Landrieu, Jindal, same-sex marriages and dueling executive orders
 

It is very rare that a social issue generates as much interest and discourse than that of religious liberty versus gay-rights.

crouere-sabludowsky-punchingAnd what we saw today, talk radio and Google hangouts is indeed a terrific form for such heavy discussion.

 Unquestionably, gay-rights is the civil rights issue of the century.  That issue along with the counter-issue of religious liberty is reverberating not only nationally but worldwide.

Days ago, Ireland recognized same-sex marriages.  Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has been at the forefront of making religious liberty a presidential campaign issue.

In Louisiana, where this debate has resonated due to legislation filed by Representative Mike Johnson and supported by Jindal, the current discussion over the legislation and an executive order by Gov. Jindal (after the defeat of Johnson’s bill in house committee)  has set off numerous opinion pieces in the local and national media.  Following that defeat, Jindal signed an executive order which he said would fulfill the same intent  as the failed legislation. Shortly afterwards, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu took to his own executive order which likewise received national attention. All of this commotion has existed under the backdrop of senseless murders in the city New Orleans, a state budget deficit of an astounding $1.6 billion and other critical issues to the citizens of Louisiana.

On a WGSO-Bayoubuzz Google hangout Tuesday morning , host Jeff Crouere and Bayoubuzz publisher Stephen Sabludowsky (along with callers to the radio station) discussed many of these deeply-emotional  issues.  

Listen and watch excerpts from this “hot” and visceral debate being played out in work, family and social settings around America.
