Think Of the Children

Mike Huckabee perpetuates the lie that being gay means you’re a pedophile.

Though the Boy Scouts of America has not yet explained what conclusions led it to reaffirm that discriminating against gay scouts and leaders was “absolutely the best policy” for its organization, plenty of conservatives have made clear which fallacious anti-gay myth they believe motivated the decision. On his radio show yesterday, Mike Huckabee spelled out in no uncertain terms that he believes the policy is “right” because it protects boys from abuse.

Based on that logic, no boys ought to be allowed near a priest of the Catholic Church or the football program at Penn State.
