Mike Huckabee: Presidents Should Obey God Instead Of Supreme Court (VIDEO)

After falling on his sword on Duggar Mountain, Mike Huckabee appeared on Fox News Sunday to reiterate that he would not obey the Supreme Court if it rules same-sex marriage constitutional.

During an interview with Fox News host Chris Wallace, the defender of conservative “Christian” child molesters railed against “judicial supremacy” and said presidents should obey the “Supreme Being” instead of the Supreme Court:

WALLACE: “You seemed to indicate that as president, you wouldn’t necessarily obey court rulings, even the Supreme Court. But, Governor, we have operated under the principle of judicial review since the Marbury v. Madison case in 1803.”

HUCKABEE: “Presidents have understood that the Supreme Court cannot make a law, they cannot make it, the legislature has to make it, the executive branch has to sign it and enforce it. And the notion that the Supreme Court comes up with the ruling and that automatically subjects the two other branches to following it defies everything there is about the three equal branches of government. The Supreme Court is not the supreme branch. And for God’s sake, it’s not the Supreme Being.”

Wallace then asked Huckabee if he would have defied the high court’s desegregation ruling in Brown v. Board of Education like former Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus did in 1957. Huckabee said that because then-President Eisenhower and Congress agreed with the ruling desegregation was okay.

Huckabee went on to ponder what would happen if the Supreme Court ruled on who the next president would be:

“We would say, ‘Well, they can’t do that.’ Why can’t they do it? They can’t do it because it’s not in the law. We are sworn to uphold the Constitution and the law. And it has to be consistent and agreed upon with three branches of government. One can’t overrule the other two.”

Of course, Huckabee seems to forget that the Supreme Court guaranteed that George W. Bush would become president after their ruling in Bush v. Gore in 2000 stopped a vote recount in Florida that could have resulted in a Gore presidency.

But Huckabee also forgets that the job of the Supreme Court is to decide if laws on the books are constitutional or not. Therefore, if the court rules that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional, that makes same-sex marriage legal in the United States. Furthermore, not only does President Obama agree that same-sex marriage should be legal, but a clear majority of Americans do as well. The only people who don’t agree are conservative “Christians” who gerrymandered their way into controlling Congress, and they are only basing their disagreement on cherry-picked Bible verses instead of the Constitution.

Perhaps a better question Wallace should have asked Huckabee is whether or not he disagrees with interracial couples being able to legally get married. Because that’s the best comparison to make with same-sex marriage. That redefining of marriage occurred in 1967 when the Supreme Court struck down anti-interracial marriage laws. And just like same-sex marriage bans, those laws were made to discriminate against people and they were struck down because they violated the only law that matters. The Constitution of the United States. Not the Bible.
