Jindal said he believes that the U.S. Supreme Court’s upcoming ruling on same-sex marriage in June may be too late to preserve the religious freedom of Louisiana residents who believe marriage is a union between one man and one woman.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal issued an executive order May 19th to block the state government from pulling licenses, tax exemptions, grants, and other benefits from companies because of their owners’ views on same-sex marriage or other deeply held religious beliefs.

The executive order carries out the original objectives of a bill sponsored by state Rep. Mike Johnson (R-Bossier City) in support of religious freedom, which died in committee hours before the executive order was issued.
