Mike Huckabee is Friggin Crazy

Okay, so he doesn't believe in evolution. Fine, lots of people don't. Then we found out he wanted to quarantine people with AIDS... in 1992. Alright, that's a little out there, and pretty callous for a so-called Christian.

But check out these quotes from his 1998 book Kids Who Kill: Confronting Our Culture of Violence.
It is now difficult to keep track of the vast array of publicly endorsed and institutionally supported aberrations—from homosexuality and pedophilia to sadomasochism and necrophilia.

Wait, what?

The Huckster's not a fan of us atheists either:
Men who have rejected God and do not walk in faith are more often than not immoral, impure, and improvident (Gal. 5:19-21). They are prone to extreme and destructive behavior, indulging in perverse vices and dissipating sensuality (1 Cor. 6:9-10). And they—along with their families and loved ones—are thus driven over the brink of destruction (Prov. 23:21).

Gotta love a presidential candidate who thinks (Gal. 5:19-21) is a good citation in a book about the causes of teen violence.

I even went to the old Bible to look up said verse in Galatians. I would counter what it states to say that those without a moral foundation have a tendency to lead lives of violence. Yet, and here's the irony, the Atheists I have known over the years, while they may reject the conventional concept of God, do adhere to a strong moral code and spirit of social justice.

As for the former quote, that's just woefully misguided logic and the same tired old argument that homosexuality has some inherent link to perverse sexual practices.

THIS is the GOP front runner? Very sad.
