The Corpus Callosum

An Hypothetical for Huckabee

What would you do if a series of archaeological expeditions
uncovered ancient texts that indisputably showed that Matthew, Mark,
Luke, and John each independently quoted Jesus as having said that
waterboarding is immoral?

    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’m sure you knew that anyway, there is already more than enough in Huck’s holy book to absolutely prohibit any torture, and also more than enough there to justify far worse.

    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.

    You do realize that Huckabee is opposed to waterboarding, don’t you?

    I suppose I should check these things out. My opinion of hi just went up from zero to 0.05.
