The American Family Association, mentioned in the previous post, is positively mainline compared with the philosophy of Bill Gothard and adherents such as Jim Bob Duggar, he with the wife who’s been pregnant more than 11 years of her life. Why is any of this relevant? Because, of course, they are major supporters of Mike Huckabee.

Gothard’s been active selling his program in Arkansas, a subject likely to receive more examination as the Huckabee surge proceeds.
