Bobby Jindal: Be Careful About Creating "Special Rights" For LGBT Americans

Via Mediaite:
Louisiana is considering a so-called “religious freedom” act similar to Indiana’s. Critics allege the bills are Trojan Horses that allow for discrimination against gays and lesbians. Jindal would not comment on his state’s legislation specifically, but said that people too easily defaulted to government, especially in the case of protected statuses against discrimination. “I have faith and confidence in the people in America and the people of New Orleans and the people of Louisiana to not tolerate discrimination, to not support businesses that want to support discrimination,” he continued. “So absolutely we need to have a society where we’re not discriminating against people. I do think we need to be very careful about creating special rights.”
