Joe the complete and utter idiot whose 15 minutes of fame ended long ago and yet somehow he's still hereSubmitted by sam on Fri, 2009-01-16 13:46.
Which... you know... reminds me of this:
Really, I have nothing to say. No clever, snarky remarks on my part are appropriate here. Just read.
So apparently Republican Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee thinks that it's time to amend the constitution to adhere to what he calls "God's standards". Sound too radical? Can't believe it? Well, hear for yourselves:
If you recall, I have already pointed out that the US wasn't formed as a Christian nation. It's really not something that is debatable, if you simply research and read you'll find it out for yourself.
But the real danger of many Christian conservatives like Huckabee is that they don't care. To them, it doesn't matter that the US was formed to be a nation where religious freedom was fundamental. It doesn't matter to them that there are many people who don't believe what they do. They don't want us to be a nation of many peoples and philosophies united together. Hell, the actual teachings of Christ, you know the ones about love, tolerance, acceptance, and not judging others because we're imperfect ourselves, these things don't matter to them either.
To these modern Christian conservatives it's their way, or nothing. There is no debate, no discussion, and absolutely no compromise.
We are entering very frightening times to be alive and living in America. The current power the US Government poses to covertly engage in domestic surveillance, arrest and detain without warrant, judge or jury, and harshly silence with newly created laws meant to limit free speech, is undeniably Orwellian in scope. Add to this mix the virtual powder-keg that is the growing divide between fundamentalists and the rest of us and it's obvious we need to do everything within our powers to keep people like Huckabee out of the White House.
