It is my absolute pleasure to introduce my little family to you. I will use made-up names to provide us with a little privacy. My husband is a suit-and-tie, got-a-meeting, highly-educated kind of man. He is also a dependable, family-first kind of man. I will call him Obadiah and I am Agnes. These are old-fashioned names which suit us since we are a quirky mix of old-fashioned traditions and modern, Liberal values. Our eight-year-old daughter is Sprite: high-energy, expressive, up-late-at-night inventing contraptions and crafty projects. She is naturally spiritual. She prays spontaneously and occasionally reads the Bible voluntarily. She is generous and kind. We call our ten-year-old son Little Scout because scouting is an important part of our family tradition and he spends a lot of time cub scouting. Although he is ten, he is small and very innocent for his age. He loves the simple and straight-forward things that most boys like: auto-racing and video games. He is gentle to all God’s creatures and demonstrates a natural inclination to nurture. We live busy lives, but we stick together. We pray, read the Bible, attend church and work at being good to others. Essentially, we are a Christian family. But what surprises those who care to notice is that our values are politically and socially Liberal.
