Mike Huckabee Warns Against The GOP Changing Their Stance On Same-Sex Marriage

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee spoke with Newsmax TV about a report that Republicans may make their party platform more tolerant of same-sex marriage.

Huckabee said, "If the party makes a substantial change on issues like life or marriage, it would be disastrous because whatever they think they gain, they're wrong." While speaking Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" Huckabee said, "What they will lose is an absolute--I think a flood tide of people will just give up on the GOP and say they're not different than the Democrats."

Politico had recently reported that Republican financiers are interested in changing the GOP's approach to gay marriage, and want to debut that platform at the upcoming GOP national convention.

Huckabee said, "What is unfortunate is the Human Rights Council has been very, very effective in their lobbying to make it that if you're trying to protect a religious liberty of people so that they have the ability to follow their conscience as it relates to biblical marriage or attitude toward what that means, then they're haters, they're homophobic. It's nothing of the kind. It just means that they hold to a tradition that is the only tradition of 5,000 years of human history. The idea of same-sex marriage is really, really new and it's not something that has had widespread acceptance and official approval in any government entity until the last few years."

Huckabee added, "What they would say is if you want me to participate in a ceremony that violates my conscience and my convictions, then all I ask is respect me, accommodate me and that's not what's happening. People are being criminalized because they refuse to accept that they just don't agree with."
