Can we call him a theocrat yet?

As well as hating women, gays, and science, Mike Huckabee hates the Constitution:
"I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution," Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. "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."

He doesn't say what exactly that means. One can only assume that God's standards involve what's in the Bible, so there'll have to be constitutional amendments that declare you have to murder your entire family if they ask you to convert; that you have to slaughter an entire town if they let people preach other religions; that you have to murder your children if they're uppity; that if a woman is not a virgin when married you have to kill her; we'll have to repeal the 13th amendment and replace it with the rules God intended us to follow in treating our slaves.

But that's the price we'll have to pay for living in a land of freedom and opportunity.
