If Mr. Jindal doesn't want Federal standards in schools he doesn't need a dime of federal money, either.

As far as a "hostile takeover" of Washington goes, one need only look at Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan to see how it goes when the religious decide they need to use force of arms to make their doctrines the law of the land.

I am fully and totally opposed to war and don't own a gun. I will, however, be fully and actively opposed to those who want to replace our Constitutional Republic with a theocratic horror. The difference between Jindal and the leaders of ISIS in Iraq are the brand of horror they want to impose on their fellow citizens.

Jindal, is one tiny baby step from openly calling for armed rebellion and if he can't be charged under the Sedition Act of 1918 now, he should, in my opinion, be held legally responsible when the next McVeigh decides blowing up a federal building is the answer.

Talk about hyperbole. It must pay to jazz up the base, and incite the unbalanced.

When they start jailing people for merely being religious, I might start worrying. However, just because Mr. Jindal's particular religious views are not the law of the land, it does not mean the government is waging war against religion.

Rather, we are growing up as a country, and acknowledging that everyone does not believe as does Mr. Jindal and his fellow travelers. We allow those minority religious views into the public sector. And we pass laws that say that minority religious positions are allowed. For example, just because you don't believe in gay marriage, allowing it does not mean you have to get gay married. Only that your friendly, neighborhood Presbyterian minister can officiate and sign government documents that make it legal.

We are in a time that is becoming similar to that of the American Revolution. I hope people will stand up. We are in a crisis. Obama is a menace to our freedom and our constitution.

Sorry Bobby. There are no "wars against religious liberty and education" being waged against anybody by the Democrats (or anybody else). What is being waged is an attempt by the "religious" against those who wish to live their lives contrary to what the "religious" deem proper. That properly is being contested. Bobby is playing politics as usual.

Wow. Talk about laying on the hyperbole to keep the faithful scared and angry.

It's amazing as Gov Jindal speaks of the coming rebellion by upset Christian conservatives. We wouldn't have been where we are today if they wouldn't have stayed home with their vote to boycott Mitt Romney. They hated his morman background so much they were ready sacrifice so many of the gains made by Ronald Reagan. Last election was a no brainer but yet many of them stayed home. Go figure.

Obama is in no way a menace to our freedom and our Constitution. The people who are menaces to our freedom and our Constitution are the ones who are trying to impose a theocracy on our country while trying to deprive people of their Constitutional rights and the equal protection of the laws. Most particularly those on the extreme far right.

Dear irrational righties;

If you actually truly believe there is a war on religion. Then, I suggest you take a page of the Pilgrims book.

2 words: Patriot Act. When people stop electing Ivy Leaguers to the highest office in the land then maybe it will be crisis averted.

Do they pass out a pair of scissors for the final exam in Poli Sci 101 at Harvard, Yale, etc...?

Way to ratchet up the rhetoric another notch, Mr. Jindal. Just the type of mature, measured tone a nation looks for in a potential President.

Like Stormwalker, my mind went to Timothy McVeigh. Keep encouraging the distrust of your fellow Americans, conservative Christians. Keep nursing the persecution complex. History tells us that good things always follow from such indulgences.

"Jindal says rebellion brewing against Washington"

Yes, and we have already seen some early skirmishes . . . Anti-Government "Patriots" murdering police officers in Las Vegas and then covering their bodies with a Tea Party flag and a Swastika Banner . . . Another "Patriot" lurking near synagogues to murder targets of opportunity . . . Right Wingers denouncing Obama, Democrats, and the separation of Church and State . . . Busily brewing their rebellions.

Jindahl's Rebellion? . . . Same stuff . . . Different day.

This would be the same Faith and Freedom Coalition conference where Obama figurines were placed in the men's room urinals. Nothing wrong with that in principle (free speech and all that), but you would expect a group of conservative religious leaders to have a little more class. Or at least a little more creativity. Aren't they the ones railing against potty humor in movies and TV?
