Profiles in Ignorance

Mike Huckabee, speaking on his Fox News show, said, “We don't have a crime problem or a gun problem – or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem. And since we ordered God out of our schools and communities, the military and public conversations, you know, we really shouldn't act so surprised when all hell breaks loose.”

Let Mr. Huckabee explain to the parents of the Newtown innocents that their children died as the result of our refusal to allow Huckabee's private religious belief to be the standard by which our morality and ethics are judged. The man is a simpleton and unfit for any public office.

History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.Thomas Jefferson
