Stewart v. Huck on gay marriage

Posted By on Wed, Dec 10, 2008 at 6:10 AM

Interesting. Jon Stewart gave Mike Huckabee most of the Daily Show last night, ostensibly to discuss his book. He worked him over on conflicting messages about government (in other words, Huck tells audiences what he thinks they want to hear on government.) But the centerpiece was a long discussion on gay marriage. Huckabee sounded moderate in his immoderation on the issue. Stewart calmly resisted stoutly. I suspect your view of the outcome depends on your view on the issue. Stewart particlarly criticized Huck's notion that homosexuality is a choice. Religion is more of a choice than sexual orientation, Stewart said.
