Huckabee slams ‘judicial supremacy’

Mike Huckabee -- Prezography 2From Press Release


Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee promised to fight judicial tyranny and defend religious freedom regardless of how the Supreme Court rules in the upcoming Obergefell v. Hodges gay marriage case, which is expected in the next two weeks.

“The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Branch, and it is certainly not the Supreme Being,” he wrote in a formal response letter to more than 100 conservative leaders and organizations from across the country. He also criticized the court for failed rulings throughout history.

“These nine, unelected Supreme Court justices have rationalized the destruction of human life, defined African Americans as property and justified Japanese-American internment camps,” he wrote. “The notion that the Supreme Court is an exclusive entity empowered to interpret the Constitution is a modern myth, which has flourished since the 1960s. I reject this idea as just another flawed, failed feature of big government, inconsistent with what our founders fought a revolution to establish.”

Huckabee also called on fellow GOP candidates to join him in his fight, stating, “If you lack the backbone to reject judicial tyranny and fight for religious liberty, you have no business serving our nation as President of the United States.”
