Yesterday, the American Future Project released a TV ad featuring Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. The ad dealt with the issue of religious freedom in America and featured clips from two speeches Jindal has given:
Our religious liberty must, in no way, ever be linked to the ever changing opinions of the public. We must understand that our freedom of conscience protects all Americans of every persuasion. These are rights endowed by our creator, given humanity by God above.
The United States of America did not create religious liberty, religious liberty created the United States of America.
The ad was released on the eve of an executive order Jindal issued this morning that is said to capture the intent of religious freedom legislation that failed to pass a House committee in Louisiana yesterday, as Maggie has already covered.
