Huckabee: My Position on Marriage Is the Same As Obama's Stance in 2008
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said this morning on “Fox and Friends” that the position he has held on traditional marriage is the same one that Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton all held back in 2008.
Huckabee said that Obama claimed that marriage was a biblical issue back in 2008. The president has since come out in support of gay marriage.
“Now if he’s changed his mind and it was a biblical view, one of three things has happened: he was lying then, he’s lying now, or the Bible got rewritten somewhere between 2008 and when he changed his mind in 2012, and he’s the only one that’s gotten the new version.”
Ohio Gov. John Kasich was asked at last night’s debate about how he’d explain his defense of traditional marriage to his children if they were gay.
“I happen to believe in traditional marriage, but I’ve also said the court has ruled … and I said we’ll accept it, and guess what, I just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay,” Kasich said. “Because somebody doesn’t think the way I do doesn’t mean that I can’t care about them or can’t love them. So if one of my daughters happened to be that, of course I would love them and I would accept them.”
Huckabee called the Ohio governor’s response “a good honest answer.”
