(TRUNEWS) Ohio Governor and presidential candidate John Kasich is calling for Christian business owners to cater to homosexuals.
During Thursday’s debate in Houston, Kasich claimed Christian organizations must provide services because “the court has ruled”. But, he said he did feel churches and religious institutions should not be forced to offer same-sex marriage ceremonies, according to LifesiteNews.
Kasich drew the analogy that if a business does not want to service gays today, they will refuse divorced people next.
“I mean if you’re in the business of commerce, conduct commerce. That’s my view,” he continued. “If you don’t agree with their lifestyle, say a prayer for them when they leave and hope they change their behavior.”
In contrast, Donald Trump claimed he would make the issue a “litmus test” for all judicial nominees.
During Kasich’s speech announcing his run for the White House last summer, he talked about attending the wedding of a gay friend.
The contender finished in second place in the New Hampshire Primary but came in almost last in other primaries and caucuses.
