Another issue Huckabee stands out on!

People have pressed the point that Romney has had a change of heart. Now, at least on gay marriage, we find out different.

On December 16, 1997 2007, that's just this year folks, less than a year from the Presidential elections, Romney gave a wonderful Christmas present to Homosexuals. While talking about ENDA, Romney said, "At the state level. I think it makes sense at the state level for states to put in provision of this." What?! This is a man who is trying to frame himself as for traditional marriage??!!! Given to his credit he does go on to say, "I would not support at the federal level, and I changed in that regard because I think that policy makes more sense to be evaluated or to be implemented at the state level." Here he uses a federalist guise to try and appear fully "anti-gay" but when the Federalist facade is taken off, what you are left with is a gay supporter quaking in his boots at what Christian concervatives would do to him if he doesn't try to act "pro-marriage." Peter LaBarbera, a long time Christian conservative leader, and founder of Republicans for Family Values said this:

"Laws that treat homosexuality as a civil rights are being used to promote homosexual ‘marriage,’ same-sex adoption and pro-homosexuality indoctrination of schoolchildren. These same laws pose a direct threat to the freedom of faith-minded citizens and organizations to act on their religious belief that homosexual behavior is wrong."

He also warned,

"Given Romney’s extensive pro-homosexual record and willingness now to depart from principle on this crucial issue, should we trust a ‘President Romney’ not to reverse course again on federal pro-homosexual laws such as ‘Hate Crimes’ and ENDA?"

Can we expect someone like this who will not stand up for Christian conservatives, even on a popular issue, to stand up on an unpopular issue such as abortion? Can I support a man who will undermine our Christian conservative values? This is why I have place my support behind Mike Huckabee! Check out his stand on marriage.
