Huckabee: Phil Robertson Holds "Same Position" On Gay Marriage As Obama Did In 2008


WALLACE: Let me switch subjects on you. Dramatically, the "Duck Dynasty" controversy, when that broke, you announced that you were setting up your own Facebook page, we have it on the screen. "I Stand with Phil", with a goal of getting 1 million people to signup.

Briefly, why is this such a big deal for you?

HUCKABEE: Well, I think it has come to a point in our culture where political correctness has made it so that if you want to take a point of view that is traditional, that holds to steadfast, old fashioned biblical Christian values, which are also, by the way, values of traditional Judaism, and even Islam, that somehow you're supposed to just shut up and keep that to yourself. But if you want to advocate for same sex marriage, we're supposed to be very tolerant.

I'm tolerant of people who have a position on that issue that is contrary to mine. But I'm not tolerant of the intolerance.

And so, what we've seen is that there is a new level of bullying of the part of these militant activist groups who if anyone says something that holds to the same position that Barack Obama held in 2008 when he at the Saddleback Church with John McCain, made it very clear that he opposed same sex marriage, and he said he did so he was a Christian and because of his biblical views.

Well, if that position was OK in 2008, how it isn't OK in 2013 or 2014?
