“If any state in the union could use some Festivus cheer on gay rights,” Stevens said. “It’s Arkansas. Given all the craziness in your state, who better than to spread the equality of all and stop bullying young boys and girls because of their sexual identity than Mike Huckabee.”
Stevens claimed he contacted to the former Arkansas governor recently to voice support for the gay rights monument. He said he hasn’t heard back from the Republican presidential candidate. Huckabee disagrees with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision this summer allowing gay marriage.
“Why? Why does it matter who I love or sleep with?” Stevens said. “I’ve learned personally that love is really hard to find. True love is something that should be respected and admired not something that’s illegitimized or banished to the fringes.”
