Hypothetical questions do not really work on religious people – they have limited imagination – that is why they gratefully accept scripture instead of thinking for themselves.
Any new gospel, however unequivocal it may read to the open-minded, will always be “interpreted” by the religious to justify his own prejudice.

I don’t know that Huckabee is a fundamentalist, but based on many of his statements, I think that his political persona is one. If so, he likely believes that the Bible, as “faithfully” translated in the King James version, is the complete, inerrant word of God. As such, it would be impossible to create a hypothetical argument involving new biblical material that would make any sense to him.
