Jindal Refuses to “Evolve” on Marriage

Well, that was quick.  A few days ago, I asked if former Gov. Mike Huckabee would be the only candidate to speak forcefully for marriage. Then, on Feb. 10, Gov. Jindal told CNN firmly and clearly he won’t be “evolving” on marriage and endorses a constitutional amendment to let the states decide if the Supreme Court tries to impose gay marriage. From the interview: [T]here are a lot of politicians that have so-called evolved on this issue – remember when Pres. Obama first ran for office, he was for traditional marriage. He saw the polls change; he changed his position. I’m not

Fiorina Criticizes Common Core, Touts Social Conservatism

In an interview with the Christian Post, published on February 6, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina expressed her views on a number of different issues, most notably on life, marriage, and Common Core. On life: [L]ife is an important issue that we shouldn’t be afraid to talk about. Like I said at that March for Life event, science is on our side. It shows that unborn babies feel pain and dream at five months and that the DNA on the day that we die is the same DNA we had as a zygote. Every human life is precious and has potential.

Will Huckabee Stand Alone?

So far in the GOP race for 2016, there has been only one candidate to stand up strongly in the last few weeks and months against the new raging political correctness that has completely overtaken the gay marriage and religious freedom debate: Gov. Mike Huckabee. He’s not stopping at just government policies either. Huckabee has made headlines recently for calling out Christians for “evolving” on the issue. From OneNewsNow.com: “As a biblical issue, unless I get a new version of the scriptures, it’s really not my place to say, OK, I’m just gonna evolve,” the former Arkansas governor contended. “It’s like

Taking on the Real Marriage Inequality

The Democrats like to talk about every kind of inequality, except the most devastating: marriage inequality. No I am not talking about the fact that non-marital unions aren’t treated as marriages (whether it is same-sex unions, or the latest progressive complaint over “singlism”). The most important marriage inequality in America is that 42 percent of children are growing up apart from their own mom and dad joined by marriage, according to the Census data (Current Population Survey) analyzed by respected family scholar Nicholas Zill. Of course the half-full good news in that is marriage is showing persistent and surprising strength: overall almost 6 in

Jindal Emphasizes Pro-Life, Pro-Marriage Views

After the American Principles Project’s State Lunch on February 5, LifeSiteNews interviewed Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. The governor stated that he was “proud to stand up for innocent, unborn life,” and that he was “proud to stand up and say that I believe in the traditional definition of marriage, between a man and a woman.” He urged his fellow potential candidates to follow suit and stand up for their conservative beliefs as well. Jindal reiterated that he was “a believer in traditional marriage…a believer in protecting innocent human life, unborn life. [As well as] a strong believer in religious liberty.” You

Huckabee Discusses Marriage, Religious Liberty on CNN

On February 1, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee appeared on CNN’s State of the Union and discussed his views on marriage. He lambasted other Christian politicians who have “evolved” on the issue, saying, “unless I get a new version of the scriptures, it’s really not my place to say, OK, I’m just gonna evolve.” Huckabee then likened asking a Christian to accept gay marriage to “asking somebody who is Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli.” You can find the full interview here.
