    Dunno, if it was done by bending the constitution then no.

    Just because we don't like it as a majority doesn't make our stance correct.
    Yes but that is no excuse for judicial activism.

    I wonder if his parents were American citizens when he was born in America.
    I’d rather see Ron Paul lead the GOP.

    That is New York though, very different from the south.

    Also, many Christians don't have problems with evolution.
    That is what irks me a lot with my southern brethren. I love this place, I grew up here but they can't accept any form of 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.

    From an anti-abortion website:
    Abortion Statistics

    "Women identifying themselves as Protestants obtain 37.4% of all abortions in the U.S.;

    Catholic women account for 31.3%,

    Jewish women account for 1.3%,

    and women with no religious affiliation obtain 23.7% of all abortions.

    18% of all abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as "Born-again/Evangelical"."
    So, if true, what that shows is that non-religious people are disproportionately more likely to have abortions while Christians are disproportionally less likely to do so.

    IMO, Jindal is not the one to unseat Obama in 2012, or even 2016.....
    and IF after Obama another DEM wins, it will be because the GOP has still not learned its lesson...
    Staying the course was the easy path for Bush, and even McCain, as there was little thought involved, and you can see where that got us...

    True, but it is a state level GOP ticket. South however, is as you say, different.

    Well, not accepting evolution isn't inherently bad. It's using the related products that I find strange and inherently contradictory. Having a candidate for the office of President who's beliefs say that nuclear power and biosciences are all fake yet calls for more of them is rather a large red flag.

    As a percent of the population yes, but religious people are having more abortions.

    fyi Re: Is Jindal the new face of the GOP?

    My question: Is Bobby Jindal the new face of the GOP?
    The question is: Is he committed to eliminating excessive government programs, projects, and regulations? Is he dedicated to less spending, lower taxes, balanced budgets, and strong libertarian policies?
