From Myriam Marquez's Miami Herald report on former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his recent PBS interview with Charlie Rose.
On same-sex marriage, Bush didn’t hide from his conservative belief that “traditional marriage is what should be sanctioned,” but “not at the expense of discriminating other forms of family structure.”
So he didn’t turn all “Church Lady” on us, maintaining that there should be a way to acknowledge gay unions.
“I don’t think people need to be discriminated against because they don’t share my belief on this, and if people love their children with all their heart and soul and that’s what they do and that’s how they organize their life that should be held up as examples for others to follow because we need it. We desperately need it and that can take all sorts of forms, it doesn’t have to take the one that I think should be sanctioned under the law.”
