Jesus and Politics

This is the sort of thing that scares me about a Huckabee presidency.

Republican Mike Huckabee said Sunday he would not back down from a 1998 statement in which he said he hoped Baptists would "answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ."

I don't think he really stands a chance in the general election even if he does get his party's nod. Still, I think that the move toward an overt conflation of politics and religion in our country is not a good one. I don't remember Jesus telling his followers to get into politics. Other matters seemed to be of more import to him.

But that's just me.
