On Tuesday night he disputed what he calls the "notion of judicial supremacy", meaning that what the courts rule is what reigns supreme in the law of the land:
One thing I am angry about though … is this notion of judicial supremacy, where if the court makes a decision, I hear governors and even some aspirants to the presidency say, 'Well that's settled, it's the law of the land.' No, it's not the law of the land.
Deliberately or not, Huckabee is nit-picking semantics. No, the Supreme Court does not make laws. It does decide implementation of existing laws, however, and should the Court determine that gay marriage bans are unconstitutional then all state bans are null and void, just as with what happened with Loving v. Virginia and the anti-miscegenation laws. The states do not get to decide whether they abide by that ruling, courtesy of the Supremacy Clause which, incidentally, explicitly states that laws made in pursuance of the Constitution are, in fact, the law of the land.
In an attempt to truly emulate Christ, Huckabee was sure to put himself up on the cross for his beliefs:
I may be lonely, I may be the only one, but I'm going to stand absolutely faithful to the issue of marriage not because it's a politically expedient thing to do because it isn't. I'm going to do it because I believe it's the right position, it's the biblical position, it's the historical position.
