America's self-proclaimed values mavens will gather in D.C. this weekend for what they call the Values Voter Summit. Among the values-driven speakers will be Ann "Kill Jack Murtha" Coulter and Newt "The Sanctity of Three Marriages" Gingrich. No major Democrats will speak, and Zell Miller doesn't count.
But FaithfulDemocrats.com is there to tell you all about it all weekend, and you'll be able to join the conversation.
We have a blogger at the conference giving real-time coverage of what's happening inside. As many bloggers do, this person will blog under a pseudonym. This person will tell us who the participants are blasting, who they're ingratiating, and what heretical canards they're spinning when among friends. And we invite you to give your own comments and instant reaction to the news that will be breaking on our site.
In the meantime, here's a question for Huffington Post readers:
In the Bible, references to serving the needy appear about 2000 times. References to homosexual behavior are in the single digits and abortion is mentioned exactly zero times. Which verses do you think will be evoked more at the Values Voter Summit? We wait with bated breath.
Our blogger will end the suspense--telling us just how often these "values voters" bring up the biblical values of justice and the common good and how often they bring up divisive, wedge-issue politics.
Bottom line: there is far more to being a values voter than almost any speaker at the Values Voter Summit has ever recognized in a meaningful way. Where the hypocrisy rears its head, we will seek to expose it, and we welcome you to be part of it. Check it out.
