Washington, June 29: Indian-American Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has lashed out at US President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton for their views on same sex marriage, alleging that they evolved their views based on opinion polls.
"Both the President and Hillary evolved their views because of opinion
polls. They can read opinion polls just like the Supreme Court," said
Jindal, the 13th Republican aspirant to aim for the White House in 2016
"My view of marriage is based on my Christian faith. No early court's decision is going to change that. I think marriage is between a man and a woman," Jindal told to media.
Obama has said the
ruling is a victory for America while Clinton also praised the landmark
decision of the US Supreme Court which legalized same sex marriage, holding
that gay people can get married in all 50 states of the country.
"I think they're all created equal in god's eyes. And 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," he said.
Jindal said America has moved towards a much better view on race relations.
