What would a President Huckabee's family policy look like? Look to Iowa

by Jeremy Hooper

- Iowa Family Policy President Chuck Hurley has called for the "healing of openly gay students," as well as said that gays' civil marriages are "a degradation of God’s best design for the family."

- Director of Public Relations & Outreach Bryan English warned state residents that marriage equality must be rolled back, as it's "only a matter of time now before those of us who are still willing to speak the truth and say that homosexuality is wrong are the ones that they are calling criminals."

- The group has created a truly disgusting video featuring parents of a son who died of AIDS, with the suggestion being that Iowa marriage equality -- a concept that, one would logically assume, will actually encourage monogamy -- will actually lead to more "evils of the homosexual lifestyle."


And now on November 21, onetime (and likely future) Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will join this very same group to "celebrate" their successes in "defending the family":


"Celebrate the Family 2010"
(H/t: Maddow blog)

Right -- Huckabee's coming as a pastor not as a politician. A distinction that might mean something, were this event not 100% designed to inject faith into politics (particularly in regards to same-sex marriage).
