WASHINGTON -- Two possible GOP presidential contenders and four congressmen are slated to appear in a new documentary that claims the push for gay rights threatens Christianity.

"What kind of freedom of speech do we have if a person who expresses a biblical viewpoint about marriage is told they can't open their businesses in a location?" asks Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and prospective 2016 presidential candidate, in the trailer for the documentary "Light Wins: How To Overcome The Criminalization Of Christianity," which was first reported by Right Wing Watch.

The film is a project by socially conservative activist Janet Porter, who plans to release it later this month.

According to an email Porter sent to supporters last week, the documentary also features Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), as well as Reps. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) and Steve King (R-Iowa).

What are these paranoid rightwingers afraid of? Do they fear that homosexuality is contagious?

So they don't have the right to speak their mind, only you? Whats your point? The majority of Americans voted to define a marriage between that of a man and woman, then the courts reversed the will of the voters.

This is unsurprisingly ignorant, in addition to being a lie.

No jurisdiction has prohibited someone from opening a business because of the owner's faith.

Rand Paul has his own ideas about things. We all do. Personally, I think gay behavior is gross to be around or think about with too much detail, unless it's between two attractive lesbians. That's how I feel, but I don't support laws that discriminate. I don't care if two gays get married.

I can't speak for Rand's personal feelings or his commentary on what the Bible says about gays. As a politician, he's a libertarian and supporter of the Constitution. He agreed with the Supreme Court's striking down of DOMA. He doesn't think Washington should decide on who can and cannot marry. He agreed with Justice Kennedy who said the Defense of Marriage Act "wrote inequality into federal law and violated the Fifth Amendment’s protection of equal liberty".

"Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told ABC News he believes the Supreme Court ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act was appropriate, and that the issue should be left to the states. He praised Justice Anthony Kennedy for avoiding “a cultural war.”"

Low information radical lefties consistently fail to understand that the Christian right has the same 1st Amendment rights as dykes on bikes.

For you dishonest homo Nazis, there is a big diffence between being ant-homo and anti-homofascist. The non-dishonest among you are just too stupid to get that.
2 Dogs Fucking is of the dishonest ilk.

who cares. go worry over your alls elected idiots. they are far from saints sent to us from the heavens above. You liberals just don't have anything else. so it's bring up Mike Huckabee who is a nobody at this time. as for Paul I'll believe it when I get from people who don't LIE or play dirty politics in order to try and win something

No, it's the lie they want to propagate.

This is another ridiculous manifestation of the rightwing 'victimhood' mentality.

That many on the right are ignorant of, or have contempt for, Establishment Clause jurisprudence is nothing new. The Constitution is clear that church and state must remain separate, and when theists seek to codify subjective religious dogma into secular laws, and those un-Constitutional laws are appropriately invalidated by the courts, they make the inane and unfounded claim that their 'religious liberty' is being 'violated,' when in fact nothing could be further from the truth.

The point is to demonstrate that those who say the 'will of the voters' was 'reversed' by the courts are ignorant and wrong.

The makers of the documentary are at liberty to make their film, and they're at liberty to exhibit how ignorant and wrong they are, just as those who correctly understand that the people have no authority to deny a class of persons their civil rights are also at liberty to tell the makers of the documentary that they are indeed ignorant and wrong.

Nowhere you can follow
It should be a crack up to watch, especially the bible quotes and justifications. If Rand Paul and Huckabee want to screw up their chances to become President though, they are welcome.

I have a vision of the 2016 presidential debate, moderated by Gwen Ifill.

Gwen Ifill: Hillary Clinton, how about that weather?

Clinton: It's been windy, Gwen, and my flight almost got cancelled. And then I had to flee the tarmac under a maelstrom of enemy gunfire.

Gwen Ifill: Sounds dramatic, and heroic. Now, Rand Paul, you hate all gays. Why?

Rand Paul: Well, that's not true. In fact my staff has more than a few...

Gwen Ifill: Next question. Mrs. Clinton, your hair looks great. What's your secret? ...


Eh, maybe that's a slight exaggeration. There's a grain or two of truth in it.
