News: Mike Huckabee (a pastor himself) has posted a video on GodTube — the Christian video sharing site — backing the site. He states:
Well, the reason GodTube is an important part of the election process is because this myth that Christians ought to keep to themselves in the church, and never get outside — that’s like saying, let’s never let the salt get onto things that are spoiling. Let’s never let the light actually show up in a dark places to illuminate the path.
That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard. The whole point of being a Christian is to penetrate the darkness, is to preserve the things that are spoiling, and I don’t know of anything more spoiled, more decadent, than politics.
So if there’s ever a place where there ought to be a concentration of Christian activity and involvement, I’d say it’s in politics and government.
So GodTube is helping to be that bridge to get people from the world of the spiritual into the mission field of politics.”
Analysis: Smart move for Mike.
