Huck Meets the Constitution

Print More

I’m afraid this is must-see TV. Reactions all over the place, but this, from National Review‘s Lisa Schiffren, is of particular note.

What about rendering unto Ceaser that which is Ceaser’s, and unto God that which is God’s? Mike Huckabee is going to force those of us who have wanted more religion in the town square to reexamine the merits of strict separation of church and state. He is the best advertisement ever for the ACLU. Even if you share his ultimate views on the definition of marriage, or the desirability of abortion on demand.

Between the Romney and the Huckabee candidacies, establishment conservatives are indeed being forced to rethink their facile assaults on the putatively naked public square. Somewhere the framers are smiling.
