Huckabee Wants The State To Become Church
This seems like a prank posting, but it's not. From The Raw Story, while speaking about human life and the definition of marriage, the retrograde religious freak Huckabee said he wants to amend the Constitution to conform with "God's standards":

"I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution," Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. "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'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," Huckabee continues in the video at the link.)

When Willie Geist reported Huckabee's opinion on MSNBC's Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski was almost speechless, and even Joe Scarborough couldn't immediately find much to say beyond calling it "interesting,"

Scarborough finally suggested that while he believes "evangelicals should be able to talk politics ... some might find that statement very troubling, that we're going to change the Constitution to be in line with the Bible. And that's all I'm going to say."

Geist further noted of Huckabee that if "someone without his charm," said that, "he'd be dismissed as a crackpot, but he's Mike Huckabee and he's bascially the front-runner."

What's scary is that, in 2007, in the most powerful nation in the world, Huckabee isn't dismissed as a crackpot, and is, instead, a leading candidate to lead our country. Are we having a government or an after-school prayer session?
