Mike Huckabee Scares The Crap Out Of Me

by Jeff Dinelli

Mike Huckabee was closing his usual stump speech last night in Warren, Michigan -- namely, by scaring the audience with tales of evil immigrants and the wrath of God -- when he got really specific about the latter:

"[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 said, referring to the need for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Huckabee often refers to the need to amend the constitution on these grounds, but he has never so specifically called for the Constitution to be brought within "God's standards," which are themselves debated amongst religious scholars. As a closing statement he asked the room of nearly 500 supporters to "pray and then work hard, and in that order," to help him secure a victory in Tuesday's GOP primary.

If I'm reading this right, he's calling for outlawing abortion and gay marriage by changing the Constitution, because if we don't, the Constitution would be going against God's rules.

Ok, I don't care how nice the guy seems on Bill Maher and the Colbert Report. This is a lunatic who is obviously living in the wrong country.

Update: See the video, or at least listen to the audio, it's not a real tight shot. It's a chilling thing to hear. Thanks Turkana and especially Magnifico at Docudharma via Mercuryx23.
