5. Defeat the drug abusing- homosexual-incestuous-polygamists!
Huckabee, a former Baptist preacher and governor of Arkansas, is known for holding deep, evangelical conservative views on social issues. Yet, in a GOP race where certain candidates are working towards criminal justice reform, and allowing the state’s their right to decide certain issues such as same sex marriage, Huckabee lumped his views of homosexuality and the drug war into a single argument during a 2010 interview:
“You don’t go ahead and accommodate every behavioral pattern that is against the ideal [speaking 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 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.”
