Huckabee needs to remember something

Mike Huckabee wants to get rid of part of the First Amendment of the Constitution:

“I believe it is a lot easier to change the Constitution than it is to change the Word of the Living God. And that’s what we need to do, is to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards, rather than try 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.”

The First Amendment says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Obviously Mr. Huckabee doesn’t mean any “God” but the Protestant Christian version. Thus by amending the Constitution, Mr. Huckabee would be nullifying one part of the First Amendment. What would be next? Freedom of Speech? Press?
