Case in point: The positions the ordained Southern Baptist minister put forth during his failed 1992 Senate campaign. During a campaign-trail interview with the Associated Press, for instance, Huckabee said allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military would be a disgrace for the nation.
"I agree with the leadership of our military, who believe it is not in the best interest of the armed forces to have homosexuals serving on active duty," he said at the time. "I believe to try to legitimize that which is inherently illegitimate would be a disgraceful act of government. I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk."
Being a Christian myself, I'd like to give this man the benefit-of-the-doubt, but he's obviously beyond ignorant. Don't judge all Christians by this guy. This man is frightening. I'll work to ensure he doesn't get the nomination and God forbid, the presidency!
