Huckabee's Theocratic Agenda
Mike Huckabee is showing his true colors. This pandering theocrat wants to toss out the separation of state and church, replacing it with an altered U.S. Constitution that enshrines his view of God's standards as the law of the land. He wants to amend it to line the Constitution with the Bible, and obviously is isn't the Catholic or Mormon perspective of that tome.
What theocrats and theocons like the Huckster don't seem to realize is that there is no freedom of religion without freedom from religion. The two go hand in hand, by way of the establishment and free exercise clauses of the First Amendment. This shyster baptist preacher in politicians clothing needs to be kicked to the curb, hard and fast! People like him are not interested in having the freedom to worship as their conscience dictates. No, Huckabee and his followers will not be satisfied until they can dictate that we all follow their religion, or else become second class citizens in our own country.
Huckabee, if you love theocracy, may I suggest you run for President of Iran. You and Ahmadinejad are cut from the same cloth, and it is a moldy, foul, and mildewed cloth at that! You two would get along very well.
