Jindal: Unlike Obama and Hillary, My Views on Marriage Don’t Evolve Because of Polls

‘My view of marriage is based on my Christian faith; no earthly court’s decision is going to change that’

TODD: “Well, I want to get you to respond, because you bring up a couple of debate points here that are familiar. But first, I want you to respond to this. This is from Ric Grenell, he's a long-time conservative foreign policy voice, worked in the Bush administration. And he makes a conservative case for same-sex marriage, writing this on FoxNews.com, ‘The debate on marriage within the Republican Party has been hijacked by those who wish to dictate their beliefs onto others. The only true conservative position, the individual right of marriage for all has been affirmed by the Supreme Court. It's time for consistent conservatives to come out in favor of the court's ruling.’ That's a conservative argument for same-sex marriage. Why do you believe he's wrong?”

JINDAL: “Well, look, I think he's wrong, I think Hillary Clinton, I think President Obama's wrong. Chuck, look, all your viewers know that both the president and Hillary evolve their views because of opinion polls. They can read opinion polls just like the Supreme Court. My view of marriage is based on my Christian faith. No earthly court's decision is going to change that. I think marriage is between a man and a woman. Now look, I think we're all created equal in God's eyes, I think we need to respect and love those we disagree with. I think we can have religious liberty without discrimination. My views on marriage aren't evolving with the polls. I can read polls just like the president can. It's based on my faith, I think it should remain between a man and a woman.”
