Gov. Huckabee at Marriage March: ‘We will not bow our knees to Nebuchadnezzar!’

Is the American majority’s will to defend natural marriage against the rainbow of perverse counterfeits dead? Has America become a Judiciocracy ruled by a bevy of black-robed autocrats?

Not if you ask the thousands who marched on Washington Thursday in this year’s “March for Marriage” rally. Not if you ask potential 2016 presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

They took on the counter-constitutional idea of judicial supremacy. They defended true marriage.

The Politico reports:

[Mike] Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and the March for Marriage rally’s final speaker, didn’t dance around his feelings about what he viewed as gross judicial overstep [imposing same-sex “marriage” via judicial fiat].

“Judicial supremacy is a curse upon this great Republic,” he told the crowd at the rally, organized in part by the National Organization for Marriage, calling the Supreme Court rulings the “greatest heresy of our time.”

 He went on to argue that the president and Congress were not required to redefine what he deemed natural laws — including marriage — no matter what rulings “nine people in robes” might hand down from the bench.

“The government doesn’t give us our rights,” he said. “The government only has the responsibility to protect the rights God gave us.”

Huckabee also criticized President Barack Obama’s changed stance on gay marriage.

“I agreed with Barack Obama in August 2008,” he said, citing Obama’s “God is in the mix” justification for being unable to support gay marriage at the time. “It’s what you say now I take issue with.”

Former Pennsylvania senator and 2012 presidential candidate Rick Santorum focused on the critical importance of the institution of legitimate marriage:

“Marriage is not just a romantic relationship between two people,” he said. One tenet of marriage, he said, is having and raising children.

Santorum used his speech as a call to action, laying part of the blame for the current social climate at the feet of the [pro-marriage] movement’s failure to define marriage in the face of change.

“We can’t blame those who want to move same-sex marriage,” Santorum said. “We are the ones to blame.”

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), like Huckabee, blasted the idea that “unelected judges” could define marriage. Huelskamp is known for introducing a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.

“We know the truth will win in the end,” Huelskamp said. “It’s what stands between us and the victory at the end.”

He ended his remarks by calling upon the men in the crowd to recommit themselves to their wives and children.

Other speakers included federal and state legislators and candidates, religious leaders and representatives from organizations like The Heritage Foundation. The speakers didn’t ignore the political implications of the number of anti-same-sex marriage Hispanic groups.

“I’m seeing a whole lot of minorities stand up for marriage,” Tamara Scott of The Family Leader said, warning political parties to pay attention.

Just after 1 p.m., the marchers made their way to the Supreme Court. …

Here’s what marriage is: The God-ordained, lifelong, covenantal union between man and wife, designed to provide men, women and children optimal stability and overall well-being. Marriage is that biologically, spiritually and morally centered institution calculated to ensure responsible procreation and perpetuate the human race. Marriage – real marriage – represents the fundamental cornerstone of any healthy society (any society that hopes to survive, at least).

Here’s what marriage is not: Anything else.

In short, marriage is what it is.

It was refreshing to see these transcendent truths hammered home in our Nation’s capital Thursday. This was a clarion call.

America, let’s answer it.
