I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
And it shows that Jindal doesn't quite understand that he has to examine his own positions. YEC rejects the notion of radiometric dating and radioactivity as it based in the premise of extreme time lines. Yet the same principles for radioactivity underlie safe operations of nuclear power not to mention its basic operations. Jindal has called for nuclear power. This is inherently contradictory on his part as he is promoting something his beliefs say should not exist. And he's done much of the same for promoting biosciences in his state yet he rejects evolution never mind the obvious fact that biosciences, particularly bioengineering is based heavily in the theory of evolution. How can he call for enacting, funding and promoting things his belief say are fiction?
The possibility exists that he's using it for social conservative votes and doesn't believe in ID and YEc or he's just ignorant as to what his religious beliefs really are. I can accept the first one. The second is a vote killer.

I don't think it is possible for a major position like president. That is the main problem with the GOP, the fundamentalists and just the regular Christians have a hard time coming to terms with evolution.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
......that I was finally able to walk down the aisle of Trinity United Church of Christ one day and be baptized. It came about as a choice and not an epiphany; the questions I had did not magically disappear. But kneeling beneath that cross on the South Side of Chicago, I felt God's spirit beckoning me. I submitted myself to His will, and dedicated myself to discovering His truth." -Barak Obama, Audacity of Hope.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
