On the eve of the Michigan Republican primary, held Tuesday, January 15th, candidate Mike Huckabee finally showed his true colors. He called to amend the Constitution so that it would have “God’s standards”.
Here’s what he said:
“[Some of my opponents] do not want to change the Constitution, 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 is to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards.”
Huckabee made this statement before nearly 500 supporters, referring to his vision for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
Often, Huckabee has referred to the need to amend the constitution on these grounds, but never before has he so specifically called for the Constitution to be brought within “God’s standards.” Just exactly what were these standards, we’re not sure, as they are themselves debated amongst religious scholars. At the end of his statement, he asked his supporters to “pray and then work hard, and in that order,” to help him secure a victory in Tuesday’s GOP primary. Apparently, God was not particularly pleased, as Huckabee came in a distant third in the Michigan primary.
