• Jindal: ‘Let’s Just Get Rid Of The Supreme Court’

    The newest GOP candidate to enter the 2016 presidential race, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, slammed the Supreme Court on Friday following its decision on Obamacare and its landmark ruling legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide.

    “The Supreme Court is completely out of control, making laws on their own, and has become a public opinion poll instead of a judicial body,” the 2016 contender said in a statement. “If we want to save some money, let’s just get rid of the court.”

    The Court’s historic 5-4 ruling ensures that states recognize same-sex marriages under the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. Justice Anthony Kennedy served as the swing vote, siding with the court’s more liberal members.

    Jindal said that the ruling fundamentally redefined the institution of marriage.

    “Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that,” he said

    Protecting same-sex marriage, he argued, will open the door to discrimination against people of faith who oppose its practice.

    “Hillary Clinton and the Left will now mount an all-out assault on religious freedom guaranteed in the first amendment,” Jindal said of the Democratic 2016 front-runner. “Regardless of your views on marriage, all freedom-loving people must pledge to respect our first amendment rights.”
