Jindal Headlining All-day Prayer Rally in Baton Rouge

Saturday, 24 Jan 2015 12:42 PM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal continued to court Christian evangelicals for a possible presidential campaign with a headlining appearance at an all-day prayer rally.

Holding his Bible, Jindal opened Saturday's event — called "The Response" — by urging a spiritual revival to "begin right here, right here in our hearts."

While thousands of people sang and raised hands in prayer in the LSU basketball arena, hundreds protested outside.

Protesters say the event host, the American Family Association, promotes discrimination against people who are gay or of non-Christian faiths. They accuse Jindal of using the rally for political gain.

Jindal says the rally is a religious event, not a political one. But former Texas Gov. Rick Perry headlined a similar prayer event in 2011 only days before launching his White House bid.
