Southern baptist minister and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee ignores science claiming that bible based traditional marriage is the only suitable environment for raising children. Huckabee is promoting violence and discrimination against the Gay and Lesbian community by failing to mention the numerous studies which show that Gays and Lesbians are actually BETTER parents than christian sanctioned traditional married couples.
Huckabee also compares the American Gay and Lesbian community to drug addicts and says that we beat puppies.
He continues to oppose any government recognition of same-sex relationships. Even civil unions are “not necessary,” Huckabee said. “I think there’s been a real level of being disingenuous on the part of the gay and lesbian community with their goal of civil unions,” he alleged, referring to LGBT activists who first claimed that their goal in several states was to enact civil unions, but subsequently launched efforts to implement full marriage rights.
Huckabee went on to draw parallels between homosexuality and other lifestyles that are considered by some to be morally aberrant. “You don’t go ahead and accommodate every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal,” he said of same-sex marriage. “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 who 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.”
He also affirmed support for a law in Arkansas that prohibits same-sex couples from becoming adoptive or foster parents. “I think this is not about trying to create statements for people who want to change the basic fundamental definitions of family,” Huckabee said. “And always we should act in the best interest of the children, not in the seeming interest of the adults.”
“Children are not puppies,” he continued. “This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?”
This christian freak was was the Governor of Arkansas and very nearly the Republican presidential candidate in 2008. America is not a theocracy and this type of christian hate cannot be allowed.
