The great Christian hymn "We Shall Overcome" is playing in the background as Christians file into the large conference hall. We are at the Washington Hilton awaiting the start of the Values Voter Summit.
This morning Bishop Harry Jackson spoke to a room full of folks as they enjoyed their breakfast. Bishop Jackson co-wrote a new book with Tony Perkins. Tony leads the Family Research Council.
Their book is entitled "Personal Faith Public Policy." I started reading it a little while ago. The book takes on some issues that aren't traditionally associated with the "religious right." I've gotten through the introduction. It is throught provoking.
