Speaking at a Georgia church’s Independence Day celebration, Mike Huckabee warned a that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision will soon cause the U.S. to face God’s judgment.
“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.”
After criticizing President Obama for his stance on same-sex marriage, Huckabee said that people must defy the court’s decision with the same courage as the nation’s founders, adding that “the courts of man can no more suspend the definition and law of marriage than it could suspend the law of gravity.”
Huckabee ended his remarks by claiming that America may “go down the tubes” unless it decides to “reject the lost vision of secularism.”
“We’re not going to stand by and let the Extreme Court completely change the definition of family,” Huckabee said.
