Mike Huckabee and Tom Delay Throw Support Behind Hate Conference That Can't Book A Venue

Mike_Huckabee_by_Gage_Skidmore_2

The World Congress of Families, a noted anti-gay hate group and major opponent of LGBTQ rights, is having a difficult time finding an Australian venue willing to host its annual conference scheduled to commence this upcoming Saturday. While the organization’s 2013 conference was hosted by the Australian Technology Park in Sydney, coordinators for the event have been turned away by four different potential hosts following their being informed of the conference’s purpose.

“Sexual radicals have launched a smear campaign to discredit the Melbourne conference, which misrepresents the international pro-family movement and the positions of the World Congress of Families,” The WCF wrote in an open letter to the country of Australia, pleading for last minute accommodations. Former Republican Majority Leader Tom Delay and Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee have thrown support behind the letter, hoping to appeal to Australia’s conservative population.

“We are frantic at the moment trying to organise something else, we’ve had four venue cancellations. I can’t talk to you because we are just too busy right now,” WCF organizer Margaret Butts told the Guardian Australia. “We have no venue at the moment – the police are telling us it’s a safety risk because of planned protests and demonstrations.”

In addition to not having a proper location to host the conference, the WCF also seems not to have anticipated the need for a security detail or insurance despite reports of protests being organized in opposition to the conference.

“This event is the convening of an extreme-right movement,” said Debbie Brennan, lead organizer for the Melbourne branch of the Radical Women socialist organization. “We will exercise our free speech right to make it as hard as we can for people to get into the congress. Certainly, we will be out there in force and having loud things to say.”

Mike Huckabee at NOM March: Stop Gay Marriage or Face God’s Judgment - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 6.03.28 PM

At the sparsely-attended National Organization for Marriage’s March for Marriage in Washington D.C. today, Mike Huckabee helped close out the hate rally with a bit of fire and brimstone warning for anyone or any government that chooses to support LGBT equality. 

Warned Huckabee:

"There is no doubt in my mind that this country would not exist had it not been for the providential hand of God. And I'm also convinced that if we reject his hand of blessing, we will feel his hand of judgment …and it’s time for us as an American people to say to our own government 'Enough of you restricting us, enough of you redefining our institutions.' We are not under an obligation to defy God in order to obey you. We are under an obligation to obey God and the law and, if necessary, to defy an institution that is out of control."

Mike Huckabee Launches Campaign Against Houston’s Proposed LGBT Non-Discrimination Ordinance

Huckabee

Mike Huckabee is launching an attack on Houston Mayor Annise Parker’s proposed non-discrimination ordinance protecting the city’s public and private employees from discrimination based on their sexual orientation and gender identity, with Huckabee making the baseless assertion that the proposal is “unsafe for women and children.”

Wrote Huckabee on Facebook:

“Contact, either by email or phone, every council member and the mayor, no matter where you live in Houston or in the greater metropolitan area. Respectfully state that voting for this ordinance will take away your rights to live what you believe, will be unsafe for women and children, will adversely impact local businesses, will clog our courts, and will unnecessarily spend our tax dollars. Tell them as an elected representative of the people, you expect them to vote Against This Ordinance.”

And with the ordinance set to receive a vote by the city council today, Huckabee is also planning a rally and press conference outside city hall at noon so that council members pay attention to those who “believe in God’s definition of human sexuality…male and female, and believe in common moral decency.”

Mike Huckabee and Dan Cathy went after Chick-fil-A's Dan Cathy on FOX News program Huckabee over the weekend, reacting to the Chick-fil-A CEO's recent statements that he wants to put the company's anti-gay controversy behind him (even though his personal views haven't changed).

CathySaid Perkins:

"I think we're seeing those in the business community becoming cowards."

Asked Huckabee:

"Why is it that businesses would capitulate to the pressure and demands to just shut up and go away and not say anything when nobody is asking the Left to do that?"

Added Perkins:

"Tolerance is a one-way street for these individuals. What they want to do is force the rest of America not to just to tolerate but to celebrate what they're doing. They want to redefine America...They're doing it in large part because many, even conservative business owners who are fearful of these attacks, are going silent. They're going dark on these issues. They're capitulating. And that's just allowing this group to roll over our freedoms and liberties...What they're wanting to do is silence the vast majority of Americans who disagree with them."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Mike Huckabee Goes After Obama's 'Christian Convictions', Views on Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Ingraham_huckabee

As we reported earlier this week, Mike Huckabee is already back in Iowa banging his drum about marriage, and yesterday he brought his campaign to Laura Ingraham.

The hilarious part: Huckabee still seems to think he's running against Obama, and also still thinks marriage is going to be an issue.

Said Huckabee to Ingraham:

"The position that I hold is the position that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden held in 2008. Barack Obama held it until 2012. And the question now that I'd love to pose to the President is this, 'Mr. President, please explain that when you said in 2008 at the Saddleback Church Forum that you stood for traditional marriage and you did so because you were a Christian and because it's what the Bible taught, please answer. Were you lying then, or are you lying now? Or did the Bible get rewritten. I'm just wanting somebody in the press to answer that honest question....He said it was because of his Christian convictions. Does he have them or does he not?"

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

Huckabee

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."
