Huckabee on the IRS and Religious Liberty

"Religious liberty is under attack by an unconstitutional, out-of-control Supreme Court. The next battle we face: The IRS attack on churches.

I refuse to sit silently as liberal activists use the power of the IRS and the tax code to intimidate, discriminate, and abuse churches that refuse to surrender on same-sex marriage. Activists are already demanding that churches, religious schools, and faith-based institutions that refuse to change their doctrines on marriage should be forced to pay taxes as a penalty. This is not a conspiracy, it's a real threat. In Chief Justice John Roberts’ dissent, he acknowledged that tax exemptions of some religious institutions could be jeopardized. Even President Obama's Solicitor General admitted this during oral Supreme Court arguments. Worse still, Hillary Clinton's top advisor refused to answer when she was asked whether churches should punished and lose their tax exempt status over traditional marriage.
While some cowardly politicians will wave the white flag and surrender to the false god of judicial supremacy, I refuse to light a match to our Constitution. For the sake of our children and grandchildren, we must stand our ground against judicial tyranny."
