Jindal responds to A&E suspending Duck Dynasty star



Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal  has released a statement in response to A&E suspending Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson.  A&E put Robertson on indefinite hiatus after he told GQ that gays are sinners.

Here is the the news release from Jindal's office:

Governor Bobby Jindal issued a statement this morning following the news of Phil Robertson being suspended by A&E from the show Duck Dynasty.

Governor Jindal said, “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV.  In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views.  In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended "
