    Considering that he has a special view of God, just whose God is he referencing here?

    "At a Michigan campaign event last night, Mike Huckabee gave an interesting reason for why he wants to amend the Constitution to ban both abortion and gay marriage: Otherwise, the Constitution would be in conflict with God.

    Huckabee first observed that some of his opponents don't want to amend the Constitution on both of these topics. "But 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. "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."

    We need more of that!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Take out the word God and replace it with morality... and reread the speech

    Right. Dude is thumping a Bible. I don't care for Christian extremists anymore than I do any other extremists.

    It breaks down as simple as this. There are hundreds of denominations with protestant Christian churches. Each preaches it's own special little doctrine. I'm not voting for someone who wants to legislate his church's doctrine on me.

    Not to mention he's appealing to emotion. Logically, he isn't going to do anything more about what he considers immoral than the last guy or their predecessors. They'll propose legislation, it'll get shot down and they'll point fingers.

    What's he going to do about Iraq?
    Afghanistan?
    Illegal immigration?
    US dependence on foreign oil?
    Outsourcing jobs?
    My wallet being raped every payday?
    VA benefits?

    Those are REAL issues that affect REAL people across the board, not just in his church.

    Your point is well made... Originally I thought you excluded him for just that reason...

    I do believe Huckabee has adopted the best and only workable answer for illegal immigration... Every other canidates solution is amnesty once you cut thru the bullshit...

    The Pope was scheduled to give a speech at the Sapienza University in Rome. The students there protested, declaring that "he is hostile to science". A reference was made to a speech that he gave "in 1990, when he was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger" in which he noted: "science has been used in destructive ways".

    SO HAS RELIGION

    I'm glad to hear so many liberals protest against putting "God's standards" into the Constitution….therefore we can assume that liberals would also protest against putting "Secular Progressive standards" and beliefs into the Constitution as well? LOL that'll be the day.

    I am all for States rights. Our Founders fought to preserve their freedom of religion and they practiced those various religions mightily in their various States. The Constitution left those things up to the States. We should continue to leave matters of marriage to the States. This would allow for many different variations of beliefs to exist in State law and everybody would not wind up under the exact same cookie cutter. That's also why I believe there should be no federal Real ID either.

    I don't see Huckabee as some scary evangelical (scary to the SPs - yes:lol:) but he just proved that he's just another big government politician….like the rest of them.
