Mike Huckabee Thinks You’re a Threat to Civilization

December 6, 2007 at 9:26 am 7 comments

Surging Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that he believes gay marriage is a threat to civilization. Yep, he believes that two men or two woman who want to live together, build a life together in sickness and in health, share mortgage payments, argue over who’s turn it is to do the dishes are strong enough to bring down the entirety of human civilization.

And this is the person who is rising in the polls in the Republican primary election?

From Gay News Watch:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who has enjoyed a surge in recent Republican primary polls, says in an interview with GQ that gay marriage is a threat to civilization itself and civil unions are not an acceptable alternative. “You have to have a basic family structure. There’s never been a civilization that has rewritten what marriage and family means and survived,” said Huckabee, who has pulled into the lead in some Iowa polls and second place nationally.

“So there is a sense in which, you know, it’s one thing to say if people want to live a different way, that’s their business. But when you want to redefine what family means or what marriage means, then that’s an issue that should require some serious and significant debate in the public square.”

Huckabee scoffed at the claim that gay couples need legal recognition to visit one another in hospitals and nursing homes, saying that was achievable through power of attorney documents.

He also rejected civil unions for same-sex couples, calling them a “precursor to marriage.”

“Once the government says this relationship is in essence similar to or equal to a marriage — we’re not going to call it that, but that’s what it is — and you grant it the same basic rights as marriage, then you’ve effectively done it,” said Huckabee, who is an ordained Baptist minister and a growing favorite among the GOP’s evangelical base.

    Huckabee would be a threat to any thing at all resembling civilization in this country . That Christian leader stuff is out of the box, we are a democracy dammit, not a theocracy. Neither he nor mitmo is has anything even close to the understanding that JFK did about the seperation of church and state and relationship of one’s faith to governance. Fortunately , i do not think he will carry the majority if he should end up as their candidate..either one of em. Heaven help us all , if they did. Wingnuts can’t live with em, can’t K** em.
