Daily Show on Huckabee...
Probably the most interesting outcome from this Huckabee appearance is that we now know that Huckabee thinks the Bible is backwards and unevolved... and although he disagrees with the Bible he is bound by it. Which, interestingly enough, explains many GOP policy positions... i.e., it is their belief that they are bound by the Bible to carry out these policies no matter what the voters think. Mitt Romney has already proven this. Apparently they have to lie to people to make them feel better then they gotta do what they gotta do as the Bible has instructed them to. It's a fascinating scenario of biblical madness.
Jon Stewart counters with;
i.e. here are the Biblical verses Stewart is referring to and then some;
Deuteronomy 22:11 Do not wear clothes of wool and linen woven together.
Leviticus 19:19 "'Keep my decrees. "'Do not mate different kinds of animals. "'Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. "'Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.
Leviticus 19:27 “‘Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.
Leviticus 5:2 "'Or if a person touches anything ceremonially unclean--whether the carcasses of unclean wild animals or of unclean livestock or of unclean creatures that move along the ground--even though he is unaware of it, he has become unclean and is guilty
Leviticus 11:7 And the pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you.
Leviticus 11:9 "'Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams, you may eat any that have fins and scales.
Deuteronomy 22:9 Do not plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard; if you do, not only the crops you plant but also the fruit of the vineyard will be defiled
Leviticus 25:44-46 However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.
But I guess, Huckabee could argue back, "Hey! The only Law I care about from the Old Testament is the anti-gay one cause it makes me feel squeamish."
If so I guess Huckabee is the guy who wants to save people from being gay or doing unlawful gay acts (whatever the case may be) and is willing to go to any extent to accomplish his PERSONALLY CHOSEN Biblical commandments?
If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife. (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

Hosea 13:16 (King James) "Samaria will bear her guilt because she has rebelled against her God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to pieces, and their pregnant women ripped open."
Numbers 31: 17-18 "17. Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. 18. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."
Deuteronomy 20:16 "However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes."
1 Samuel 15:2-4 "2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. 3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. 4 And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah."
Psalm 137:8-9 "8 O daughter of Babylon, O destroyed one, O the happiness of him who repayeth to thee thy deed, That thou hast done to us. 9 O the happiness of him who doth seize, And hath dashed thy sucklings on the rock!"
What Huckabee believes in:
Genesis 19:8 New International Version (NIV): 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”
(so devoted to stopping the sin of gayism Huckabee is)
What marriage is like in for Huckabee?
“If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl’s father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives” (Deut 22:28–29).

This is a major breakthrough as we can now explain the GOP's attack on military rape victims and also why Paul Ryan is helping protect rapist rights, i.e. Republican Paul Ryan Protects Rapists’ Rights in New Fetus Bill
In fact, meet 'team rape'! ...
As Stephen Colbert explains...
Yet, despite the low approval ratings for rape policies, GOP continues to push their Biblically inspired beliefs...
"From denying abortion to military rape victims, to aiming for total bans in the states, the GOP's assault continues"

That the GOP is following Biblical law certainly explains why they keep changing their reasons for why they support a particular policy concerning controlling women (each time one of their views is debunked they go out searching for another reason why they are right despite science i.e. they the anti-science party)
