Daily dose of crazy – Mike Huckabee vs. the US Constitution

Huckabee proves that his ultimate goal is to turn the US into a Christian theocracy. He has no respect for the Constitution, and wants to change it to reflect his values, even if that means discriminating against others (like gays).

Quote from speech above (before the Michigan primary):

“I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution. But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God. And that’s what we need to do, is to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards, rather than try to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view of how we treat each other and how we treat the family.”

Last time I checked, the US Constitution wasn’t exactly a “contemporary” document – granted some of the amendments aren’t that old, but the first amendment (which states in part that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”) was ratified in 1791. If Mike Huckabee (or if you prefer the nickname given by his friends – the “Huckster”) wants to amend the Constitution so that it reflects the “word of the living God”, he would seem to be violating the very first amendment to a document I consider nearly sacred.

I doubt the Huckster would appreciate it if a Jew or Muslim (or any Christian denomination not fitting his narrow view of the world) tried to change the constitution to reflect their specific religious values. This is exactly what the document is supposed to protect against – value what you like within your home, but don’t force your religious belief system on anyone else. (Golden rule, anyone?)

Perhaps the real question, though, is whether Mike Huckabee actually intends to change the Constitution if elected President, or if he is merely pandering to a narrow Evangelical sect of our society in order to win a few votes? Either way, his words scare the crap out of me, and should scare a lot of Americans, Christian or other. (Did I mention he’s a big-government type who likes to raise taxes?) Seriously, please don’t vote for this guy.

    Huckabye? Huckabee wants to have adulterers, homosexuals and rape victims stoned to death. He also wants to make alcohol and music videos illegal, and make women 2nd class citizens and to take all girls out of school.

    Oops, my bad, that’s another ‘religion’.

    Hey, anybody but the PIAPS!

    USpace is lying… that is an idiotic statement.

    Also Huckabee words were fairly outside its frame of reference, he himself said his comments were very inelegant and that it was an unforced error that did not clearly reflect his opinion. Let his comments be taken instead in the context of his Governorship which was stellar.

    A bead of caulk along the inside and the outside and vice verse.
    Undoubtedly in this contemporary era, the wealthier homes
    come with a secured lock; otherwise, it won’t be able to customize it at all, or with cash flow problems when no clients come. These are great alternatives for dog doorways since they are not strong which is a big investment and requires ample time and money to spend.
