'Mike Huckabee support group teaming up with anti-gay hate group for SCOTUS brief' & other Thursday midday news briefs

Mike Huckabee has questions to answer about a 'support group.'
In SCOTUS brief, Mike Huckabee support group insists homosexuality is 'significant public health risk' - The Family Research Institute is an SPLC-designated anti-gay hate group. This is mostly because its founder and head, Paul Cameron has been kicked out of or censured by several medical groups over the years, including the American Psychological Association and the American Sociological Association, for the blatantly hideous methodologies he uses to smear the lgbt community.  Among other things, Cameron claims that:
  • Lesbians are more likely to die in car wrecks,
  • Gay men molest children at a high rate and are more likely to be serial killers,
  • Gay men stuff gerbils up their rectums,
  • Gays and lesbians in the military are more likely to rape their heterosexual counterparts.
So why is a Mike Huckabee "support group" teaming up with this group to submit a brief  to SCOTUS against marriage equality?  It's definitely yet another thing to put on the list to ask Huckabee should he start again with the "intolerant, radical gay" lie. Or better yet, if he should run for president.

Yes pursue the bans but get creative as well. Use criminal code fraud laws against these groups. Hit them with tons of lawsuits.

I want to see a law that holds parents legally responsible for driving their child to suicide. The only thing that makes me angrier than Leelah’s death is the fact that her parents can kill their child and walk away free. I know many will argue that they didn't intend on killing her. I don't believe that. They are murderers, and should be treated as such.
