Kasich on Religious Freedom Laws: ‘What the Hell Are We Doing?’

Ohio Gov. John Kasich says the rights of people who want to avoid participating in same-sex weddings should be respected but he believes Mississippi’s recently passed law allowing private businesses and public employees to deny rights to gay people goes overboard….

…While he still believes marriage is between a man and a woman, Kasich said people should try to be understanding of each other.

“What are we going to do, write a law?” he said. “I read about this thing they did in Mississippi where apparently you can deny somebody service because they’re gay. What the hell are we doing in this country?”
