Stephanopoulos tries to snag Jindal on ‘Our God Wins’ remark ; not so fast George . . .

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal raised eyebrows with a religious comment he made this weekend.

Our God wins,” he said at a prayer rally he attended Saturday.

Jindal, a Republican, appeared on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” and defended his stance.

“I was struck by the final line, ‘our God wins,’” Stephanopoulos said. “How do you think that lands in a country of 320 million people, of many different spiritualities, many different kinds of faith, many who believe in no God at all?”

“You know, it is a time-honored tradition, going back to our nation’s founding, for our presidents, for our leaders to turn to God for guidance, for wisdom,” Jindal replied. “We are a diverse country, obviously a majority of people are Christians, but we don’t discriminate against anybody. That’s one of the great things about America. We believe in religious liberty.”

Jindal also didn’t back down from the assertion that there are Muslim ‘no-go zones’ in Europe, particularly France, where authorities effectively cede control to criminal gangs or Muslim clerics. And he didn’t flinch from the backlash that resulted.

“I know it made a lot of people upset, but we need leaders to tell us the truth,” he said.

Leaders who tell us the truth?

What a novel concept.
