Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said the U.S. Supreme Court crossed a line when it “decided out of thin air” to legalize same-sex marriage, and he vowed to stand by Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who went to jail this month for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

“I thought that everybody here passed ninth-grade civics,” he said in Wednesday night’s GOP debate. “I thought we had three branches of government. They were all equal to each other. We have separation of powers, and we had checks and balances. If the court can just make a decision and we just all surrender to it, we have what Jefferson said was judicial tyranny.”

“You’re telling me that we cannot make an accommodation for an elected Democrat county clerk from Rowan County, Kentucky?” Huckabee asked. “What else is it other than the criminalization of her faith and the exaltation of the faith of everyone else who might be a Fort Hood shooter or a detainee at GITMO.”

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush pointed out that Davis was sworn to uphold the law as a county clerk, so if she can’t do that, she might need to find another job.

“You can’t just say, ‘Well, the gays can’t get married now,'” Bush said. “If she, based on her conscience, can’t sign that marriage license, then there should be someone in her office to be able to do it.

Great advice Dipshit Huckabee, first things first there dip boy, Are you going to do the time? Are you volunteering to go to jail; for her? People like huckleberry are what has put in a position she cannot get out of now. If she has a moral objection she should simply resign. But that overpaid job ($80,000) is too hard to give up.

watcha gotta say?
