“I think traditional marriage is a sacrament. To imagine how we are going to succeed in our country unless we have committed family life, committed child-centered family system is hard to imagine. So, irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling because they are going to decide whatever they decide, I don’t know what they are going to do, we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage. Thousands of years of culture and history are being changed at warp speed. It’s hard to fathom why it is this way.” – Jeb Bush, speaking yesterday to Christian broadcaster CBN.
Later in the same interview Bush backed the right of businesses to turn away LGBT customers: “A big country – a tolerant country – ought to be able to figure out the difference between discriminating someone because of their sexual orientation and not forcing someone to participate in a wedding that they find goes against their moral beliefs. We should be able to figure this out. This should not be that complicated. But gosh. it is right now.”
