We love you and want your vote!

Conservative Christians, who vote in huge numbers for Republican candidates, sometimes feel ignored by the party they give so much love to. But Republican leaders of the House of Representatives aim to reward that adulation through a series of pro-family votes before the year ends.

With the prospects of a rather dismal 2006 election looming, cynics would say these leaders are just shoring up their base. No matter. Colorado Springs' own James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, lauded the congressional effort.

"The House leaders are to be commended for demonstrating their commitment to the issues American families hold dear: marriage, life and freedom of religion," Dobson said in a statement. "The announcement of the 'American Values Agenda' and its 10 priority bills signals that the GOP leadership in the House is in touch with the concerns of the values voters who sent them to Washington."
