Hi Darla!When young corporate Republican Bobby Jindal was sworn in as Louisiana’s governor five months ago, the national press noted that he was the child of Punjabi Indians who had just moved to America, and that he was young for a governor (36). All very interesting, blah blah, but did you know he’s a wacky Extremist Catholic (like Mel Gibson!) who performs exorcisms on people to rid them of The Demons From Hell?

Jindal’s family is Hindu, as you might expect, but Bobby — who took his pretend American name from the extremist sitcom character “Bobby Brady” — turned to strange Louisiana beliefs in high school and became a Weird Catholic who questions whether Protestants truly worship Jesus.

Better yet, Bobby is like a 36-year-old nerd version of the spooky movie priests in The Exorcist.

In a freakish essay he wrote for the “red meat of Catholicism” journal called New Oxford Review in 1994, Jindal writes about some gal he was kind of half-dating, but he wouldn’t have sex with her because he is a Christian Nut, but he insists on dating her because these dudes are all about self-torture and ruining the University Experience (of having lots of sex) and making women uncomfortable, and she finally freaks out and stomps out during their date at some concert — Christian a cappella, of course (no demon African drums) — and he chases after her and she’s crying so OBVIOUSLY SHE HAS BEEN POSSESSED BY A DEMON, FROM HELL.

So then Bobby and his dingbat “Campus Crusade For Christ” loser friends decided they would have an Exorcism and started chanting and waving crucifixes over her and screaming about Mother Mary and all ganged up on her and wouldn’t let her leave and the gal freaked out, the end.

Bobby Jindal is going to be an awesome pretend vice president for John McCain. Maybe Bobby will even get the demons out of Cindy, wink wink.

    Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with McCain. We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar. McCain is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological, Obama, and powerful. So don’t listen to him. Remember that – do not listen.

    Well, what else could poor Bobby do? I mean, Miss Jones, the chick in question, wanted to have teh segks with him, which meant that she was evil and needed cleansing.

    Besides, he was listening to a lot of Crue back in the day, and they instructed him to “Shout At The Debbil.” Not “With The Debbil,” as Nikki Sixx always points out, but “At The Debbil.”

    The Debbil in Miss Jones made him do it.

    Interestingly, Mr. Jindal explains that one of the reasons he considered conversion was due to the simple “compassion” of a young girl who dreamt of being appointed to the United States Supreme Court so that she could overturn Roe v. Wade. From an early age, Mr. Jindal was impressed by this young Christian’s political aspiration

  • Q2

    …he wouldn’t have sex with her because he is a Christian Nut…but he did let it blow him…and that’s why — to this day — Bobby Jindal has no balls. More than once “No-Balls Jindal” has echoed in the showers of Bobby’s local racquet club.

    A woman named “Louise,” who Bobby says was “a member of a charismatic church,” pinned Susan down and prayed loudly and desperately. They yelled things like, “Satan, I command you to leave this woman” and commanded “(all) demons to leave in the name of Christ.” Susan continued shouting. Bobby tried to remain calm, though at one point, he thought he could be having a stroke. Bobby considered calling the campus priest, but he also thought that Catholicism could actually be bogus.

    Susan attempted to escape, and during the scuffle, “Alice,” the student leader for Campus Crusade for Christ, “entered the room for the first time, brandishing a crucifix.” They had tried calling a “rival” Christian group to help, but the preacher “denied” their request for help and told them to not to “confront the demon.” Alice made Susan even angrier. Susan tried lunging toward the door.

    They all began daring Susan to read passages from the Bible. She would begin to read a passage and then blurt out obscenities. But after reading several passages, Susan changed, almost in an instant. She proclaimed, “Jesus is Lord,” and then told everyone she could not remember “any of the past few hours.”

    …which is probably what I would say if I wanted a bunch of kidnappers to let me go instead of dropping my body into the bayou.

  • The Real JR Revisted

    Okay, I’m actually going to decipher this batshit story.

    The beginning is just as Ken laid it out:
    Susan and Bobby were very close friends. Some people even thought the two were an item, but they never were.
    Yes, Ken. No sex. Really boring relationship.

    One day, Susan and Bobby attended a Christian concert, and in the middle of the show, Susan got up and left.
    SO he evidently did something stupid here or she was sick of being bombarded with all this pure, Christian mess. So she boated. We’ve all done this.

    Bobby knew something was wrong. He followed her outside,
    Ok, that’s a psycho move on his part. The chick just up and left you. You follow her outside? She wants to be alone or at least away from you, dude.

    and she was sobbing.
    I’m telling you, he did or said something effed up.

    Bobby tried to console her. A female friend showed up and gave Susan a hug.
    Translation: Lesbian. She was experiementing and was totally all about it.

    Bobby knew the problem would not go away with a hug
    Translation: He doesn’t believe in Lesbians. She’s obviously really sick or something.

    Susan confessed why she was upset. She said she had cancer. Skin cancer.
    Which is his reasoning for why she likes vagina. She must have cancer or something. Really sick. That and her skin is now sullied with the touch of vagina. Which is how he feels when he thinks of vagina. It’s dirty.

    The next time they were supposed to meet for dinner, Susan was late. She refused to apologize, so Bobby refused to speak with her for a week.
    Okay, WTF?! Your friend says she has cancer and you refused to speak with her for a week cause you didn’t meet up at the Quad like you planned? Something sounds insane here.

    But they quickly resolved everything when Susan opened up about her nightmares and the strange, unknown odors emanating from her dorm room.
    The odor is sex. He smelled sex wafting from her dorm room cause she was getting it on with her girlfriend and perhaps even her teacher at the same time.

    Bobby attributed the odor to the devil, because it smelled like sulfur.
    Of course he did. How is he to know different?

    When Susan was telling Bobby this, he excused himself and left the room. Then, he made the sign of the cross and prayed to God for help. When he walked back into the room, Susan “angrily lashed out” at Bobby, and he thought, “Gee. Thanks God. So much for prayer.”
    This is how he’s recounting his asshole move of getting up and walking away from her in a middle of a conversation, walking into the coat closet and then loudly proclaiming, “Lord God. Please make this heathenous woman admit her slutty, impure ways. Make her worthy again. Stop her from being such a whorey bitch.” And then walking back out into the room like he didn’t just do all that. Of course she was ready to kick his ass.

    Bobby and his friends in the University Christian Fellowship club (UCF) organized a prayer meeting for Susan later that evening.
    Translation: Conspired with the guys to jump her. Now he needs to lure her in.

    Bobby asked Susan if she wanted him to attend the meeting. At first she said no, but she quickly changed her mind.
    Translation: He fucking threw her in a burlap sack or something.

    Seriously, this is a scary story.

    Suddenly, right after a group prayer, Susan “emitted some strange guttural sounds.”
    Which means she started reacting badly to the cloroform they threw over her face while they drove her to the “meeting” place with her riding in the trunk.

    Susan’s sister told everyone to place their hands on Susan’s body. Bobby “refused” and “froze in horror.”
    Because touching women is dirty.

    She yelled, “Bobby, you cannot even love Susan.”
    Because she felt he was a dick.

    Susan began insulting every person in the room, revealing private information and embarrassing secrets.
    Meaning she did call him a dick and started telling everyone about how he wouldn’t put out and then acted like she was a bitch for not wanting to respect his purity.

    Susan attempted to escape, and during the scuffle,

    okay, i had to stop. this is sick and stupid.

  • Redhead

    In the article, he links the poor girl’s having had cancer to being possessed by a demon and says that the exorcism cured her.

    This is just…. no words. Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Oh, GOP, PLEASE put this guy on McCain’s ticket. That is just TOO easy a target. I can see it now – universal health care schmealth care. Jindal will just give exorcisms to all.

    McCain knows that the Catholic Church is the Great Whore, so he would never pick Jindal, and Jindal knows that McCain is an apostate, so he will never agree to serve under him. These two value their religion too much to put up with each others.

  • m_supercomputer

    Dude, he’s not even just Catholic – he’s some kind of extra-crazy sub-group. I mean, we’re a strange religion and all, but I’m pretty sure exorcisms aren’t seen as something just anyone can do. If you even believe in exorcisms as a literal thing, which is pretty rare now, it’s gotta be done by a priest. Which means at least that some random douchebag can’t just decide his ex-girlfriend’s possessed, round up his buddies and do the exorcism themselves. Ick.

  • Redhead

    [re=14815]Imagine42[/re]: Uhhh… by magical talking system do you mean me asking you for a copy? lol. (And what form is it in- .pdf or is it an actual document? As in, could you just copy and paste the whole thin here?)

  • Tra


    Yeah, as a former Catholic I know it was really considered a fringe, kind of embarrassing thing and is only permitted rarely, under very specific circumstances, and could only be performed by a few select Vatican people with high-ranking approval. It’s not like every parish has an exorcist or something. This guy’s a complete freakshow.

  • Gopherit v2.0

Yeah, they went to Mass a lot, but they were mainline, moderate Catholics, with no evangelizing, and I spent a Spring Break with them doing service that was in no way religious.

    Probably the biggest campus nutjob group for us were the Naderite PIRG people. If it’s revealed that Barry was involved with that in Columbia, I’ll have to change my vote.

  • Mr-Clark

    Ken Layne,

    What a waste of an education. He should have at least had the decency to wake up in a pool of his own vomit. I guess the best test to see if he is an exorcist is for him to throw a little holy water on Cindy and see what happens. Is he married? I’d hate to think that there is a virgin Governor running amok in Louisiana at 36-years-old. I’ve based almost everything I’ve ever done on sex and that’s why I don’t have time to run for political office, worship Jesus all day, or even entertain the idea of running with Midge. (I loved your pun about Midge’s “shortlist.”)

    It sounds like a good match though…Midge being from Biblical Times and all.

    Sincerely and respectfully,

    Mr. Clark

    Reminds me of the UCLA dorms when four vocal Christians held an exorcism on my doorstep for over two hours.

    We all lived on the sixth floor. I chose (and got!!) room #666. Just so you have a mental picture of what kind of undergrad I was (goth/post-punkish, not heavy metal-ish, I hasten to add).
    So finals were rolling around. They stayed up over 30 hours in their study group, still couldn’t get it done. They lived in a cluster at the far end of the dorms (the furthest they could get from #666. Well, and me). They’re high-strung, sheltered personalities to begin with, now sleep-deprived, wacked from coffee, No Doz and Coke, with mounting desperation and looming finals.

    One of them said he had a “burning feeling on the inside of his eyeballs, a pressure of something trying to get out.” The others quickly concurred. So they did what any reasonable group would.

    They figured that Satan was there. Ruining their studying. There in the dorms. On their floor. On my door. Embedded in the “666” numbers. So they exorcized my. Door. For two hours, chanting, praying, candles, flicking bathroom sink water on my door with their fingers, Bible-reading. Four of them. Genuinely exorcizing Satan from my door.
    I had to call the RA after that. Not out of fear, but to end the party in my room that these Exorcisers started. Everyone heard them (of course) and after gawking at them would squeeze in my room where we’d laugh in disbelief. Then drink and smoke like salmon, fifteen of us in a two-person room.
    The RA tried defending tolerance of their beliefs, saying I wasn’t being respectful. I screamed, “For the last two hours, they’ve trying to exorcise Beelzebub from my door! During Finals Week. No one should “tolerate” that. Get DOWN here!” So begrudgedly, he shoed them away. After another half-hour. He came in laughing later, saying it was too good for him to break up too soon. Sigh.

    The weird thing is, they never admitted they had some weird psychotic, stress-induced, cabin-fever, over-caffeinated breakdown. They were convinced they rid my door of Satan. Sigh – thus my introduction to Orange County people.

    I blame the A- I got in Behavioral Psychology on Jesus. The bast*rd.
