Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush restated his support of traditional marriage in response to the Supreme Court opening the door to same-sex marriage across the country.

The GOP presidential candidate said that the court should have left the decision up to the states.

“I also believe that we should love our neighbor and respect others, including those making lifetime commitments,” he said. “In a country as diverse as ours, good people who have opposing views should be able to live side by side.  It is now crucial that as a country we protect religious freedom and the right of conscience and also not discriminate.”
