In these final weeks and days of the 2012 Presidential election, religious war has been declared.
Minister and former politician Mike Huckabee narrates a political ad now circulating which says that anyone voting for Obama will end up in Hell.
The ad starts by announcing that the faithful have always protected the Church, and defended God’s sacred values. Then a list of these ‘sacred’ values are enumerated. In omninous tones, Huckabee tells you which values God approves and which ones God does not.
This ad concludes with these words:
“Your vote will affect the future, and be recorded in eternity. Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire? This is Mike Huckabee, asking you to join me November the 6th, and vote based on values that will stand the test of fire.”
Recorded in eternity? By God, presumably. And this “test of fire” cannot be anything other than the impending Hell-fire awaiting those who violate God’s values. Nonbelievers right along with liberal Christians will roast in Hell, according to Huckabee.
How much longer will it take for this declaration of religious war become an open civil war?
