LOUSIANA: Bobby Jindal Blocks State Recognition Of Same-Sex Marriage

SCOTUS has ruled, the Fifth Circuit has ruled, but Bobby Jindal just doesn’t care.

Gov. Bobby Jindal delayed — for the second time — the recognition of same-sex marriage by the Louisiana state government on Wednesday evening. The governor refused to let Louisiana agencies acknowledge same-sex marriage following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last Friday. At the time, he said he was waiting for a lower appeals court to affirm the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, before moving forward with same-sex marriage recognition in Louisiana. But now that the lower appeals court confirmed Louisiana’s same-sex marriage ban has been overturned, Jindal has decided Louisiana same-sex couples need to wait for yet another court’s decision. “Our agencies will follow the Louisiana Constitution until the District Court orders us otherwise,” said Mike Reed, Jindal’s spokesman in the governor’s office.

In its opinion released Wednesday evening, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals made it clear that Louisiana’s same-sex marriage ban no longer applies, though it technically sent a same-sex marriage case back to a U.S. District court for reversal. Jindal is saying the state government won’t recognize same-sex marriage until the District Court issues its own decision. The appeals court gave the district court until until July 17 to make a new ruling, though it has encouraged the district court to do so earlier. One of the plaintiffs in the case, Robert Welles, is in declining health. “I wait every day for a phone call,” said the 52-year-old Welles. “The way I see it, we started this thing in New Orleans, and we want to finish it in New Orleans.” But Kyle Duncan, a lawyer working for Louisiana and the Jindal administration, said it makes sense for state agencies to wait to recognize same-sex marriage until the district court ruling. “The court made it crystal clear,” he said. “It’s when the district court renders final judgment.”

You’d almost think that Jindal is hoping that the plaintiff will die before his marriage is recognized.

    Way to go, Piyush. Your star just keeps rising. Who knows what higher office you may be elected to in the future? /S

  • Pete

    Jindal is a total clown. Pathetic fool trying to out-asshole Ted Cruz.

    • Time Warper

      Piyush, Cruz, Rubio… all anchor babies and all the worst thing that could happen to a civilized nation.

      • clay

        Technically, Cruz is not an anchor baby, except in Canada.

        • Time Warper

          Second hand anchor baby is just as shitty, but I haven’t seen any of their birth certificates so I don’t know where they hell they were born or how they go there.

    • bkmn

      They don’t seem to understand that sucking up to the base won’t help them when it comes to the general election, or they just don’t care and are gunning for book and speaking deals.

  • Robincho

    Gunga Dim strikes again. The douchebaggery here is of galactic proportions…T

    • HadenoughBS

      Jindal is THE human face of LGBT animus and openly blatant hatred of a segment of his state’s citizens. The people of Louisiana must be extremely proud by electing this bigot as their governor (not so much many Louisiana Chambers of Commerce, tourism bureaus, state universities, etc.)!

    • barracks9

      Punjabba the Butt DOES care. He cares deeply that he is perceived as the One Pure Candidate, who stands unwavering in his opposition to Marriage Equality. He continues to pander relentlessly to an ever-shrinking demographic that requires their candidate of a particular moral fiber. Single-issue voters? Nah, let’s talk about The Single-Issue Candidate.

      • Paul

        Nah, Santorum and Huckabee already have him beat on the “purity” issue regarding marriage equality. At least Jindal is allowing the counties to issue licenses. The other 2 probably would have ordered the clerks NOT to issue licenses.

        • barracks9

          I think BJ is banking on perception alone – he’s doing everything he can to drag this out, which he can point to when barking at his fan base – “See what I did for you – those mean unelected activist judges are stealing your rights!!”

          He seems to be doing everything EXCEPT forbidding the parish clerks to obey the law. Curious, that.

          • Sk3ptic

            BJ!! Beej!
            This makes me smile. And he’d probably smile more if he were the recipient of one more often.

      • TommyTune

        Did you read the comments on the NOLA.com site? Not even a single comment in support of Piyush. Most were scathing.

        • Dramphooey

          I think the people have figured Peeyoo or whatever his name is getting ready to fly to the national stage and leave their state a wreck with a pack of lawsuits.

        • Bj Lincoln

          They are not very happy with him. Good!

        • TreGibbs

          Especially in the Indian Community. Entire communities in the Bay Area denounce him and his ethnicity (as in, “he’s not one of us”)

      • Corey

        Excuse me, God and Piyushie doesn’t cu-uh-care, just like Becky Rommel…

        I am still in a laughing stupor after seeing this 24 hours ago. I just about pee when I imitate her.

  • Time Warper

    Goddamn third worlder. Apu needs to learn how the laws of this nation work.

    • Please don’t insult Apu. And please do not feed peanuts to his god.

      • Time Warper

        True. Apu only price gouges to steal. Piyush robbed the state of no telling how much (that billion plus debt for the year went somewhere) and blocked BP victims from suing his brother’s employer. Apu is a petty crook while Piyush just petty. At any rate the family needs to be deported back to what every country his mother used to suck camel dicks in for a living before they border hopped.

    • Doug105

      Ya, thats not racist at all…………..

      • JCF

        Time Warper wants to warp on back to the 50s. The 1850s!

  • Todd20036

    There’s your damned animus, SCOTUS.
    Someone tell this Indian he will never get past the first debate in the GOP.

    • TommyTune

      Correction: Donald Trump will bump him out of the top ten so he won’t even make it as far as the first debate. He’ll be a loser right out of the gate.

      • Todd20036

        I think there will be 2 initial debates: the A-list of “serious” candidates (who poll the highest) and the B-list of Fox “news” commentators wannabees.

        • IamM

          If they had any sense, they’d all skip the train wreck official Fox+GOP staged debates for the one in New Hampshire.

          Any new developments there?

  • Tawdry D’Tails

    Because the public can totally relate to denying a dying person’s wish to be married… Jindal 2016! (Oops, that ! is trademarked.)
    They’re simply aren’t enough synonyms for “evil” or “asshole” out there.

    so NO licenses have been issued to same sex couples in the last week in Louisiana?

  • SoCalVet

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Piyush is quickly becoming an untouchable.

        “quickly becoming”?

      • ScottJL

        Well at this point what else is he good for? Seems the folk of Louisiana are tired of him, he’s got no real shot at being President. It’s Faux news or open his own convenience store.

  • Blake Jordan

    No animus at all in these stall tactics..

    Can Piyush be personally sued for this?

    • ScottJL

      In the USA anyone can be sued for anything. 😜

      • Time Warper

        Except for politicians. You have no rights against them.

    • William

      It’s Louisiana. You have to be satisfied knowing he will end up in prison or the crazy hospital.

      • JustSayin’

        He’s closed most of the mental care facilities to give tax breaks to rich people and he is not dark enough to get serious prison time in Louisiana.

        • William

          Last I heard, Charity Hospital in New Orleans was sitting empty and abandoned. That place was built to withstand a direct hit from a category Armageddon hurricane.

  • Forgive me for getting slightly off-topic, but there is a particularly nasty piece of work over at Crisis Magazine:

    http://www.crisismagazine.com/2015/on-justice-kennedys-tenuous-grasp-of-human-dignity

    Just one quote: “The man who says that he is not capable of joining with a woman in the ordinary way of nature is asserting a psychological incapacity … We have not prevented him from marrying. He has simply refrained from availing himself of the opportunity.”

    • Sam_Handwich

      wow, that’s some unhinged BS

    • The Milkman

      I’ve heard this argument many times before. It’s one based on semantics, with the main point being that since marriage can ONLY be defined as man-woman union, no gay people are being denied marriage. It’s ridiculous on its face, and is the equivalent of hiding one’s head in the sand.
      Long story short: we won, they lost, and if they continue this ridiculousness, they need to start googling the term “personal liability”.

      Hey Jindal, you should try BEHAVING like adults while you’re at it. Talk is cheap.

  • disqus_oCvsL5SBJH

    Isn’t this litigious reverse order? the Supreme Court, the 5th circuit? These are dispositive rulings for lower courts. They’ve ruled, that’s all you need to know. The next step is going to be handcuffs for Jindal

    • lymis

      Technically, they didn’t rule on the specific case at hand. They stated the precedent that must be followed. The Fifth Circuit cases were not specifically before the Supreme Court. The Fifth Circuit directed the lower court to rule in accordance with the precedent. Other courts will also be required to base future rulings on the same precedents. Purely technically, this isn’t in any way incorrect.

      But it is supremely petty on Jindal’s part.

      There is no question what the ruling will be, and Jindal knows it.

  • Bluto

    Party of stupid, your table is ready. Now send in the national guard as the wait staff.

  • CubbyPQ

    Yes, it’s become personal against Welles. Reminds me of the way Jeb Bush was gunning for Michael Schiavo.

    • John30013

      I was going to write exactly the same thing. Especially if Mr. Welles passes away before Jindal’s recalcitrance abates, it will definitely be Jindal’s “Terri Schiavo” moment.

      • IamM

        Maybe Welles can arrange for his estate to sue ‘Bobby’ the prize bigot in the unfortunate event?

        Damages, emotional suffering, punitive damages, malfeasance, civil rights violations, dereliction of duty…

    For fucks sake, because the District Court might overrule the Supreme Court, Bobby? That’s not how this woirks. That’s not how any of this works.

        Fox always has room for a token minority to prove they’re not racist. They have that black guy right now so they’re probably good, but they can keep Jindal in the binders full of minorities.

          • LonelyLiberal

            You can take out kudzu by mixing half-strength Round Up, putting it in a baby food jar, punching a hole in the lid, and feeding a strand and leaf into the jar so that the leaf sits in the solution.

            That one leaf will absorb the solution (slowly enough due to the half strength) to kill the entire strand right back to the root–including the root and all other strands attached to it. It does take a while.

    Until Jindal lets the state government acknowledge gay marriage, same-sex couples may not able to file amended tax returns to reflect their marriage status or put both of their names on an adopted child’s birth certificate, among other things.

    Louisiana is a third world country. The infant mortality rate is almost exactly the same as Botswana. 11% of infants suffer from low birth weight. Roads are worse than most middle-income developing countries. Buildings are decayed. The HDI is by far the lowest in the US, and on a par with, say, Belarus. It is also an extremely dangerous place to live; the murder rate is higher than, say, Haiti’s.

    Is it a wonder, then, that their attitudes are also slightly backward?

  • DonMN763

    Republicans are blind to the delicious irony (and outright humor) of referring to “lawless Obama.” It seems every presidential election is a Republican race to the bottom of the barrel.

  • Queequeg

    This asshole says he wants to be president and he doesn’t even understand the role of the Supreme Court. I guess there legally is a 25 reconsideration, but most stares are complying now. On the 26th day, the Federal government should slap a lawsuit on Piyush’s scrawny ass.

    • John30013

      The 25-day reconsideration period only applies to the losing parties in the case–that is, the states of Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee–all of whom have already said they would comply with the decision.

      So that issue is moot. In the 5th Circuit, the court of appeals has ruled that the cases before it have now been decided in favor of marriage equality. That affected cases from Texas and Mississippi.

      The case in Louisiana had been decided (at the District court level) against marriage equality, and was on appeal to the 5th Circuit but had not been taken up by that court yet. The 5th Circuit’s recent order requires the District Court in Louisiana to reissue its ruling in light of Obergefell. Jindal is shamefully standing on the letter of the law and requiring state agencies to wait for the amended ruling from the District Court, even though the outcome of that ruling is a foregone conclusion. Per the 5th Circuit’s ruling, the District Court has until July 17 to issue its amended order.

      • Queequeg

        Thanks for the clarification. So, actually Jindal is an even bigger asshole than I thought, and I didn’t have a very high opinion of him to begin with. I keep reflecting back to that video of him with his kids and thinking that some day they will have to live down his reputation.
        I don’t think even he is dumb enough to believe that he will be elected president. He’s got to be working on a book, and perhaps a Fox News commentator job.

    Oh, Piyush, you sad, Bible-thumping, Jeebus-loving bastard. This is why conservatism is seen as the ideology for the slow of mind.

    You take extraordinary measures against human rights, but yet your voice is virtually silent by comparison when it comes to the social cesspool which is your state.

    Louisiana ranks 47th in the country in terms of the well-being of its children.

  • leo77

    He is so far up Tony Perkins ass you can only see the soles of his feet.

  • Steverino

    Piyush can shove it.

  • Bobby Jindal is not fit to have been elected to be a second assistant dogcatcher, much less a governor. Any good and decent people who live in Louisiana must be terribly embarrassed to have him as their governor.

  • DirtyPierre

    this is more like it.

      We’re on the same wavelength–his photo reminded me of one I just saw the other day . . .

      Someone put this photo next to one of Hitler’s side by side.

      I swear, Hitler was the better looking man.

      • LonelyLiberal

        Hitler had decent bone structure. Jindal’s just kind of doughy in the face.

        Plus we can forgive Hitler his haircut since it was the forties and that was pretty standard. We have so many bouffant and styling product options these days that there IS no excuse for Jindal.

    • JCF

      He *does* have a Hitler Herr-Cut.

    Can Robert Welles sue Bobby Jindal in civil court over this? Any attorney want to weigh in?

    • JustSayin’

      ACLU has already filed suit against his delays.

  • billbear1961

    Evil, pandering SHIT!

  • LADY MABELINE

    This will be what you are most remembered for Mr. Jindal. You may want to read up on George Wallace. You will soon have plenty of time.

  • Michael

    Is it legal.. there has to be a lawyer around here to answer the question?

    • JustSayin’

      Legal yes moral no.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Pandering can be a bitch…….

    • William

      He’s a Kochsucker.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Quite right 🙂

  • bambinoitaliano
  • DaveMiller135

    Last I read, his polling numbers were effectively zero. A little name recognition, even the bad kind, couldn’t hurt.

  • SFBruce

    Jindal can’t possibly be unaware of Robert Welles’ declining health, and he could show that just maybe he has a soul, and get the hell out of the way. But no, pandering to primary Republican voters is this man’s priority.

  • 2patricius2

    Is he running to win in the “most disgusting person in the country” contest?

  • Mihangel apYrs

    the most appropriate word I can think of is “spiteful”: he has a residual ability to hurt before it all changes.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Piss off Piyush, you pathetic pile of solidified PUKE !

  • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

    Because of the 5th circuit returning it to the circuit court, this is, for the moment, legal. It’s a delaying tactic. He knows. He knows we know.

  • John T

    Bobby, you can try as hard as you want to make it look like you’re taking a principled stand on this issue, but Bubba from the bayou will still never, ever love you back.

  • tomfromthenews

    Doesn’t federal recognition trump state recognition?

    • David Walker

      Yes, unless the governor is running for president.

  • Ninja0980

    I’m sure Judge Feldman, the first judge to uphold a ban post Windsor and was hostile to our side from the start, will be rushing to issue the final order.
    I expect him to pull a Judge Jones of NV stunt and recuse himself on the last day and make another judge issue the order instead.

    • David Walker

      As opposed to PA’s Judge Jones who relegated the animus to “the dustbin of history.”

  • Toasterlad

    Some people are remarkably stupid. Some people are remarkably evil. And some people are, like Bobby Jindal, both.

  • Rich Farias

    I hate this assclown so fucking much… I look forward to the innumerable lawsuits against him personally, and the Federal obstruction of justice charges.

  • Justin

    He’s going to get spanked. Soundly. And not in a fun, sexually satisfying way. I bought extra popcorn.

    • Tor

      I can be really mean, sometimes. Me first!

  • hdtex

  • IM. PEACH. MENT.

    At this point I’d vote for Edwin Edwards again, just to see this ass-clown booted out of office and hopefully find some way to send his stank back to India to rot.

    I’m surprised the judge was so quick – I was expecting him to stall or recuse himself. Over to you now Priyush !

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      I wonder what bullcrap he’ll come up with now.

      • StillALiberal

        I think that might be it (fingers crossed). It will be funny if his attempt to hornswoggle GOP voters with this King Canute act lasts less than a day!

  • Tor

    He’s just a mean little man.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of leverage the Federal government will use against this shriveled raisin. Makes for good theater!

  • Eric Bryce

    As another citizen of the state I can say that once again Jindal has made Louisiana the butt crack of the nation.

  • zoli

    shouldn’t he be under water?

  • JCF

    “You’d almost think that Jindal is hoping that the plaintiff will die before his marriage is recognized.”

    Ya think?
