Not to Go All PoliticalJanuary 18, 2008
because you know I usually don't, but please.
Mike Huckabee would like to change the Constitution to reflect God's standards. That's great. And now he's comparing homosexuality to bestiality. Fantastic.
From an interview in Beliefnet:
BN: Is it your goal to bring the Constitution into strict conformity with the Bible? Some people would consider that a kind of dangerous undertaking, particularly given the variety of biblical interpretations.
Huckabee: Well, I don’t think that’s a radical view to say we’re going to affirm marriage. I think the radical view is to say that we’re going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal. Again, once we change the definition, the door is open to change it again. I think the radical position is to make a change in what’s been historic.
Wow. Ever heard of Rick Santorum, Mike? What will the word Huckabee come to mean? Any good ideas, Dan Savage?
*Edited to add: It's started! Thanks, Dan. (Warning, links might be offensive to some. That's the point.)
