Theocracy on the installment plan.

If there is any question as to how dangerous Hillbilly Huckabee is he has put those questions to rest. He is dangerous -- Constitutionally lethal. Huckabee gave an interview on how he plans to impose his antiquated theology on the country. His goal is to impose theocracy.

He wants Constitutional amendments to bring the Constitution into line with his fundamentalist authoritarianism. In particular he wishes to ban abortion and to nationalize marriage. At the same time Huckabee is demanding that Biblical mandates be imposed on the entire country by force he shows he has little understanding of the Bible itself -- typical fundamentalist.

For instance, Huckabee claims that the Biblical definition of marriage shouldn´t be changed in any way. Really? He claimed: "Marriage has historically, as long as there´s been human history, meant a man and a woman in a relationship for life."

Apparently Rev. Huck hasn´t read his Old Testament for a while since he´s pretending there was no polygamy. Yet the number of polygamous marriages in the Old Testament are legion. So either Rev.Huckabee is ignorant about the Bible or he´s lying.

Rev. Huck says that, at this time, he isn´t pushing to amend the Constitution on other issues. Right now, he wants theocracy on these two issues because they "talked about in the political realm.¨ Apparently if other issues become political fodder later on then Rev. Huck would be open to resolving those issues using his theology.

He says that because some states have civil unions for gay couples then the federal government must nationalize marriage. But if the states obey the Bible then there is no need for federal intervention. In other words, if the states impose Huckabee´s Biblical views then ought to be free to control such matters. If they don´t do this then the Constitution ought to be amended to force all states into compliance with Scripture.
