Former Arkansas governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee laments having to see gay couples on television.

Last week, Huckabee welcomed Concerned Women for America (CWA) president and CEO Penny Young Nance to his radio show. While discussing CWA's Willing 2 Stand campaign, which reaches out to college-aged conservatives, Nance said that young people opposed to gay rights were being “bullied” on college campuses.

Huckabee responded by saying that “every fear that people had” about the consequences of marriage equality “has in fact come true.”

“The very thing that many people and I know CWA was a part of this, saying, this is why the legalization of same-sex marriage is going to be a much bigger issue than just saying we let people love whoever they want to love, that's not the issue,” Huckabee said. “Will it force businesses – of course everyone will say, oh no people still have their rights, but they don't. And every fear that people had, has in fact come true. That this is being forced in textbooks on how marriage is depicted. We're now even seeing television commercials portraying same-sex couples. That's something I guess I didn't expect to see anytime soon.”
