Mirrored Ideologies: Why Huckabee's Recent Remarks Should Make You Worry

by Nomad

HuckabeeMike Huckabee's recent remarks sound vaguely familiar.

The other day on his Christian television show, former Arkansas governor and possible presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee made an attention-grabbing statement. He said that he feared for the nation. 
"We cannot survive as a republic if we do not become, once again, a God-centered nation that understands that our laws do not come from man, they come from God.
He was not, he hastened to add, demanding a theocracy. No way, no how. The problem, he said, was our secularism.

His critics would say that Huckabee's statement is yet another sign - as if we needed any more- that this man is unsuitable for political office and probably always was.

His remarks about laws of man and laws of God seemed vaguely familiar. A quick scouting of the Net led me to the connection.
You are the nation who, rather than ruling by the [Laws of God] in its Constitution and Laws, choose to invent your own laws as you will and desire. You separate religion from your policies, contradicting the pure nature which affirms Absolute Authority to the Lord and your Creator.
That quote allegedly comes from a 2002 diatribe against the US and all it stands for.
The writer?
None other than Osama Bin Laden.
