Three Iowa Republican Senate Candidates Admit They Have no Intention of Obeying the Constitution

…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
     – U.S. Constitution, Art. VI

But, we all know that christianist psychopaths don’t believe that any laws apply to them.

Three out of four Iowa Republican candidates for U.S. Senate said Friday they would block any federal judge appointee who did not have a “biblical view of justice” or follow “natural law” as handed down from God.

The discussion came up at a forum hosted by The Family Leader, an organization that lavished money on a 2010 campaign to oust the Iowa justices who ruled that marriage equality was required by Iowa’s constitution.

When asked by moderator and right-wing commentator Erick Erickson what criteria they would use in confirming federal judges, the candidates tried to one-up each other to emphasize the importance of Biblical law. Sam Clovis, who recently asserted that Obama remains in office solely because Republicans are afraid of impeaching a black president, said any judicial nominees must be able to “explain to me natural law and natural rights.” Matt Whitaker went even farther, specifying that judges must be “people of the faith” with “a biblical view of justice.” State Sen. Joni Ernst stressed that judges must have an “understanding where the Constitution came from and our laws, and they all did come from God.”

The real test should be whether these ‘candidates’ will acknowledge that Bob Vander Plaats’ hair looks like a melted glob of off-black plastic.
