Mike Huckabee Tells Iowa Crowd: 'I'm Not Homophobic', Just on 'the Right Side of the Bible' - VIDEO


Mike Huckabee spoke to the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition yesterday and blasted the "Extreme Court" for letting stand the decision by a lower court against a New Mexico photographer who refused to shoot the commitment ceremony for a gay couple.

Said Huckabee:

"Why is it that Christians stand back and take it in the teeth time and time and time again? But we cannot change this country if we do not rise up and vote with an informed mind and a committed spirit and if we're not willing to stand along."

Added Huckabee:

"I'm not against anybody. I'm really not. I'm not a hater. I'm not homophobic. I honestly don't care what people do personally in their individual lives...But … when people say, 'Why don't you just kind of get on the right side of history?' I said, 'You've got to understand, this for me is not about the right side or the wrong side of history, this is the right side of the Bible, and unless God rewrites it, edits it, sends it down with his signature on it, it's not my book to change.' Folks, that's why I stand where I stand."

  1. It is a constant source of amazement to me how pinheads like Huckleberry have a voice in this society. It's also funny how he is speaking to an organization that has the words "faith" and "freedom" in their name. Making the USA into a theocracy will take away the true meaning and the utilization of both concepts.

  3. A typical Christianist making a typically stupid Christianist statement about NOT being homophobic but instead being on the far, far, far right side of his Christianist Bible. There probably was no greater BS emanating from the ancient Tower of Babel than out of the mouths of Huckabee and his fellow Babel-rousers.

  4. I'm sure there are a lot of Christians who view Huckabee as being "to the right" of the Bible!

  5. He knows that God didn't actually write the bible, right? It was written by men and women who lived in a time where faith and belief were often the only tools one had to survive. So his comment about God rewriting it, editing, signing etc... that never happened. I won't even get started on the "lost in translation" argument.

  6. Some of his best friends are gay.... and Jewish.... and African-American... and so on.

  7. To point out once again that Huckabee is a moron and a hypocrite is unnecessary. He's not on the "right side" of his book of fairy tales and fantasy, he's just another "cafeteria christian" that picks and chooses what the "right side" of the Bible is for him, at this time.

    Huckabee is a verifiable liar and crook. Why did he feel it necessary to destroy the hard drives of his administrations computers when he left office? If this guy ever seriously ran for president (as a nominee, not one of the GOP's clown car occupants) people would get a much clearer picture of what this turd is.

    He's a crappy preacher, terrible father, dishonest governor and a Biblical hypocrite. He may be on the "right" side of the Bible, but like most Republicans he's a bigot and he's on the wrong side of history.

  8. And which Bible would that be? There are so many! You've got the Hebrew and Greek old style, the Dead Sea scroll variations, the known mistranslations into Latin, the various English versions, those favored by Quakers, Protestants, Mormons, Catholics. Maybe Huckleberry could put out a version that he personally has vetted.

    Yeah, the Standard Huckleberry Bible. Available in book stores and on-line. Get it before the ink dries.

    Are people in Iowa smart enough to be offended?

  9. If we cannot change the scripture then I guess we cannot translate it either. Lets hear "Mike Wannabee" quote that stuff to us in the original language -- you know, the one god wrote it in... Like so many wannabee Xtians, he uses the bible rather like a drunk uses a lamppost; more for support than for illumination.

  10. Numbers 22:28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

    Seems that the "Lord" has opened up another asses mouth. Why is it god only talks to stupid people?

  11. RE: “and unless God rewrites it, edits it, sends it down with his signature on it, it's not my book to change”

    God did NOT write, edit, or sign the Bible in the first place. Huckabee is just another arrogant elitist Christian pushing is agenda of hate and deception so Christians can destroy the lives of innocent Gays.

  12. None so blind as those who will not see. Huckleberry is punching his martyr card again, doesn't hate anybody, not his fault, can't contradict the Buy-bull. What a waste of oxygen.

    Posted by: Onnyjay | Apr 9, 2014 9:51:30 AM

  13. more importantly, god didn't translate the bible into english.

    i'm not anti-religious, i'm just on the right side of love.

  14. Iowa went for Obama in 2012. His message is more appropriate for one of those hater states like Arizona or Mississippi.

  15. God wrote The Bible?
    I think it's the other way around.

  16. Does he eat bacon with his eggs? Does he have Ham on Easter? Inquiring minds want to know, since they are 'swine' and to eat 'swine' is an abomination (according to Leviticus).

  17. Dear Huckabee,
    We don't care what your particular 'one book' says. We are not interested in any of the one book creeds, all of which seem to suggest that their one books have the total sum of truth....(even with flying angels and mysterious disembodied hands writing on walls. What were those guys smoking ?)

    And you don't even seem to have read the stories of your own one-book; Jonathan and David; Naomi and Ruth; Jesus and John.
    You've had more than your 15 min. of fame Huck.
    The People.

  18. He is on the selective side of his version of the bible. Not on the right side of anything.

    Posted by: mike | Apr 9, 2014 10:13:03 AM

  19. " and unless God rewrites it, edits it, sends it down with his signature on it, it's not my book to change."

    Uh...can he show us were his god's signature appears on what he is using now?

  20. "Why is it that Christians stand back and take it in the teeth time and time and time again? "

    WHY, Mikey? Because Jesus commanded you to turn the other cheek. You're SUPPOSED to take it. Unless you're saying that you really don't believe in what Jesus said. It's *YOUR* beliefs, not mine, so stop complaining about beliefs *YOU* choose to have and aren't born with.

  21. "where" - not "were"

    Time to get an edit feature in the comments section! :-)

  22. One day he will have to explain a tryst with a rent boy. Until then, let him live in his Wrong Side Of History world.

  23. I want to live like Jesus... you know, remain childless, avoid marrying a woman, hang out with a bunch of guys all the time for years, and occasionally consort with hookers. I can do without the whole sacrifice thing, though. Never been into bloodsports.

    Posted by: sparks | Apr 9, 2014 10:33:53 AM

  24. So what he's saying is......slavery was ok.

  25. Anyone who feels compelled to tell you what they're not... that's what they are.
