else, I got a lot of visitors today from here.

  2. Alan-

    I’m always glad to link to you. You’ve got some of the best stuff on the web. I’m also glad to hear you had a lot of visitors from here today. Hopefully they’ll keep coming back.

  3. Yeah, the main point of that article seems to be that Fred Thompson is more liberal than Bill Frist (which matters why???)

    It also shows he is more liberal than Duncan Hunter, Tom Tancrado, so that means he is more conservative than 5 of the 8 candidates, including all the candidates that are in front of him in the polls. Now you have said yourself that we aren’t voting based on electability, so if you aren’t I would like to know what makes Huckabee just as good (let alone better).

    I just found out yesterday National Right To Life endorsed Fred Thompson.
