    On Tuesday, he released a three-step plan on how, if he became president, he would defend those who support traditional marriage. The plan includes:

    • Signing religious liberty executive orders. The executive orders would protect businesses, churches, universities and other entities from discrimination or civil or criminal penalties for exercising their religious beliefs in support of traditional marriage, according to the release by Huckabee's campaign.

    • Prosecuting hate crimes against people of faith. The release said that Huckabee, if elected president, would direct the U.S. Attorney General to prosecute as hate crimes groups or individuals who discriminated or attacked individuals, businesses, religious organizations and others for their religious beliefs about marriage.

    • Defending people of faith in the U.S. military. Huckabee would direct the Secretary of Defense to support military chaplains and "not force them to participate in ceremonies they find objectionable on religious grounds," the release said.
