Same-sex Marriage 'Is Not Law;' Huckabee Boldly Defends Traditional Marriage
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Mike Huckabee continues to stand up for traditional marriage which encourages and strengthens conservatives. When asked how to overturn the Supreme Court Obergefell opinion, he said, "on the same sex marriage decision I would simply say it is not law." This was at the National Religious Liberties Conference held in Iowa last week.
The 2016 presidential hopeful believes a president is to "uphold the Constitution," which says nothing about redefining marriage. The founders wrote the Constitution and outlawed homosexuality.
"The courts can't make law. If the president surrenders the entire executive branch power to the judicial, he's surrendered to the doctrine of judicial supremacy, which leads us to what Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, and Lincoln all call judicial tyranny," Huckabee continued.
Further clarifying on same-sex marriage he said, "It is not law because the people's elected representatives have not made it law and there is nothing in the Constitution that gives the Supreme Court the power to make a law. They are the Supreme Court. They are not the supreme branch or the Supreme Being. They can't make law."
Known as a Washington outsider who wants to fix the problems in government, Huckabee has unique experience to be Commander in Chief. The former Governor of Arkansas balanced the budget every year for 10 years and had 94 tax cuts.
Huckabee received an "A" grade on the American Christian Voting Guide based on Scriptural qualifications. This Bible-based voters guide is put together by Rev. Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Church.
"Simple ninth grade civics... reminds us that there are three branches of government that are equal... There are separation of powers and there are checks and balances," Huckabee continued.
"When people say what can we do? Let's introduce a Constitutional amendment. No, let's just... exercise the power that is already within the Constitutional authority... The president [should] simply say, 'Thank you for your opinion but we shall ignore it because there's nothing in the Constitution that affirms that and we are not going to impose upon all 50 states something that the federal government has no control over-which is the definition of marriage,'" Huckabee said.
"Huckabee is the strongest presidential candidate to uphold traditional marriage," said the pastor who's inspiring book, "God's Plan for the USA," reveals seven Bible Keys that solve the USA's crisis and gives God's answer for the USA's future.
