Mike Huckabee Says Gay Marriage Legalization Will Lead To Legalizing Polygamy
The recent Supreme Court decision not to uphold the controversial Proposition 8 bill has been met with mixed reactions in and outside of Washington but this latest outlandish statement from future Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee just might take the cake.

Former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee wasted no time on Saturday explaining to his Fox News audience why the Supreme Court’s historic decisions last week on the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 set the United States down the road towards legal polygamy and bigamy.
“I’m neither a homophobe nor a hater,” he told his audience, before comparing same-sex marriage to polygamy and painting the Supreme Court justices “extremists.”
The Huffington Post flagged Huckabee’s comments, made during his eponymous Fox News show on Saturday night:
“If we’re determined to change the definition of marriage to accommodate how people feel and what they wish to do because of their mutual consent, then we should immediately release those incarcerated for practicing polygamy or bigamy,” Huckabee said. “And, frankly, let’s make all consensual adult behaviors legal, whether prostitution, assisted suicide, or even drinking 16 ounce sodas in New York City.”
Unfortunately for Huckabee, he sounds like both a homophone AND a hater. SMH.
