Mike Huckabee recently defended his position on gay marriage by saying it’s not homophobia to be on “the right side of the Bible.” Huckabee explained those remarks on The O’Reilly Factor Friday night, telling Laura Ingraham that his position is no different from what President Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton professed to believe in 2008.
Huckabee called out Obama specifically for saying in 2008 he supported traditional marriage because of his Christian convictions. Huckabee said that either Obama lied then or is lying now, and wondered of those convictions, “Does he have them or does he not?”
Huckabee also addressed the need for the GOP to emphasize the economy over social issues, arguing that “politics is like opening a Baskin-Robbins store” with flavors that appeal to everyone. He made the case that Mitt Romney would have won in 2012 had more evangelical voters shown up to the polls and been reassured that Romney stood for what they believe in.
