Huckabee Equates Homosexuality With Bestiality

Also, Huckabee did the gigantic flip flop and jumped on the largely discredited Tancredo "send all illegal immigrants home" bandwagon.

UPDATE: Huckabee Channels Man-on-Dog Santorum

In an interview with Beliefnet.com, a religion Web site, Huck has just clarified his view that the Constitution should be amended to be brought in line with God's will -- and he directly equated homosexuality with bestiality.

Huck, in elaborating on his views that the Constitution should be subjected to Biblical standards, had just wrapped up a discussion of the fact that marriage has meant "a man and a woman in a relationship for life." With this context firmly established, this exchange followed:

QUESTIONER: Is it your goal to bring the Constitution into strict conformity with the Bible? Some people would consider that a kind of dangerous undertaking, particularly given the variety of biblical interpretations.

HUCKABEE: Well, I don't think that's a radical view to say we're going to affirm marriage. I think the radical view is to say that we're going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal. Again, once we change the definition, the door is open to change it again. I think the radical position is to make a change in what's been historic.

There are a lot of reasons why Mike Huckabee has been getting miserable notices on the campaign trail-- not just from Democrats, but from Republicans as well. Many Republicans dislike him because of his quasi-populist policies. "Is this a Republican or some kind of John Edwards wanna be?" one GOP Insider fumed a few days ago. John Edwards he's not. But he does try to address concerns of some Americans who are not making 6 figure annual incomes. That's odd for a Republican. Unfortunately, he doesn't address them from an informed or even a helpful perspective.

A few days ago he blurted out what everyone has been waiting for him to say-- that we should make the Constitution conform to God's will. That's like Sharia law and it is certainly not what a consensus of Americans want, not even Republican Americans (at least not Republicans outside of the most backward of Deep South precincts). The Huckster tried laughing it off when he got called on it and said he just meant he was anti-gay, not like he really wanted everyone to have to pay tithes. Oh... whew; let me change my party registration.

Today the Moonie Times reports that Huckabee, whose nomination chances has been badly hurt because of his moderately pro-immigrant policies while he was governor of Arkansas, did the gigantic flip flop and jumped on the moribund and rotted-out, largely discredited Tancredo bandwagon: SEND ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS HOME.
