Jindal 'Not For Discrimination' But Supports Ban On Same-Sex Marriage 


What if the US Supreme Court rules that gay marriage must be legal in all states? Well, Sunday morning Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal went on ABC’s “This Week” and told host George Stephanopoulos that if that should that happen he supports a constitutional amendment that would let state legislatures outlaw same-sex marriage.

“I’m not for discrimination against anybody” Jindal said. And then like 20 seconds later dude goes “I am proud that in Louisiana, we define marriage as between a man and a woman.” Hmmm. Ok. Arite. But he did just say that he isn’t “for” discrimination, right? Not trying to argue semantics here but saying you’re not “for discrimination” and then saying you’re proud of how discriminatory your state is…is weird.

From ‘The Week’:

I am proud that in Louisiana, we define marriage as between a man and a woman. If the Supreme Court were to throw out our law, our constitutional amendment — I hope they wouldn’t do that — if they were to do that, I certainly will support Ted Cruz and others that are talking about making an amendment in the congress and D.C., a constitutional amendment to allow states to continue to define marriage.

Okay so here’s what we know: We know that the Governor of Louisiana is “not for discrimination against anybody” but that he is proud of his state for defining marriage “between a man and a woman” and that he supports a constitutional amendment to make sure his state will keep upholding the discriminatory practice of banning same-sex marriage.
