Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee stands strong with his anti-gay beliefs.

When it came to the issue of gay couples adopting children, he agreed with the state law to ban it.

“We should act in the best interest of the children, not in the seeming interest of the adults,” he said, then added, “Children are not puppies. This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?”

Furthermore, Huckabee went on to compare the potential repeal of this bill to the dangers of drug use, incest and polygamy.

“You don’t go ahead and accommodate every behavior pattern that is against the ideal,” he said. “That would be like saying, well, there are a lot of people who like to use drugs, so let’s go ahead and accommodate those who use drugs. 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.”
