Americans United (AU) for Separation of Church and State criticized Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal Dec. 18 for using his official letterhead to invite residents to an evangelical prayer rally. “These are historic and defining times, a new world order of chaos is being driven by militant Islam seeking to impose Sharia Law worldwide,” Jindal said in an open invitation to the “The Response-Louisiana: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis,” driving home the need for spiritual transformation as a country. The Washington-based religious-liberty watchdog said Jindal’s invitation letter “makes a mockery” of his oath to uphold the Constitution. “Gov. Jindal, you were elected to represent all of your constituents, not just the Christians,” read the letter signed by AU Legal Director Ayesha Khan and Staff Attorney Ian Smith. “Your proselytizing letter under the seal of your office and the State of Louisiana represents a flagrant disregard for large portions of your constituency and of the requirements of the Constitution of the United States.”
