Bush: Accomodation Needed for Those Officials Acting on Faith

“I think there needs to be accommodation for someone acting on their faith,” Jeb Bush says at CNN’s Republican presidential debate, responding to question on Ky. county clerk’s Kim Davis refusal to sign marriage certificates for gay couples.

  • Says issue should be solved at local level
    • “She is sworn to uphold the law,” if she can’t in good conscience sign certificates, there should be someone in her office who can, he says
