Jeb Bush Calls for Religious Protection After Supreme Court Decision on Same-Sex Marriage
Former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., called for greater protection of religious freedom after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down same-sex marriage bans on Friday. Bush is running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
“Guided by my faith, I believe in traditional marriage,” Bush said after the decision. “I believe the Supreme Court should have allowed the states to make this decision. I also believe that we should love our neighbor and respect others, including those making lifetime commitments. In a country as diverse as ours, good people who have opposing views should be able to live side by side. It is now crucial that as a country we protect religious freedom and the right of conscience and also not discriminate."
