Right Wing Watch:
Mike Huckabee was joined by Concerned Women for America head Penny Nance yesterday to discuss CWA’s new campaign, Willing 2 Stand, designed to reach out to young people on their opposition to abortion rights and marriage equality. During most of the interview, Nance maintained that conservatives on college campuses were “bullied” and had trouble articulating their views on topics like gay rights.
The former governor and presidential candidate said that “every fear that people had” about the consequences of legalizing same-sex marriage “has in fact come true,” arguing that people have lost “their rights” in states with marriage equality.
Huckabee seemed especially sad that he now has to see “television commercials portraying same-sex couples” while textbooks are “forced” to mention gay marriage.
"The very thing that many people and I know CWA was a part of this, saying, this is why the legalization of same-sex marriage is going to be a much bigger issue than just saying we let people love whoever they want to love, that’s not the issue. Will it force businesses—of course everyone will say, oh no people still have their rights, but they don’t. And every fear that people had has in fact come true, that this is being forced in textbooks on how marriage is depicted, we’re now even seeing television commercials portraying same-sex couples, that’s something I guess I didn’t expect to see anytime soon."
Yes what a shame that the family dynamic reinforced by 50's sitcoms, and which never ACTUALLY had any relation to how most households functioned, has been upended by a more realistic demonstration of American families in 2013.
By the way this program Willing 2 Stand, has a video that you really must see to believe.
As has been well documented I am not a religious person so forgive me for being obtuse, but I have to wonder just how Christians expect young people to participate in society, the "world" if you will, if they are taught that they are above it or should remain disconnected from it?
It appears to me that these kids are being militarized in anticipation for some great culture war, and that along with the Right Wing 2nd Amendment fetish does not exactly help me to sleep at night.
I have read the New Testament and this was NOT my take away from the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Did I miss something?
