600x3879Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal recently penned a letter to 49 of his fellow U.S. governors, decrying societal issues like drugs, crime and pornography and inviting them to attend “The Response,” a religious rally that he’s headlining in Baton Rouge on Saturday. The event, described as “a call to prayer for a nation in crisis,” will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Louisiana State University and will rely on prayers and invocations to take aim at the “historic crisis” the nation faces in light of debt, terrorism, fatherlessness and other dire issues. Jindal, a Republican and a former Hindu who converted to Catholicism, described some of these societal plights in his letter, offering up a call for unity to his fellow governors. “We are faced with fatherless homes, an epidemic of drugs and crime, a saturation of pornography, an increase in the polarization, division, and hopelessness amongst many,” he wrote. “We need trust, respect and civility restored. Yet as I trust you would agree, there are limits to our own influence as governmental leaders.” More
