Columnist for The Advocate Quin Hillyer and Executive Director of Louisiana Progress Bruce Parker join us to discuss the recent marriage ruling in Louisiana concerning same sex couples. On Wednesday September 3rd, Louisiana Federal Judge Martin Feldman made a ruling that upheld Louisiana's ban on the marriage of same sex couples as constitutional, and also upheld the state's refusal to recognize such unions preformed legally in other states. Quin Hillyer and Bruce Parker share different views on the matter and they discuss their opinions with Jim for the better part of today's show.
Also, former Speaker of the House and State Representative Joe Delpit closes out the remainder of today's show to talk with Jim about gerrymandering in Louisiana. Joe's big issue on the subject is how he, a Baton Rouge resident, can have New Orleans native Cedric Richmond representing him in Washington while his neighbors across the street are represented by Bill Cassidy. He and Jim discuss this, and much more.
