Huckabee, Prop 8, and the Federal Marriage Amendment

Two weeks have passed since yet another activist judge has tried to not only re-define marriage, but also override a state Constitutional amendment and the will of the people.  There is now a stay on that ruling (that there is a Federal Constitutional right to gay marriage) until the appeal.

With all of this going on the GOP is not so surprisingly silent on an issue that is in their platform…marriage between one man and one woman.  Governor Huckabee has always been and always will be the Republican with conviction on this issue and one of the few who call for a Federal Marriage Amendment to stop the madness of the courts on this issue.

From Huck PAC after the initial Prop 8 ruling:

Statement On Prop 8 Ruling

by Mike Huckabee

Without exception – regardless of political ideology, judges should never legislate from the bench. Marriage has always been defined as being between one man and one woman. In fact, state after state has voted to uphold the definition of marriage whenever the question has been placed on the ballot – but for some reason activist judges keep trying to redefine it.

Today’s ruling tramples on the will of the people and sadly, it seems judicial activists are determined to advance their personal radical agenda. That’s why I believe it’s time for a federal constitutional amendment that defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman. That is the only action that will truly protect marriage.
