Hucka-bum Wants a Theocracy...

Really--is anyone surprised? Here are just a few of the--shall we call them "Christian Warrior Strategies"?--I know, "divinely inspired" changes Huckabee would like to see in the United States:

Huckabee says an amendment banning abortion and another banning same-sex marriage "are the two areas I'm talking about. I'm not suggesting that we rewrite the Constitution to reflect tithing or Sunday school attendance."
Oh, okay--but why stop there? I mean, what's next? An anti-divorce amendment? An anti-gambling, anti-drinking, anti-Muslim amendment? Where does it stop? When does "amend[ing] the Constitution so it's in God's standards" become "close enough"? What brand of Christianity should we use? And, if the lie perpetuated by the right-wing is true--that the Founding Fathers were supposedly "pro-God" and "anti-secularism" and wanted to have a Christian Theocracy here in America--why isn't the Constitution already "in line with Biblical standards"? Maybe because none of these things are true?! And, of course, if Huckabee is so sure he speaks for MOST Americans, and that our Constitution somehow needs amended to reflect "most American Christians" values, he should have no problem with Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Ron Paul, or Barak Obama amending the Constitution similarly, right? I mean, they're all Christians, and in Hucka-Lala Land, all Christians in America want abortion illegal and those icky gays to just stop falling in love, am I right?

Of course, Hucka-bum doesn't stop there:

"I think the radical view is to say that we’re going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal. Again, once we change the definition, the door is open to change it again. I think the radical position is to make a change in what’s been historic."
Fundie say what?! Where does this silly false logic come form! I know it isn't in their bible, but it must be a side effect of "spirit movement." I know we've covered this false "slippery slope" crap before, so you can just read this and save me the trouble repeating myself...

Of course, if rewriting the foundation of our country in the name of "moral obligation" wasn't enough ("Save the Fetus's! Save Our Marriage's!!")--and please note, he thinks it is okay to tell people whom to love and whom to have kids or not--he thinks it is NOT okay in--well, here. I'll let him explain it:

"South Carolina people know true conservatism when they see it. You don't like people outside the state telling you how you ought to raise your kids. You don't like people from outside the state telling you what to do with the [Confederate] flag. In fact, if somebody came down to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell 'em where to put the pole."
Ahh... Sounds like something Jesus would have said, doesn't it?
"I'll tell you where to put that cross, Pontius Pilate!!"

So what have we learned here today?
  1. It's okay to demand unwanted children from women
  2. It's okay to dictate human love between genders of consenting adults
  3. It's NOT okay to tell people which flag to fly
In which case, I'll be flying a flag that says "Go to Hell Huckabee!"

After all, I can always tell him where to shove the pole if he doesn't like it... But then again, that maybe be too reminiscent of a homosexual act, wouldn't it?

Well, maybe it isn't so gay when a Christian does it... We'll just ask Ted Haggardy... Or Senator Craig... They could always give advice to Huckabee on how to shove the pole in a compassionate, conservative, Christian way, couldn't they?
