Gov. Bobby Jindal appeared on MSNBC's 'Meet The Press' on Sunday.

The GOP hopeful stated that Louisiana was "going to comply with the court order" regarding same sex marriage.

After agreeing that the state has no choice, he said that Louisiana's "agencies will comply with the court order. We were in a situation where we had it in our state constitution that marriage is between a man and a woman, a local federal judge actually upheld that." 

Jindal cited his reasoning behind his stances on same-sex marriage is his faith.

This comes days after State Attorney General, Buddy Caldwell said they "found nothing in the decision that makes the court's order effective immediately."
