Watch: Mike Huckabee Featured in One of The Most Absurd Anti-Gay Videos I’ve Ever Seen

mike-huckabee-video-screenshotI’ve lost all patience in dealing with people who oppose giving homosexuals equal rights. At first I tried to be cordial, but now it’s impossible for me to hide my disdain toward these people. They are absolutely obsessed with homosexuality. The Bible is literally hundreds of pages in length, with thousands of rules written inside (most of which go ignored by every Christian), but for some reason these radical evangelicals have decided that homosexuality is the most horrific thing to ever happen to the human race.

I just don’t get why they care. I always go back to the adage that if you’re someone who believes that homosexuality is a “sin before God” and that those who are gay will be “judged” – then let God judge them. What the hell do they have to do with it?

I’ll never get why so many religious people, regardless of what religion they follow, often have this drive inside of them to force their views on other people. It makes absolutely no sense. What do the personal religious views of someone else have to do with your beliefs? How exactly do two homosexuals getting married “violate the rights” of someone who opposes gay marriage? Nobody is forcing them to enter into a gay marriage. They’re still free to oppose homosexuality all they want. But what they’re not free to do is force their views on other people.

That’s it. 

Nobody is trying to eradicate Christianity. This isn’t about someone else’s faith, it’s about equal rights for Americans regardless of sexual orientation. That’s what these religious zealots don’t understand. They act as if gay marriage has something to do with them and their religion – it doesn’t.

Take for instance possibly the most absurd anti-gay video I’ve ever seen featuring none other than probable 2016 GOP presidential candidate, and former Fox News personality, Mike Huckabee. In it he basically says we don’t have freedom of speech if a business is denied the right to discriminate against homosexuals based on their religious beliefs.

It’s amazing how many of these arguments people like Huckabee use against homosexuals are almost the exact same ones used by bigots decades ago who opposed desegregation and interracial marriage.

But Huckabee’s comments were just some of many in this promotional video for an upcoming film from Janet Porter that essentially calls homosexuality “evil” and implies that the push for equal rights for homosexuals is nothing more than a direct attack on Christians.

It’s just under 4 minutes in length but I would encourage everyone reading this to watch it. It’s rare to see this much stupid wrapped up in just 239 seconds.

Here’s a line from this video that best sums up its idiocy: “It’s not really about marriage. It’s about forcing the acceptance of homosexuality on people.”

Because that’s really how these people feel. Somehow by not letting them force their views on other people, that’s restricting their “rights.” Their brains just don’t seem able to grasp the irony that they’re whining about how their “rights” are being attacked – because they aren’t being allowed to force their views on other people and deny them their rights.

And what always makes me laugh is while these people try so hard to demonize homosexuality and gay marriage, Canada legalized same-sex marriage almost a decade ago and God didn’t wipe our northern neighbor off the face of the planet. The country continues to thrive and Christianity is still the overwhelmingly dominant religion.

These people just can’t get it through their heads that nobody cares what they believe. If they want to personally oppose homosexuality, then go right ahead. Nobody is forcing them to be gay. But what they cannot do, and what our courts (via our Constitution) are finally not allowing them to do, is force their religious views on other people.

      I know I was thinking the same thing. Deep, dark, dramatic…screams WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!! lmao These people are ridiculous.

  • Nancy B

    They are still confusing homosexuality with pedophilia, I see. Huckabee used to come across as reasonable. Too bad he sold out.

    • 4thStooge

      It’s amazing what putting a black man in charge did to the reason of so many formerly reasonable conservatives.

        I’m old. I’ve always disagreed with his political and religious positions, But in the late ’90s/early ’00s, he was a more inclusive guy.

    Nice rip off from Slender in the intro. How does marriage equality equate to the “attack” on Christianity? I just don’t get it. What if they’re atheists? What if they’re homosexual Jews, Buddhists, Hindu? How does that equal the death of Christianity? I think the trailer would have been better if something attacked her at the end, like a homosexual zombie. 3:)

      You also need to remember that the good, upright Huck-ster is busy lending his name to “free” DVDs about American History.

      I’m not sure which is worse. That he is using patriotism to pull people into the old con job of a “free” DVD / book / record where the recipient pays far more than the cost in shipping and handling charges only to find they are hooked in a DVD of the month club. Or that he pretends to be selling “real” American History by a fictionalized version of reality – just another attempt of the scoundrel to wrap himself in the flag (a consistent Repub talent).

    Remember these are the same people who picket abortion clinics, murder doctors who perform them and think they are removing the devil from our society.

    They truly believe that the devil is in anything that they disagree with.

    The thing is, there is nothing in the Bible about homosexuality or prohibiting same-sex relationships. Those two verses in Leviticus was a prohibition against married men of the Levirate displacing their wives for sex with males. It’s really abominable when your wife comes home and finds you (her husband) in her bed with a man. Then there is all the New Testament verses mistranslated and twisted around. Lesbianism and transgenderism is never mentioned or even touched upon.

    Maybe we should allow them what they wish? Like the impromptu idea of reducing regulations by adding a regulation that a business can opt out of hand washing but they must obtain a sign, what if we allow businesses to opt out anti-discrimination? They get a nifty little sign that says they proudly only serve heterosexual Christians that live according to the Bible. This way they can stay true to the Bible. No homosexuals, people that are divorced, have had an affair, ect. (The business should also be required to be follow the Bible, including being closed on the Sabbath.) Conservatives love having the free market sorts this kind of thing, right? They should embrace this chance to thrive while not having to do business with sinners and nonbelievers. If the area does not embrace their right to discriminate and chooses other business for their needs then that’s just free market at work, right?

    Am I understanding this correctly? The constitutionalists who fault President Obama for desecrating the Constitution want to defile it themselves by preventing “the people” represented in said document, while using antiquated and irrelevant writings of unknown origin, from obtaining the rights and privileges within its document. Meanwhile these same folks decry islam and its tenets that are forced upon its people (sharia law) all the while trying to interject their CHRISTIAN faith on the people of the US and its constitution by trying to pass laws that adhere to ITS tenets. Explain how this is different and how you and your faith are being persecuted. “We the people” do not except laws that are based on fairytales.

    So gays are only against Christians and no other religious group, not against Muslim, Buddhist, Jews, just Christians. So what makes Christians so special that gays only attack them?
