Huckabee Support Group: Married Gay Couples Die Younger

In a brief filed with the Supreme Court in April, Mike Huckabee Policy Solutions wrote, “Empirical evidence demonstrates that homosexual behavior — especially chronic and habitual practice — is likewise associated with early mortality.” The group states that its goal is to “support the national policy aims of Mike Huckabee.” The group used a 2013 Danish study that showed that mortality rates for married lesbians has recently begun to rise and that they were at a higher risk of suicide and death. The Huckabee support group also researched obituaries from “homosexual publications” to prove that married gay people died at a younger age, on average, than single gay people. The group also wrote “Mike Huckabee policy solutions and Family Research Initiative beseech this court to show true compassion and kindness for the benefit of millions of American young people who, as a function of behavioral and lifestyle choices encouraged by unwise or uncaring public policy decrees, would die early.”

The brief was sent with a case that the Supreme Court heard last month where they considered the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee. The group wrote, "that deference to the States in the regulation of lawful marriage, as well as federalist restraint and humility by this Court, would represent an act of love. Tough love, perhaps, but love nonetheless."

Huckabee's campaign did not respond to requests for comments, but Huckabee has said "The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being. It cannot overturn the laws of nature or of nature's God."
