Christian Right leaders generally insist that the Constitution isn't a secular document, and that separation of church and state, as Pat Robertson inimitably put it "is a lie of the Left and we are not going to take it anymore." Well, Mike Huckabee disagrees. He thinks the Constitution is an artifact of heathenism. Fortunately, the Huckster intends to do something about our founders' moral laxity:

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 is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards.

Non-Christian Right apologists for the Christian Right often complain that charges of theocracy and coinages like "Christianism" are simplistic and unfair. This epistle would seem to resolve the matter, at least as far as Huckabee is concerned, would it not?
