Jindal Wins Louisiana Governor's Race

Only after years of open feuding did my parents realize my new faith had not caused me to reject them or my heritage.” Bobby Jindal’s letter to Sikh friend. Concerned about his Sikh friend Manu (not his real name), who was struggling between his girlfriend, her religion, and his heritage, Bobby Jindal provided a candid version of his own struggles – in the form of a personal letter. That letter, made public in the national Catholic weekly ‘America,’ formed the basis for Jindal’s 1994 article entitled “Choosing Between Church And Family: The Spiritual Journey of Converts.” Noting that he found his friend’s situation "peculiarly similar" to his own, Jindal wrote: "Though I obviously do not have all the answers, I have experienced much of this same dilemma." Essentially the letter reveals that Jindal longed for a reconciliation between his faith and his parents, but not at the expense of his integrity or honesty. He acknowledges: “My parents are still troubled by my decision and would give anything for my conversion to Hinduism.”But, as Jindal explains in his letter: “I approached them with questions about Hinduism while I was investigating religions; however, they paid little attention to my curiosity. I turned elsewhere, seeking friends, books and clergy of various faiths for guidance and answers. By the time I had investigated and accepted Christianity, I was no longer approaching my parents with Not yet out of High School, Jindal acknowledges that it was "a time of constant prayer and struggle" as he anticipated the ultimate confrontation with his parents. It came, rather unexpectedly, when he was recovering from a serious car accident and his mother wanted to know "which God” he had thanked for his safety. my questions and concerns about religion." Meanwhile, says Jindal: “My parents continued trying to convince me to return to Hinduism, through intellectual and emotional appeals. They pleaded with me to delay baptism, in case I had a change of heart.” He confides to Manu thus: “It has taken years for my parents to acknowledge my Christian Catholic faith, and this has come very reluctantly.” There was another issue that erupted within the Jindal family. “ My parents requested that I never mention my faith to my brother or try to evangelize others. I replied that I could not promise such things, but would voluntarily refrain from such activities for now to please them. I also noted that I would never lie to my brother if directly asked about my Christian faith. I reserved the right to answer question and assist those already seeking Christianity. My parents were concerned that my zeal would lead me to force them, my brother and others to accept my newfound faith. They did not want other parents to experience their pain and were afraid of losing their other son. Though I refused to violate certain principles {I was ready to move out rather than reject my Christian faith, and I insisted on a firm deadline for my baptism}, my flexibility on certain other issues convinced my parents that I truly cared for them and was trying to compromise without sacrificing my integrity.” As he explains, “It was crucial that I attempted to please my parents in every possible way during this difficult time. I tried very hard to differentiate my religious beliefs from a general act of rebellion. One indirect consequence was that I ended a high school relationship, involving the very girl who introduced me to the love in Christianity. That relationship had meant a lot to me.” http://www.indolin k.com/displayArtic leS.php?id=0219051 23030  (Oct 23, 2007 | post #319)
