Responding to Huckabee

The below from Steve Goldstein from Garden State Equality in response to Mike Huckabee’s bigoted and hateful remarks about gays.

“Mike Huckabee’s comments, which ably demonstrate why he’ll never be President of the United States, prove exactly why New Jersey needs to enact marriage equality. Every day New Jersey denies marriage equality to same-sex couples is yet another day in which our society gives an imprimatur to extremists to demonize loving American families as somehow less than human.

The outrageous tenor of Huckabee’s comments, which lack compassion for fellow human beings even beyond the position he expressed, demonstrates that opposition to marriage equality is, for some, a stalking horse for the spewing of hate.”

    How about pastor wright? Does he not talk hate speech? There seems to be a doylble standard here and there. Free speech allows all of us to counter punch the ignorance and lies that are all around us. How come the president will not release his colege records? What is he hiding? How come the press gives him a pass of so many issues? He could be a one term president. The saying goes fool me once , shame on you , fool me twice shame on me! There is just as much hate talk etc from the other party fred. They have some dirty hands here also buddy. The GOP isnot lined with saints. But we are not fooled by CNN and keith overman etc!
