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.
