Mike Huckabee Threatens to Leave the GOP Over Its Non-Response to the SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision: VIDEO

Huckabee

Former Arkansas Governor and longtime opponent of LGBT equality Mike Huckabee phoned in on American Family Radio's Today's Issues program earlier this week to blast the Republican Party's largely nonexistent reaction to the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision on Monday (only a handful of GOP congressmen spoke out, no statement was released by the RNC, and chairman Reince Priebus reiterated this week that gay marriage will not be a major issue during this year's midterms.)

Said Huckabee:

I'm utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have abdicated on this issue when, if they continue in this direction, they guarantee they're going to lose every election in the future...and if Republicans want to lose guys like me and a whole bunch of still God-fearing, Bible-believing people, go ahead and abdicate on this issue and while your at it go ahead and say abortion doesn't matter. Because at that point, you'll lose me. I'll become an independent. I'll start finding people that have guts to stand. I'm tired of this.

Stephen Colbert Highlights the Values Voter Summit and Bobby Jindal's Return to the 'Stupid Party' - VIDEO

Colbert

On a recent segment on his show, Stephen Colbert looked back on the "four day orgy of people fundamentally opposed to orgies" known as the Values Voter Summit. The anti-gay extravaganza, which took place in D.C. this past weekend, featured such notable opponents of equality as Michele Bachmann, Tony Perkins, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, and many others. 

Colbert also announced during the segment that he would be throwing his support behind Louisiana Governor (and VVS attendee) Bobby Jindal for president - who despite a post-2012 election call for the GOP to "stop being the "stupid party," is now firmly back on the side of right-wing nuttery.

And if you missed our exclusive report by People for the American Way about the Republican Party's dubious "rebranding" while still maintaining a cozy relationship with the hate group-backed Values Voter Summit, check that out HERE.

E.W. Jackson: 'God Ordained' That 1,000 Years From Now Same-Sex Marriage Will Not Exist - VIDEO

E.W. Jackson

True to form, failed 2013 Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia E.W. Jackson - he has previously claimed to be even better friends with god than the Pope - this time spoke for god himself, lashing out against same-sex marriage at the closing of the Values Voter Summit last Friday, reports Right Wing Watch.

The annual Values Voter Summit, organized by anti-gay bigots Family Research Council and backed by the Republican Party, featured a who’s who of homophobic wingnuts including Michelle Bachmann, Jason & David Benham, Michelle Duggar, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and Mat Staver.

Closing out Friday night’s session, Jackson attacked supporters of equality and was somewhat confused with his interpretation of "the truth":

“How dare you try to redefine an institution that God himself ordained! The fact of the matter is they can call a union other than one man and one woman by any name they choose but the reality is you can re-write a thousand dictionaries, you can put on a thousand TV shows, you can make a thousand headlines, you can have a thousand coming out parties, you can have a thousand politicians affirm the lie, but the truth will still stand and a thousand years from now, marriage will still be a union between one man and one woman because God ordained it so!"

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

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.”
