The Raw Story | Huckabee: Amend Constitution to be in Gods standards

The United States Constitution never uses the word “God” or makes mention of any religion, drawing its sole authority from “We the People.” However, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee thinks it’s time to put an end to that.

“I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution,” Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. “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 — 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.”

My first reaction was to thank God (ahem) that he revealed his lunacy before the election. The next reaction, though, was to worry that those religious loonies who voted for Bush would line up again for Huckabee.

I honestly believe that this period of history will be viewed by future generations as a new dark ages. When the world slipped into wars (military and ideological) of race and religion. And in the US, when those who hate “political correctness” turned it to their own advantage to stop progression in its tracks and try to revert to an “America” even the slave-holdin’, God-fearin’ Founders rejected.
