    Throw out religion. Science...nature...basics of procreation...facts about percentages of gay HIV/AIDS victims...they ALL stand as a pretty solid indictment on the practice of homosexuality.
    I would have to agree, but also: don't care if someone is gay.

    Perfectly rational to disagree with a lifestyle and also not care that they live it, for this reason I see nothing wrong with what Huckabee said.

    Though, ultimately, why make these comments; they serve to do nothing but hurt gay people, if he actually believed Jesus words he would be seeking a way to help bring them out of that lifestyle and not condemning them for it.

    It isnt like he nis advocating they NOT be allowed to practice their lifestyle choice. He just believes it is wrong. and heres a news flash..>MOST people do.

    Ive asked this question of liberals in numerous forums...how many people WANT their sons to come home and announce they are gay? I get the same lame-ass response every time..."I just want them to be happy" Well...thats not exactly the same ****ing thing, is it. If your son gets engaged or is about to have a baby a man walks into a bar and shouts "Line em up!!! My boy is getting married!" If a man (or woman) finds out their son is gay how many rush down to the bar and loud and proud proclaim "its a banner day, boys! I just found out my son sucks cock!" Answer? You KNOW the answer. Oh...they will say ALL the 'right' things and even MEAN them...I would too. I love you...I want for your happiness...you are always my son...I will love you unconditionally and yes, even your partner...but...right? Nope...sorry.

    Many people ACCEPT others...their choices...as consenting adults...even though we disagree with their lifestyle and choices. There is no disrespect. Point of fact...I couldnt care less if you paid me to. But...if you then push this as a ballot issue on right or wrong, I, like Mike Huckabee, have no problem stating I believe it is wrong. Fine for them...but no plan to endorse change in marital and family definition for the action.
    So if most people believe it's wrong, it's alright?
    What I've been trying to say is not if he is right or wrong in what he believes, but how he expresses this. It's like the difference between saying: I don't like chocolate, and saying: Chocolate will cause you to have sex with your little sister. Is this stating you don't like it, or pointlessly insulting it?

    All I want from Huckabee is to have a bit of respect to gay marriage. He obviously isn't showing it.

    Awful lot of people give lip service the whole right and wrong thing. And shame on you foer voting for a bigot like Obama who uses something like religous belief to determine whether or not he should accept gay marriage. Why...that makes him as bad as...Huckabee.

    He doesn't disrespect it, he disagrees with it. Obama disagrees with it, too. Personally, I think they're wrong, but what does it matter?

    Marriage is not in the purview of the federal government anyway. I'd never base a vote on anyone running for federal office on the issue of gay marriage.

    Shame on me?

    Have I ever called someone a bigot for opposing gay marriage?

    Why the hell would you EXPECT that? If you said "All I want is respect for me as a person who HAPPENS to be gay" Id bet you probably already have that.

    He was asked the questions in a questionaire. And Im sure he has been asked similar questions or bneen asked to adress them in church. And as a governor and potential candidate Id expect he is going to be asked them again. I highly doubt he was rolling around in the Mike Huckabee Greyhound Bash Gays tourbus...he was asked a question...he gave an honest answer. Unfortunately we have a lot of bigoted and intolerent people that cant respect opposition beliefs. Which is why this thread was started in the first place.

    I don't have any positions that disagree with the first amendment. The focus in this thread however is a supposed "Christian" position of some people thinking others are deserving of lesser rights.

    Huckabee has attempted to maintain an image of a man who, while being opposed to gay marriage, is not a homophobe; however, given the recent statements by the former Republican Presidential candidate, this brings his opinion into question. If he is not a homophobe, why the attempt to demonize homosexuality in comparison with something as universally immoral as incest? Given this and his other declarations, it is clear that our good Governor Huckabee has neglected to read the vast majority of unbiased, scientific studies which conclude that homosexuality is psychologically sound, making him not only ignorant of the facts, but perhaps a little more homophobic than he would like to admit.
    He's a right wing conserv-a-bigot. He is running on the conserv-a-bigot ticket so he has to play by their conserv-a-bigot rules.

    Basically, he's allowing right wing christian-nazis to make his rules for him. The right has always had a serious problem with the concept of the seperation of their religion and the government. For this reason, none of them are suitable to hold office.

    Until they figure out that their relgion is NOT the law of the land, they are not suitable for office and should be auto-banned.
