    I still believe a literal interpretation of Jesus' words would not allow anyone to quarantine a population of sick, but fairly non-contagious people.

    Now don't get me wrong, I think the Bible, both OT and NT are full of some whacked out, evil stuff, but I think Jesus' view on the sick is pretty clear cut.

    An excellent question! As you have noted, the pickings are slim.

    Lepers were quarantined at the time. Jesus just preached about ministering the to sick. He was perfectly fine with keeping lepers separated from society. Granted, he spent time with the sick, such as when they ate dinner with Simon the Leper, but he was perfectly cool with having them quarantined. There is a difference between preaching about ministering to the sick, and telling everyone to bring the lepers back into the village.

    True, but my point is that Huckabee is a perfect example of the conflict between modernity and Fundamentalist Christianity. His point of view is a literalist Christian world view. Which means its 2000 years old and doesn't square very well with modern, pluralistic, and much more tolerant societies today. He is not a bad Christian, he is a very good Christian in terms Biblical literalism.

    I'm not so sure. Jesus did go around healing the sick, according to the NT, but I don't recall him having much to say about quarantining people in order to stop the spread of disease. Of course, people in that time had no idea what caused diseases nor that it could spread from a sick person to a healthy one or how.

    Nevertheless, had we quarantined AIDS patients in the very beginning, there would be a lot fewer AIDS patients now, wouldn't there?

    There's the full audio of the interview, ironically I had just stumbled across the link to that, and saw this post.

    I did not expect it to embed here, just click on the title bar and it will take you to it.
    Listening to Huckabee's actual words proves the point that taking a few phrases out of context and repeating them along with a slanted point of view sounds a lot different from the actual words of the person being quoted. This sort of thing happens all the time to high profile people of all persuasions.

    I thought there was recent evidence from conservatives that Jesus only healed people that didnt have pre-existing conditions?

    Anyone have a link to support this I can't find one

    I laughed, but it was still wrong.
