Mike Huckabee: Homosexuality Could “Pose A Dangerous Public Health Risk”

If you are sick of the new requirement in the race for the White House that first a candidate must run as ‘pastor in chief”, than I suggest you read this piece.  The need for the evangelicals to find one like themselves has been found in Mike Huckabee.  And it smells bad.  The fact that Huckabee has played to the lowest common denominator for years should concern us all.  As Politico reports the news might hurt his chances at the nomination.

Besides a quarantine, Huckabee suggested that Hollywood celebrities fund AIDS research from their own pockets, rather than federal health agencies.

“If the federal government is truly serious about doing something with the AIDS virus, we need to take steps that would isolate the carriers of this plague,” Huckabee wrote.

“It is difficult to understand the public policy towards AIDS. It is the first time in the history of civilization in which the carriers of a genuine plague have not been isolated from the general population, and in which this deadly disease for which there is no cure is being treated as a civil rights issue instead of the true health crisis it represents.”

When Huckabee wrote his answers in 1992, it was common knowledge that AIDS could not be spread by casual contact.

Also in the wide-ranging AP questionnaire in 1992, Huckabee said, “I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk.”

What a moronAnd Mike, that is different from a Mormon!

  1. You know I read this post this morning and I was ready to send off a “from the hip” type of post saying something to the affect of “But he said this 15 years ago”. The fact is if you are running for President (or any federal office for that matter) everything and I mean everything you have said or done has to be put out on display. That is the price for seeking the office. If it includes what you said 15 years ago, if you cheated on your Bar exam whatever it should be left to scrutiny for the voter to check out if this is the man or the woman I want to cast my vote for. I would even take this one step by asking what prescription drugs are they on. We need to know the character, morals and overall health of the candidate for elected office pure and simple.
