    Huckabee likens gay marriage to incest, drugs, and polygamy

    Huckabee likens gay marriage to incest, drugs - More politics- msnbc.com

    WASHINGTON - Mike Huckabee, a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012, says the effort to allow gays and lesbians to marry is comparable to legalizing incest, polygamy and drug use.

    Huckabee also told college journalists last week that gay couples should not be permitted to adopt. "Children are not puppies," he said.

    ...

    In response to a 1992 questionnaire from The Associated Press, Huckabee, then a Senate candidate in Arkansas, spelled out his opposition to homosexuality, saying it was crucial that the country not "legitimize immorality."

    "I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle," he wrote, in response to a question about gays in the military.

    He also advocated isolating AIDS patients from the general public, saying it was necessary to confine "carriers of this plague."

    As governor, Huckabee supported an Arkansas policy that prevented same-sex couples from serving as foster parents. On gay marriage, he said in an interview, "Marriage has historically never meant anything other than a man and a woman. It has never meant two men, two women, a man and his pet, or a man and a whole herd of pets."
    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.

    Who cares. I dont agree with a lot of what he said but he will NEVER EVER be the nominee for the GOP.

    He's soft on crime and illegal immigration.


    His gay adoption line was particularly bad.

    But we have no access to his unabridged words. Only the thoughts from someone summarizing them.

    Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee on Tuesday defended his decision to commute the prison sentence years ago of the man who allegedly killed four police officers Sunday near Tacoma, Wash., saying the defendant had received an unfairly harsh sentence because he was young and black.

    ..

    The killings have renewed scrutiny of Huckabee's pardon record, and some prominent conservatives say the episode could be damaging to his candidacy if Huckabee decides to run for president in 2012. Though one of the Republican Party's most popular figures, Huckabee has been dogged by questions over the more than 1,000 commutations and pardons he issued -- more than his three predecessors combined -- during his 10-year tenure.

    Read the last sentence again, and you will see why some consider him soft on crime.
