"Religion Is Far More of a Choice Than Homosexuality"

Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart used his entire second segment with Mike (I Don't Heart) Huckabee to discuss the issue of Gay Marriage.

Mr. Stewart's argument in support of Gay Marriage is heartfelt and brilliant. He should be commended and praised for this segment.

Huckabee talks about marriage "anatomically," arguing that marriage is used to "create the next generation."

We're living on a planet that can barely sustain the ever-growing human population, and yet, the idea that two men or two women would, instead of creating new children, adopt children in need of a home and give them a stable and loving support system, is offensive and inconceivable to people like Huckabee. I guess if we don't procreate, then we are useless.

Jon Stewart's support of gay parents says it best...

"I would suggest that a loving, gay family with a financially secure background beats the Hell out of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline any day of the week."

I read a really good column in Newsweek that turns the biblical arguments against gay marriage on their ear. In the comments section, true to form, were those who cling pathetically to the bare text of the Bible, even when it's just been refuted. As one commenter on Alex's blog said, we will NEVER convince those people, because they don't have the CAPACITY to reason or think critically. To them, that's some sort of "arrogance" and therefore, heresy.

And THOSE people want to create the "next generation??"

Let's start hoarding water and weapons NOW.

We may not be able to change the minds of bigots, but we can certainly reward those who are on our side.
That being true,
note to self: remember to blow John Stewart.

It embarasses me to admit that idiot is from the same state as I am. Huckabee is first and foremost a Baptist preacher. His bigoted outlook on the world will not change because he won't get his head out of his ass and an ancient text that he picks and chooses what he wants out of it.

I can't even watch the rest of the interview because my blood pressure shoots up every time Huckabee opens his fucking mouth.

I'm really confused by the title of huckabee's book. Common Sense: Inside the grassroots movement that's changing America. Is he implying that there's some sort of new conservative movement? um...Isn't 1994 over? I'm confused... And...yes...can we please get in line to blow John Stewart?

That concept that marriage is for the purpose of procreation is so flawed. Unmarried heteros have kids all the time! Some married couples can't or choose not to have kids, but their marriage are still legally binding.
