2008 Huckabee on Heteros

The Glorious Christian Leader’s position on AIDS is indefensible (but he defends it here), he’s soft on rape-and-murder (so long as you have the good sense to rape a relative of Bill Clinton’s), and he’s against gay marriage. Why would anyone think his position on straight marriage would be any more enlightened? From Daily Kos:
Huckabee’s opinion on gay marriage is out there, but we should also be publicizing Huckabee’s opinions on heterosexual marriage. Specifically, what he believes about a women’s role in a marriage.
In August of 1998, Huckabee was one of 131 signatories to a full page USA Today Ad which declared: “I affirm the statement on the family issued by the 1998 Southern Baptist Convention.” What was in the family statement from the SBC? “A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.”
The ad wasn’t just a blanket, “we support the SBC statement,” but rather highlighted details. The ad Huckabee signed specifically said of the SBC family statement: “You are right because you called wives to graciously submit to their husband’s sacrificial leadership.”
That’s a nice new frontrunner you’ve got there, Republicans.
