Once touted as the first gay-friendly Republican presidential nominee, Jeb Bush seems to have fallen in line with his established far-right anti-gay Republican party brethren. In a New York Times article called “Jeb Bush Takes Tougher Stance Against Same-Sex Marriage,” the potential nominee feels that not only gays and lesbians shouldn’t be legally married, but that same-sex couples can’t be loving or provide a good household to children.  “I don’t, but I’m not a lawyer, and clearly this has been accelerated at a warp pace,” Bush said. “To imagine how we’re going to succeed in our country unless we have committed family life, a child-centered family system, is hard to imagine,” he continued. “Irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling, because they’re going to decide whatever they decide, and I don’t know what they’re going to do, we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage.”

He then continues by drawing parallels between poverty, family life, and the lack of upward mobility in America. “If we want to create a right-to-rise society, where people, particularly children born in poverty, if we want to have them have a chance we should be—a core American value…we have to restore committed, loving family life with a mom and a dad loving their children with their heart and soul.”
