Birds of a rabidly anti-gay feather flock to Mike
Wanna know the type of mindset that wants a Mike Huckabee presidency? Well, just look at who's helping the Huckster to gain ground in Michigan. This from CNN:
"We laid the groundwork," says Gary Glenn, one of the leaders of the movement. "The fact that he's even in a position to threaten Mitt Romney in his native state is a real statement to the depth of support he has here."
Glenn is a prime example of the sort of well-connected activist that has been essential to Huckabee's success. The president of Michigan's chapter of Don Wildmon's American Family Association, he co-wrote the state's successful anti-gay marriage amendment, which drew close to 60 percent of the vote in 2004. That effort also updated his already-packed addressbook with a new group of politically-savvy conservative Christian contacts eager to assist a presidential candidate who backed his own state's version of that measure."
Yes, that's right -- the American Family Association's Gary Glenn is working diligently to ensure that he'll have another president who will favor discrimination over diversity. The same Gary Glenn who, in addition to the aforementioned marriage ban, has:
-Sponsored the flying of a banner reading "Jesus Christ … HopeForHomosexuals.com” over a gay event.
-Tried to have a class at the University of Michigan stopped because of it's pro-gay content being fueled by taxpayer money (as if gays and lesbians don't also pay taxes!)
-Denied in the press that gays truly want monogamous relationships
-Once went on a national TV talk show to speak out on the "risk" of gay adoption
--and much, much more...
That's what's at risk in this election, folks. There is a possibility that we could put into office a man who, in terms of gay rights, could make George W. Bush look like Barney Frank. Those who cheer over our heartbreak are cheering most loudly for the Huckster. We have got to get out there and see to it that this country will soon wake up from the 7 year national nightmare through which we've all lived, not enter into an even more frightening level of terror!
