Gov. Mike Huckabee yesterday urged South Carolina to pass a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage.
Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, said some have argued the U.S. Constitution is a sacred document that shouldn’t be changed.
But following that logic would, among other things, leave women without the right to vote, he said. The Constitution, “precious as it is, was written to be changed. The holy Bible, on the other hand, is a divine document. It was not written to be changed by us.”
Huckabee was speaking at a political fundraiser in Columbia. He will be in South Carolina through the weekend at a National Governors Association meeting in Charleston.
