GOP presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee responded to President Obama’s Secretary of the Army nominee Eric Fanning.
Fanning is openly gay and would be the first open homosexual to head a branch of the U.S. military.
In a press release, Huckabee stated:
It’s clear President Obama is more interested in appeasing America’s homosexuals than honoring America’s heroes. Veterans’ suicide is out-of-control and military readiness is dangerously low, yet Obama is so obsessed with pandering to liberal interest groups he’s nominated an openly gay civilian to run the Army. Homosexuality is not a job qualification. The U.S. military is designed to keep Americans safe and complete combat missions, not conduct social experiments.
