Kasich on Same-Sex Marriage: I’m Afraid GOP is Turning Young People Away From God

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Gov. John Kasich (R-OH), a candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, discussed Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis being jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses and said of the Republican Party continuing to fight over same-sex marriage after the Supreme Court ruling could turn people off “to the idea of faith in God.”

Kasich said, “The court has spoken, the court has ruled. I believe in traditional marriage, but the court has ruled. One other big issue here, we have a lot of young people who sit on the fence on a issue like this and they think about their belief in God. And you know, for me, I think we need to talk a lot about the do’s — about humility, about helping our neighbors, about the need to live a life bigger than ourselves. When we see these battles going on, I get a little bit afraid that it turns people off to the idea of faith in God.What it means to be be a Christian. For me it’s given me a solid foundation to deal with the strong winds in life — to be a better person, a better guy. Now, I respect the fact that this lady doesn’t agree but she’s also a government employee, she’s not running a church, I wouldn’t force this on a church. But in terms of her responsibility I think she has to comply. I don’t think —I  don’t like the fact that she’s sitting in a jail, that’s absurd as well. But I think she should follow the law. ”
