On NBCâ€™s Meet The Press this morning, host Tim Russert asked former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee if he believed â€œpeople are born gay or choose to be gay?â€ â€œI donâ€™t know whether people are born that way,â€ responded Huckabee, â€œbut one thing I know, that the behavior one practices is a choice.â€Huckabee conceded that â€œpeople who are gay say that theyâ€™re born that way,â€ but added that he believed that â€œhow we behave and how we carry out that behaviorâ€ is more important.
I see. So, Huckabee doesn't actually care if someone is gay, he cares whether or not gays are celibate.
And here I thought his years of bizarre criticism of the gay community were a sign of intolerance. I've clearly misjudged him.
