also affirmed support for a law in Arkansas that prohibits same-sex couples
from becoming adoptive or foster parents. -I think this is not about trying to
create statements for people who want to change the basic fundamental
definitions of family,” Huckabee said. -And always we should act in the best
interest of the children, not in the seeming interest of the adults.”
not puppies,” he continued. -This is not a time to see if we can experiment and
find out, how does this work?” http://tcnjperspective.wordpress.com/2010/04/09/huckabee-rips-steele-romney-lgbt-activists-4/
Okay, first off, that is awesome that Arkansas has so many foster and adoptive parents that they simply do not need
anymore. Wow! So, there is not a single child in Arkansas
that does not have a safe and loving home?
Amazing! Good for you, Arkansas!
Hmm, -best interest of the children, not the seeming interest of the adults.” Wow, that one is a stumper. I guess in Arkansas, the -best interest of
the children” is to remain parentless, if the only parents available are gay or
lesbian. Oh, wait! There ARE no available children in Arkansas,
remember? And, those great heterosexuals
who took them in have no -seeming interest” in them, I guess. Wow, I wonder how they get them to fill out
the forms with so little interest?
I do not understand the puppies comment, though. Are puppies being experimented on in
Arkansas? To find out -how they
work?” Huh. I thought Arkansas was a little more advanced
than that, but apparently not.
to oppose any government recognition of same-sex relationships. Even civil
unions are -not necessary,” Huckabee said. -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,” he alleged, referring to LGBT activists who first
claimed that their goal in several states was to enact civil unions, but
subsequently launched efforts to implement full marriage rights.
on to draw parallels between homosexuality and other lifestyles that are
considered by some to be morally aberrant. -You don’t go ahead and accommodate
every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal,” he said of same-sex
marriage. -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.”
-Disingenuous?” Well, sure, since we all know that LGBT activists work on a
kind of -collective consciousness” and all think the same way. Surely every single one agreed to this in the
beginning and none of them were allowed to change their minds (including the
ones that were born later). I am sure none of them wanted marriage ever and if
they did, they should have spoken to Mr. Huckabee about it first.
And, of course there are parallels between being gay and taking drugs! I mean, just the other day, I heard this
lesbian saying that she was going down to the store to pick up some milk. Milk!
Who does she think she’s kidding?
I’ve seen Fox News. They think up
all these innocuous names for these drugs and they think we don’t know. Oh, we
And incest and polygamy? Oh, I am sure that no one in the Bible ever committed incest or polygamy, but
if they did, I am sure that God smote them immediately, right? Well, maybe not, since they all happened to
be heterosexuals. (I think God might be
a wee bit confused on this issue, personally.)
Huckabee, a former Baptist preacher, remains in favor of
keeping in place âDon’t Ask Don’t Tell,’ the policy that requires the military
to expel openly gay service members. -I wouldn’t support a repeal if I were
commander-in-chief,” he said. -You don’t see foot soldiers out there demanding
it. I’m not sure that’s the most important thing we ought to be doing for the
-[âDon’t Ask Don’t Tell’] touches an extraordinarily small
group of people,” Huckabee continued. He dismissed calls to amend the policy as
-primarily a posturing point for political purposes,” and an attempt to -force
something on the military that they themselves haven’t pushed that hard.”
-I think we certainly
should be very sensitive to the fact that the purpose of the military is not to
see if we can create social experiments,” Huckabee warned.
So true. Because a repeal of DADT would be such a slap
in the face to all of those soldiers who died for liberty, for freedom, for
equality. What good is equality if you can’t deny it from people? Especially such an -extraordinarily small
group of people.”
Besides, we would never experiment with the troops. Nope, the troops are the same as they’ve
always been and no changes have ever been successful. To ever suggest that allowing trained Arabic
linguists be allowed to serve, even if they are gay, would certainly be a
-posturing point for political purposes”, right? I mean, what would we ever need Arabic
linguists for, right?
As for the soldiers demanding it,
well, I suppose after they are discharged, they are not technically soldiers
anymore, are they? Besides, aren’t they
all supposed to do what they are told anyway?
By their leaders? Out of
curiosity, Mr. Huckabee, are we supposed to be listening to the leaders or the
soldiers? Or is it just whoever is
giving you the answer you want?
I just still can’t believe you
compared the children of Arkansas to puppies.
