A new survey shows a majority of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, along with a majority of whites and blacks, along with all demographics of women support Gov. Bobby Jindal’s thrown down against the types of huge corporations that scared Gov. Mike Pence into backing down on Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Not long after Pence buckled to the Big Gay Hate Machine and its allies in major corporations, Jindal practically dared them to try the same thing with him and his state. To back that up, he and his allies in the State house introduced the Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act, a law that would explicitly prohibit the government from punishing anyone for their beliefs about marriage.

The law says the state could not “deny or revoke an exemption from taxation, disallow a deduction for state tax purposes of any charitable contribution made to or by such a person.”

A new poll of 500 likely voters commissioned by the Family Research Council and the Louisiana Family Forum shows a majority of Louisiana voters support the measure (67 percent to 25 percent). Men 18-54 support it 70 percent to 24 percent. Whites support it 70 percent to 23 percent. Blacks support is nearly two to one (70 percent to 23 percent).

The survey shows also that Louisiana voters across all categories, except liberals, are more likely to vote for a legislator who votes for this bill.

The left is already up in arms. The gay Advocate publication and Think Progress have already pounced.
