NO SEX FOR YOU….I had the same read on Mike Huckabee’s “Meet the Press” appearance this morning as ThinkProgress:
On NBC’s Meet The Press this morning, host Tim Russert asked former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee if he believed “people are born gay or choose to be gay?” “I don’t know whether people are born that way,” responded Huckabee, “but one thing I know, that the behavior one practices is a choice.”
Huckabee conceded that “people who are gay say that they’re born that way,” but added that he believed that “how we behave and how we carry out that behavior” is more important.
I see. So, Huckabee doesn’t actually care if someone is gay, he cares whether or not gays are celibate.
And here I thought his years of bizarre criticism of the gay community were a sign of intolerance. I’ve clearly misjudged him.
