Kasich: ‘Can’t We All Just Get Along?’

He doesn’t understand the hubbub over defending religious liberty.

John Kasich doesn’t understand the hubbub over the recent state laws defending religious liberty in the wake of the Supreme Court legalizing same-sex marriage. The GOP presidential candidate said he would not have signed a religious freedom bill like the ones that recently appeared on the desks of the governors of Georgia and Mississippi. Funny, the Ohio governor has used the Bible plenty of times to justify the expansion of government, yet he won’t consider signing a bill that protects religious conscience when the will of that big government infringes someone’s religious liberty.

“In our state,” Kasich said, “we’re not facing this, so everybody needs to take a deep breath, respect one another, and the minute we start trying to write laws, things become more polarized, things — they become more complicated. … Why do we have to write a law every time we turn around in this country? Can we figure out just how to get along a little bit better and respect one another? … Everybody, chill out. Get over it if you have a disagreement with somebody.”

It’s a quaint sentiment, and we completely agree that “there oughta be a law” isn’t always the best approach. However, government is needed when people are not friends. And the Rainbow Mafia certainly isn’t content to “chill out.” They want bakers, photographers, and everyone else to walk in lockstep with their “tolerant” philosophy, and they have used the courts to strip away religious liberty. Kasich doesn’t need to lecture his own side; he needs to fight the Left.
