Bobby Jindal: Parents were ‘very, very concerned’ by his conversion to Christianity

The Post caught up with him after his graduation address to ask how his parents, both Hindu, viewed his conversion; how he approached the controversy around gay marriage; and about his view of Pope Francis, who has criticized capitalism and called for an end to such culture wars.

Q. What was your parents reaction when you told them you were becoming a Christian?

A. “At first, they were very, very concerned. . . . I’m a parent and I put myself in their shoes: ‘Your teenage son comes home and says he is changing his religion. At first your reaction is — ‘Is this just a fad? Is he doing it for a girl? Will it wear off?’ Second, you wonder, ‘Is he joining a cult?’ Third you wonder, ‘Is he rejecting us?’ .
