Mike Huckabee Claims The 'Redefinition Of Love' Threatens Marriage

Yeah, that's the real threat to marriage... two people being in love with each other.

Former Arkansas governor and 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee continues to twist himself in knots trying to pretend that allowing gay people to get married is somehow a threat to the institution of marriage itself.

Mike Huckabee: 'Redefinition of love' threatens marriage:

Mike Huckabee says marriage is "in trouble today" because of the "redefinition of love" -- no matter who's in the relationship.

And, the former Arkansas governor said Sunday, that's a problem "in every definition of marriage -- be it heterosexual or homosexual or polygamy or wherever the marriage redefinition ends up taking us over the course of the next few years."

In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," Huckabee complained that marriage is under assault from people who don't understand the commitment it entails.

Asked whether same-sex marriage or high divorce rates are a bigger threat to the institution, Huckabee responded that the question was like asking which wing of an airplane is more important.

"Regardless, heterosexual marriage is largely in trouble today because people see it as a selfish means of pleasing self, rather than a committed relationship in which the focus is on meeting the needs of the partner," he said. "That sense of selfishness and the redefinition of love as to something that is purely sentimental and emotional, has been destructive."

Yeah, that's the real threat to marriage... two people being in love with each other.

Tapper also let him get away with pretending our current Supreme Court isn't packed full of conservatives. Huckabee got zero push back when claiming that there would be "very different kind of people" appointed to the court if he were elected president.
