This story from Think Progress is enough to make your teeth curl. This man claims to be religious and a man of "god" yet he has so much hate and bigotry in him he could be...well..he could be a Repignofascist since those are two of the sterling traits of most members of the "Party of God."
Huckabee is against gay marriage, arguing that “civilization” may not survive if “what marriage and family means” is “rewritten.” As Governor of Arkansas, he “avidly” supported the state amendment banning gay marriage. That wasn’t the only anti-gay public policy Huckabee pushed in Arkansas:Yo Mike. I have a question for you.
– In 1997, Huckabee requested an amendment to a state Senate bill stating “that it is Arkansas public policy to prohibit sodomy to protect the traditional family structure.” [Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 1/23/1997]
– In 1998, Huckabee supported banning gay men and women from acting as foster parents because “it is not in the best interest of children.” [Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 7/29/1998]
– In 2003, Huckabee said “If you ask for survivor benefits to be paid to a same-sex survivor, I think we have a right to say no to that.” [Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 7/3/2003]
What difference does it make if someone is gay, lesbian, transgenered or a caribou? What someone does with their penile extremity and where or in whom they place it is no fucking business of yours or the governments. None, Mike. Please explain to me how any person engaging in homosexual sex is "bad"? As long as the homosexual sex doesn't involve you or any of your orifices what difference does it make. Have you ever had oral sex with your wife? How is you doing that with her any different than a woman doing it with her? If your wife says its o.k. and the other woman says its o.k., then what business do you have making any comments or judgements (However since we know how sex-crazed the bulk of the Repignofascists are, I'm sure you'd like to watch, right, Mike?).
There is one fundamental question that needs to be asked and addressed by you and all the other religious fanatics who think you know "god's word." In the Christian bible (not sure which version - they all are differnt so take your pick) it says that "god" created man in his own image. If we follow religious logic from there as far as "god" being the creator of all things, then its safe to assume that "god" created homosexuals. And if "god" created homosexuals, does this mean that, since they are created in "god's" own image, then "god" is gay? If "god" did and "god" is, then dont you think all your hyperbole is going to get you in more long-term (we're talking eternity) trouble than the value of the few votes you're going to get by bashing gay people in this election campaign?
