Bobby Jindal Vows To Issue “Religious Liberty” Executive Order After State House Committee Kills Bill HB#707

Bobby Jindal

 

This afternoon the Louisiana House Committee sent HB#707, the states own version of an anti-gay “Religious Liberty” bill back to the calendar bn over-whelming vote of 10 – 2  effectively killing any chance of passage for this season.

After the defeat Tony Perkins best butt buddy Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal vowed to issue a Religious Liberty Executive Order to make up for the hate bills death.

“We are disappointed by the committee’s action to return the Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act to the calendar. We will be issuing an Executive Order shortly that will accomplish the intent of HB 707 to prevent the state from discriminating against persons or entities with deeply held religious beliefs that marriage is between one man and one woman. This Executive Order will prohibit the state from denying or revoking a tax exemption, tax deduction, contract, cooperative agreement, loan, professional license, certification, accreditation, or employment on the basis the person acts in accordance with a religious belief that marriage is between one man and one woman.

In the past Jindal has said about President Obama issuing an executive order on immigration:

“If the President wants to make the case that the law should be changed, he should go make the case to Congress and our people. This is an arrogant, cynical political move by the President, and it’s why so many Americans no longer trust this President to solve the problems we face.”

If Jindal has the nerve and stupidity to issue the executive order, we should all push for a public backlash against the state by boycotting it and its products.
