Mike Huckabee: "Now Queers Will Cause More "Deadbeat Dads!!"

Mike Huckabee just might be losing it:

"When the voters are so overwhelmingly [supportive of DOMA] what does the president believe he knows that citizens in all these other states don't," Huckabee said. Huckabee opposes gay marriage on the grounds that, according to him, it destroys traditional families. "There is a quantified impact of broken families," Huckabee said. "[There is a] $300 billion dad deficit in America every year...that's the amount of money that we spend as taxpayers to pick up the pieces because dads are derelict in their duties."

The connection? Are gay men luring straight men away from their families to the point that we spend $300 billion on single moms? 

Sorry girls, take a good look at that husband of yours!

Rotten Rhetoric? What Rotten Rhetoric? David Barton Does Not Want "Seculars" To Survive

In other words, David Barton, the pseudo-historian and USA-must-be-Christian-only freak wants to do away with people who are "secular."

From Right Wing Watch:

Barton cited a time in the past when the Chicago Tribune had published a new version of the New Testament and lamented that something like that could not happen today. The solution, Barton asserted, is for Christians to take control of the culture and media so that "guys that have a secular viewpoint cannot survive" because Christians will "chop that kind of news off":

Star Trek and Religion: "We're Not Having Any Part of It!!"

Just stumbled on to this. And it makes a lot of sense (unfortunately).
