At Thursday's GOP debate, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said that laws protecting opponents of gay marriage may be necessary.

Moderator Bret Baier reminded Kasich that at the last debate he said that businesses should not discriminate against gay couples.

“Governor, some faith leaders got nervous about that answer. Do gay marriage dissenters have rights?” Baier asked.

“Here's what I'd like to see happen,” Kasich answered. “The Supreme Court ruled. I don't agree with the ruling. I'm in favor of marriage between, you know, traditional marriage, a man and a woman. What I hope was going to happen after the Supreme Court ruling is things would settle down.”

“If you go to a photographer to take pictures at your wedding and he says I'd rather not do it, find another photographer. Don't sue them in court. You know, the problem is in our country we need to respect each other and be a little bit more tolerant for one another.”

“Can't we have common sense in America? That's the way it used to be. … At the end of the day, if somebody is being pressured to participate in something that is against their deeply-held religious beliefs, then we're going to have to think about dealing with a law,” he added.
