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.

Huckabee a Fave Among Value Voters

It's only 2009, but Mike Huckabee is the clear frontrunner among Value Voters.

At the Values Voter Summit in Washington this weekend, Huckabee easily won the Presidential straw poll taken Saturday with nearly 29 percent of the vote.

Romney, Pawlenty, Palin and Pence each won roughly 12 percent of the 597 votes cast.

Romney polled ahead of Palin and Jindal? Wow. At least a few of these values voters are chasing a perceived winner.
