Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee weighed in tonight on "The Kelly File" about Indiana's new religious freedom law.  

Huckabee responded to Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy's comments stating that none of the people who would defend the Religious Freedom Restoration Act are qualified to be president of the United States.  

The possible 2016 presidential contender said that "no one is qualified to be president if they don't respect the First Amendment and religious liberty."

"This is the most bizarre thing," Huckabee said. "This is a manufactured crisis by the left. If they manufactured as many products as they do crises, like this one, which is an utterly phony attempt to create some kind of division, 92 million Americans who are jobless would have jobs."

He remarked that he's never seen something so "off the mark" in his entire life.

Huckabee said that Indiana's law does not discriminate in any way. 

"There's nothing in the RFRA that in any way says a thing about homosexuality, gay marriage," he stated. 

Huckabee also said that it breaks his heart to see "major corporations fold up like a cheap tent in a wind storm."

“Discretion is something that every American should have the right to exercise,” he said. “In America, more voices are better than fewer.”
