Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday freedom of faith was a choice between the laws of man and the laws of God.
“From the standpoint of religious freedom, you might say it’s a choice between the Little Sisters and Big Brother,” Bush said at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.
“I’m going with the Little Sisters,” he added, throwing in his support for the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic religious institution for women which has clashed with the government over healthcare requirements in the past.
Bush, a likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate, spoke as Liberty University’s commencement speaker. He charged Saturday that government sought to control matters of the spirit much like they did matters on Earth.
“Somebody here is being small-minded and intolerant,” Bush said of the battle between church and state.
“It sure isn’t the nuns, ministers and preachers who are practicing their faith,” he added.
