Caught on Video: Huckabee Wants to Put His God in Your Constitution
… and it’s not like peanut butter and chocolate, trust me.
Here’s footage of Mike Huckabee telling his supporters he wants to amend the Constitution to fit his idea of what God tells him the world should be:
If you don’t have video capabilities, here’s the text of Huckabee’s remarks, made on January 14, 2008 in Warren Michigan:
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 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 of how we treat each other and how we treat the family.
What? Come again?
What we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards…
Well, I don’t know what God wants. God doesn’t talk to me. But I do know about the Constitution, and it’s got a couple of doozies in it. There’s the 1st Amendment: no establishment of religion. Then there’s Article VI: no religious test for public office. I guess Mike Huckabee has a problem with the Constitution, which is pretty odd considering that if he were elected he’d be swearing an oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Yesterday he told you he wants to gut the Constitution instead.
But when it comes down to it, the Constitution isn’t like a law of physics. It’s a social compact that depends on an entire society for its preservation. So now it’s up to you: knowing what you know, are you going to going to do what you can to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States? Or are you going to vote for Mike Huckabee?
