How Religion Poisons Everything

So Mike Huckabee, who in last years Republican debate said of the seperation of church and state:

"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 thats what we need to do is amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than trying to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view of how we treat each other and how we treat the family."

Takes your breath away don't it?

On a religious extremist-sponsored trip to the west bank Mr. Huckabee went to the right of the democrats, republicans, US public, UN, the entire international community, and even conservative Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, and declared a two state solution "unrealistic".

Anyone saying this is simply a territorial dispute, and that religion does not cause unnecessary violence and tribalism is WRONG. Huckabee, following in the digusting tradition of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and other inflammatory Jesus freaks, is continuing to drive a wedge between Israelis and Palestinians in order to ensure that the Jews are all in Israel when Jesus comes back. Of course, when he does come back, he will kill them all and send them screaming and crying into hell. Mike Huckabee, the blood is on your hands.
