With the Supreme Court set to hear oral arguments Tuesday involving state bans on same-sex marriage, the national conversation on the topic is heating up.

The most recent example of a politician to weigh in is Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

On Thursday, Jindal conveyed his views in an opinion editorial in the New York Times called “I’m Holding Firm Against Gay Marriage.”

“I hold the view that has been the consensus in our country for over two centuries: that marriage is between one man and one woman,” Jindal wrote.

He called for conservatives and business leaders to unite on religious freedom laws.

“Conservatism faces many challenges in today’s America. Hollywood and the media elite are hostile to our values and they tip the scales to our liberal opponents at every opportunity,” Jindal continued.

He also conveyed support for a bill in Louisiana called the “Marriage and Conscience Act” which would “prohibit the state from denying a person, company or nonprofit group a license(..) based on the person or entity’s religious views on the institution of marriage.”
