The Problem In The American Ghetto Is Liberalism

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal Legalizes LGBTQ Discrimination

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal ® issued an executive order Tuesday that legalizes religious discrimination against the state’s LGBTQ community.

The executive action is in response to the failure of the GOP-majority state legislature to pass the so-called Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act, which would codify discrimination of LGBTQ people by those who oppose marriage equality.

HB 707, sponsored by Rep. Mike Johnson (R-Bossier City), would have prohibited the state from taking action against a person, organization, or business if they acted in accordance with a religious belief or moral conviction about marriage.

The House Civil Law Committee voted 10-2 Tuesday to effectively kill the bill through a procedural move.

“There’s never a convenient time to stand up for liberty,” Johnson said after the bill’s defeat in committee, according to the New Orleans Advocate. “This issue’s not going away, though.”

As in Indiana and Arkansas, Louisiana faced a backlash against the legislation from LGBTQ advocates and those in the business community who warned the anti-gay policy would be bad for the bottom line.

Stephen Perry, the President and CEO of the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau,told the Associated Press that the bill would make the state “complicit in officially state-sanctioned bigotry” and hurt the state’s economy to the tune of $65 million per year.

“We’re attempting to … carve out the ability to discriminate, the ability to be bigoted,” Perry said.
