Huckabee: President Should Obey ‘Supreme Being’ More Than Supreme Court

Posted by | May 24, 2015 12:30 | Filed under: News Behaving Badly Politics Religion

It sounds like someone wants a theocracy in the United States.

…Huckabee insisted on Sunday that the president of the United States would not have to follow a ruling that struck down bans on same-sex marriage because the Supreme Court was not the “Supreme Being.”

“You seemed to indicate that as president, you wouldn’t necessarily obey court rulings, even the Supreme Court,” Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out during an interview on Sunday. “We have operated under the principle of judicial review since the Marbury v. Madison case in 1803.”

…According to the GOP candidate, the United States would be operating under “judicial supremacy” instead of judicial review if bans on same-sex marriage were to be struck down.

“Presidents have understood that the Supreme Court cannot make a law, they cannot make it, the legislature has to make it, the executive branch has to sign it and enforce it,” Huckabee said. “And the notion that the Supreme Court comes up with the ruling and that automatically subjects the two other branches to following it defies everything there is about the three equal branches of government.”

“The Supreme Court is not the supreme branch,” he added. “And for God’s sake, it’s not the Supreme Being.”

    Sounds to me like the Huckster is attempting to get ‘God’s people’ to help him get God made a Kriminal by US Law?

    it’s almost as if he wants his ‘God’ to remain in hiding?

    Thata boy
    Give Mr Huckabee enough press and he won’t disappoint. Theocracy is what the United States needs, not democracy. He, Mr Huckabee, hates us because of our freedom.

    I do not believe that Huckabee really wants to be president..
    What he really would like is to be the supreme leader, (Ayatollah) who rules by edict and has the final say based on his personal religious interpretations.

      Of course Hucksterbee knows he has a snowball’s chance at becoming President. NONE of the current GOP contenders think they can win. This is all just a money racket they are doing to grab donations and get publicity.

    What does Hucksterbee’s “supreme being” say about destroying evidence to thwart an investigation of child molestation?
