Cuomo says pro-lifers not welcome in New York, Jindal invites them to Louisiana


Governor Bobby Jindal (pictured on the right) is letting pro-life New Yorkers know that they will feel right at home in his state of Louisiana.

“Hey displaced and persecuted New Yorkers… You can find refuge, loving people, and great food in Louisiana,” Gov. Jindal said on his Facebook wall.

Jindal’s offer comes in response to the radical remarks made by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo last Friday.

Sounding like a Soviet Commissar, Cuomo said that holding certain opinions means you should not live in the Empire State. 

“If they are extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York,” Cuomo said in a radio interview

The Buffalo News reports that Cuomo defined “extreme conservatism” as being “anti-gay” by opposing same-sex marriage, opposing legal abortion, and favoring legalization of assault weapons.

Cuomo claims to be Catholic despite his strident support for abortion and same-sex marriage. He remains a scandal to the Catholic faithful. His father Mario Cuomo served as Governor of New York from 1983-1994, but is better known in Catholic circles for promoting the canard of being ‘personally opposed’ to abortion but unable to ‘impose’ that ‘religious’ view on others. (I wrote about both Cuomo men here.)

Unlike Cuomo, Bobby Jindal is a Catholic politician we can proud of. He is pro-life, pro-marriage, and has been a strong advocate of school choice. Glad to see him respond to Cuomo’s nasty remarks with welcoming arms.

    Don you are wrong. Equating the two: abortion and the death penalty shows that you are willfully ignorant of Catholic teaching and morality. One is always wrong, the other is mostly, almost always wrong…but the innocent and the guilty are not equal in terms of culpability. They both are deserving of life but to equate them diminishes the grave travesty of abortion. We do not execute 4000 inmates a day.

    South Carolina is a great place to relocate to. We left NY 20 years ago to Serve in the Marines. The South is booming with Jobs, low taxes, and growth and idiots like Cuomo have driven the Great State of Ny Down the Drain. Upstate pays for the welfare of the City and over regulation has killed the great factories and industry NY once was known for. It’s not a politicians job to change or determine family decessions or values. America needs to snap back into the real world and realize we need to get our S#%t together and quickly. His Father was a great leader. Kudos Gov Thats why Population and Jobs are leaving faster than Traffic down I -95. No Growth, High Taxes, a culture of Welfare not Hard work. My Grandfather built bridges and the other built skyscrapers. For Generations NY has lead and now this is what we have. BS news blogs to get air time. Clinton and Cuomo. Now that’s a ticket to run! God Bless America, The Marines and those who defend the Constituiton from idiots foreign and especially Domestic.

    Cuomo is an elected governor for the ENTIRE population of NY. That is what a democracy entails. The fact that this man thinks he can verbally disenfranchise a whole segment of his constituency by telling their choices are nor welcomed is part and parcel of the leftist insanity from the Democratic party. The fact that as a Catholic he also dissents from Church teachings is even worse. But scandalous is the behavior of the NY bishops and the Cardinal who choose not to stand up for those teachings and they fail to fraternally correct a wayward Catholic. The voters in this country can deal with the political threat he is.

    I’m no fan of the death penalty, nor is the Church, but you cannot compare the “intrinsic evil” of aborting “innocent” human life to the prudential judgment of whether to execute convicted murderers. The Church herself imposed the death penalty in the past. See attached article by Fr. Rutler

    I am no longer a Catholic.. although I do like the Pope.. he finally has the church heading in the right direction.

  6. Mary Jo says:

    @Don: Actually, “scandal” is the proper term here. It refers to someone in a position of influence, such as a politician, who leads others astray from the true teachings of the Church by promoting alternative beliefs or heresies. It’s not meant to be mean; the author is just applying the appropriate title to the Governor.
