Jeb Bush Comes Out In Favor Of Religious Liberty (Right To Discriminate) Bills
Speaking on the steps of the Georgia Statehouse on Thursday, 2016 GOP presidential candidate hopeful Jeb Bush came out in support of anti-LGBT bills like the state’s proposed Religious Freedom Restoration Act – legislation that would allow people to use their religion to discriminate against LGBT individuals.
The Washington Blade reports:
“I don’t know about the law, but religious freedom is a serious issue, and it’s increasingly so, and I think people that act on their conscience shouldn’t be discriminated against, for sure,” Bush said. “There should be protections, and so, as it relates to marriage equality — and that may change, the Supreme Court may change that. That automatically then shifts the focus to people of conscience, and, I don’t know, have their faith make — they want to act on their faith, and may not be able to be employed for example.” […]
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Bush added, “People have a right to do that, just as we need to be respectful for people who are in long-term committed relationships. Sorting that out is important.”
Same shit, different Bush.
