Move To The Right (of 1 Kings)

From two states south of us, a potential 2016 presidential campaigner was in my state last night, according to CNN:

Mike Huckabee told an Iowa crowd on Tuesday that he’s “not homophobic,” but believing marriage should be between one man and one woman is being “on the right side of the Bible.”

For the peons, sure. And anything after King Solomon. But if you’re a patriarch, the Old Testament is pretty cool with one man and n women, where n is an integer greater than 1.

I could overlook such a statement from your garden variety lawyer, plumber, or community activist. I’d still laugh, however. Mike Huckabee is an ordained Baptist minister. Do Baptists do Bible study or not? Or maybe Rev Huckabee refers to everything to the right of 1 Kings.
