Calls Gay Community “Disingenuous,” Says “Children Are Not Puppies”
Mike Huckabee, ordained Southern Baptist Minister, Fox News host, perennial Republican presidential hopeful, compared legalizing gay marriage to legalizing incest, polygamy, and drug use, and called all of those outside of “the ideal” in a discussion at a New Jersey college.
“You don’t go ahead and accommodate every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal,” he said. “That would be like saying, well, there are a lot of people who like to use drugs, so let’s go ahead and accommodate those who want to use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, so we should accommodate them.” Huckabee said civil unions are “not necessary.”
“I don’t have to prove that marriage is a man and a woman in a relationship for life… They have to prove that two men can have an equally definable relationship called marriage, and somehow that that can mean the same thing.”
Huckabee, whose daughter used to manage, “HuckPAC,” his political action committee, is obviously greasing the wheels, and trying to grease his coffers for his attempt at the 2012 election.
Here’s the list of everything Mike Huckabee has recently said he’s against.
- marriage equality
- changing the traditional definition of marriage
- adoption of children by same-sex couples
- civil unions for same-sex couples
- gay rights in general
- repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
- Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health-care plan
- Mitt Romney
- RNC Chair Michael Steele
- Repealing DOMA
- Separating politics from religion
Huckabee has also said he wants to “isolate” HIV/AIDS victims.
Does anyone remember Mike Huckabee being for anything?
Lastly, remember this choice quote from Minister Huckabee:
“I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that’s what we need to do — 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.” (“Huckabee: Ban Gays, Free Murderers And Rapists“)
