Maybe you think I was being unfair when, yesterday, I suggested that Mike Huckabee had organized Comic Book Karate Fundraising Commandos for Christ. Sure, Chuck Norris had his Karate Kommandos comic book, and sure, the Chuck Norris Rangers were referred to as fundraising commando squads on the Mike Huckabee campaign web site, and sure, Mike Huckabee had said that his motivation in running for President is to take America for Christ, but is it really fair to suggest that Mike Huckabee would put the militarism of Chuck Norris and the religion of Jesus Christ together?
Well, actually, yes, I think it is. Consider what Washington Post reporters heard Mike Huckabee saying to a crowd of his political supporters just a few days ago: “When we become believers, it’s as if we have signed up to be part of God’s Army, to be soldiers for Christ.”
Soldiers for Christ, huh? This brings the obvious theological question: Where would Jesus enlist? In the Navy?
