Mike Huckabee: Jesus Loved the Death Penalty So...Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee may have refused to answer a question about Jesus' position on the Death Penalty in a November 2007 debate, but he had no compunction about answering such a question back in 1997. Back then, on a radio program, Mike Huckabee argued that because Jesus didn't ask for clemency when he was on the cross, Jesus was implicitly taking a pro-death-penalty stance. This is doubly twisted. A presidential candidate shouldn't have to answer religious questions as a test for public office in the first place, but Mike Huckabee has invited this by trumpeting his religious fitness for office over and over and over. Within that religious testimony, Mike Huckabee shows his moral center: he describes his presidency in terms of holy vengeance. (Source: Arkansas Times, November 29 2007)
What was it that Langston Hughes wrote about the Dream Deferred? With Barack Obama running for President in 2012, can we dare to ask: what becomes of a dream no longer deferred?
Put a Big Red Slash Through the GOP.
Congressman Mike Pence has failed the people of Muncie, Indiana. In his time in Congress, Mike Pence has not worked on issues that matter, but has focused on ideological extremism. Oppose Pence in 2010.
This bumper sticker celebrates Barack Obama as a new voice for hope and change in America. Elect Obama President in 2012 because we need that hope and change desperately.
