Potential 2016 presidential candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., joined host Chuck Todd on NBC News’ Meet the Press to discuss the growing topic of religious freedom laws.
“So you think it’s okay, based on religious conviction, for a business to deny services to a same-sex couple?” Todd asked.
“Chuck, we’re not talking about restaurants denying service to people who want to come have dinner, we’re not talking about day-to-day routine commercial transactions,” Jindal replied. “We’re talking about a very specific example here of business owners – of florists, musicians, and caterers – who are being forced to either pay thousands of dollars or close their businesses if they don’t want to participate in a wedding ceremony that contradicts their religious beliefs.”

“So in that instance, yeah, I think part of the first amendment means we allow individuals to obey their conscience, to obey their religious beliefs,” he added.
