In a Speech made to a annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, 'Dynasty' Govenor Bobby Jindal told a crowd of 1000 evangelical leaders that his Spidey Senses were Tingling.

 "I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States," Jindal said, "where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren."

It appears that the Louisiana Governor is busy stoking the flames of fear and paranoia that are prime motivators for his conservative constituency. In another provocative statement that night he told the evangelicals that there was a 'Silent War' being waged on religious liberty in the United States.

The governor then went on to accuse that the left is religiously intolerant .

In this authors humble opinion, the only intolerance that is happening today is coming from the Righteous Right wishing to impose their particular brand of ideology on the entire U. S population. Thereby converting the United States from a Democracy into a Fundamentalist Theocracy.

Oddly one of the country's founding principles "freedom 'of ' religion" was a result of Religious separatist (pilgrims)  that wanted to withdraw from some larger Christian religious groups (Church of England) They were trying to avoid having to practice religion in the fashion that the Church/State of england dictated.They could then be free to practice their religion as they saw fit. Thus if you are a Jew you are free to practice Judaism and not Christianity in the United States.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
