It’s an attack ad on Bobby Jindal, the Republican frontrunner for the office of governor in Louisiana, by the Democratic Party. It’s total bullshit. The article in question (available here for $1.50) is little more than Catholic Apology 101. The source of the cherry-picked phrases in an appropriate colour:
Sincerely motivated Christians studying the same texts have disagreed on the fundamentals of the faith, thereby dividing not only Protestants from Catholics, but also particular Protestant denominations from each other. Post-Reformation history does not reflect the unity and harmony of the “one flock” instituted by Christ (Jn. 10:16; see also Jn. 17:11, 17:21-23; Acts 4:32; Eph. 4:3-6, 4:13; Rom. 12:5, 16:17-18; 1 Cor. 1:10-11, 3:4, 12:12-13; Phil. 1:27, 2:2), but rather a scandalous series of divisions and new denominations, including some that can hardly be called Christian. Yet Christ would not have demanded unity without providing the necessary leadership to maintain it. The same Catholic Church which infallibly determined the canon of the Bible must be trusted to interpret her handiwork; the alternative is to trust individual Christians, burdened with, as Calvin termed it, their “utterly depraved” minds, to overcome their tendency to rationalize, their selfish desires, and other effects of original sin. The choice is between Catholicism’s authoritative Magisterium and subjective interpretation which leads to anarchy and heresy.
I have to agree with Jindal on this. His essay was distorted and distorted for the most despicable reason – bigotry. The south has a lot of problems. Hatred of religious minorities is one of them. Guess who’s the majority in the South? Protestants. The Democratic party ought to be ashamed of themselves.
