Mike Hucka-bigot: Gays are OK, as Long As They Don't Have Sex

Huckabee: ‘I Don’t Know’ If People Are ‘Born’ Gay, But It’s A ‘Choice’ To Act Gay

On NBC’s Meet The Press this morning, host Tim Russert asked former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee if he believed “people are born gay or choose to be gay?” “I don’t know whether people are born that way,” responded Huckabee, “but one thing I know, that the behavior one practices is a choice.”

Huckabee conceded that “people who are gay say that they’re born that way,” but added that he believed that “how we behave and how we carry out that behavior” is more important.
Watch it:

As ThinkProgress has noted before, Huckabee has a record of using the power of government to discriminate against the choices that gay Americans make in their private lives. As governor of Arkansas, Huckabee pushed to strengthen the state’s anti-sodomy laws in order to “protect the traditional family structure”:

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 is also fervent in his efforts to deny gay men and women the right to choose to marry the ones they love. Recently, he told GQ that “civilization” may not survive if “what marriage and family means” is “rewritten” to allow gay marriage.

Russert also pressed Huckabee on his comparison of homosexuality to necrophilia, which he described as “publicly endorsed and institutionally supported aberrations.” Huckabee claimed that he was not saying they were “equivalent,” but was only “pointing out” that they “are deviations from what has been the traditional concept of sexual behavior.”

Top 10 Moments in Mike Huckabee's Extremism


Dude... being gay is NOT a choice. Why do you insist on living with your 1950's philosophies? Explain why thousands of young gay people end up committing suicide each year because they are what they are and they CAN'T change and the pressure from theological nitwits like yourself become too overwhelming. These people choose death instead of "changing."

Sir, YOU are to be blamed for their deaths for ostracizing them and for being so prejudice.

Ask your buddies Larry Craig or Ted Haggard, who have been forcibly denying themselves of who they are, just to fit into your "pure" society, Mr. Mike Hitlerbee.

Were you born a bigot or is that a choice?

Read this scientific report from the The American Psychiatric Association (APA) who have issued a WARNING against turning from gay to straight. They say that it does not work, and that those who claim to have been changed, when carefully interviewed, either have not changed and they think they did, or they were always straight!

The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, and the National Association of Social Workers, together representing more than 477,000 health and mental health
professionals, have all taken the position that homosexuality is not a mental disorder and thus there is no need for a "cure."

Stop The Hate! Do we need Martin Luther Queen, Jr. to march down to your house and drag your ass out of the closet? Why don't you and your son go out and kill a few more dogs.

See you at The Parliament House when you come down to Orlando, be-otch.
