Despite being dubbed a “hateful bigot” and “mean-spirited conservative” by left-leaning websites, Mike Huckabee has said he will not apologize for identifying the redefining of gender and sexual identity as the “greatest threat” to the moral fiber of America.
On Saturday, Huckabee took a moment on his TV political commentary program on TBN to address the backlash he experienced following an interview with The Christian Post.
“I need to warn you that according to some recent news articles, you are watching a show hosted by a hateful bigot,” Huckabee told the audience. “And that was about the nicest thing that was said about me.”
The host of “Huckabee” explained that during his interview with CP, he was asked to identify what he believes is the biggest threat facing culture.
“So I replied that I thought it was the abandonment of the biblical standards of family, the view that there is no such thing as maleness or femaleness anymore, and that marriage doesn’t really matter, that divorce is no big deal and that any form of marriage is equally valid, not just between a male and a female,” he said.
“I also said that it’s that fathers don’t seem to be that important to the development of a child, that gender is fluid, and that we can just choose a gender based on how we feel rather than how we were created, and that the Bible is some old book that no longer represents our changing culture,” he continued.
The former Southern Baptist pastor said that since CP’s article went live, “virtually every left-wing publication in the country” has blasted him for “homophoboic and anti-LGBTQ hate,” including Huffington Post, Right Wing Watch, Pink News and others.
