Noting that President Barack Obama said years ago that he opposed gay marriage because of his Christian beliefs, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee openly questioned those beliefs Friday because the president had since changed his position.
Huckabee spoke with Fox New’s Laura Ingraham about his own comments regarding same-sex nuptials. He had told an Iowa audience Tuesday that his opposition was “on the right side of the Bible.” On Friday, he argued that it was the same stance that Obama had taken in 2008.
“He said it was because of his Christian convictions. Does he have them or does he not?” Huckabee told Ingraham. “If one has them, they don’t change depending on what the culture does. You don’t take an opinion poll to come up with a new point of view.”
He laid out three possible scenarios to explain the president’s change of heart: “Were you lying then or are you lying now or did the Bible get re-written?”
