John Kasich said Sunday that people who favor laws allowing businesses not to serve gay couples need to “calm down” and “get over” their opposition to lifestyles that differ from their own.
“What I’d like to say is, just relax,” Kasich said on CNN. “If you don’t like what somebody’s doing, pray for them, and if you feel as though somebody is doing something wrong against you, can you just for a second get over it? You know?”
Kasich’s comments were a reply to a question about his harsh reaction to Mississippi’s new law that allows companies not to serve gay couples. Last week, Kasich asked “What the hell are we doing in this country?” in reaction to that law.
