Huckabee Likens Gay Marriage To Incest, Polygamy
AP ^ | 4/13/2010 | Natasha Metzler

Posted on 04/13/2010 10:42:15 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

Mike Huckabee, a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012 says the effort to allow gays and lesbians to marry is comparable to legalizing incest, polygamy and drug use...

Huckabee told the interviewer that not every group's interests deserve to be accomodated if their lifestyle is outside what he called "the ideal."...

"There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accomodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, should we accomodate them?" he said.

Liberals are caught in an unwinnable situation here and Huck is close to the winning formula. Then again, he may be baiting liberals into saying that they support accomodating consenting adults - be they polygamists or homosexuals. Conservatives should use the following against those who advocate for legalizing same sex marriage:

If liberals say that they want marriage to be redefined to allow for the legalization of same sex marriage, that they want marriage equality for consenting adult homosexuals and that consenting adults should be allowed to marry based upon love, and then turn around and say that they don't want marriage to also be redefined to allow polygamous marriage, that they aren't for marriage equality for polygamists (just for homosexuals) and that marriage should be based upon love for homosexuals but not for polygamists then they show themselves to be hypocrites. And they also lose that valuable weapon of calling others bigots because they show themselves to be bigoted against polgamy.

BUT, for liberals to avoid being tagged as bigots (as well as being hypocrites) then they would have to say that they support the legalization of polygamy as well - which would undermine the push for same sex marriage being legalized. Two front war.

The third front liberals open up on themselves when they bring up the Bible somehow supporting polygamy. Jesus never supported polygamy. He quoted Genesis which says that marriage was meant from the beginning to between one man and one woman. And there are NO scriptures which condone same sex marriage.

He’s a bit off, there.

The Bible equates it more with BEASTIALITY than anything else.

Very interesting where this is going.

Let’s keep the discussion to Huckabee taking on same sex marriage and showing that it is hypocritical for liberals to want to accomodate homosexuals but not polygamists.

A lot of people who are biblically ignorant equate the recording of events and practices (polygamy, slavery) with the condoning of those events and practices.

The OT is mostly a history book, with later books of prophecy.

If homosexuality is “normal” and it is “wrong” to deny someone the right to act on their baser instincts, then bisexual people should be allowed one spouse of each gender. Otherwise the homosexuals are requiring the bisexuals to deny half of their own identity.

But the thing that would follow the legalization of same sex marriage across America would be the legalization of polygamy - not the legalization of bestiality.

The Sex Positive advocates like Kinsey, Reich, and socialist feminists agree that they are comparable but don’t see them as perversion. They see sexual gratification as a birthright to be enjoyed without any moral judgements.

There is more historical and cultural tradition of polygamy around the world and through the pages of time than there are for same sex monogamous marriage.

I was quoting from the Authority on the matter of human sexuality.

You’re right, in OUR society, polygamy would be next, then incest, then adult-child, etc.

The main point is that there is THE definition,
or there is NO definition - anything goes.

Indeed, and they show that they lack the ability to do a proper exegesis of the scriptures and taking the totality of scripture when it comes to any topic.

What I find interesting is those liberals who argue against the scriptures (where God condemns homosexuality) and say that the scriptures are being taken out of context and that God does not condemn same sex marriage or homosexuality.

I then ask them to provide any scripture which condones homosexuality or same sex marriage. They then - typically - say that the Bible is just a dusty old archaic book that is irrelevant. Funny how they quickly go from quoting scripture to bashing the Bible.

Not sure who has the libertarian ping list - ping.

While conservatives all agree on this, I can easily see how the pro-drug Libertarians would be spitting mad over this.

Looking at this a slightly different way....

Name any argument in favor of gay marriage that does not also support adult incest and polygamy. There isn't one....

As for bestiality, animals can't consent so that's not a workable comparison.

Polygamy makes biological sense

Not if leads to an excess number of males who then are more aggressive and warlike and thus leading to population extinction. History has shown that primitive peoples who do practice polygamy do not do well.

**Polygamy makes biological sense. Homosexuality does not**.

Divine guidance and ancient wisdom for sexual constraints have been forever sacrificed to the fog of technology and self-indulgence.

Consider how we have misused medical science as it relates to egg & sperm donors and transgender reassignment. We are no longer satisfied to live as God created us or to pursue procreation to continue our human species.

How can cross breeding with other species be far behind?

Contemplate the possibilities for future CAT HOARDERS!!!!!

Yep, the moment liberals say that they support “consenting adult same sex marriage” that brings in consenting adult incest and consenting adult polygamy.

Then they have to choose whether or not they will be branded as being what they call others - bigots - as well as being tagged as being hypocrites. Or they can choose to openly support consenting adult polygamy, for instance.

As I have tried to point out at other times, conservatives should stay away from the bestiality/homosexual marriage comparisons.

In polygamous societies, many males having multiple mothers and competing for the attention of the one father for some reason leads to warlike tendencies. This has been shown in multiple socities.

Yes, and when you raise the point they get very indignant, saying there’s no such thing as bisexuals.

There’s no logic at all to their positions.

And what is civilization anyway but a way to harness and redirect certain impulses? If the idea is for anyone to do whatever they like, then maybe even toilet training goes too far! I wouldn’t be surprised to see a war on that next.

I think polygamy has sometimes followed wars, when males became scarce. In any event, sex has an obvious biological purpose, which can be served in polygamy, but not in homosexuality. Just because two people have an unnatural urge to imitate intercourse with a person lacking the wrong plumbing, it does not mean that society has to allow them to imitate marriage.

But scriptures show that man strayed from the original intent that God outlined in Genesis - one man and one woman.

Polygamy recorded in the Bible showed disastrous consequences due to the practice of polygamy - wives fighting and competing against each other, family strife, hostility and envy among siblings over who would have the preeminence, wives competing for having the greater affection from their husband and on and on.

Jesus once and for all in the New Testament said that marriage was to be between one man and one woman when he quoted Genesis saying that “or this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife and they twain shall be one flesh.”

They will say that the Genesis account of Sodom was about the horribleness of the attempted rape (of the angels), not homosexuality.

Problem is, is that before the angels even went into Sodom, Genesis chapter 13 says that the men of Sodom were “exceedingly wicked.”

And Jeremiah said that the people of Sodom were prideful, had no compassion for others BUT also mentions that they committed abomination - homosexuality.

Jude points out in the Book of Jude that it was the ever constant homosexuality and lust among the homosexuals (rampant even in the streets) that caused God to destroy the city.

if they want homosexual marriage then they should want all sorts of marriage so when the guy wants to marry his daughter they should support that or when those in the FLDS want to marry their 9 wives they should support that.

marriage is between one man and one woman full stop

not a fan of Huck but good for him for talking about this it is HIGH TIME the GOP got back to being about good traditional families which formed the backbone of this country.

if the libs want to talk about this then great and let the voters know where they stand on this issue and I bet they lose nearly every seat in this country.
Even last night a poster on here said we should not talk about it as it would not be good, what utter crap that is.
we need to talk about it a lot and what their agenda is about

nail on head.

every argument the homosexuals use for their special rights can be given to any other form of relationship or marriage.

there is a line in the sand and on one side man between one woman and the other line is anything goes.
I know which side I am on but will the left and the rats when it comes to election time

Yes sometimes...either in its serial mode in judaeo Christian secularized societies or in its concurrent form more in mohamedan and animist ones.

But polygamous behavior also precedes wars...as when it is prescribed by the values of the prevailing norms such as those allowed by the religion such as with Mormonism and Mohamadenism.
