Mike Huckabee spreads confusion about homosexuality and pedophilia

The reason why the Boy Scouts made such a ridiculous decision regarding keeping gays out is because people like former Governor and now radio talk show host Mike Huckabee. Listen how he and a caller who was molested as a child makes it seem that gays want to be in the Boy Scouts to "go after" children.

I feel sorry for this caller but he is wrong. A gay man did not molest him. A pedophile (a person who TARGETS children) molested him. And it's sad that Huckabee aided and abetted this poor man's ignorance:



This isn't accidental on Huckabee's part. He has in the past:
  • aligned himself with Southern Poverty Law Center – identified hate group Mass Resistance whose leader Brian Camenker once made a claim in 2006 that “gays were trying to get legislation passed to allow sex with animals” in Massachusetts,
  • attacked lgbt families by comparing them to people raising puppies,
  • bent over backwards to assure Ann Coulter that he wasn’t  “pro-gay” and “pro-sodomy.”

Just count this as another notch on his belt of homophobic ignorance.

I'm always astounded at the number of people who conflate pedophilia with homosexuality. Even educated people like my dad persist in believing that there are some gay people who are pedophiles. I've never seen any evidence of that.

PLEASE clarify the following statement:

I'm sure what you meant to say is that Southern Poverty Law Center is the organization that identified Mass Resistance as an "anti-gay hate group", so I doubt that you meant that Hucakbee aligned himself with them. Don't want anyone to read this and get the wrong idea about the SPLC.
