View Full Version : Huckabee Vows To Change the Constitution

Apparently, Huckabee has vowed to change the Constitution into a religious document, based on what he believes to be his God's values.

Our Founders are surely turning over in their graves.

I surely hope that Americans who have remained silent over the recent transgressions against the spirit of our constitution by the Republican Christian Coalition, will be energized to take whatever risks are involved in speaking out against such a grievious attack on our unique and time tested American philosophy of Separation Of Church And State.

Re-writing history apparently isn't enough for the religious right, now they want to re-write the Constitution.

is there a link to Huckleberry trying to do this?
Well, he wants to change it, and GW wants to ignore it (too restrictive)....is there anybody over there that promises to uphold it?

What were his exact words? I am not following this too close so I don't know what you are referring to.

I suspect it will go down as just one more wild accusation with no actual basis in reality other than it makes a good strawman to argue against.

"It's a lot easier to change the constitution than it is to change the word of the living God."

"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, what you are upset about is that he proposes changing the USC thru the system that the USC calls fo rather than doing it through judicial activism?

Have you ever actually read the USC? If so do you understand the process for amending it?

If so you would realize that to do so requires an overwhelming show of support by the people for said changes.

I doubt that either of those causes has anything approaching sufficient popularity to amend the USC over ... but it makes for a good scarycrow doesn't it.

BTW, what you claimed in the first post isn't quite what he actually said now is it?

Dude,we don't pay taxes,only churches do,and they have to prove what the Work of The Lord is,to get a tax deduction. Like maybe the Work of The Lord,is something the Lord can do...
