Ohio Governor John Kasich on Friday refused to elaborate on why he's okay with attending the same-sex wedding of a friend while opposing marriage equality.

In an interview last month with CNN, Kasich, a possible candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, said that he was planning to attend the wedding of a gay couple.

On Friday, Kasich described being asked if he would attend the same-sex wedding of someone he loved as a “wedge question” that he had “not thought about enough.”

“I am for marriage defined between a man and a woman,” Kasich said during a lunch sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.

“If the Supreme Court changes that, those changes have to be respected. And I have a number of friends who are gay, OK? I like them. They know how I feel about this. I'm fine. They want me to go? I care about them, I'll go. I don't usually go to weddings of people that I don't know, OK? I don't go to ‘em. But if somebody that I like is getting married in the traditional sense or in the non-traditional sense, I'm not hung up about it and I'll be celebrating with them at that point.”

When pressed to further explain his reasoning, Kasich refused.

“We can beat this horse,” he said, “but my position has been clear forever.”
