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.

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.

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

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.”
