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 God's judgment.

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.
