“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.”
I can’t help but wonder which parts of the Bible will be enforced first. Slavery? Submission of women? What style of burqa will be all the rage in the Spring of 2009?
