Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) told “Fox and Friends” Friday morning that he wants to see the bible that changed President Barack Obama’s views on same-sex marriage.
When asked, Huckabee told Fox hosts that he thought Ohio Gov. John Kasich gave a “good, honest answer” at Thursday’s GOP debate on same-sex marriage, but that his “traditional” view of marriage doesn’t waver.
When Kasich asked how he would explain his position on same-sex marriage if one of his children were gay, Kasich said, “God gives me unconditional love. I’m going to give it to my family and my friends and the people around me.”
But Huckabee maintained on Fox Friday that he has a “traditional view of marriage,” and questioned President Barack Obama’s current views on the topic.
Obama was opposed to same-sex marriage when he ran for President in 2008.
“Barack Obama in 2008 claimed that he believed it because, he said as a Christian, it’s a biblical issue and God is in the mix. Now, if he’s changed his mind and it was a biblical view, one of three things happened. He was lying then, lying now, or the bible got rewritten somewhere between 2008 and when he changed his mind in 2012,” Huckabee said on the morning program.
“And he’s the only one that’s got the new version. So, rather than attack people who hold to the biblical view and to the historic view of 6,000 years of human history, I think the bigger question to say to the President is ‘can you show us that new bible that you have because we haven’t seen that one yet?'” Huckabee said.
