Mike Huckabee Is Faithful To the Issue Of Marriage, Not To Marriage Itself
Today, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said, “I am absolutely faithful to the issue of marriage. Not because it’s politically expedient, but because it’s the Biblical position, the historical position and the right position. We must defend, protect and preserve traditional marriage.”
I find it odd how Huckabee says that he is faithful to the issue of marriage. How can a person be faithful to an issue?
Huckabee’s odd language seems to be a consequence of the fact that he is actually opposed to marriage for huge numbers of Americans. He wants to use the power of Big Government to interfere with people’s families, and stop them from getting married.
Mike Huckabee is actually anti-marriage. He doesn’t think that that gay and lesbian couples should get married. He’s actually trying to break up the weddings of strangers.
Mike Huckabee is faithful to making an issue out of other people’s marriages, getting all nosy and in their business. He’s spent so many years as a preacher that he actually believes its his legitimate role in society to put himself in the middle of other people’s lives.
What’s so important to justify Huckabee’s intrusion? He says that he has to defend and protect marriage – but from who? No state, anywhere, has attacked what Mike Huckabee calls “traditional marriage”. In no place in the USA is it illegal for a man and a woman to get married.
Huckabee isn’t helping anybody by trying to stop gay and lesbian couples from getting married. He’s only seeking to impose his idea of faith on everybody else.
Mike Huckabee is being rude and disrespectful to millions of Americans. We don’t need to see that kind of attitude in the White House.
