Non-consensual child molestation is OK; it’s not like it was consensual gay sex after all

Guy-who-will-never-be-President Mike Huckabee knows exactly what God wants. God wants him to run for President. Not only that, God forgives his big supporters, the Duggars, who knew about child molestation going on in their family and prayed away the crime. Case closed!huck

Yes, for everyone else, the law would come down hard on them but these are Mike’s pals and he made sure the judge he appointed had ordered the police to destroy the report.

After all, it’s not like we’re talking about that icky gay stuff now, are we? The Duggars, on their TV show, argued that we can’t have gay rights because those gays molest children. They were saying that, without a hint of irony, while their son was molesting their very young daughters.

Huckabee doesn’t think that this is such a big deal. He agrees it was a bad “mistake” (his words, not mine) but thinks that God has forgiven the molester and so we should too.

And the victims? Well, too bad. Huckabee doesn’t care about victims. Michael Brown, a victim, was, after all, a “thug” in Huckabee’s words. Coincidentally, so were the peaceful Ferguson protestors who, unlike the Duggars, could never be forgiven. I wonder what made those people different in his eyes?

The good news is that conservatives who actually stand for something are abandoning Huckabee in droves. “You’ve lost my support,” say many Christians who had previously stood behind the rabid preacher.

Not that it matters much anyway. He has no chance of winning the nomination, much less the Presidency. But it is important to see how many of these people think — consensual sex between two loving adults is a bad, unforgivable sin and should be illegal; nonconsensual sex with a minor is forgivable and the law should ignore it.
