Today, Mike Huckabee was the speaker. He was GREAT! I took a picture with my phone and I am going to see if I can add it to this post eventually. Hearing him in person, and his dedication to the cause for Life only made me like him more as a Presidential Candidate. It is a core issue for me, probably more than homeschooling, dare I say it (and Huckabee has gotten a bum rap on that score if one even bothers to check it out). So, after hearing him talk about his devotion to the Culture of Life (and when people use JPII's words I instantly warm to them) and then thanked Catholics first, for being the ones to really oppose abortion from the beginning (even before the Evangelicals ...so said he) I couldn't help but like him more. I was a Baptist for 2 years (most Protestants try out lots of different Denominations) and they are NOT fond of Catholics, so I liked that Huckabee gave us props. (Though he doesn't strike me as an anti-Catholic Baptist at all...and I know not all Baptists are...so if you are one don't get mad).
Anyway, I know as the days pan out it's looking less like Huckabee has shot at the nomination. But I will be pulling (and praying) for him until the end. He's got an important message. I think people need to hear it. He doesn't hide who he is. He wears his beliefs on his sleeve, and his faith informs his politics not the other way around as with other politicians. He is a man I can stand with. I am happy I got to see and hear him in person. He was very well received by my fellow Georgians, and even the Georgia Right To Life endorsed him as their candidate of choice because of his unwaivering stand for Life.
The walk was solemn and God held the rain until we were done (which was nice coz it was 33 degrees).
See what Georgia is doing to defeat Roe v Wade.
