Huckabee Still Wants Log Cabin Republican Support

Mike Huckabee still stands by his belief that gay Republicans should support him.

Unfortunately, he also stands by his beliefs that being gay is unnatural and sinful.

During his Senate run, Huckabee also told the AP in the questionnaire that he found homosexuality to be "an aberrant, unnatural and sinful lifestyle."

Speaking Monday in Miami, Florida, Huckabee said he still stands by his earlier remarks on homosexuality.

"Let's understand what sin means," Huckabee said. "Sin means missing the mark. Missing the mark could mean missing the mark in any area. We've all missed the mark."

He's also made his stance on marriage clear. Unlike Larry Craig, it's not a wide stance.

The former Baptist minister said the "proper relationship" is one between a married man and woman having children.

I'm glad to see him take this view. I hope he'll join me in outlawing straight divorce; he'd be narrowing his competition to Willard Romney and R0|\| |>4u1 were my proposals made law, after all.

Of course, as long as it's between a man and a woman, it's acceptable to Huckabee. After all, Mike Huckabee is a big supporter of rapist's rights to be free and continue to prey on women.

Two former parole board members in Arkansas said yesterday that as governor, Mr. Huckabee met with the board in 1996 to lobby them to release the convicted rapist, Wayne DuMond, whose case was championed by evangelical Christians.

In fairness, this may be because Huckabee's positions on social issues are unflinchingly taken from whatever the religious right says, no matter how outlandish.

And of course, he fails to retract his 1992 statements that AIDS patients should be quarantined.

Responding to an Associated Press questionnaire, Huckabee said steps should be taken to "isolate the carriers of this plague" during his failed run for a U.S. Senate seat from Arkansas 15 years ago.

This was bad enough then, 2 years after the Ryan White Act had passed the Senate 95-4
and the House 408-14.

But as long as 7 years ago, 2000, objections to the Act had vanished. It passed the Senate by unanimous consent, and even the supposedly principled Ron Paul didn't vote against it (he missed the vote, perhaps intentionally, perhaps not).

This man is disgusting.
