Jindal: Obama Hypocritical on Religious Freedom


Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is questioning President Barack Obama's commitment to religious freedom in the United States.

The Obama administration continues pressing religious organizations and businesses to comply with Obamacare's contraceptive mandate, even though it violates their religious beliefs.

Jindal said he was stunned to hear the president's defense of international religious freedom at this month's National Prayer Breakfast.

He contends Obama's remarks about religious liberty overseas stopped short of endorsing free exercise at home.

The Republican governor compared the remarks to Obama's often-repeated pledge that people who liked their health insurance could keep it.

"Once again, there's a Grand Canyon-size difference between what this president says and what he does," Jindal said.

Jindal said the president might as well be saying, "If you like your religion; you can keep your religion."
