Why do Republicans say stuff like this?

From a Washington Post article posted Monday:

"In discussing same-sex marriage, ... Huckabee said, 'You don't go ahead and accommodate every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal. That would be like saying, well, there are a lot of people who like to use drugs, so let's go ahead and accommodate those who want who use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, so we should accommodate them.'"

Huckebee is an idiot.

An acceptable explanation.

Hit publish too quick. Now explain why tens of thousands of people aren't excoriating on him.

Oh dear - I should have known you would require an explanation. I get so angry at narrow minded bigots that sometimes I just can't speak - or write.

To deny rights or freedoms to someone because of the way they were born is wrong. Homosexuals are born homosexual. If you believe in God and believe that he created man in his own image then you should accept his creation.

In my book, to deny people the right to live in peace and love who you want makes you an idiot.

Tens of thousands of people should be excoriating him.

For now, that's the best I can do. I'm still sputtering!
