Justin Haskins on Mike Huckabee, Social Conservatism, and Hypocrisy in the GOP

Mike HuckabeeLess
than a week after former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee threatened to
leave the Republican Party over its allegedly soft approach to
dealing with gay marriage, Huckabee called out Republicans again
over the weekend on his Fox News Channel show Huckabee,
asserting that many in the GOP need to “grow a spine” by defending
the traditional definition of marriage.

Huckabee is right that many in the Republican Party, especially
younger members, no longer believe that the government should be
enacting laws that define marriage as a union between one man and
one woman only. What Huckabee and many other social conservatives
like him do not understand, writes Justin Haskins, is that the
reason a growing number of conservatives are rejecting the typical
social conservative agenda has little to do with political
correctness or fear that society may reject them. It’s not about
politics; it’s all about liberty.
