“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,” Jeb Bush said. “Irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling, because they're going to decide whatever they decide, and I don’t know what they're going to do, we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage.”
Jeb Bush knows the way he would rule on same-sex marriage if he were a Supreme Court justice.Interviewed Sunday by the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody, Bush was asked whether he believed that gay marriage was a right protected by the U.S. constitution. “I don’t, but I’m not a lawyer, and clearly this has been accelerated at a warp pace,” he said.
