John Kasich Doesn't Need the Bible to Understand Common Sense

Presidential hopeful John Kasich says he doesn't need a Bible to "figure out what I think." In a Sunday interview with CNN's Dana Bash, Kasich said his push on improving issues such as mental health was due to his "heart for people." Kasich said "I care about them. I'm not saying other people don't, but it touches me specially." He then talked about being influenced by your faith by saying "I think it relates to (issues) like early childhood education for kids, people who are in prison, giving them a chance to get their lives back if they want to earn their way there. Conservatism is giving everybody a chance to be able to be successful. That's the way (Ronald) Reagan was. I mean, that's common sense."

In addition, Kasich is against abortion except for cases of rape, incest and to save a mother's life. "I think (abortion) is an important issue, but I think there's many other issues that are really critical. Early childhood. Infant mortality. The environment. Education. I think we focus too much on just one issue, and now that the issue of gay marriage is kind of off the table, we're kind of down to one social issue." Kasich also went after Obama for pulling combat troops out of Iraq in 2011. "I think ISIS has risen, frankly, because there's been nobody over there to stop them. I think that all the religions of the world ought to stand up and say, 'You blow up innocent men, women and children and you think you're going to paradise? There's something wrong with you. You're nuts. If we catch you, we're going to throw you into prison, maybe for the rest of your life.'"
