From Press Release

 

Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee made the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obergefell v. Hodges.

“The Supreme Court has spoken with a very divided voice on something only the Supreme Being can do-redefine marriage. I will not acquiesce to an imperial court any more than our Founders acquiesced to an imperial British monarch.  We must resist and reject judicial tyranny, not retreat.

“This ruling is not about marriage equality, it’s about marriage redefinition. This irrational, unconstitutional rejection of the expressed will of the people in over 30 states will prove to be one of the court’s most disastrous decisions, and they have had many.  The only outcome worse than this flawed, failed decision would be for the President and Congress, two co-equal branches of government, to surrender in the face of this out-of-control act of unconstitutional, judicial tyranny.

“The Supreme Court can no more repeal the laws of nature and nature’s God on marriage than it can the laws of gravity. Under our Constitution, the court cannot write a law, even though some cowardly politicians will wave the white flag and accept it without realizing that they are failing their sworn duty to reject abuses from the court. If accepted by Congress and this President, this decision will be a serious blow to religious liberty, which is the heart of the First Amendment.”

Yesterday, in advance of the ruling, Huckabee announced a statewide “Religious Liberty Townhall Tour” in Iowa, June 30-July 2.

The former governor also recently penned a USA Today editorial, “America can’t bow to judicial tyranny on health care or gay marriage,” which outlined some some of his concerns with the court and the threat to religious liberty. To read the editorial, click here.
