Rosie O’Donnell corners Mike Huckabee about adoption by gay parents

Mike Huckabee went on Rosie O’Donnell’s Sirius radio show to respond to his comments about gay parents. Huckabee recently gave an interview to a paper at the College of New Jersey in which he insulted gays who want to parent – telling them “children are not puppies.”

In part, Rosie says “…I’m mentioning that there are half a million kids in foster care in America. And 99% of them were raised by heterosexual parents. And if there are homosexual people that want to take in and love these discarded children that the state is not raising and taking care of, to have public officials deem homosexuals unworthy of parenting is disastrous for the nation, for equality, and for humanity – and Mike – for Christianity.”


Says Huckabee: “Well, you know Rosie, again, I think people have to make their own decision about what a family ought to look like and I’m not going to judge you or judge anybody else because I know there are so many loving people who are in same-sex relationships and they have adopted children and they love those kids. I’m not going to judge them. I’m simply not going there.”
