Huckabee Wants Constitution to Reflect God’s Standards

Mike Huckabee, seen above scaring the living bejesus out of me, has gone from 3rd tier candidate to winning the Iowa caucus and becoming one of the front-runners for the Republican nomination. He has done so with charm, wit, a populist economic message, and most importantly strong support from the Evangelical base. He looked to reinforce his popularity among those born again with this message:
“I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God,” Huckabee said Monday night in Warren, Mich. “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 is referring to amending the Constitution in order to ban abortion and gay marriage. This message could work well for the former Arkansas Governor in South Carolina, the next big contest for GOP contenders. More than 50% of likely Republican voters are Evangelicals. The latest poll has Huckabee in a statistical tie behind John McCain. Also, since South Carolina moved their primary up in 1980, no Republican has ever lost their and gone on to win the nomination.
I am going to be truthful with everyone reading this; thinking about that statement makes me tinkle in my pants a little bit. He has made statements before referring to God as the only constituent he needs to please, but this is about as clear as you can make it. Mike Huckabee is running a campaign to create a totally Christian nation with his interpretation of Christian values. He made that apparent in 1998 when he said the religious community needs to “take this nation back for Christ.” In case you doubted Huckabee’s intentions then, this is just more icing on the cake.
