Mike Huckabee: "I'm Not Homophobic...I'm On The Right Side Of The Bible"

Failed 2008 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee greased the wheels for his next White House attempt in 2016 by speaking to a conservative group in Iowa this week. In his speech before Iowa's Faith and Freedom Coalition, the Huckster broke big news: he's not a homophobe. Still, gay people should not be allowed to marry the person they love because THE BIBLE, of which, Huckabee would rather be on the right side of than history. 

 "I'm not against anybody," Huckabee told the crowd. "I'm really not. I'm not a hater. I'm not homophobic. I honestly don't care what people do personally in their individual lives."

"But...when people say, 'Why don't you just kind of get on the right side of history?' I said, 'You've got to understand, this for me is not about the right side or the wrong side of history, this is the right side of the Bible, and unless God rewrites it, edits it, sends it down with his signature on it, it's not my book to change.' Folks, that's why I stand where I stand."

Less than four months ago, Mike Huckabee was an outspoken defender of Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson in the scandal that brewed following the reality TV star's horrific anti-gay comments. Huckabee said he agreed with the comments (all gays are going to hell) and even launched a Facebook page supporting Robertson. But totally not a homophobe.

The Huckbees of the world could do really positive things if they chose but they waste time denouncing gays, shilling for oil companies, and complaining that the convenience store worker might get health insurance. Such a waste.

the problem with that too is that God didnt write the bible anyway, so he cant re-write something he didnt write to begin with. And also, Glutany is a sin and as we see from him, he is a big fat big so he obviously doesnt have to be on the right side of the bible for that cause. i dont like calling him that as i know its awful but he IS a fat pig so its ok to say

And the "right" side of the bible says Blacks were born to be slaves and woman should be submissive and inferior to men. Why doesn't he include THAT in his speech?

And, it's a sin to be Jewish, so we should deny them their equal rights too!

He is not a hater.  He is not homophobic.  But, he IS a hypocrit, because that is what being on the "right" side of the Bible is all about

He's going to need to read God and the Gay Christian by Matthew Vines which comes out in two weeks, because it explains perfectly why Christians have gotten it wrong. If Huckabee had any intelligence at all and did a study himself he would probably get to those conclusions himself, but they just like to be told what to believe.
