His own, personal Jesus

Rick believes that not just faith, but the public practice of it, as opposed
to the private expression of faith, is not just our right but also our duty
as Americans. He views faith as an integral part of freedom and virtue.

On Jan. 11 at the St. Paul Seminary in Crafton, Rick flatly stated that
faith is not meant to be kept private, but rather it should influence public
policy.1 Of course, on the issue of the death penalty, Rick is out of line
with his faith � but he claimed to be reconsidering or at least softening,
his support for the death penalty.
