Where I think Jindal misses the mark is saying that if you believe in tolerance, respect, and equal rights for gay and lesbian folks, you are somehow part of the "radical left". I am about as radical as a cup of coffee and I see these religious freedom laws as completely unnecessary.

I also think it's funny that the same people who claim to champion capitalism and free enterprise, think that corporations like Wal-Mart, Amazon, Angie's List, and Microsoft should keep quiet when it comes to cultural or social issues.

Exactly. I don't agree with Jindal's argument. But what I find repugnant is how he resorts to labels, and loaded terms to generalize and discredit people who disagree with him. It really is rather disgraceful.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
