Jindal says he wants the Republicans to stop being the “stupid party” but he’s apparently more than happy to have them continue to be the bigotry party. On Sunday he said that he supports the push for a Federal Marriage Amendment that would ban same-sex marriage nationwide.
On ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Jindal told host George Stephanopoulos that he continues to believe that marriage is “between a man and a woman.” While claiming to be against “discrimination against anyone,” he lamented: “Many politicians are evolving — so called ‘evolving’ on this issue based on the polls. I don’t change my views based on the polls.”
He boasted that Louisiana — one of just 14 states without marriage equality after Friday’s court ruling in Alabama — has a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. He said he hopes the U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t throw out the law but that, if they did, “I certainly support Ted Cruz and others that are talking about making an amendment, the Congress in D.C., a constitutional amendment to continue to allow states to continue to define marriage.”
