Huckabee on Homosexuality

Huckabee is a fundie of epic proportions. He is so anti-gay that to elect him would be equivalent to ushering in  a fundie inquisition. American Gays would face four hard years.

In 1997, Huckabee requested an amendment to a state Senate bill stating “that it is Arkansas public policy to prohibit sodomy to protect the traditional family structure.” [Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 1/23/1997]

Huckabee would bring his morality and sense of Christian superiority to the White House. And then.... well, it is not a pretty picture.

Yes that is certainly a cause for alarm.

I certainly do not agree with the part where Huckabee tried to say that homosexual behavior was a choice regardless of a person's natural inclination. Even if it is a choice we can't be so narrow minded and unforgiving, especially if "we're all sinners" like he said.

There is no question that he would be bad for America, probably far worse than any of the alternatives. Electing him would amount to a condoning of intolerance and religiously-based bigotry.
