Should Mike Huckabee be Allowed to Adopt Puppies? Hypocrisy Poll Results

     Should Mike Huckabee, who went on a homophobic rant last week, telling gays who want to adopt that "children are not puppies," be allowed to adopt puppies?


     This was the question of the Holy Blog's latest hypocrisy poll


     You voted.  


     Here are the results.


     28% of those polled voted "Yes: Puppies need Huckabee's Jesus to be saved from puppy purgatory."


     71% voted "NO: Huckabee should not be allowed to teach his version of right wing Christian, hatred, fear, and discrimination to cute, vulnerable, innocent, needy, and malleable puppies."


     Either way, we're all hypocrites: the "no" votes for allowing Huckabee's hypocritical, homophobic ways to be passed onto poor little puppies and the "yes" votes for wanting equal puppy civil rights, while voting to limit Huckabee's puppy adoption rights.


     Oy vey.  What is a gay puppy enthusiast to do?  And, do all gay dogs go to heaven?

Lt. Dan Choi Voice of Gay Rights Movement Speaks at Harvard

     Soldiers in Afghanistan are making Lady Gaga videos on your tax dollar.  Defense Secretary Robert Gates is flip-flopping on Don't Ask, Don't Tell caving to the conservative, homophobic lobby, by saying that the military needs more time to figure out what to do with gays in the military (as if there aren't any in the military now, reference the Lady Gaga video).  President Obama is dragging his heels to overturn the legislation.  This is not change.  This is enabling the Gospel According to Hate upon which DADT was founded.

     But one gay man soldiers onward, fighting for LGBT equality, in the military, in marriage, in civil law.  Engaging and leading others in acts of non-violent civil disobedience and speaking calmly, logically, and eloquently, Lt. Dan Choi is the courageous, uncompromising, and authentic voice that the LGBT civil rights movement needs for the final push to full equality.

     Here are a series of embedded videos in which Lt. Dan Choi speaks at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy, Jr. Forum on April 29, 2010.
