Huckabee: Amend Consitution in “God’s Standards”

so under Bush we have had this wierd mix of 1984 and Brave New World and if the Corporatists appoint Huckabee we can look forward to A Handmaid's Tale. Let's see Obama with his "Democrats believe in a Mighty God" and everyone else passing the Christian religious test isnt it time for a secular Cascadia to be free. Personally I have my religion and its private and that is the way I like it.

I am tired of living dystopias.

Huckabee: Amend Consitution in "God's Standards"

Meanwhile, Mike Huckabee's religious views are coming under more scrutiny after he called for the Constitution to be re-written in "God's standards."

Mike Huckabee: "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 was speaking Monday in Michigan. On the Democratic side, Senators Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and former Senator John Edwards squared off in a debate last night in Nevada. Missing from the stage was Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich, who lost a last-minute legal fight with NBC over his inclusion. Kucinich had sued the network after it disinvited him from participating. He'll join us later in the broadcast.
