Mike Huckabee is shocked he has to see gay couples on TV. In a conversation with Concerned Women for America (CWA) head Penny Nance yesterday, Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate, lamented “we’re now even seeing television commercials portraying same-sex couples, that’s something I guess I didn’t expect to see anytime soon.”
During most of the interview, Nance maintained that conservatives on college campuses were “bullied” and had trouble articulating their views on topics like gay rights.
Huckabee, who has become an increasingly polarizing figure, has been linked to David Lane, the evangelical political organizer who last week published an op-ed demanding his followers “Wage war to restore a Christian America” for the “pagan onslaught imposing homosexual marriage.”
On the day of the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, which left 20 first-grade children and six adults murdered, Huckabee, a Fox News host and ordained Baptist minister, proclaimed it happened because “we’ve systematically removed God from our schools.”
And earlier last year, Huckabee led the anti-gay “Eat at Chick-fil-A Day.”
