Gov. Jindal to issue "religious freedom" executive order after its failure in Legislature

Within a few hours after the controversial "Marriage and Conscience Act"*was voted back to the legislative calendar by a Louisiana House committee, Gov. Bobby Jindal is readying an executive order to "to prevent the state from discriminating against persons or entities with deeply held religious beliefs that marriage is between one man and one woman."

In a statement, Jindal said he was "disappointed in the committee's action" to effectively kill the bill as it will likely wait out the remainder of the 2015 legislative session. Jindal's 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.?

Jindal's rebuttal to the committee vote follows his "religious liberty" ad, released today.*

This guy is a loose canon. His decision will effect the local economy. He is trying to do everything he can to bring down the state prior to leaving office. I don't understand how the residents there can take any of his antics lying down. I am very disappointed by my birth state.
