Following the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage, Bobby Jindal made it clear in a statement that this is not for him an issue to get over and accept:
The Supreme Court decision today conveniently and not surprisingly follows public opinion polls, and tramples on states’ rights that were once protected by the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that.
He reiterated his support for a Constitutional amendment in a Politico op-ed and in a television interview with Chuck Todd, and he specifically stood with those losing their livelihoods because they do not want to cater to a same-sex wedding:
Here’s where the next fight’s going. I think the Left is now going to go after our First Amendment rights. I think it is wrong for the federal government to force Christian individuals, businesses, pastors, churches to participate in wedding ceremonies that violate our sincerely held religious beliefs. We have to stand up and fight for religious liberty. That’s where this fight is going. The Left wants to silence us. Hillary Clinton wants to silence us. We’re not going away.
Governor Jindal, please take a hard look at the First Amendment Defense Act, and endorse it.
