With only a few days before the Iowa caucuses, I thought it a good idea to recap some of the hateful things that Republican frontrunner Mike Huckabee has said about LGBT people.

Homosexuality

I believe to try to legitimize that which is inherently illegitimate would be a disgraceful act of government. I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk.

Marriage

You have to have a basic family structure. There’s never been a civilization that has rewritten what marriage and family means and survived.


Quarantining HIV+ People

It is the first time in the history of civilization in which the carriers of a genuine plague have not been isolated from the general population. This deadly disease, for which there is no cure, is being treated as a civil rights issue instead of the true health crisis it represents.

You can always count on Mike for a laugh! You should go have a few beers with him and see what he thinks about blacks and Jews. I hear it's a laugh riot.*sigh*

not 'hateful', but 'honest' | December 30, 2007 1:41 PM

I don't see where Huckabee said anything 'hateful'? Huckabee takes the same position that all orthodox Christians take, that which is stated in the Bible. What would you expect a minister to believe?

Bill Browning: Why is it that you imply that Huckabee says bad things about blacks and Jews? Because you're trying to identify a sexually deviant lifestyle with a civil rights plight? Good luck with that, my friend. It is obvious to the better portion of the world that 'sex' that involves fecal matter is filthy and vile, and certainly not natural. What does being black or Jewish have to do with any of that? Nice attempt at misdirection, at any rate.

The thing that most people especially Christians forget as far as I understand it any way; with the coming of the Messiah aka Christ the laws of the Old Testament were put away and done with. The Messiah's coming was supposed to have fulfilled all of the prophecies and laws. Therefore unless Christ specifically said in the New Testament being queer was wrong then it's not wrong. But then most Christians have always been the sort to pick what they wanted out of the Bible to apply. Otherwise no one would eat pork, wear anything made of unnatural fibers or even fibers of two different types (these are just a few of the Leviticus laws I can remember right now.

Take what I say with a grain of Salt as I stopped being a Christian at about 14 and may have a few things wrong.

It is obvious to the better portion of the world that 'sex' that involves fecal matter is filthy and vile, and certainly not natural.

So is it filthy and vile if I just j/o with my boyfriend and then he cums all over my chest? Because I really prefer that anyway…

It is funny how he can say these things when one of his friends and closest supporters who grew up with him in Arkansas is "GAY." I didn't support him in the last election because I knew his views.
