Jeb Bush on LGBT Issues

As the Supreme Court was preparing to issue its decision on the issue, Bush stated his belief that a traditional heterosexual family is best for the raising of children, and denied that there is any right to gay marriage to be found in the Constitution.

DAVID BRODY: “Conservative Christians are real concerned about the culture nowadays, especially in the marriage issue. And I'm wondering, that they want a candidate eventually who's going to fight on this issue. Are you their guy on this issue? Because they're concerned about the marriage issue.”

JEB BUSH: “Well, I'm concerned about it as well. I think traditional marriage is a sacrament. It's talking about being informed by one's faith. It's at the core of the Catholic faith, and to imagine how we're going to succeed in our country unless we have committed family life, a child-centered family system, is hard to imagine. So, irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling – 'cause, they're gonna decide whatever they decide, and I don't know what they're gonna do – we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage. It has to be, if we wanna create a 'right to rise' society where people, particularly children born in poverty, if we want to have them have a chance – which should be a core American value – we have to restore committed loving family life with a mom and a dad loving their children with their heart and soul.”

BRODY: “On that Supreme Court issue, and I've asked Marco Rubio and some other folks this, do you believe there should be a constitutional right to same-sex marriage? Because that's the argument in front of the Supreme Court.”

BUSH: “I don't, but I'm not a lawyer, and clearly this has been accelerated at a warp pace. What's interesting is that four years ago, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton had the same view that I just expressed to you. You know, it's thousands of years of culture and history is just being changed at warp speed. It's hard to fathom why it is this way.”
