I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution. But I believe it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that's what we need to do -- to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.Now, first of all, the idea that the Constitution represents "some contemporary view" is pretty goddamn funny--you'll pardon the expression--given the date on the document. I know it's been amended an shit, but day-amn, that shit is fucked up.
En tout cas, as they say in atheistic communistic Europe, what the hell does it mean to "amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards"? Are we seriously going to adopt the 613 commandments as itemized amendments to, or are we just getting rid of the establishment clause? Will we crack down on Catholic idolatry or violations of kashrut? On which days or evenings will we legally enforce the Sabbath? Shall I really suffer the penalty of death for telling Dad he's a jackass for thinking that the Steeler's running game is better served without Willy Parker, even if I agree that Parker is overrated?
Fortunately, neither Huckster nor his congregants has the slightest idea what they're talking about. The bible, to them, is a series of soft-focus tableaux vivants interspersed with an occasional bout of bloodletting to ease the boredom. I can't imagine a rebirth of stocks and stoning under a Huck administration, should such a horror ever come to pass. I'm pretty sure that the only thing he's actually talking about here is an amendment to ban gay marriage. An oldie, as they say, but a goodie.
