My wife actually agrees with that role, however she wouldn't support Huckabee for many other reasons, neither will I.

As for the statement he supported that me and my wife agree with:
Quote:
"A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ."
Me and my wife don't stop at these verses and think that the only responsibility of the husband is to be HEAD of the house. By the way, head does not mean master as in a master-slave relationship, nor does it mean a relationship like a general to a private in the army. It is a partnership where one is the leader, guide, director. Now consider this. Can you think of any decision that a husband should make WITHOUT consulting or considering his wife and her wishes and best interest? I can't, and so far me and my wife are closing in on 3 years of a beautiful marriage and we haven't fought a single time. A few disagreements for sure. But we don't try to "win" by getting our way. We "win" by keeping the other happy.


At the same time, I can see where a lot of people who have experienced a much different version of this, or have seen men who are abusive of their wives would think Huckabee is just a loon. I happen to find him a loon for other reasons, not this one though.

"Gracious submission". Sounds a little kinky.

Of course, anything on the Daily Kos is suspect, but that aside, I certainly believe Huckabee would endorse such a tenet, as oppression of women is throughout the Bible. He will surely be grilled on that and any number of issues as the days go by. He is going to need to keep his cool, already is very defensive, and is just not a good "trait" to reveal as leader of the free world. Also needs to play down the God influence as well if he wants to stay out front. However, theology is his profession, so will see how well he balances that with a godless nation. The other caveat is, this was said in 1998. All the other candidates have flip flopped, he may just have to follow suit. After all, a reasonable amount of time has passed, n'est pas?

Huckabee is phenomenally unqualified to be POTUS. He is a career Bible-thumper (Southern Baptist church pastor). He is probably unelectable in the general election.

If he were to be elected, Frank Zappa's prediction (at YouTube, see his appearance on CNN'S "Crossfire" show) of an American Theocracy will, practically speaking, have come to pass.
