Apparently they aren't taking these down even though a good portion of them are not in support of him. Of course there's only 15 comments in total.

As much as I support your economic policies, I do find the slippery slope argument offensive. I'm a true conservative but my son is gay, much to my discontent, and I find these kinds of comments offensive.

If you look at what's happened in Mass., in Iowa and elsewhere you'll see that these equations (to bestiality, polygamy and other things) are ill founded and untrue, and demean people who otherwise could be brought to your side.

Whatever the context, I'm very disappointed if your remarks are close to this. And frankly what you've said will happen isn't happening the places gay marriage is legal.

To Louis Buren: as a Christian I find your assertion of "perversity" to be off the mark and also unsupported by scripture.

I think it's a shame that you would call this a gross distortion. What you say on the tape is pretty clear and the student paper took nothing out of context.

Remember what you said in the interview about the importance of honesty. Perhaps you should use that as a guide post for how you conduct yourself.

You're being both intellectually and morally dishonest here and you do nothing but bring shame on yourself by doing such.

Absolutely not -- nothing has been distorted. I have heard the audio recordings and they are, in fact, accurate. Mr. Huckabee, you won't get my vote.
