Huckabee: Amend Constitution to be in ‘God’s standards’

This to me was very disturbing. I wonder whose version of God Huckabee would like to use. Even among evangelical Christians such as Huckabee there are variations on beliefs. His statements concerning evolution and not knowing how long it took God to create the universe are a prime examples. I have heard some evangelicals criticize others and say that they are not “real Christians” for not taking every word of the Bible literally.

This Country has enough division already and does not need interpretations of the Bible to further divide people. I wonder – does he think women should be quiet in church and submissive to their husbands? Does he think “witches” should be killed? Should we start executing people who work on the Sabbath? Perhaps in this war in Iraq we should tell our soldiers to kill everything/everyone but keep the virgins for themselves? At what point do you stop taking the Bible literally? If his answer is (as I’ve heard many Christians say) “that was the Old Testament” he would be incorrect on some issues (they are indeed New Testament ideas as well). Also there is this other fact that the 10 Commandments are also “Old Testament” so they could be tossed out as well?

To think that this man is so arrogant as to think everyone should be forced to live by his interpretation of his “God’s” will is frightening and unimaginable. People like this would say this is a “Christian Nation” due to the fact that the “Majority” of its citizens are Christian. The same person will claim in a disagreement over interpretation that their opponent is not a “True Christian”, you can’t have it both ways. If they are not true Christians they should not be part of your claim of a majority either. Christianity claims to be “mono-theistic”, but it would appear that there are as many “gods” as there are Christians.

    Well the bible says if god says it’s ok then you’re allowed to do anything. This is why George Bush is justified in his war on Iraq, god consented. I’m waiting for him to say god said it was ok to sacrifice people from Guantanamo Bay to appease the Lord. If so, he’d better save a virgin for me.

    The thing that is most sad and disturbing about these statements and ideas is that it is not just the ignorant who follow suit. In the United States there is a growing percentage of “educated” Christians that, despite their education, choose to remain on track with the “evangelical right”. I think that this is the most disconcerting factor, since they will be taking a larger part in the decision making process that will lead our nation one way or another. Hopefully, one day we may elect an individual who does not claim to be intimately connected to “God” or any other being other than themselves. It also seems sad that the only way that the religious seem to stay on track is if there is a god overseeing their actions, not because they know deep down that one thing is “right” or “wrong”.

    All you athiests are idiots. To deny the existance of a supreme creator is to make self god. But there is a God. This is the condemnation of all you high minded un-believers, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because there deeds were evil. They that doeth the truth come to the light that there deeds may be manifest, that they are wrought in God. Men, the human race that is is so arrogant to dismiss God. It is only so that you don’t have to be accountable to anything but yourself, because if that is all you are accountable to, then everything is justifiable. You all live by relativism, which is this, if you can commit to an act with no ill consequences to yourself the deed is rational or sane and by such interpretation benificial. The opposite would be irrational, which is to say that if the outcome of an action poses negative results to self then the proposed action is irrational or insane. Professing yourselves to be wise you became fools and have changed the Truth of God into a lie, and for this cause God will give you over to your reprobate minds.

    Name calling is so Christian like. Thanks!

    And your proof of this so called “supreme creator” would be? Here is a thought for you, your God is real but is really Satan leading you astray, that would explain the atrocities that are in your holy book committed by your God. Not only a Jealous God but a rather sadistic one as well with a fetish for feces and dung (at least smearing it in people’s faces).

    We as humans are accountable to each other, if you would take the time to get to know an atheist or two you would probably realize that there is generally more moral behavior among atheists than most theists. The reprobate mind that you speak of must be the opposite of the minds of people like Jerry Falwell, Ted Haggard, Fred Phelps, John Hagee, countless pedophile priests and many other immoral loudmouth nuts. Again I thank you.

    Had you been told in your youth that the bible was a fairy tale and that some fairy tale was real I am sure you would be defending the fairy tale that you believed. The bible as proof of a God is about the same as Little Red Riding Hood proving that wolves can in fact speak. There may well be convincing proof of a God that I am unaware of but it is definitely not in the bible.

    i just wanted to say, the subtext of this website is amazing: “Religion in the News, as Viewed from the Moral High Ground of Atheism” — hilarious

    Your points would be more credible if you:
    (1) refrained from name calling
    (2) used correct spelling
    (3) wrote in complete sentences
    (4) offered evidence to support your views
