Dear Gov. Huckabee,

You don’t know me, but I’m not far away.

I’ve even been to your place once, a couple years ago when I worked for Papa John’s.

I live just down the road at [redacted]. with my partner of 5 1/2 years and fiance. You might say we’re practically neighbors.

I’ve learned that you’ve thrown your lot in with Rev. Lou Engle, the guy who wants to see gay men like me imprisoned or killed. I can’t say I’m entirely surprised, but Mike, I am disappointed.

By saying this man’s position is righteous, you’re saying your neighbors should be killed on some bogus fears that we’re after your children. Is that any way to treat your neighbors?

My fiance and I live in peace and harm nobody. Can you say the same about your friends?

I want you to think and pray long and hard about this. And if you’ve got the time, I’d like to speak at length, heart-to-heart about how it is from our point of view. We’re over at [address redacted].
