America’s “Christian Taliban” leader, Mike Huckabee, is not happy that President Obama nominated an open gay man, Eric Fanning, as US Army Secretary. That’s no surprise. As the self appointed leader of the lunatic fringe of the “Christian” right, Huckabee has a special hatred in his heart for gay and lesbian individuals.
Huckabee said, “It’s clear President Obama is more interested in appeasing America’s homosexuals than honoring America’s heroes.” What isn’t clear is what Huckabee thinks Fanning lacks in qualifications, other than being straight. By all accounts, Mr. Fanning is highly qualified. He has been recognized for some time as a rising star. And yet, Huckabee takes issue. It also isn’t clear to me why you cannot “honor America’s heroes” by appointing a gay man as US Army Secretary.
It isn’t really a surprise. Huckabee also supports throwing away the US Constitution and replacing it with the bible, as evidenced by his support for the whacked out county clerk in Kentucky that refuses to issue marriage licenses because it is “against her religion” to allow gays to get married.
Perhaps if Huckabee becomes President, he can appoint himself “Supreme Holy Leader of The United States of Christianity.”
