Gov. Bobby Jindal Gives Statement on Phil Robertson Reinstatement

The Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal, is giving his statement on the reinstatement of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch, Phil Robertson.
MONROE -- Following the reinstatement of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch, Phil Robertson, to the hit A&E reality show after he was suspended last week, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal released this statement Friday night:

“I am glad to hear that the folks at A&E came to their senses and recognized that tolerance of religious views is more important than political correctness.  Today is a good day for the freedoms of speech and religious liberty," Jindal said.
 
“The left is going to have to get accustomed to the fact that it does not have a monopoly on free speech and is not the only group who is permitted to voice its opinion in the public square. The left may control Hollywood, but they don’t control the hearts and minds of a majority of Americans.”

Robertson was suspended from the show last week after making controversial comments about homosexuality in an interview with GQ Magazine.

Now that he is reinstated, A&E said filming for the show will resume in the spring.
