Republican presidential candidate Mike
Huckabee warned last week that the Supreme Court's recent ruling
striking down state bans on gay marriage will lead the U.S. to face
Huckabe made his comments at a Georgia
church's Independence Day celebration.
“1975, the wife of evangelist Billy
Graham said that ‘if God does not bring his judgment upon this
land, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah,’” Huckabee
said. “She said that 40 years ago. What would she say today
if she was still alive? When the Supreme Court just two weeks ago,
or as I call them, the Extreme Court, made the most radical decision
when it comes to the definition of marriage, it truly was a
remarkable day in which they did not vote for equality of something,
they voted for the redefinition of something.”
Huckabee went on to suggest that the
court's ruling was illegitimate.
“Far too many have already just said,
'Well, the court has ruled and that's it. That settles it. It's the
law of the land.' But I want you to realize that according to the
Declaration of Independence our government was founded on the laws of
nature and nature's god. And the courts of man can no more suspend
the definition and law of marriage than it could suspend the law of
gravity,” he said.
