Huckabee calls for MLK-like passive resistance to gay marriage ruling

What can I say?

Quote:
Washington (CNN)Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee urged Christian leaders to channel Martin Luther King, Jr. by resisting the Supreme Court's ruling in favor of same-sex marriage.

Huckabee pointed to King's Letter from Birmingham Jail, in which the civil rights leader advocated non-violent resistance to racism, saying that "an unjust law is no law at all."

If they want to have marches and protests, and be non-violent about it, fine. If they work at the court house and refuse to do their jobs, then they will need to find new jobs.

What I find ironic, no that's too mild, make it incredible, is the absurdity of equating a struggle for Civil Rights with a struggle against Civil Rights.

I don't actually believe that Huckabee is an idiot. He understands the difference. That makes it worse.

Maybe. OTOH, conservatives don't do irony. One thing's for sure though - He'd fold like a cheap suit after a night in the Birmingham jail.

I'm against gay "marriage," and I'm speaking as someone who was IN a "mock gay wedding" on campus some years back as part of a "Gay Wedding Day" event hosted by the campus gay students alliance. A friend of mine from my evening classes, it turned out she was a member of the alliance, thought I'd make a good groom, since I was doing evening classes and was always coming to class straight from my banking job wearing suits and bow ties all the time. My groom was an actual gay guy from the alliance. Our wedding actually took place in a church near campus, with me and him both in suits and bow ties, walking arm-in-arm down the aisle, organ music playing, in front of a church full of over 200 people. In retrospect, I wish I'd not gone through with it, but it goes to the complicity of academia in selling the notion of gay marriage to the younger generation.

And the point, other than your objection to it, is?

It's a question of what does less harm. It clearly harms people in love to deny them the right to get married like other couples. Don't see how those that don't like it are actually harmed by the practice.

They've been cramming the whole gay agenda down the collective throat of society through the media, even to young kids, in schools, all over the place. A college campus, as was the case of Gay Wedding Day, is less surprising than the rest. With some years and perspective, I'd just have to say there's a serious distinction between one man/one woman and same-sex marriage when it comes to the bedrock of society.
