Huckabee Lied

He doesn't have a masters degree in theology after all.
This didn't really surprise me as he has made some ridiculous assertions concerning god and religion.
In NH recently he was questioned about his "degree"
"I have a bachelor of arts in religion and a minor in communications in my undergraduate work. And then I have 46 hours on a master's degree at Southwestern Theology Seminary. So, my degree as a theological degree is at the college level and then 46 hours toward a masters -- three years of study of New Testament Greek, and then the rest of it, all in Seminary was theological studies, but my degree was actually in religion."
He lied when he told CBN (a Christian news service) the following last month:
"I'm as strong on terror as anybody. In fact I think I'm stronger than most people because I truly understand the nature of the war that we are in with Islamofascism. These are people that want to kill us. It's a theocratic war. And I don't know if anybody fully understands that. I'm the only guy on that stage with a theology degree. I think I understand it really well."
Selling a war as 'theocratic' or 'religious' is historically one way to get the masses to go along with an immoral agenda by the powers that be. Lying about a theology degree (which is different from a degree in religion) in order to sell yourself as the future commander in chief is so intrinsically wrong, a disservice to the discipline and especially evil from a theological perspective. The study of theology does not concern itself with corporate war profiteering, voluntary feuding world governments and the pillaging of the world's resources for fun and earthly profit. Religion, yes. Theology, no. Religious studies concern the history of man's relationship with his "god." Theology is transcendent. I will not go into it here as it will take days to write about it.

Believe it or not, I actually do have a masters degree in theology and a masters degree in business so I know my fascists and my "theocrats." I am an expert in neither, but I can smell bullshit. I'm so happy being an artist at the moment, but I can't seem to escape the stench of Jeso-fascists attempting to corrupt the world.

I am struggling with how someone came up with the term "Islamo-fascists." It appears to be a case of "I know you are, but what am I?"
