    Is it wise for Christians to link the survival of Christianity to gay discrimination?

    Huckabee: Gay-Rights Movement 'Won't Stop Until There Are No Churches'

    “It won’t stop until there are no more churches, until there are no more people who are spreading the Gospel,” Huckabee said on a right-wing radio program while discussing the backlash against anti-gay religious-freedom legislation in Arkansas and Indiana.

    "I’m talking now about the unabridged, unapologetic Gospel that is really God’s truth," he said.

    Huckabee made the remarks during an appearance on the conservative Family Research Council radio program “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins."

    If your faith hinges on other people living their lives however they please it isn't a faith worth anyone's time.
    The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.

    The question is a false question. Christianity's survival is not based upon defeating SSM. That is a ludicrous false claim.

    Huckabee is not the spokesperson for Christianity. Just another opportunistic politician seeking a niche following of people to send him money. Nothing else.

    Many Christians, certainly on the conservative side, are linking the survival of Christianity to their ability to discriminate against gays. They need to discriminate against gays in order to be true Christians.

    You aren't falling for that line of crap are you? If they were so concerned they'd be wanting to discriminate against all sinners who wanted to purchase their products or services. Since they only get their panties in a wad over SSM and the LGBT community, it's plain ol' bigotry being trussed up. There's no religious basis for it at all, they prove that all by themselves.

    I think you can if time permits edit and add a poll. Nor sure.
    And the Hucketser is just that and a freak as well.

    I guess it's that pesky Leviticus business.
    On the positive side, this Christian monomaniacal focus on gays allows the rest of us to sin in peace.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    You do know that many Churches are splitting apart due to this- And that includes conservative & some would say Liberal Churches as well.
    I would like to see some numbers on your point?

    It's been a while since Huckabee has announced he wants people to sign one of his petitions to Congress - along with a donation of course. That's his money-making routine. Yes, he uses religion for those personal fund raisers.
