As the Supreme Court readies a decisions regarding same-sex marriage in the United States, politicians are weighing in on the matter. Leave it to Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush to rain on our parade.
At the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference in DC on Friday, George W’s younger brother revealed he’d continue to fight against marriage equality no matter what the highest court in the last says.
“It’s got to be important over the long haul, irrespective of what the courts say,” he declared. “We need to make sure that we protect the right not just of having religious views, but the right of acting on those religious views. Conscience should also be respected for people of faith who want to take a stand for traditional marriage.”
Of course, Bush brought children into the equation as well, saying ” we should recognize the power of a man and a woman loving their children with all their heart and soul as a good thing, as something that is positive and helpful for those children to live a successful life.”
Can’t teach an old dog new tricks, I suppose.
Unlike fellow GOPers Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz, Bush has not yet stated whether or not he’d push for a constitutional amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman. So that actually makes him a moderate Republican.
Let that sink in for a minute.
