    Just too good not to post. I've been to these guys' restaurant. It's good.

    I sure hope he does.

    The comments he made about gay adoption are disgusting. :mad:

    Well, it was very proactive of them to invite him. He should take them up on it and experience what their family is like for himself.

    He won't accept the invite. He might get AIDS or some other STD, just by being in their presence:rolleyes:

    What's a gay dinner, anyway? Does it involve lots of zucchini?

    +1. It was very good of them to invite Huckabee to have a dinner with them. The comments that he made in regard to gay adoption are completely outrageous, hurtful and sickening. It was out of line for him to make comments like that without seeing gay couples and families first hand, and seeing how they operate. If he did that, I'm sure he would find that they're much like everyone else and there is nothing to be afraid of. Then again, he is Mike Huckabee!

    Very well done on their part. I hope he accepts, but he won't because he's a douche.


    Lol

    Sorry both you and I are wrong. It's "The Gay Cancer".

    If it were very well-attended, and wasn't just gonna be an attack-fest on him, he would go. However, I suspect that one of these is not true. One of the big problems Christians these days have is being scared and trying to isolate themselves from people they disagree with. I think Huckabee is above that. But he has other factors to consider as well. Like the fact that the media would paint the story as negative no matter what he did or what happens. He would be either a gay-lover (media trying to hurt his base) or gay-hater (media trying to reinforce the idea that he hates gays). Both would be costly and negative. So I suspect he won't go.

    Bigots are usually cowards - hence the fear aspect. I really can't see him going into a situation like that.

    I was thinking more of franks and beans or meat and potatoes. ;)

    It would be cool if he'd go to the dinner, but I feel that there would be too many political implications for him and will therefore decline the invite. :(
    It's a bloody shame too because I'm sure it could do a lot of good in the long run for gay rights.

    Trust me- he'd win more fans if he got over his bigotry.

    He would, but he would also lose his entire (ignorant) base.

    I doubt he is far-sighted enough to think along those lines, Lee.

    So what? He'd gain just as much as he lost, if not more. Plus he'd be (gasp) doing the right thing.

    I agree with you...... but, unfortunately, people like him don't see it that way.

    When you baselessly attack an entire group of people for no reason, you tend to get into lose-lose situations.

    The puppy analogy was most unfortunate, considering a certain "incident" in the Huckabee family past. An extremely poor choice of words on the Huckster's part...
