MIKE HUCKABEE - GAY PEOPLE



Most right-wing, homophobic militarists turn out to be secretly gay. (nona-people: The typical right-wing militarist - Frederick the Gay)

Mike Huckabee, one assumes, is not gay.

Mike Huckabee wants to be US president.

He has taken a lead in four out of the five important early nominating states. He is level with Giuliani in national polls. (Huckabee dubbed Ronald Reagan's heir)

Huckabee believes that the land of Israel was literally promised to the modern-day Jews by God. He has written that, "the Jews have a God-given right to reclaim land given to their ancestors and taken away from them."[54]


Huckabee has visited Israel nine times.

A newspaper reported, "When asked about a Palestinian state, Gov. Huckabee stated that a Palestinian state should be formed outside of Israel. He named Egypt and Saudi Arabia as possible alternatives." [55]

He calls Israel an "ally", "America's greatest friend in the region", and says Israel should have access to advanced weapons and technology.[56] Political positions of Mike Huckabee - Wikipedia, the free ...

Huckabee supports the displaying of the Ten Commandments in schools.

Huckabee has voiced his support of creationism and he has stated that he does not accept the validity of Darwin's theory of evolution.

Huckabee supports a larger military and a fifty percent increase in defense spending.

Huckabee supports the War in Afghanistan and the War in Iraq. He supports the surge. He is willing to consider using military force against Iran.

Huckabee opposes a government-mandated universal health care system.

Mike Huckabee (Governor of Arkansas 1996-2007) increased state spending 65.3 percent from 1996 to 2004. During his tenure, the number of state government workers in Arkansas increased over 20 percent, and the state’s general obligation debt increased by approx. $1 billion. [41] Huckabee has said that Wal-Mart is the case study in the genius of the American marketplace.

In 2001, Huckabee endorsed the use of foreign workers from Canada and Mexico for agricultural labor. [30] In 2006, Huckabee gave a speech where he said that Hispanic immigration into the US gives Americans a second chance to prove that they are not racist by accepting Hispanic immigrants.[31]

Huckabee said that he supports the death penalty.

Huckabee has voiced his support for self-defense and the Castle Doctrine, and has generally taken an anti-gun-control stance.

Huckabee stated in 1992, "I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk".[10]

According to an article entitled Bigots are buggers :

"Research by US psychologists suggests that 80% of men who are homophobic have secret homosexual feelings.

"The research results were published in the prestigious Journal of Abnormal Psychology, with the backing of the American Psychological Association.


"In tests conducted by Prof. Henry E Adams of the University of Georgia, homophobic men who said they were exclusively heterosexual were shown gay sex videos. Four out of five became sexually aroused by the homoerotic imagery, as recorded by a penile circumference measuring device - a plethysmograph.


"Prof. Adams says his research shows that most homophobes 'demonstrate significant sexual arousal to homosexual erotic stimuli', suggesting that homophobia is a form of 'latent homosexuality where persons are either unaware of or deny their homosexual urges'.

Huckabee has hired Ed Rollins, the man who helped Ronald Reagan win the greatest landslide in American political history, as his campaign chairman. (Huckabee dubbed Ronald Reagan's heir)

Ed Rollins has hailed Huckabee as the candidate he has been waiting for since 'the Great Communicator' left the political stage two decades ago.

Was Ronald Reagan secretly friendly to gay people?

In 1967, a column by Drew Pearson in the New York Post reported that:

'a homosexual ring' had operated out of Governor Reagan’s office for six months 'with his full knowledge' and that the governor 'did not act until pressured by aides into firing the men'.

Pearson alleged that Art Van Court, Reagan’s bodyguard, had a tape recording ‘of a (homosexual) sex orgy which had taken place at a cabin near Lake Tahoe, leased by two members of Reagan’s staff.’

The following paragraph is from: http://www.glbtq.com/social-sciences/republican_party.html

"The first organized and visible gay presence at a Republican National Convention occurred in 1984, when Ronald Reagan became his party's nominee for a second term. However, this presence did not prevent a conservative faction of the GOP from trying, but failing, to oust the newly formed Log Cabin Club, a gay Republican group, from the party in 1987. The effort to oust the Log Cabin Club may have failed because of Reagan's ties to the group."

An 1989 Washington Times investigative report by Paul M. Rodriguez and George Archibald revealed that:

A Washington, D.C. boy prostitution ring was under investigation. The ring numbered among its clients high officials of the Reagan administration.

(“Homosexual prostitution inquiry ensnares VIPs with Reagan, Bush: ‘Call boys’ took midnight tour of White House,” June 29, 1989.)

“The investigation is said to be focused on illegal interstate prostitution, abduction and use of minors for sexual perversion, extortion, larceny and related illicit drug trafficking and use by prostitutes and their clients.”

Reportedly, one former top-level Pentagon officer said that for eight years, military and civilian intelligence authorities were concerned that 'a nest of homosexuals at top levels of the Reagan administration may have been penetrated by Soviet-backed espionage agents posing as male prostitutes.'

Reportedly, lobbyist Craig Spence conducted a 1 a.m tour of the Reagan White House on July 3, 1988 for six friends, including two homosexual call boys.

At this site :http://www.laststory.com/Ronald%20Reagan%20Fact%20and%20Fiction.htm we read:

Reagan knew many homosexuals in Hollywood and considered several of them close, personal friends... Marc Christian, the homosexual partner of the late Rock Hudson, wrote:

“The notion that a Ronald Reagan was a homophobe strikes me as silly beyond belief. Not only did he have several gay men on his staff when he was Governor of California, he called my lover, Rock Hudson, when he was on his deathbed just weeks before he died of AIDS and wished him well and voiced his and Nancy’s concern and prayers. The Reagans had known Rock for years and knew he was gay (as did most of Hollywood). …The point is, Reagan could have ignored Rock’s illness and didn’t.”

Most Americans are ignorant about religion


Most Americans are ignorant about religion
Is the USA a Christian nation?

Do Americans understand the teachings of Jesus?

A Gallup survey has found:

1. Less than half of Americans can name the first book of the Bible (Genesis).

2. Only a third know who delivered the Sermon on the Mount (Billy Graham is a popular answer).

3. A quarter do not know what is celebrated at Easter (the resurrection, the foundational event of Christianity).

4. 60 % cannot name half the ten commandments.

5. 12% think Noah was married to Joan of Arc.

6. Only half can name even one of the four Gospels

7. In a survey from 2000, 60 % of evangelicals answered yes when asked whether Jesus was born in Jerusalem (the New Testament says he was born in Bethlehem).

The polls show that Evangelical Christians are only slightly more knowledgeable than their non-evangelical counterparts.

Salt Lake City, Mormons, Sex.

Salt Lake City is one of the top 51 'gay-friendly places to live' in the U.S. [45]

The city has a large gay community. (Salt Lake City, Utah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

In the 2004 election, 63% of the city population voted against banning same-sex marriage. [49]

Salt Lake City was founded in 1847 by a group of Mormons led by their prophet, Brigham Young.

It was Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith who married a 14 year-old. (Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith and Helen Mar Kimball age 14)

According to an article Mormonism For Children? "Many Mormon women (as well as men) suffer terribly from depression."

"Utah residents are among the highest users of anti-depressant medication in the United States, as documented in a CBS news story June 3, 2002,"Unhappy In Utah" and in the article "Mormon Women, Prozac, and Therapy" by Dr. Kent Ponder. -Mormonism For Children?

"The frequency of child abuse and spousal abuse in Utah is also extremely high."


"In a highly controversial trial, which took place in 1987, a man by the name of Alan B. Hadfield was convicted on seven counts of "sodomizing and sexually molesting his son and daughter." (Salt Lake Tribune, Jan. 13, 1988)

"In the same newspaper, under the date of Dec. 16, 1987, we find the following: 'PROVO—As many as 40 people in the same Lehi neighborhood were implicated as child sex abusers by their own offspring and other children in the area, a therapist testified Tuesday.
"Dr. Barbara Snow, the principal therapist who broke an alleged widespread pattern of child sexual abuse centered in one ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spent nearly six hours on the stand during the second day of the trial of Alan B. Hadfield."
