    'I'm Gone': Evangelical Mike Huckabee Threatens GOP To Become More Anti-Gay Or Else

    "If the Republicans wanna lose guys like me, and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people, go ahead and just abdicate on this issue, and go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either. Because at that point, you lose me, I’m gone. I’ll become an independent, I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand, I’m tired of this."

    (from the same link)

    Of course, were Huckabee to become an independent, and take the radical religious evangelical right with him, and set up shop as an independent, and run for president, it would split the GOP in two, and hand the Democrat a all-but automatic win.

    So, Pastor Huckabee, if you insist...

    The gay issue is over. The public has decided. Huckster needs to get with the program and find some actual important issues to focus on.

    I actually typed Huckabee but my iPad "corrected" it for me.

    If Republicans are going to keep trying to fight gay marriage and other social issues thinking that it's going to help them win elections. Then we're going to see the Democrats in charge for a long time.

    The fight over same sex marriage is over. Even the US Supreme Court has stepped away from same sex marriage. They're going by the rulings by the lower courts.

    >>The fight over same sex marriage is over
    Just like abortion it will never go away even when made legal and there will be a fair amount of society that will always be against.

    Broadway, nope. You are wrong on this one.

    Abortion and gay rights are totally different subjects.

    Huckabee has just cemented himself as being irrelevant. He is is living in 1960. He's got a nice radio voice and a neat little midday on ABC radio (thanks to the demise of Paul Harvey), but means squat in today's politcal world.

    Huckabee is a strong communicator, but the communication means nothing unless it connects with the average voter. He's toast. But he might be able to continue to sell home security products and mattresses.

    Huckabee is a bad person. His beliefs are evil, mean, and ridiculous.

    Thankfully his ilk will be dying off as the years go by, but the main problem is that they brainwash the younger generation of future Huckabees to continue their legacy of hate and intolerance.

    That does not matter...what matters is what is right and in America and even in liberal Europe there are those that will always believe in righteous ideals...if not...Sodom is at hand.

    Talk about bullying, you had to bring Bible BS into my thread.

    You really need to concern yourself with present day matters because after you're dead, a pike with your name on it awaits you.
