It’s difficult for opponents of gay marriage to stay on topic without wandering off to some harshly perverted place. It’s no different for a conservative presidential candidate. Here’s Mike Huckabee’s interview with belief.net where he lumps us gays with pedophiles, and bestiality.

BELIEF.NET: Is it your goal to bring the Constitution into strict conformity with the Bible? Some people would consider that a kind of dangerous undertaking, particularly given the variety of biblical interpretations.

HUCKABEE: Well, I don’t think that’s a radical view to say we’re going to affirm marriage. I think the radical view is to say that we’re going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal. Again, once we change the definition, the door is open to change it again. I think the radical position is to make a change in what’s been historic.

Class. Real class.
