Mike Huckabee Says Martin Luther King Jr. Would Equate Gay Marriage With Holocaust

Former Arkansas governor turned political pundit Mike Huckabee on Thursday compared Huckabeestopping gay rights to stopping the march of Naziism across the globe.

During an appearance at the 2014 March for Marriage in Washington, D.C., Huckabee said judges don’t have the right to repeal gay marriage bans.

“We are under an obligation to obey God and the law, and if necessary, to defy an institution that is out of control,” proclaimed the moralizing politician.

Huckabee then began quoting Martin Luther King, Jr.

“One may well ask, ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’” King once wrote. “The answer is found in the fact that there are two types of laws: there are just laws, and there are unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘An unjust law is no law at all.’”

Huckabee continued the quote: “We can never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was ‘illegal.’ It was ‘illegal’ to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany. But I am sure that if I had lived in Germany during that time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers even though it was illegal.”

“I wish I had penned those words,” Huckabee roared. “But they were penned by someone who understood freedom, and understood that there was a time to stand up against law when it has become unjust. Those are the words that were penned in 1954 by Martin Luther King Jr. in his letter from the Birmingham Jail.”

Then he drove home the point that the role of judges is not to uphold unjust laws.

“I wish he were here today to say in the people in the building this one, Mr. Supreme Court justices, Madam Supreme Court justices, your role is only to interpret the law, to make sure that it somehow meshes with the Constitution, not that it messes with the Constitution!” he concluded.
