Huckabee attack evolution

"Proof that there is a creative God and that no evolutionary evils were behind His making of man lies easily in our own two hands. Only God could have foreseen that man by the 20th century would invent the QWERTY board and thus be in need of 10 fingers. Only God could have foreseen that by the 19th century man would need to be uniquely identified at crime scenes and thus God gave him unique fingerprints. And, only God could have foreseen our teen's need for an opposable thumb in the 21st century....to send text messages, of course."

And only God would have known we would need a chin for changing pillowcases.

And He made our fingers just the right size to fit in the dials of the old rotary telephones. Who knew...well, we know the answer don't we.

Huckabee called homosexuality 'sinful'

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, surging in Iowa polls in the Republican presidential race, wrote on a questionnaire while running for U.S. Senate in 1992 that homoxsexuality is "aberrant" and "sinful."

"I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk," Huckabee wrote in the questionnaire for The Associated Press, which reported the answer on Saturday.

In another answer that could damage his standing in the presidential race, Huckabee wrote on the questionnaire that AIDS research was receiving an unfair amount of federal money. Instead, he said celebrities should pay for the research themselves.

The revelations could dampen the enthusiasm for the candidacy of Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, because the language clashes with his image as a compassionate, sunny leader.

It also could cause Republican voters to reevaluate whether he would be effective at winning swing voters in a general election that looks trying for the GOP.

Huckabee also wrote that he wanted to quarantine AIDS patients, according to AP:

"If the federal government is truly serious about doing something with the AIDS virus, we need to take steps that would isolate the carriers of this plague. ... It is difficult to understand the public policy towards AIDS. It is the first time in the history of civilization in which the carriers of a genuine plague have not been isolated from the general population, and in which this deadly disease for which there is no cure is being treated as a civil rights issue instead of the true health crisis it represents."

Huckabee's written public statements came during his initial run for public office, which he lost to incumbent Democratic Sen. Dale Bumpers.

A spokesperson for the governor was preparing a response, which Politico will post immediately.

And this is where the quick backpedaling might come in handy.

And God created Huckabee because He foresaw the need of a neo-fascist candidate in the 2008 presidential election.

Isolation was a seriously considered alternative form of containment during the early years of the AIDS epidemic. Now that we know more about it, that wouldn't seem necesary in our culture. However, it could still prove useful in some African areas where for some using infection prevention techniques is not acceptable. But you might note that even in our country it is illegal to knowingly risk the infection of a sex partner when you are HIV positive. And that is a form of isolation, isn't it?
