"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 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." - Mike Huckabee
Mike Huckabee is the embodiment of the American version of the Taliban. With this statement, he is negating the separation of church and state and further professes to make his interpretation of "god's law" the law of the land ... this land, our USA. He is a clear-cut theocrat.
We don't need a theocracy in America.
It is amazing that a guy with a degree in religion from Ouachita Baptist University and a seminary school drop out has risen to the level of winning a state presidential primary. It is absolutely frightening! Particularly when we hear statements from him like:
"When we become believers, it's as if we have signed up to be part of God's Army, to be soldiers for Christ..." - Mike Huckabee, 1/08 Windham, NH
Huck proved himself a good soldier for god by subverting his boss while Lt. Governor of Arkansas. Huckabee's boss, Governor JG Tucker was advised not to proclaim 'Christian Heritage Week' in Arkansas, he did not think it was appropriate to honor a particular faith. But when Tucker went out of town for a week and Huckabee became the acting chief executive, he enthusiastically signed the proclamation, declaring at a later celebration that he was taking a stand against "Christophobia."
George Grant was the co-author for Huckabee’s 1998 book, Kids Who Kill: Confronting Our Culture of Violence. That was the book where Huckabee and Grant lumped homosexuality with pedophilia, sadomasochism and necrophilia as “institutionally supported aberrations.” That line, which Huckabee defended, may well have come from Grant’s 1993 book, Legislating Immorality: The Homosexual Movement Comes Out Of The Closet. In that book, Grant compares homosexuality with pedophilia and bestiality. He also calls for the death penalty for gays, saying “[t]here is no such option for homosexual offenses” except capital punishment.
I thought Muslim theocracies were the only places that called for criminal penalties for gays?
The Huckster claims he knows all about Muslims, because of his 'theology degree'. The only problem is that he lied about that too. Right Mike. Good christian values: lie about your resume, cover up acts of animal cruelty, persecute gays, and change the Constitution to reflect your religion. Not to mention your trouble with ethics as governor of AR.
