Former 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.
