Louisiana Gov. Jindal really presses that separation of Church and State thing

Yesterday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) appeared at the First Baptist Church of West Monroe to sign HB 636, a measure that “requires women to be informed of their specific legal rights and options before they undergo an abortion procedure.”

Louisiana Gov. Signs Anti-Choice Bill, Likens Women who Receive Abortions to Criminals | Truthout.

The article makes mention that Jindal compared women who received abortion to criminals. I’m not sure that was the actual intent, as it seems to me that he is was meaning and clearly stating that if criminals get basic information, then so should women – by law. But that is not the point of my post.

My post is on the notion of signing legislative bills at a place of worship.

Isn’t that pushing it just a little bit?

  1. I’mreminded of a line from the HBO series “Rome”, when there is debate on how to handle a Senate procedural problem:

    “This is a religious matter.”

    Or words to that effect.

    Mankind has so seldom practiced separation of church and state, they’re not very good at it yet.
