Gov. John Bel Edwards signed an executive order Wednesday barring state discrimination against gay Louisianans. Boy exorcist Bobby Jindal (the previous governor) signed an executive order that protected government workers in that state from repercussions for discriminating against LGBTQ people. You know, inviting open season.
Edwards called [Jindal’s order] “bad for business, tourism and the Louisiana economy” and said it did “nothing but divide our state … to serve a narrow political agenda.”
