George Soros-funded John Kasich slams religious liberty laws: ‘Chill out, get over it’

kasich-religiouslibertyMore and more, John Kasich, the George Soros-funded governor of Ohio who’s determined to stay in the GOP race despite not standing a snowball’s chance of winning, sounds more like a liberal Democrat.  On Sunday, he criticized religious liberty laws, telling Christians to “chill out” and “get over it.”

“We are not having this issue in our state about this whole religious liberty,” he said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“I believe that religious institutions ought to be protected and be able to be in a position of where they can live out their deeply held religious purposes. But when you get beyond that it gets to be a tricky issue. And tricky is not the right word, but it can become a contentious issue. But in our state we’re not facing this.

“Everybody needs to take a deep breath, respect one another and with the minute we start trying to write laws, things become more polarized, more complicated, obviously I don’t want to force people to violate their deeply held religious convictions, we have to see what that is all about. I wouldn’t have signed that law from everything I know; I haven’t studied it. But Nathan Deal, the governor of Georgia, vetoed another one. You just got to see what the laws are and what the proposals are.

“Why do we have to write a law every time we turn around in this country? Can’t we figure out just how to get along a little bit better and respect one another? That’s where I think we ought to be. Everybody, chill out, get over it if you have a disagreement with somebody. That’s where I am right now, John. Unless something that pops up I’m not inclined to sign anything.”

Note to Kasich: It’s called moral leadership.  Maybe you should Google it someday.
