Iran is run by Islam, a false religion of hate and murder. Of course a theocracy ran by Islam would be horrible. But Huckabee's faith is Christianity. Now, I don't believe for one minute that Huckabee would force a theocracy on anyone. But let's just take a moment and think about what a Christian theocracy would be like...
If the government ran it's laws and rule system based off the Bibles blueprint on how to live our lives just imagine how great it would be to have laws that say children will honor their mothers and fathers. That people will not have sex out of wed-lock. Imagine how that alone would resolve unwanted pregnancies and STD's. But mankind is far to sinful to ever want to give up their porn and fornication.
Homosexuality would be outlawed of course as the Bible teaches that GOD despises sexual sin. So, I challenge anyone to give a good reason as to why a Christian theocracy wouldn't be a great idea... But, it can't be because it would hinder ones ability to sin. As that would be the only thing people would have a problem with.
The ten commandments are all good laws that would be great if they were instituted into federal law.
And why not?, Most federal buildings have them hanging on their walls.
"While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian." George Washington 1st U.S. President
"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be." John Adams 2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence.
"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us." John Hancock 1st Signer of the Declaration of Independence.
