While appearing on the Concerned Women for America radio broadcast on Monday, former Arkansas governor and current Fox News host, Mike Huckabee, claimed Americans are being forced to read about gay people in textbooks and watch gay people on TV commercials (audio below).
Concerned Women for America (CWA) recently launched a new campaign called “Willing 2 Stand,” which encourages young people to stand up against their lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender peers, noted RightWingWatch.org.
"The very thing that many people and I know CWA was a part of this, saying, this is why the legalization of same-sex marriage is going to be a much bigger issue than just saying we let people love whoever they want to love, that’s not the issue," Huckabee said.
He added: "Will it force businesses, of course everyone will say, 'Oh no people still have their rights,' but they don’t. And every fear that people had has in fact come true, that this is being forced in textbooks on how marriage is depicted, we’re now even seeing television commercials portraying same-sex couples, that’s something I guess I didn’t expect to see anytime soon."
Back in 2007, Huckabee supported quarantining people with AIDS and compared homosexuality to "lying" and "stealing," reported NBC News.
In 2010, Huckabee said allowing gays and lesbians to marry is comparable to legalizing incest, polygamy and drug use, noted CBS News.
RNC chairman Reince Priebus told the National Review in March of this year: “I always tell people, listen to Governor Mike Huckabee. I don’t know anyone that talks about [LGBT rights] any better.”
