Staver Warns of Back-Alley Ex-Gay Therapy; Huckabee Wonders About Gay People Deciding To Be Straight
SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Thursday 04/18/2013, 4:00pm
Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver has been spearheading efforts to strike down a California law barring ex-gay therapy for minors. Today, he chatted with Mike Huckabee about Liberty Counsel’s case before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Staver warned that if the law stands, minors will be forced to turn to harmful, back-alley ex-gay therapy rather than to “licensed professionals.” Huckabee compared this to having an untrained person trying to set a broken leg. Of course, Staver and Huckabee both support personhood laws that would criminalize abortion in all cases and... MORE >

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has hailed Mike Huckabee as “a model for a lot of people in our party” on how to discuss topics such as marriage equality and abortion rights: “I always tell people: Listen to Governor Mike Huckabee…I don’t know anyone that talks about them any better.” Yes, the RNC chairman who supposedly wants the GOP to reach out to women, people of color and gays and lesbians named Huckabee as the role model for discussing social issues. As if that wasn’t already absurd, Huckabee is slated to headline the American Family Association... MORE >

Bauer: 'The Republican Party Would Literally Destroy Itself' If It Drops Anti-Gay, Anti-Choice Stances
SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Monday 03/25/2013, 1:55pm
Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families appeared on The Mike Huckabee Show today to discuss the upcoming marriage cases at the Supreme Court, where he reiterated his argument that the GOP would be winning more elections if focused more on opposing gay equality and reproductive rights. Like other conservative activists who have floated the creation of an anti-gay third party, Bauer told Huckabee that “the Republican Party would literally destroy itself if it switches on those issues” as “we are facing the possibility of a possible fissure here which would hurt...

Via Think Progress, we see that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus thinks that a good way for the GOP to win support from voters who have turned away from the party is to start sounding "reasonable" ... like Mike Huckabee: Priebus cited former governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas as an example of someone who could be “a model for a lot of people in our party” in terms of discussing issues like marriage and abortion. “I always tell people: Listen to Governor Mike Huckabee,” he said. “I don’t know anyone that talks about them any...

With every passing day, CPAC becomes even more of a joke. Mat Staver was awarded the "Defender of Liberty" award at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention. When it comes to Newt Gingrich, we are actually inclined to trust Roger Ailes. Bryan Fischer says writers at The National Review "should be ashamed of themselves" for supporting the presence of groups like GOPround at CPAC. Finally, the quote of the day from Mike Huckabee: "I've come to the conclusion that [President Obama] is not sincere about anything other than poking Republicans... MORE >

Glenn Beck calls for the formation of third party called the American Independence Party ... until he learns that one already exists which ran segregationist George Wallace for president. Oh good, another ultra right-wing House Republican is planning to run for the US Senate. Mike Huckabee begs the students at Liberty University to stand up and say "no" to the "unholy and ungodly" policies dominating American politics. Greg Quinlan says letting gays serve in the Boy Scouts will lead to widespread sexual molestation. Finally, the quote of the day from Rev... MORE >
