Mike Huckabee: Gay Marriage Threatens 'The Foundation Of Our Society And Culture' - VIDEO

Huck

Former Arkansas Governor and likely 2016 Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has been on a tour of Europe entitled “Reagan, Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II Tour: God Raising Extraordinary Leaders for Extraordinary Times.” As hate-monger Matt Barber notes, Huckabee invited "evangelical pastors from the states of New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina, and Nevada on special 10-day tour of Europe... to study the lives of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul II  and understand how these three individuals were 'used by God to change the world’s history.'" So essentially, this is the Grand Tour re-imagined for right-wing wing-nuts.

Huckabee's final stop on this tour was to Auschwitz and Birkenau, which, as The New Civil Rights Movement points out, provided Huckabee the perfect opportunity to compare Nazi Germany and present day America. The horror that was Hitler's Germany was the natural by-product of "systematically [removing God and religion] from their culture and their society." Drawing a parallel to America, Huckabee said, "The soul of America is a sick soul... because it has forsaken and forgotten its God." How exactly has America forsaken and forgotten its God? By providing equality to the gays, of course:

"The foundation of our society and culture, marriage, not only by which we produce the next generation but it is the entity through which God has chosen for us to create the next generation and train them to be our replacements, and when we tinker with its definition and we decide that it can mean anything we wish for it to mean and that rather than to take a biblical perspective we will take a very human one and we will base marriage on human experience and desire as opposed to biblical standard, then I fear that we will pay the consequences for having upended the very foundation which is the essence of how a civilization survives. So the soul of America is in real trouble."

Governor Huckabee has obviously not seen how Biblical arguments against same-sex marriage and homosexuality can rather easily be debunked. 

The Arkansan seems hell-bent on continuing to prove worthy of Megyn Kelly's special pet moniker for him. Well done, Governor.

Houston

The right-wing freak out over subpoenas sent to Houston area pastors for "all speeches, presentations, or sermons related to HERO, the Petition, Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality, or gender identity prepared by, delivered by, revised by, or approved by you or in your possession" is set to continue via live telecast next Sunday as anti-gay leaders and organizations from across the country join together to "stand with these pastors and stand against the radical agenda sweeping our nation."

Those participating in "I Stand Sunday" include would-be HGTV stars David and Jason Benham, Mike Huckabee, hate leader Tony Perkins, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, Rick Scarborough, Fox News' Todd Starnes, Christian litigation group Alliance Defending Freedom, National Organization for Marriage, and others.

Mike Huckabee Wants to Send Houston Mayor 'Thousands' of Bibles to Stop Her 'Political Genocide' Against Christians: VIDEO

Huckabee

Continuing the right-wing uproar over Houston's subpoena of local anti-gay pastors tied to a lawsuit against the city's LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination ordinance, Mike Huckabee directed "every pastor in America" to send their sermons to mayor Annise Parker and every viewer to send her a Bible. 

Said Huckabee on his Fox News program:

The Houston case reminds us how rapidly our country is being taken over by intolerant despots who will unleash a form of political genocide against Christians who still cling to their Bibles and refuse to bow their knee to the false gods of hate and religious bigotry. The Houston mayor and her ilk, like mayors in Chicago and Boston who tried to prevent businesses opening in their city because the business owners were bible believing Christians, well she needs to apologize and start respecting all citizens - or at least have the integrity to resign. They shouldn't expect taxpayers to fund hate-filled, gestapo-like tactics to openly attempt ot shut down the free exercise of religion and attempt to establish a religion of godless secularism.

Mike Huckabee Is 'Utterly Disgusted' With Republicans, Calls on GOP to 'Grow a Spine' And Oppose Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Huckabee4

He's not letting the GOP's tepid response to the SCOTUS gay marriage decision go just yet.

Said Huckabee on his Fox News program Saturday:

"I'm utterly disgusted with fellow Republicans who want to walk away from the issue of judicial supremacy just because it's politically volatile. Here's my advice - grow a spine! Show a modicum of knowledge about the way we govern ourselves. And lead, follow, or get the heck out of the way."

The cry of "judicial supremacy," coming from the same guy who said it was a "good day for freedom" when the Supreme Court gave corporations more religious freedom than taxpayers

NOM Echoes Mike Huckabee's Threat to Leave the GOP Over It's Non-Response to the SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision

Joining the chorus of anti-gay, right-wing voices enraged at the Republican Party's largely non-existent response to Monday's Supreme Court gay marriage decision, NOM President Brian Brown is now backing up Mike Huckabee's threat to abandon the GOP.

Said Brown:

Brown"We are grateful for those leaders who have spoken out to condemn the Supreme Court for their unprincipled and outrageous decision to allow the redefinition of marriage to occur in these states. We are prepared to work tirelessly to support them and others who lead in the fight to preserve marriage. But Governor Huckabee is right. If more Republican leaders do not speak up and join the fight, then millions of conservatives will abandon them and join with officials who will fight. Marriage is on the line in our country, and it's time for people to get off the bench and into the battle."

Brown went on to criticize House Speaker John Boehner and the National Republican Campaign Committee for throwing their support behind openly GOP congressional candidates Carl DeMaio and Richard Tisei.
