Interventionist Quote of the Day
(Interventionist God, in this case, rather than interventionist foreign policy).
“Because [Huckabee]’s a Christian, he understands the Lord may call him to run, but he also knows it may not be the Lord’s will for him to run. If he feels the call of the Lord, he’s gonna answer it and the consequences be damned”—Hogan Gidley.
Gidley is “a former aide to Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign and longtime Huckabee staffer, said the former Arkansas governor would fit perfectly on the ticket.”
As I have said before, if God is, indeed, picking candidates, he has some ‘splainin’ to do.
(Yes, that is irreverent, perhaps, but I get really tired of this type of talk because the implications are quite significant and problematic, and yet it is tossed around quite casually. And yes, I am well aware that it is quite common in US society).
