Mike Huckabee has just declared that Jesus Christ is directly at work in his campaign’s rise: “There’s only one explanation for it, and it’s not a human one. It’s the same power that helped a little boy with two fish and five loaves feed a crowd of five thousand people…There literally are thousands of people across this country who are praying that a little will become much, and it has. And it defies all explanation, it has confounded the pundits. And I’m enjoying every minute of them trying to figure it out, and until they look at it, from a, just experience beyond human, they’ll never figure it out. And it’s probably just as well. That’s honestly why it’s happening.” I’m not a Protestant theologian, but isn’t this taking things a bit too far even for those who believe both in the efficacy of prayer and in the Republican platform?
