USA: Mike Huckabee Says Evangelicals Will Leave if GOP Embraces Marriage Equality

GOPAnd this is the guy RNC head Reince Priebus wants to tap as the ambassador to the LGBT community> Seriously? Queerty reports:

“They might [support gay marriage]. And if they do, they’re going to lose a large part of their base because evangelicals will take a walk. And it’s not because there’s an anti-homosexual mood, and nobody’s homophobic that I know of. But many of us, and I consider myself included, base our standards not on the latest Washington Post poll, but on an objective standard, not a subjective standard… On this issue, I recognize the culture is moving away from the traditional standard, but it’s almost like saying, well, we have a basketball team and nobody on the team can hit the goal that’s 10 feet off the floor so we’re going to lower the goal down to six feet and that way everybody can slam dunk the ball.”

He’s the perfect spokesman for the GOP’s views on gays and marriage equality, don’t you think?
