Meet Bobby Jindal’s Prayer Partners

As Bobby Jindal prepares to host The Response, a mirror event to Rick Perry’s The Call prayer rally, Right Wing Watch takes a look at some of the people who will be involved in that rally with him. It’s pretty much a Who’s Who of bizarre Christian right extremism.

The latter half of Rick Perry’s “The Response” prayer rally was emceed by a self-proclaimed prophet who believes Oprah Winfrey is the harbinger of the Antichrist.

It looks like Jindal’s rally will be no different: Doug Stringer, who considers himself to be a modern-day apostle and who also worked on Perry’s rally, is spearheading the Louisiana event. Stringer has blamed American “[l]icentiousness or moral looseness to the degree that it is ‘in your face,’ including homosexuality,” for the September 11, 2001 attacks, which he described as a “wake-up call” from God.

Another self-proclaimed prophet, Cindy Jacobs, is also featured on “The Response: Baton Rouge” website. Jacobs has quite the prophetic record. She:

  • suggested that legal victories for marriage equality advocates led to Hurricane Sandy and other natural disasters;
  • proclaimed that Rick Perry’s “The Response” prayer rally “broke the curses on the land” of Texas brought on by “the Native American people [who] were cannibals and they ate people”;

The good news is that Cindy Jacobs can feed everyone at the rally from her bottomless bowl of spaghetti.

One event sponsor, Jennifer LeClaire, has used her column in Charisma News to broadcast several “prophetic” warnings about the evils of homosexuality and the “gay agenda” that is “working overtime to send millions to hell.” LeClaire has:

  • and claimed that gay people are possessed by a demonic “spirit of immorality” that “often enters in through some sort of abuse and the lies of the enemy [Satan] that follow.”…

Another official “Response” endorser, longtime conservative activist and failed Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia E.W. Jackson, has pushed similarly radical views, particularly on gay rights, saying that “homosexuality is a horrible sin, it poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies; it brings the judgment of God unlike very few things that we can think of.” He has also:

  • said of gay people: “Their minds are perverted, they’re frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally”;
  • warned that homosexuality will bring about a “torrent of wickedness,” including human-animal marriages;

Hey, wasn’t Bobby Jindal the guy who said a couple years ago that the Republicans have to stop being the “stupid party”? Of course, he’s now planning to run for president and you can’t win that nomination without lots and lots of stupid people.

    Bobby Jindal’s Prayer Partners

    Dibs on Saturday morning cartoon!

    The really cool part of the event is when all of these people get out of that tiny car.

    wreck “The really cool part of the event is when all of these people get out of that tiny car.”

    Actually, they each drive their own SUV, complain about the traffic, demand road expansion, veto a plan to issue bonds to pay for it, demand road expansion, pawn it off on a Public-Private Partnership which builds a toll road that goes under after three years and passes its debt to taxpayers, then complain that government can’t do anything right.

    “Bobby Jindal’s Prayer Partners”

    Just remember: when you pray with someone, you are also praying with everyone THEY have ever prayed with, too! Use protection: Use Trojan Bible Covers in your prayer session (whether 1-on-1 or in groups)

    Gee, Bobby Jindal, graduate of Brown, Un. with a major in biology who denies evolution and E. W. Jackson, graduate of Harvard Law School. Nice to know that the Ivies also produce fucktards.

  • Trebuchet

    Most of those clowns probably don’t even consider Jindal to be a Christian, what with him being a papist and all that.

    It’s pretty much a Who’s Who of bizarre Christian right extremism.

    Oh now, this is so unfair. Sure, they’ve all said extremist, whack-a-loon stuff which defies all rational intelligence and human decency – but they’ve also surely said some fine, reasonable, acceptable things.

    I’ve heard that Doug Stringer knows where the best area fishing holes are, and Cindy Jacobs once stated “Thanks for coming, I’m so glad to see you” — and you sure can’t get much more gracious than that. Jennifer LeClaire is reputed to make a mean potato salad; I’ll bet she’d be happy to give anyone the recipe, all you need is ask. And E.W. Jackson? “Excuse me, sir, do you know where the Men’s Room is?” “It’s down the hall and to your left.” Can’t ask for a better, wiser, more in- tune- with reality response.

    Really, it’s almost like you’re going out of your way to cherry-pick the worst quotes!

  • busterggi

    And what makes you think Jindal doesn’t consider his fellow theofascists to be smart?

    “bottomless bowl of spaghetti.” – do you know how many gold pieces this artifact is worth in D&D?

    “the Native American people [who] were cannibals and they ate people”

    As opposed to cannibals who don’t eat people?

  • Al Dente

    I’m glad to see Sastra sticking up for for the whack-a-loons. All too often we forget the good that whack-a-loons do in the world. Give me a day or three and I can come up with some examples.

    Yes. Vegetarian Cannibals*.


    * I’d call “Dibs on band name!”, as I do on occasion, but It’s already taken.

  • caseloweraz

    Why does Jindal need prayer partners? Is his faith not strong enough?

    Or is there some special expertise involved (like anal-nathrac-uklas-bethud…)?

    “the Native American people [who] were cannibals and they ate people”

    I hear they were anthropophagous, as well.

    Lady Mondegreen (aka Stacy) “I hear they were anthropophagous, as well.”

    They were Big Bird’s friend?

  • StevoR

    Are the Phelps clan invited along to be Jindal prayer partners too? I mean with some of those comments from some of other comrades in prayer there, they’d hardly stand out that much and seem to share a lot of common views!

    Hey, wasn’t Bobby Jindal the guy who said a couple years ago that the Republicans have to stop being the “stupid party”?

    Guess he figured he couldn’t beat ’em so he might as well join them instead maybe?

    “Why does Jindal need prayer partners? Is his faith not strong enough?”

    And doesn’t it make the closet they pray in quite crowed? Maybe when they go to the closet to pray, they have one of those really big closets, the kind that wealthy people have. More like a room than a closet. Big mirrors, room for hundreds of pairs of shoes, the auto shoe buffer, a steam presser for last minute touch ups and maybe even a little wet bar.

    Who wants to get together a bunch of LGBT and allies in order to dress as a bunch of clowns in order to protest – at least one needs to dress as the FSM handing out bottomless bowls of spaghetti.
