Former Republican presidential hopeful and current ordained minister and Fox News host Mike Huckabee knows family values. And in a recent interview, he made it perfectly clear that gays and lesbians should not be allowed to marry, have civil unions, or especially to adopt children.
Huckabee went on to draw parallels between homosexuality and other lifestyles that are considered by some to be morally aberrant. “You don’t go ahead and accommodate every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal,” he said of same-sex marriage. “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 to 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.”
He also affirmed support for a law in Arkansas that prohibits same-sex couples from becoming adoptive or foster parents. “I think this is not about trying to create statements for people who want to change the basic fundamental definitions of family,” Huckabee said. “And always we should act in the best interest of the children, not in the seeming interest of the adults.”
“Children are not puppies,” he continued. “This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?”

It takes a bold man to proudly proclaim that children are not puppies. It takes a bolder man to make sure that the public understands the dangers of homosexual couples adopting. Sure almost every single child in foster care was removed from the care of a heterosexual couple who lost their right to parenthood through either abuse or neglect, but which is actually worse: A mother who puts cigarette butts out on a child’s arm? Or the risk that a child might be repeatedly exposed to Lisa Minnelli albums?
If you chose Liza Minnelli, congratulations. You’re qualified to work as a contributor for Fox.
