Huckabee: The GOP Needs To Get Right With God “Or I’m Gone”

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 12.59.02 PMFormer Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee tore into the GOP over the gay marriage issue. Huckabee stated that he would leave and go independent if Republicans don’t renew the fight against homosexuals and abortionists. “If the Republicans want to lose guys like me and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people, go ahead and just abdicate on this issue,” Huckabee said.

Governor Huckabee is likely exasperated by the Supreme Court decision which declined to address lawsuits over gay marriage amongst the many states. The decision was seen as a great victory by gay marriage advocates, and many citizens pressed forward for legal recognition of their marriage contracts. “Well, the courts have spoken and it’s an important voice,” Huckabee says, “but it’s not the voice of God and the Supreme Court isn’t God.”

Huckabee pleaded with governors to stand against the will of their people. “What I’m hoping will happen,” Huckabee said, “is that somewhere there will be a governor who will simply say, ‘No, I’m not going to enforce that’” same-sex marriage ruling.

    And this is why I can’t stand Republicans….

    • PaxMentis

      Because they won’t base everything on what “god” says?

      • Nathanael Ginn

        No, because they put religion before government instead of accepting that others have different beliefs. I am a libertarian and do not believe in using the government to push any belief system regardless of what my beliefs are.

        • PaxMentis

          Which part of Huckabee threatening to leave the GOP because they will NOT focus on religious based issues are you having difficulty understanding? Are you missing the whole idea of his statements or just spouting “bad Republicans” without bothering to actually look at what is being said.

          • Nathanael Ginn

            There are to many Republicans like him out there. Every Republican I have talked to in my state acts just like him on these issues and say “The government has to side with us because we are right and everyone else is wrong.” When I have heard more of his type of crap from Republicans than I haven’t, that is exactly why I don’t like the party. They also say they aren’t changing their stance either, just no trying harder than they used too. I’m not sure what is wrong with what I said other than you want to pick a fight.

    So leave already. Huckabee you are a socialist. The Republican Party has become a socialist organization since its been infiltrated by the “compassionate conservative”

  • bye, Mike! you’re of the type who loves big government, as long as it’s THEIR version of it. we don’t want you, we don’t need you.

    Yeah, arguing for God is good and all, but forcing a certain religion upon others doesn’t fly with God or the Constitution. However, that picture involving Jesus is outright wrong. Love others, but judging is an entirely different story. Christians are to help other Christians, and pagans, and everyone else, and judging whether they need help or are doing wrong is necessary to make the choice to help. Either way, Christianity is voluntary, gubmint shouldn’t be involved in marriage.

    See ya’. Wouldn’t want to be ya’ you bigoted douche. We true Republicans never wanted you in the first place.

    The take over of the Republican party by fundamentalist fanatics like Huckabee caused many people to leave the party and become Independents. Personally I was never a Republican. 40 years ago when I turned 18 I registered as a Libertarian. I would often vote for Republican candidates when there were no Libertarian candidates. More and more often I simply abstain rather than vote for the Republicans because of their fundamentalism. The Republican party is its own worst enemy.
