John Kasich on LGBT Issues

Kasich believes in traditional marriage but is accepting and supportive of same sex marriage

MEGYN KELLY: Governor Kasich if you had a son or daughter who was gay or lesbian how would you explain to them your opposition to same sex marriage?

JOHN KASICH: Well look, I’m an old fashioned person here and I happen to believe in traditional marriage but I’ve also said the court has ruled and I’ve said we’ll accept it. And guess what? I just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay. Because somebody doesn’t think the way I do doesn’t mean that I can’t care about them or can’t love them. So if one of my daughters happened to be that of course I would love them and I would accept them because you know what? That’s what we’re taught when we have strong faith. So issues like that are planted to divide us. I think the simple fact of the matter is and this is where I would agree with Jeb and I’ve been saying it all along. We need to give everybody a chance, treat everybody with respect and let them share in this great American dream that we have Megyn. So look I’m going to love my daughters I’m going to love them no matter what they do. Because you know what? God gives me unconditional love, I’m going to give it to my family and my friends and the people around me.
