Following on my last entry, via The Liberty Papers, I see that Mike Huckabee is spinning (video here):
On last night’s Hannity & Colmes, Colmes cited Huckabee’s quote about changing the Constitution and said, “That makes people a little worried. It sounds like you’re looking to have a theocratic state when you make statements like that, talking about changing the Constitution in keeping with your view of God.”
Huckabee responded, “Not at all. On two things. The context is two things: Human life amendment, which I support and which has been in the Republican platform since 1980. And, by the way, Fred Thompson doesn’t support it. Nor does John McCain. And yet it’s part of our platform. And it’s a very important part of our platform to say that human life is something we’re going to stand for. And the second thing is traditional marriage. So those are the two areas in which I’m talking about. I’m not suggesting that we rewrite the Constitution to reflect tithing or Sunday school attendance. I want to make that very clear… Except for you, Alan. I think maybe you should, maybe you should obey those things.”
Colmes said drily, “Well, thank you for the suggestion.”
Does he really think we’re all that stupid? He didn’t make a mistake in saying what he really meant. He said it with the right words. He’s just not happy he got called on his anti-American, anti-Constitution crap.
But I’ll take him at his revised word, if only temporarily, in order to demonstrate exactly why he’s using selective interpretations of the Bible because he is a bigoted fraud more interested in his codifying his bigotry than in hiding his lying. Remember the Bible passage I quoted in my last entry:
If a man has two wives, …
That is a statement of fact, not a refutation of the idea that a man may have two wives. Will Huckabee’s proposed amendment in order to keep consistent with his God’s law include a provision legalizing polygamy in the United States?
Mike Huckabee is a bigot and a liar. (The two flaws have a “strange” habit of appearing in the same person. Interesting.)
