One name being batted around for the GOP nomination is one Huckabee or Huck-a-buck or….well you pick a description for this mental midget. Back in 2008 when he ran for this prestigious position he was joined by Walker Texas Ranger….Chuck Norris….I do hope that happens again so I may return to calling it the “Huck And Chuck Show”…….a comedy of errors.
Enough of my jocularity….let’s get to what this post is about….of course being a Baptist preacher he will have lots to say about gays and their rights……but he made a statement recently that made me laugh out loud……..
As Mike Huckabee feels out a 2016 presidential campaign, he’s evidently not suddenly going after the gay vote: The former governor of Arkansas tells CNN today that, as a Christian, asking him to accept gay marriage is akin to “asking someone who’s Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli.” He adds that while he has friends who are gay and that he doesn’t shut people “out of my life because they have a different point of view,” he likens homosexuality to a lifestyle choice, like swearing or drinking. “I don’t drink alcohol, but gosh—a lot of my friends, maybe most of them, do. You know, I don’t use profanity, but believe me, I’ve got a lot of friends who do. Some people really like classical music and ballet and opera—it’s not my cup of tea.”
And don’t look for Huckabee to undergo President Obama’s famous “evolution” on the issue: “This is not just a political issue. It is a biblical issue. And as a biblical issue, unless I get a new version of the scriptures, it’s really not my place to say, OK, I’m just going to evolve.” He continues: “We’re so sensitive to make sure we don’t offend certain religions, but then we act like Christians can’t have the convictions that they’ve had for 2,000 years.” (Huckabee recently dinged the Obamas for letting their kids listen to Beyonce, whose dancing is “best left for the privacy of her bedroom.“)
What got me tickled was not the gay stuff for I have come to expect that infantile crap from religious mental midgets but his comment that cursing is a lifestyle……
I admit it….I curse like a drunken sailor….but mine is not a lifestyle I choose….it is more my minds reaction to the insanity and lack of comprehension by my fellow Americans…..and a coping device for me to keep from choking the living sh*t out of some a/hole that desperately needs it. Since most are not capable of grasping the simplest concept….my mind just cannot tolerate….STUPID!
