What You Need To Know About John Kasich's View On Same-Sex Marriage And Religious Liberties

As a surprise to many, John Kasich is doing quite well so far in the Republican presidential race.  He is running as a conservative, but some of his views may not be as conservative as conservatives would like.

In a recent interview, Governor Kasich said that he would support clergy not participating in same-sex weddings but not business owners, reports Life Site News.  "I mean, if you're in the business of commerce, conduct commerce. That's my view. If you don't agree with their lifestyle, say a prayer for them when they leave and hope they change their behavior," Kasich said.

Kasich explained the mentality could become that today I'm "not going to sell to somebody who's gay, and tomorrow maybe I won't sell to somebody who's divorced." But he does, however support religious institutions maintaining their conscience, saying they "are in inviolate in my mind, and I would fight for those religious institutions."

But fighting against the recently-ruled upon same-sex marriage is out of the question.  "In regard to same-sex marriage, I don't favor it. I've always favored traditional marriage, but, look, the court has ruled and I've moved on," he said during a recent debate.

He also appealed to a gay voter questioning him by saying: "Guess what? I just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay." When told that wasn't enough, he reiterated that he would not try to change the same-sex marriage law.
