|Above: the thing it's not like. At all.|
By any stretch of the imagination.
"This is not just a political issue, it is a biblical issue. And unless I get a new version of the scriptures, it's really not my place to say Ok, I'm just going to evolve. It's like asking somebody who's Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli."
|"Holy shit, 40 cubits? Really God? You know|
there are literally millions of species, right?"
Secondly, to keep with Huckabee's Jewish deli owner analogy, this would be like said restaurateur quitting the deli business, building an entire political career out of being an asshole to people who who enjoy pork and/or shellfish and then hosting a radio show on which they advocate for a law that would require everybody to keep kosher.
|Although if it would end this stupid bacon craze, I'd be willing to hear him out.|
|"Whoa, whoa, whoa...lots of my|
friends are godless deviants."
Look, admittedly I don't know Mike Huckabee and I don't know who his friends are but c'mon. Are we really supposed to buy that he spends his day fighting against marriage equality on the grounds that it violates his moral code and then invites his gay friends over for dinner and a sermon on how much god hates them? That seems awkward, and kind of unlikely.
|"C'mon hon, I know you hate going over to the Huckabee's for dinner but it won't be that bad. I mean, sure,|
we'll have to hear about how we're going to hell, but the Hendersons will be there. Oh, and Janet's making flank steak."
*But the gays don't heart back.
