WASHINGTON — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is accusing President Barack Obama and other Democrats of waging wars against religious liberty and education and saying that a rebellion is brewing in the U.S. with people ready for what he calls "a hostile takeover" of the nation's capital.
Jindal spoke Saturday night at the annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition. Organizers say more than 1,000 evangelical leaders have attended the three-day gathering.
A potential presidential candidate, Jindal says there is a "silent war" on religious liberty being fought in the U.S. — a country that he says was built on that liberty.
Jindal opposes Common Core education standards, telling the group that the federal government has no role, no right and no place dictating standards in local schools across the country.
