Huckabee likens gay marriage to incest, polygamy

WASHINGTON – "Mike Huckabee, a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012, says the effort to allow gays and lesbians to marry is comparable to legalizing incest, polygamy and drug use.

Huckabee also told college journalists last week that gay couples should not be permitted to adopt. 'Children are not puppies,' he said.

This is so insulting and infuriating. When I first saw it I couldn't even think straight. But after a few minutes it struck me that this is just the reaction that these people want. Angry protests and flaming attacks are the whole reason this kind of rhetoric is used. Rational, calm reason is the best way to counter outrageous, blatantly false statements like these.

As for children being puppies, I do believe that this mother is not in a gay marriage.
