Huck uses Vermont decision to renew fight for gay marriage amendment

Mike Huckabee issued a press release this morning, attacking the Vermont legislature's decision to override Gov. Jim Douglas' veto of gay marriage legislation, and affirming the need for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.


The actions of the Vermont Legislature, coming on the heels of the judicial ruling by the Iowa Supreme Court, should make it apparent to each of us that conservative values and conservative principles are under attack as never before. We must take action now.

It is up to each of us who believe in traditional marriage to increase our efforts to protect the foundation of our society. I continue to support a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. It is now an absolute necessity. We must stop the liberal legislatures and activist judges from undermining the moral fabric of our society. Fighting for passage of a constitutional amendment is critical to conservative principles.

Join me in waging the battle for the protection of the family - help rally support for a constitutional amendment.

Especially interesting in light of this.
