Huckabee said he would use the military or federal troops to aggressively stop the freedom to choose. Do you worry that leaders who are religious may seek to violate our constitutional rights in a effort to enforce their beliefs.

I'm worried about anyone who will use force to enforce their beliefs, of which religious people make up but a fraction.

Um, no. I'm worried that everyone will go to ridiculous measures to enforce their beliefs.

How many listeners thought it was a good idea or even a legal idea?

Hitler used Christianity to justify his ideology and laws- remember, Hitler and Mussolini were conservatives. Sadly, rhetoric and religion can be very destructive, people feel spiritually justified... I know Mao was a liberal- said it before y'all!

I just love how people point out Huckabee, whose extreme nutcase and the Republican Party as being a representative of the Republican Party. Maybe we should look at Deborah Wasserman and pick apart her views and say that represents all Democrats.😈👿

That's what can happen with this system of government that you revere and worship.

And I'm pretty sure this is taken out of context or exaggerated

Smart, you want to use the violence of the state just as much as he does to enforce your opinions. You and he are the same thing. Exactly the same.

The enforcement of those laws absolutely is violence. Those consequences are violent.

Not all leaders who are religious scare me, but Huckabee certainly does. I'm actually concerned for Huckabee's mental health, because he's gone way off the deep end compared to where he's been in previous elections.

Ok. We've had this conversation. I ignore some laws. I j walk sometimes. I speed sometimes. When I do ignore the law, I understand there could be a co sequence when I do. That's freedom. There is no violence.

And she actually leads the Democratic Party, so that argument would carry at least a little weight.

He was an alter boy. He twisted Christianity and its values to create white supremacy. He was a pagan, he was whatever worked for him- regardless, he was raised Catholic and used it to create ideas and swing people to legitimize nazi ideology. Creepy

Oh, so you're fine with me ignoring your laws?

And yes, you and I can see he was anti-christian, at the time folks thought he was a moralist and God fearing- guy was a con man.

No idea. What one says to rile up voters and gain media attention rarely translates to what they actually do (or could possibly accomplish) if elected. Campaign season is fun for the drama, but that's all it is: drama.

The question was "am I worried about it" ... not "do I believe it could happen".

Violence of the state? I've not proposed that.

Hitler was probably a progressive pagan. He was an anti-Christian.

Switch the words "having abortions" with "owning slaves."

Hitler and Mussolini were not conservatives.
