At Christian University, Jeb Bush seeks support from evangelicals

Probable U.S. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush delivers the commencement address at Liberty University in LynchburgBy Steve Holland LYNCHBURG, Va. (Reuters) – Republican Jeb Bush sought to bolster his support among evangelical Christians on Saturday in remarks at a Christian university, accusing liberals of trying to undermine religious freedom. The potential presidential candidate in the November 2016 election gave the commencement speech to 34,000 people in the football stadium at Liberty University, a school founded by evangelical leader Jerry Falwell. The former Florida governor, who is competing with a variety of Republican rivals for support from the Christian right, cited a series of cases that, he said, showed religious freedom was under assault and considered by some to be an “obstacle to enlightened thought.” One was an attempt by President Barack Obama’s administration to require businesses to include contraception coverage in their employees’ health insurance as part of Obama’s signature healthcare law.
