View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Lay off the President!

I'm a critic of some of President Obama's policies, especially when it comes to abortion. But his family and personal life are off limits.

Apparently some opponents of health care reform don't feel so limited.

Conservatives for Patients Rights is apparently ready to release some ads criticizing President Obama's family vacation on Martha's Vineyard. According to a report on ABC News, they apparently feel he should just keep on working while health care is being debated.

I think they are being ridiculous. Give the guy and his family a break. You undermine your credibility when you do stuff like this.

I hope he and his family have a good time. I hope he gets some rest.

Besides, with a little distance, maybe the President will get a chance to think about what he is doing.
