Over the weekend, Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee told a crowd of conservatives that marriage equality and abortion rights have put America in a “dangerous place.”

Huckabee made his comments at an All Lives Matter summit in Illinois.

“I would suggest that if man believes that he can redefine marriage, it's apparent that man believes he has become his own god,” Huckabee told the crowd. “And this is a dangerous place for America to be.”

Huckabee, an ordained Southern Baptist minister and ardent opponent of LGBT rights, has repeatedly called on Christians to ignore the Supreme Court's ruling striking down gay marriage bans in all 50 states.

Elsewhere in his speech, Huckabee said that he was convinced “this country can get back on its feet, but it can't do that until it first gets back on its knees and repents” for legal abortion.

On Tuesday, Fox News announced the 10 candidates who will participate in the first televised Republican presidential debate on Thursday. Huckabee made the list.
