Mike Huckabee spreads confusion about homosexuality and pedophilia

Saturday, July 21, 2012

The reason why the Boy Scouts made such a ridiculous decision regarding keeping gays out is because people like former Governor and now radio talk show host Mike Huckabee. Listen how he and a caller who was molested as a child makes it seem that gays want to be in the Boy Scouts to “go after” children.

I feel sorry for this caller but he is wrong. A gay man did not molest him. A pedophile (a person who TARGETS children) molested him. And it’s sad that Huckabee aided and abetted this poor man’s ignorance:

This isn’t accidental on Huckabee’s part. He has in the past:

Just count this as another notch on his belt of homophobic ignorance.

  5. Wow. I find the caller a bit ridiculous. I feel incredibly terrible for him that he was molested but there is no way that homosexuals target those groups with the intent to harm or molest, pedophiles do.

  11. not to sound bad or anything like that but let us remember there could be a few within the community who have given us bad names in every part of the world there are people who go after people much younger then they are its no different in the LGBTQ community but until they have proven the people who went after them are gay they have no solid facts. but again it only takes one bad person to ruin it for everyone

  12. Ignorance running rampant!

  13. When I was in Boy Scouts, it was some of the scouts that were gay and not the leadership. There has always been gay boy scouts, and there always will be. Maybe they should adopt DADT until the governing body of the BSA matures.

  16. The same people who are too stupid to know the difference between homosexuality and pedophilia, also can’t tell the difference between the terms love and hate and should not be trusted.

  18. I used to be 100% opposed to the death penalty. I am starting to think that the only way to get rid of a rabid hater like Huckabee, is to make Supreme Stupidity a capital offense.

  25. Gay is gay and pedophiles are pedophiles. Period.

  26. everyone knows that child molestation has nothing to do with ones sexual preference. It is about one person taking control over another person the same as a rapist taking control over their victim. It is sad that people like this get on the radio or TV and spread crap. If they want to broadcast they need to do there home work or be taken off the air.
