Liberals Launch Salvo at Gov. Jindal Prayer Rally

As Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal prepares his foray into the Republican presidential primary, liberals in the media can't decide whether to criticize him as a radical right-wing Christian fundamentalist who believes that God controls disease and natural disaster, or if he's just another political opportunist wooing the powerful Christian base of the party.

-- From "Is Bobby Jindal's mass prayer rally at LSU a clue to his presidential plans?" by Julia O'Donoghue, The Times-Picayune 12/13/14

Gov. Bobby Jindal will host a mass prayer rally on the LSU campus in January called "The Response," sponsored by the American Family Association, a conservative Christian group based out of Mississippi.

American Family is covering the cost of the event, scheduled for 10:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on Jan. 24 at the Maravich Assembly Center. The mass meeting is billed as a group meditation -- a response, if you will -- to the multiple crises facing the country.

This same group funded a similar mass prayer rally for Texas Gov. Rick Perry in 2011, just days before Perry announced his 2012 presidential campaign.

From "Louisiana Gov. Jindal’s prayer rally handouts blame gays and abortion for Hurricane Katrina" by David Ferguson, Raw Story 12/12/14

Among the re-used documents [from Perry's rally] is a “prayer guide” for Christians who are attending the rally that tells them how to pray in the seven days leading up to the rally.

The Day Two tells believers to meditate on God’s vengeance, beginning with the plagues God sent to Egypt for enslaving the Jews.

For Christian evangelicals, blaming gays and women for catastrophes is nothing new. Even as the Twin Towers in New York City burned on Sep. 11, 2001, the late evangelist Jerry Falwell said the attacks were the result of the U.S. “throwing God out of the public square.”
