Oh I love this. Democrats telling us about what religion is right and which one is wrong. Turns out, out of all the religions out there, Bobby Jindal’s religious beliefs are the incorrect one.
Really Chris, what are you going to do with that million dollars you have for attack ads? Is this the best you can come up with? I’m sure Chairman Villere will have a field day with you if that’s the best you can come up with. Really, attacking Bobby Jindal’s religious beliefs? And you think that’s going to offend the religious people in North Louisiana?
Let’s talk about out of touch. You see, most religious people do not care what other people’s religious beliefs are. Believe it or not, we are actually tolerant of other people’s religious beliefs.
Folks, this advertisement which is paid for by the Louisiana Democrat party should insult you in every way.
How many times have you heard wars being blamed on religious people, despite the myriad of wars that were started with out religion? How many times have you heard that Christians ‘force their religious values down people’s throat’? By having prayer in school? By having the Ten commandments on public display? By, *gasp* saying ‘Merry Christmas’?
The people behind these ads have an agenda, and that agenda is to get you to vote for somebody other than Bobby Jindal. What they are thinking with this ad is that most Christians are extremely intolerant of other people’s religious views. That you are extremely intolerant because you are a Christian.
But what these Democrat operatives don’t realize, what they don’t believe, is that we as Christians are extremely tolerant of other people’s religious beliefs. In fact, we love freedom, and because we love freedom, we respect it, even when somebody says something we disagree with, even if it is their religious beliefs.
We understand that not every Christian is going to believe exactly the same, but what we do understand is that the Constitution of the United States secured for each American, Rights that came from God himself, and they apply to everybody equally, and does not exclude a person just because they are of Indian descent.
We also understand that we each think our own religion is the best, and why shouldn’t we? I’m a Baptist, why would I continue to be a Baptist if I thought the Methodist we the best religion? I’m sure Methodist feel the same way, as do Catholics, and Jews feel the same I’m sure. We don’t agree on many things, but we do agree to tolerate each other.
And we do understand that when somebody comes after one religion, they come after us all. We have a duty to each other, as Christians, to defend each other’s right to believe in God as they see fit. We have a duty to stand up for our own religious beliefs, to defend others when they come under attack.
Mr. Whittington, as a Christian Baptist, I am insulted that you see my fellow Baptist, Methodist, and other Christians in North Louisiana as being hateful and intolerant enough that your ad could convince them not to vote for Bobby Jindal.
As a Republican, Mr. Whittington, I’d like to encourage you to continue to slap the voters of Louisiana in the face with insults. It’s the best gift Democrats have given to Republicans since, with that whole Kathleen Blanco four year debacle.
Just think Mr. Whittington, wasting a million dollars on ads that insults the Louisiana voter might not be your only legacy, you could be remembered as the guy who lost Democrat control over Louisiana. Keep up the good work!
