Mika and Scarborough slaughter Mike Huckabee on live TV over his support for Kim Davis

Appearing in MSNBC’s Morning Joe this Wednesday, Mike Huckabee found himself on the receiving end of some powerful logic via hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, regarding the GOP candidate and former Baptist minister’s support of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

Appearing in MSNBC’s Morning Joe this Wednesday, Mike Huckabee found himself on the receiving end of some powerful logic via hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, regarding the GOP candidate and former Baptist minister’s support of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

“You and I both know — and I say this as a divorced man — that Jesus focused a lot more on lust, focused a lot more on the poor, focused a lot more on clothing the naked, visiting people in jail, taking care of the hopeless than he did on homosexuality,” Scarborough started out. “In fact, he never mentioned homosexuality.”

“There was no push for same-sex marriage when Jesus was teaching,” Huckabee replied.

Things got muddled when Scarborough demanded Huckabee clarify whether he opposes same-sex marriage on religious or legal grounds.

“I believe it’s a constitutional abomination but because of my faith I believe I have a responsibility to stand with those who are being persecuted not only for their faith, but for following the law, especially those who are being beaten up by the heavy hand of the judicial branch of government and put in jail,” Huckabee said.

“Would you support a clerk who would not give Kim Davis a third or a fourth marriage license?” Brzezinski chimed in, referring Davis’s four marriages.

Huckabee gave a rather lame attempt at a dodge, saying he didn’t “follow” the question.

“There’s a difference between marriage between a man and a woman and a marriage between two men or two women,” Huckabee said.

    To Mr Huckabee,
    The first amendment does. the right to peaceably assemble; also known as the right of free association. The 14th Amendment “Equal Protection under the law”. When gays are not allowed to get married it is discrimination violating their right to free association and to be equally protected under the law. What you and your corporate theocratic fascist that serve the oligarchs want, is to be above the law … demanding that your worship (if you can really call it that) is superior to the law of the land. This is not about “religious freedom” it is about not allowing “religious enslavement”. You can bare false witness all you want through those teeth of yours … what you cannot do is alter the fact that this is not about religion; it is about bigotry attempting to dominate under the facade of religion.

    You’re certainly not expecting the Huckster to grow a brain and a soul are you?

    Tell Mr Huckabee the declaration of independence. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    I wonder if he’d be standing by a muslim county clerk who won’t issue marriage licences to any woman not wearing a niqab? Of course he wouldn’t. This isn’t about religious freedom, its about Christian Priviledge.

    Not surprisingly, he won’t commit to answering Mika’s question about a clerk issuing a third or fourth marriage license. In doing so, he would not only have to commit to an opinion about Kim Davis’ past, but also to a question about the rights of a county clerk. He’s her hero at the moment, and those answers would flush him right down the crapper.

    Validating a homosexual relationship by signing her name to their “marriage” license is simply something that the clerk’s conscience, guided by her faith, will not allow her to do. I totally understand that. I’m beginning to understand why some call us the “great Satan”. We are allowing our feelings and emotions to have more influence on our view of morality than we ought. I understand why women, in general are this way because women are generally more emotional creatures but men…please open your eyes.

    “There was no push for same-sex marriage when Jesus was teaching,” Huckabee replied.

    Well, Huckster, that’s because same-sex marriage was legal in Rome at this time.

    There is no statute, however the state statute that says gays cannot marry or whatever has been struck down by the supreme court as being unconstitutional which is what the supreme court does, it interprets the constitutionality of laws. I think that you being a presidential wanna be and a senator you should know this. Instead of asking people to quote what statute makes it legal, this just makes you look foolish, because you know this, I learned it in high school, and so did you. So why don’t you come out of the closet and tell people who you really are, a fanatical Christian who wants to be President of the U.S.and start an agenda of implementing Christian Sharia Law. You will never make it pal. This is a country of immigrants of many faiths and was started on that premise, you are a believer in you can be any religion you want to as long as its mine.
