Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) said on Wednesday that gay-rights activists wouldn’t be satisfied until there are no more churches or Christians in America.

“It won’t stop until there are no more churches, until there are no more people who are spreading the Gospel,” Huckabee said on a right-wing radio program while discussing the backlash against anti-gay religious-freedom legislation in Arkansas and Indiana.

“I’m talking now about the unabridged, unapologetic Gospel that is really God’s truth,” he said.

Huckabee made the remarks during an appearance on the conservative Family Research Council radio program “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins.”

Earlier in the program, he accused critics of the legislation of engaging in “true discrimination” and seizing on a “manufactured” crisis.
