FOF--Mike Huckabee says of adoption by same-sex couples: ‘go get a puppy.’

Mike Huckabee says of adoption by same-sex couples: ‘go get a puppy.’:

There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, so we should accommodate them,” The Huck goes on to blast same-sex couples who want to raise kids:



He also affirmed support for a law in Arkansas that prohibits same-sex couples from becoming adoptive or foster parents. “I think this is not about trying to create statements for people who want to change the basic fundamental definitions of family,” Huckabee said. “And always we should act in the best interest of the children, not in the seeming interest of the adults.”

“Children are not puppies,” he continued. “This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?” (h/t ajc)
