Former Arkansas Governor and current Fox News host Mike Huckabee used Martin Luther King Jr. to attack gay marriage at the 2014 March for Marriage rally today in Washington D.C.
Huckabee went on a rant against state judges who have legalized gay marriage and urged people not to accept those lawful rulings, noted RawStory.com (video below).
Huckabee quoted part of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Jr.'s famous Letters from a Birmingham Jail, which were written about fighting segregation, not gay marriage.
“I wish [Dr. King] were here today to say in the people in the building this one, Mr. Supreme Court justices, Madam Supreme Court justices, your role is only to interpret the law, to make sure that it somehow meshes with the Constitution, not that it messes with the Constitution!” said Huckabee.
However, Dr. King's widow Coretta Scott King said that her late husband would support gay rights, reported DemocraticUnderground.com.
Ironically, while Huckabee was bashing gay marriage, the largest membership of the Presbyterian denomination voted today to allow gay marriage in churches.
According to ReligionNews.com, the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted 76-24 percent to allow pastors to decide whether or not to officiate gay marriages in their churches in accordance with state laws.
RightWingWatch.org reports that Huckabee will next be speaking at some conservative pastor rallies to inform them what a Christian worldview is and how to tell their congregations who to vote for in November.
