In a 1998 speech Mike Huckabee, Republican presidential candidate and self-proclaimed ordained Southern Baptist minister born and raised in Hope Arkansas, called for Christ recapturing America:

"I didn't get into politics because I thought government had better answers. I got into politics because I knew government didn't have the real answers, that the real answers lie in accepting Jesus Christ into our lives..."

"I hope we answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ."

Huckabee has recently surged in various polls in several states with upcoming primary elections. His modest explanation for his recently increased popularity:

"A biblical miracle."

"Divine intervention."

Huckabee counts on "divine intervention" to bring about his election and fulfillment of his vision of national redemption and "taking this nation back for Christ".

Huckabee provided a graphic example of how such "divine intervention" occurs in a speech before the National Rifle Association's "Celebration of American Values" convention in August. Huckabee described stalking prey during a cold, snowy, windy day during a hunting trip for antelope outside Lander, Wyoming.

After several hours, a "miracle" occurred. In Huckabee's words:

"... by the grace of God, when I squeezed the trigger, my Weatherby .300 Mag... did its work, and somehow the angels took that bullet and went right to the antelope, and my hunt was over in a most wonderful way."

Read that claim again, slowly. The "angels" guided Huckabee's bullet, by the grace of God. A cause for joy.

In simple terms, thanks to "divine intervention" by angels, the antelope was dead. Huckabee cold-bloodedly massacred one of God's innocent creatures, he believes with the active support and assistance of his version of "Christ's angels".

Huckabee miraculously killed the antelope with a single shot, per contest rules. Earlier in his speech, he boasted of enjoying using automatic weapons for hunting, and of looking forward to more angel-enhanced opportunities to assassinate innocent, harmless creatures of God:

"... as one who believes, because of my faith, that I'm going to Heaven, I'm pretty sure there will be duck hunting in Heaven, and I can't wait."

In Huckabee's version of Heaven, God will maintain killing fields for the pleasurable, recreational slaughter of innocents. A heavenly version of Pol Pot. Bush's taking childhood pleasure in killing frogs by stuffing firecrackers down their throats will no longer be sufficient for a Heaven-bound and bloodthirsty American president. Neither will Cheney's shotgun slaughter of intentionally maimed pheasants that cannot fly away after being released from small cages to escape one of his many preferred methods of inflicting evil without personal risk.
