Mike Huckabee: Alabama Ruling Far From Final Word on Gay Marriage

By    |   Tuesday, 10 Feb 2015 01:43 PM

In response to the rejection of the gay marriage ban in Alabama by a federal judge, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tells Newsmax TV that it's important to remember there are two other branches of government with a say in the matter.

"A lot of people say when the court rules, that settles it, and several governors have said that in their own states when a court makes some ruling," Huckabee told J.D. Hayworth and Miranda Khan on "America's Forum" on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court said it would not delay the ruling by an Alabama federal judge, who struck down the gay marriage ban in that state.

"In 1973, the Supreme Court said that abortion was a fundamental right. Did that settle it?" Huckabee asked. "Of course it didn't, because it involves a moral issue.

"I'm really disturbed how little people seem to understand about the three branches of government and their equality with each other, and that when one branch, in this case the judicial, makes a decision, it's just the judicial decision," Huckabee, a former presidential candidate and a possibly candidate for the 2016 presidential election, said.

"There is no such thing in the Constitution as judicial supremacy, where courts make a ruling and that supersedes both the executive and legislative branches," he said.
