Mike Huckabee Compares Gay Marriage to Drug Addiction, Incest and Polygamy

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Phew! When it comes to rank homophobia, FOX Noise’ personality and rumored GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, hit the conservative trifecta. In an interview with the College of New Jersey journal The Perspective compared gay marriage to drug addiction, incest and, polygamy.

And I quote:

“I think there’s been a real level of being disingenuous on the part of the gay and lesbian community with their goal of civil unions. You don’t go ahead and accommodate every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal. That would be like saying, well, there are a lot of people who like to use drugs, so let’s go ahead and accommodate those who want who use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, so we should accommodate them. Children are not puppies. This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?”

This is not the first time Huckabee attacked gay Americans. In his 1998 book, Kids Who Kill, Huckabee compared homosexuality to necrophilia:

“It is now difficult to keep track of the vast array of publicly endorsed and institutionally supported aberrations—from homosexuality and pedophilia to sadomasochism and necrophilia.”

Mike Huckabee is a dangerous extremist and his radical, ignorant views certainly call into question why he receives a paycheck from FOX Noise?

    Jesus. This is the same clown who as governor, got his fat assed, loser son off after he killed a dog.

    Huckabee is a joke but a dangerous joke.

  2. Robbie says:

    I was so angry when I saw this last night. I nearly hit the roof. Unfortunately he’s not alone. There are a lot of religious nuts on the right who will say homosexuality is an abomination of God and this is The Huckster’s way of doing it.

    He cannot become POTUS in ’12. We can’t let that happen.

  3. Joe in Colorado says:

    If Huckabee is on the GOP’s shortlist for ’12, I think President Obama won’t have any trouble with his reelection bid. I mean, their field is already shaping up to be a freakshow. Romney, Huckabee and Palin are goobers and mainstream Americans won’t cast their vote for them.

  4. feminazi says:

    I haven’t encountered such ridiculously uninformed and uneducated opinions about marriage equality specifically and, gay people generally, since the late 1950’s. Huckabee is stuck in a time warp. No one I know thinks this way today. He’s woefully ignorant and I don’t think he has a chance in hell of being a national political candidate.

  5. Tiny Dancer says:

    What a stupid pinhead.

    People like Huck-a-Bible should be chemically castrated so they can’t have children and pass along their regressive world view.

  6. Michael says:

    Mike Fuckabee is one of the most f**ked up individuals on the Planet! What’s this Idiot doing on TV influencing people? He should be beating himself nearly to death with his bible, and then shoving it up his ass as he dies! And, this piece of EXCREMENT wanted to be Resident! What a Joke! He would have made George W.Bushit look like a genius! Christians… too bad we can’t still feed them to the Lions!

  7. VicoDANIEL says:

    Huckabee appears to spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about gays and probably, gay booty.

    Methinks old Mike may very well be a closet case and due to his age, cultural upbringing and religion, is unable to come out as a proud gay man. Thus the extremely judgmental comments not based in fact.

    This behavior isn’t uncommon among deeply religious men from a particular era. But please don’t think I’m giving him a “pass.” Huckabee, like Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, and, Roy Ashburn, are extremely dangerous and need to be exposed and reigned in.


  8. Brigadoon says:

    Don’t forget South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer who is a conservative Christian and supported an amendment to ban gay marriage in his state. It turns out this bigot and homophobia secretly enjoys sex with men. Preferably having having a cock in his mouth.

  9. Harry says:

    Mike Huckabee is proof brothers and sisters should not marry and have children. He’s a village idiot.

  10. retahyajyajav says:

    What is that expression you use, Christopher?

    “The Ugly Face of Christianity?” I think you wrote it with Huckabee in mind. It’s a perfect fit.

  11. Fran says:

    Huck Huckabee!

    He’s a hateful preacher. An ordained Southern Baptist Minister.

    Huckabee has stated, “Politics are totally directed by worldview. That’s why when people say, ‘We ought to separate politics from religion,’ I say to separate the two is absolutely impossible”.

    With regard to the Constitution & separation of church and state, can we just declare Huckabee unconstitutional ?

    By the way, what the hell does “Children are not puppies.” mean?

  12. And we are the dangerous ones..hummmpttt.
    I wonder at what point what hes says becomes definable HATE speech…For me he crossed that line about two years ago.

    As to his comment ” children are not puppies.” facts of course mean nothing nor does reality…..but it was not a gay couple from his home state of Tennessee but one of his own that packed a seven year old on a plane back to Russia without notifing any one that he was even on the way. She just sent him back!!
    Even puppies get better treatment…..

  13. Pechanga says:

    How often do we see so-called people of faith use their beliefs and their Bible to say vile and ugly things about people with whom they disagree?

    Huckabee is a dreadful excuse for a man of faith.

  14. bradfrmphnx says:

    The Huckster is a shuckster. Hate him. Hate his far right religious agendas. Hate everything he stands for.

    Agree with everyone that Obama won’t have any trouble with re-election with the group that is currently at the top of the wingnut’s list. They will receive their mandatory tea party votes, but Indys like myself won’t be swayed as long as the religious right and The Limburgher control their pea brains.

  15. Chad Lebanon says:

    Where are the Log Cabin Republicans?

    They need to muster some balls and scream from the roof tops about Huckabee’s dumb-ass remarks.

    Oh yeah, Republicans stick together. Even the gay Republicans with shit-for-brains.

  16. JollyRoger says:

    Mike Huckabee is a dangerous extremist and his radical, ignorant views certainly call into question why he receives a paycheck from FOX Noise?

    You just answered your own question.

    There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them.

    And Huck is living, breathing proof that there are people who “believe in incest.” He was obviously spawned by a couple of them.

  17. TOM339 says:

    I long for the return of the Mason-Dixon line.

    We can rename this country: United States of North America and United States of South America.

    People like Huckabee can live in the United States of South America, with its Bible borscht, churches, and televangelists. The rest of us will live in the United States of North America, where all people are treated fairly and yes, gay Americans will be allowed to marry.

  18. JollyRoger says:

    South of the Mason-Dixon line should properly be renamed the Holy Republic of Jesusistan.

    Just sayin’.

  19. Estacada says:

    Huckabee is a southern Baptist asshole.

  20. Bee Dee says:

    How about starting an “OCCUPY WORLD” page . . . please

  21. Bee Dee says:

    Yeh, Hunk-a-Fat is a real piece of work. Like a born over Jerry Falwell. But it’s people like him who really make the Obstructionist party look really pathetic.
