Mike Huckabee, a fundamentalist Christian who has his regular talk show on FOX News, has taken time out of explaining how school killings are due to the lack of God, to enlighten us on the real problem within the GOP. They might be ok with being gay. Huckabee was joined by crazy man Tony Perkins who heads the bitchy Family Research Council (FRC) and soon to be forgotten Gary Bauer who main goal in life is to make gays second class citizens with his National Organization for Marriage (NOM).
The threat made by all 3 men is that if the Republican party for some reason accepts homosexuals for the dastardly sin of making their own individual choices, that they will leave the GOP and form a new party, a 3rd party for evangelical Christians to feel confident about. I say go ahead, see how that works.
They may not like to admit it, but there is a rise in non-religious views in this country and the religious views are literally dying off with the older generation that holds onto them. People like Pat Robertson or even Mike Huckabee have much less power than they would have 30 years ago. The current generation, my generation, is far less interested in religious persecution and zealotry compared to who tunes into Huckabee or who does free labor for the FRC.
These same people bitch and moan about Barack Obama and the government having too much power, then want to use the government to segregate a group of people that they religious dislike and view as sinful. Mind you they do not view their excess income or lack of “loving thy neighbor” as sinful because remember that Jesus loved everyone… except those damned fags. They act as if they are different from the Westboro Baptist Church when in fact, they are just a watered down version. At least the WBC has the balls to be front and center about their assho0le beliefs.
Huckabee claims it isn’t out of homophobia or anti-homosexual beliefs, “And it’s not because there’s an anti-homosexual mood, and nobody’s homophobic that I know of, but many of us, and I would consider myself included, base our standards not on the latest Washington Post poll, but on an objective standard, not a subjective standard.” But if we think for a minute, what does he mean by a subjective standard? Again, he needs to remember that his religion, no matter how right or wrong it is, cannot be written into American law. It is strictly forbidden for the reason of overly religious peoples attempting to create a theocracy of intolerance. Huckabee tries to hide behind law and terminology, but what he really is, is full of bullshit.
Like I have said plenty of times, gay marriage will become fully legal in this country eventually. It is legal in many other countries and with America, as the self proclaimed beacon of freedom, it will legalize same sex rights. So go ahead 3 amigos of hate, make your own political party. Screw the Republican party and show them how you feel. All you will do is increase wins for the Democrats in states they have no real chance of winning usually. You can trot out your presidential nominee and watch them lose badly because unlike you, most of America is tolerating of people who are different. Enjoy 1957 for as long as you can and feel free to bitch about those damn coloreds marrying whites too, because most of you bitched about interracial marriage as well.
