Via Jason Pye at The Liberty Papers, Mike Huckabee has a frightening understanding of how a secular, liberty-minded nation should use its government:
Using his selective reading and logic skills, I’ll suggest the 29th Amendment:
The Right of the Firstborn
15 If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons but the firstborn is the son of the wife he does not love, 16 when he wills his property to his sons, he must not give the rights of the firstborn to the son of the wife he loves in preference to his actual firstborn, the son of the wife he does not love. 17 He must acknowledge the son of his unloved wife as the firstborn by giving him a double share of all he has. That son is the first sign of his father’s strength. The right of the firstborn belongs to him.
Polygamy. Yeah, those’ll look good on us when viewed in hindsight by more
heathen enlightened generations in the future. But, no worries. God’s law. Who are we to challenge that?
Mr. Pye makes the same argument I’ve made, that the United States people “are electing a President, not a pastor.” There is no place for this in our political landscape. He has the right to say it, of course, but the only valid response to him should be dismissive shunning of his earthly ambitions by every voter.
