Mike Huckabee Explains the Bible
Last night on the Youtube/CNN Republican debate Mike Hukabee answered questions concerning the bible. I don't have direct quotes, but he said something to the effect that part of the bible are allagorical and others are literal. He explained that there are parts that we disagree on the interpretations and that they are so complex because they can only be understood and explained by God. In effect he said that humans are incapable of comprehending part of the bible.
Why then would God hand down his word for us to not understand?? I thought the whole purpose of the bible was so that man could not misinterpret God's word. I thought the whole idea was for it to be literally his word and that all laws and statements were to be followed as truth. Why would God not allow us the capability to comprehend the word he wants us to follow???
BTW Huckabee supports space exploration, which isn't in the bible. How does he and the Christian right explain that.
Also, here is a link to how they responded to a veteran who served 43 years who is openly gay. Listen to Duncan Hunter infer that good ol' middle American conservative boys just couldn't handle being next to those disgusting gay guys.
"Those who think they know don't know. Those that know they don't know, know."
