Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal stepped up his attacks against Donald Trump Friday by warning social conservatives that the New York billionaire is not as bound to the Christian faith as he would like them to believe.

“He hasn’t read the Bible,” Mr. Jindal quipped at the annual Values Voter Summit in D.C., hosted by the Family Research Council. “You know that he has not read the Bible because his name is not in the Bible.”

He continued, “The is not about Donald Trump, this is about returning to our conservative principles.”

Mr. Jindal is among the eight Republican candidates scheduled to speak at the three-day event, which also features a straw poll that helps take the temperature of social conservatives.

Mr. Jindal has struggled to breakthrough in national polls and as a result has missed the cut for the GOP’s first two prime time debates.

He recently started aiming his fire at Mr. Trump, calling on conservatives to recognize that he is an entertainer, not a true conservative.
