Jindal: Hollywood And Corporate America Are ‘Assaulting’ Christians (VIDEO)

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) said on Thursday that Hollywood and corporations are working in cahoots to destroy freedom for Christians, not just in states pushing for “religious freedom” laws, but all across the country.

“We saw a very unusual alliance this week,” Jindal told a crowd at an Iowa homeschooling event, according to video obtained by Right Wing Watch. “We saw an alliance between Hollywood elites and corporate America assaulting the rights of Christians.”

Jindal shared a stage with three other presidential candidates, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who for his part said that gay people are waging a “jihad” against believing Christians.

“We need to remind these elites that America did not create religious liberty,” he went on, “religious liberty created the United States of America, and it is the reason we are here today.”

Jindal expressed his disappointment last week when Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) welcomed changes to the state’s “religious freedom” law that would guarantee that businesses could not discriminate against serving gay couples.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
