So yeah, we knew we weren’t going to vote for him before, but did this just seal the deal?

Thanks to The Brody File, we hear what JEB Bush has to say about same-sex marriage, but he does state that his beliefs are / were the same as Obama and Hillary Clinton.  Watch the video and read the transcript for clarity.  Will John Ellis Bush (his real name) gain your vote with these two video recaps?

 

 

David Brody: Conservative Christians are real concerned about the culture nowadays, especially on the marriage issue. They want a candidate that is going to fight on this issue. Are you their guy because they are 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 formed by one’s faith, it’s at the core of the catholic faith and to imagine how we are going to succeed in our country unless we have committed family life, committed child-centered family system is hard to imagine. So, irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling because they are going to decide whatever they decide, I don’t know what they are going to do, we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage.”

Jeb Bush: “We have to restore committed, loving family life with a mom and dad loving their children with their heart and soul.”

David Brody: Do you believe there should be a constitutional right to same-sex marriage because that’s the argument in front of the Supreme Court?

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

So he fully admits that his beliefs are years behind the Democrats.  Thanks for telling use you are behind the times.  But what I would like to know is what is his beliefs on single parent families?  Are they atrocities?  Would JEB like to see children removed from those families and put in 2 parent homes?  JEB, go ahead and support families with a mother and a father. You don't have to hate what is different while supporting your ideal. Mother / Father families are awesome, but so are other forms of a family unit. I feel like the Bush family is trying to put us all in a sad version of The Truman Show. 

And what does JEB have to say about the right to serve and not serve customers that may believe in different moral and religious values?

 

 

David Brody: “This is more about the vendor issue as it relates to do they want to provide a service for same-sex weddings. Are you ok if they don’t provide those types of services? Is that ok?”

Jeb Bush: “Yes, absolutely if it’s based on a religious belief.”

Jeb Bush: “A big country, a tolerant country ought to be able to figure out the difference between discriminating someone because of their sexual orientation and not forcing someone to participate in a wedding that they find goes against their moral beliefs. We should be able to figure this out. This should not be that complicated gosh it is right now.”The Brody File

Do you agree with anything JEB has said or did this reaffirm that yet another Bush will not get your vote?

  1. I do not believe Mr. Bush at

    I do not believe Mr. Bush at all and here's why. Governor of Florida, Rick Scott stated he was ready to extend Medicaid for the uninsured people in Florida. Now, he's in office and all of a sudden… reversed gears, states I have decided we will not be expanding Medicaid after all. Politicians will promise you the moon, the stars, whatever you want it's yours but when they take office, what exactly can you do at this point? I was never going to vote for him anyway but no it would not make me vote for him.

  2. Some people may be less

    Some people may be less inclined to vote for him because of these stances, and in  general in takes a great deal to make me vote for a Republican, but he is correct when he states that he holds the same views Hilary Clinton held not that long ago, and very often when candidates "evolve" on political issues, there is campaign one behind it. I may be cynical in what I say, but I am not sure how many of our causes that require legislation have become reality due to "evolution" as much as contributions. The only consolation: middle income gay folks vote too, the same ones who work tirelessly for causes, but politicians evolving and celebrities overjoyed at our weddings, makes me feel meh.

    • “…politicians evolving and

      "…politicians evolving and celebrities overjoyed at our weddings, makes me feel meh."   I believe that some of them are genuinely happy that those who love one another can get married.   In some cases, I believe that it is just another way to keep the spotlight on them for that additional 15 seconds.   Some public figures will take advantage of any opportunity for publicity.

  3. I careless what the stupid

    I careless what the stupid bible, koran, or any stupid religious book says. you want to believe in that…go for it. but you have to learn how to keep your ridiculous dogma to yourself.

     

    • The point was to demonstrate

      The point was to demonstrate in their own words, using their own reference, the reason WHY the stand on Government vs Religious issues is against that "dogma" that you mention.   If you want to argue against something, you have to understand it, and put the facts on the table.

  4. There are a few things about

     

    There are a few things about the Biblical position of Republican politicians and their supporters that I would like to challenge:  

    Jesus had very specific expectations when it came to politics and religion.   He did not come here to have an earthly kingdom.  (John 18:36)  He had no intention of getting involved in politics or taking over the government.   If He wanted to, He would have.  He did not want anything that belonged to the government so far as money or taxes are concerned. (Mark 12:17)  He did not CARE what the government did with the money that was collected as taxes because His kingdom is not of this world, it is of the next world.    If He did care, then he would not have allowed the Christians to pay taxes to an Emperor who would only build pagan temples, bath houses, and subsidize the slaughter in the Colosseum that occurred during this time frame.  

    The Bible even goes so far as to state that the rich will probably not inherit the kingdom of Heaven.  (Matthew 19:24)   So much for the millionaires in Congress.    

    Those who would say that their Christianity allows them to show disrespect and deny service to those who are not of their faith, or present as "sinners": let me direct you to 2 Peter Chapter 2 where the lesson for Christians is pretty clear:  

    11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;  (this is an admonishment to Christians, not permission to judge others…)

    12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.   (Present a good example to everyone, including sinners, so that they may be swayed by your example, instead of being alienated by your judgment.)

    13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;

    14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

    15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

    16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

    17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.  

    Pretty clear to me.   In order to teach others, do not alienate them or speak of them in a derisive or judgmental way.   Makes sense, doesn't it?

     

     

     

  5. I’m trying to keep an open

    I'm trying to keep an open mind with him and all of his Republican brethren who are running for President but so far Jeb is not doing a good job he can't even answer a question about his brother   without having to issue a clarifying statement My question to Jeb and others that oppose gay marriage what to do say to those gay couple who wish to marry in order to raise and care for their children just like str8 couples marry to give and protect their children
