Huckabee and the Constitution

Huckabee and the Constitution

I am writing In regard to Anthony Gray’s letter entitled “Huckabee is unfit” (December 19), in which he states that “Mr. Huckabee would be well advised to familiarize himself with the United States Constitution….”

Mr. Gray totally misunderstands our founding document.

While Article VI, paragraph 3, forbids the government from requiring religious tests for office holders, the Constitution does not forbid voters from following Mr. Huckabee’s advice that “the public should fire politicians who do not hear ‘God’s heart.'”

The public fires politicians by voting against them; voters are free to vote for whomever they wish for any motive. Perhaps Mr. Gray is the one who has a “breathtaking ignorance of the Constitution.”
