Huckabee: Separation of Church and State?
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, January 17, 2008

I've been looking for this quote for a couple of days. I first heard in on a morning news show while in Baltimore. I had to come out of the bathroom, where I was brushing my teeth, to ensure I heard it correctly. Frankly it scares the hell out of me. And it ties in nicely with the Billy Hollis article below:
"[Some of my opponents] 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," Huckabee said, referring to the need for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
When challenged Huckabee usually provides some "aw shucks" but glib answer in which he assures the listener that he really didn't hear what he just heard. The other day I saw Mitt Romney questioned about the Huckabee quote. I had to wonder why Huckabee wasn't receiving that question instead.

I have read, somewhere, that Huckabee is really the dream candidate for the left in the general election. Give the above quote, and much more, I can certainly appreciate that assumption.

Surely you’ve heard his recent remarks to NPR about wanting to, in effect, censor political speech...

That’s jut crap. We have freedom of religion. Putting one religion in the costituion is NOT fair. Huckabee is a shame, and Romney is no different.
Ron Paul needs to win. Him or Obama.
