There are a number of different situations that may be considered America’s biggest threat. There is terrorism, whether may be global or domestic. The United States must also come up with a plan to deal with automation and how that affects employment opportunity. And of course, climate change threatens our very well being.
For conservative pundit, Mike Huckabee, one issue trumps all of those. The former Arkansas governor is claiming that acceptance of LGBTQ people represents the country’s biggest threat.
Huckabee told The Christian Post, “The biggest threat to biblical principles today is the failure to apply a biblical standard of maleness and femaleness. We are creating this illusion that there is no gender, there is no identity, and I’m blaming the Christian Church.”
The radio host also feels that children who have same sex parents are being done a disservice. He continued, “We should never pretend that it is as good as a loving mother and father in a home where a child sees both genders play out their norms because that’s the modeling of behavior that would be ideal for a child to grow up in.”
Huckabee has faced repercussions for his anti-gay views in the past. He resigned from the charitable board of the Country Music Association following backlash to his appointment. Huckabee titled his resignation post, “Hate Wins.”
