Jindal promises executive order on religious liberty

Justin Wm. Moyer, The Washington Post

On Tuesday, to the dismay of Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), Louisiana’s proposed Marriage and Conscience Act failed in the state’s house. But after the bill failed, Jindal stepped into the breach. “We are disappointed by the committee’s action to return the Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act to the calendar,” Jindal said in a statement, as the Times-Picayune reported. “We will be issuing an Executive Order shortly that will … prevent the state from discriminating against persons or entities with deeply held religious beliefs that marriage is between one man and one woman.”

On Nov. 26, SCOTUS will confer on Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius, Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius and Autocam v. Sebelius, all of which challenge the constitutionality of Obamacare’s contraception mandate. In two of the cases, judges concluded that the mandate violates the 1st Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
