Despite the fact that the United States have a clear division between church and state, Republican Mike Huckabee told Michigan voters we should change the Constitution to reflect “God’s standards”.
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 amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than trying 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.
Huckabee lost the Michigan primary with only 16% of the vote. And people say Americans are dumb!
16% is pretty high… Americans are dumb.
It’s about time some rightwing fundy wackjob finally came out and said what it is they’re really after: a christian theocracy built on ignorance and sheep-like conformity. Huckabee and his supporters are no more than crazed, dangerous, bible-thumping mullahs who want to impose their idiotic faith-based facistic vision on the nation, and should be loudly and clearly identified as such.
Obviously this is all old news: what’s new is someone like Huckabee who’s “honest” (or stupid) enough to actually say it.
It’s really hard to think any majority will spring for this after eight years of Bush, though. Terrifying thought all the same.
Huckabee is not a threat for the presidency. Mitt is in the lead. He has won two primaries/cauci and come in second in two which makes him in the lead with number of delegates.
Matt–I’m not so sure I’d be so quick to dismiss huckabee, particularly this early…though I tend to agree with you. It’s kinda like the mediaheads going on about an Obama landslide after Iowa, and then McCain’s unstoppability after NH–it’s way too early to call who’s “ahead” or who’s not a threat. With the ignorant bible belt yet to weigh in, I wouldn’t discount huckabee’s threat: if nothing else, a strong if ultimately unvictorious showing will give him platform clout and help push the debate rightward and faithward.
16%? That’s 1 out of 6. Yes, dumb. And scary.
