Bobby Jindal Gambles with Louisiana

Bobby Jindal

The Louisana governor says "yes" to discrimination and tells equality-minded business to "save your breath."

In a New York Times op-ed, Louisiana governor (and presidential aspirant) Bobby Jindal writes that he doesn't care what happened in Arkansas and Indiana, when discriminatory, so-called religious freedom restoration acts backfired against state governments. Citizens protested and major business interests said they would not be expanding in Indiana or allowing planned events to take place there.

But Jindal is unmoved. He's supporting a Marriage and Conscience Act introduced by Republican state representative Mike Johnson that will allow businesses to deny service to people in same-sex marriages.

Some choice Jindal thoughts:

That political leaders in both states [Indiana and Arkansas] quickly cowered amid the shrieks of big business and the radical left should alarm us all.

As the fight for religious liberty moves to Louisiana, I have a clear message for any corporation that contemplates bullying our state: Save your breath.

The same people who think that profit making is vulgar believe that religiosity is folly.

Liberals have decided that if they can't win at the ballot box, they will win in the boardroom.

What will businesses and Louisianans do in response?
