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?
