Just picture it: Two Baptist ministers, a rabbi, an evangelical preacher, a Mormon leader and a Presbyterian preacher — all sermonizing together, all with a resounding and united “amen.”
Like millions of Americans, I’ve become a “Duck Dynasty” fan. “Duck Dynasty,” as you surely are aware, is an A&E reality show that presents the Robertson clan, the long-bearded owners and operators of Duck Commander in West Monroe, La. Duck Commander hand-makes duck calls.
Prominent spiritual leaders from across the country and from many denominational backgrounds will come together in an evening designed to create common ground and to inspire attendees to take a stand for religious freedom.

Americans believe in science. Generally, most of us have faith in medicine. A majority of Americans, though ever-thinning, tell pollsters they’re religious and yet we’ve reached virtual consensus about going to the hospital when we’re sick. We are, in some cases, obligated by law to seek medical care. Courts have found the denial of medical care to children, when it results in their death, to be a crime. In the eyes of the law, science trumps religious fervor.
1. Yuma Catholic — Perennial power has several key pieces back from last year’s semifinal team, including QB Jagan Cleary (2,244 yards, 29 TD, 7 INT), WR Donovan Rooks (755 rec. yards, 12 TD) and DL Marco Pericone (70 tackles, 10.5 sacks). Must replace star RB Kody Hazlett (2,577 yards, 33 TD), but still an easy call as preseason No. 1.
2. Northwest Christian — Defending champions lose most of their firepower, notably QB Kyle Shipp (1,978 yards, 25 TD, 5 INT) and RB Hunter McShanag (1,460 yards, 21 TD) but always have talent waiting in the wings. Matt Delos (115 tackles, 5 sacks) and rest of defense may have to lead way until offense gets up to speed.
3. Tempe Prep — Knights have quickly turned into small-school power after semifinal appearance a season ago. Ryan Whalen (86 tackles) leads tough defense. Offense needs to find replacements for QB Forest Redlin and RB Levi Hartzler.
4. Morenci — State runners-up were a great story last year and have right players back to make another run. QB Emilio Duran will need to pick up slack because team loses much of vaunted rushing attack.
5. Thatcher — Defense should be calling card for 2013 as Heath Motes (34 tackles, 3 INT) and Kaiden Morris (58 tackles) lead unit. Thatcher went 10-2 a season ago but will need to find replacements for QB Presley Motes (2,064 yards, 24 TD, 7 INT) and WR Jacob Drage (1,160 yards, 16 TD) to have similar success.
Outlook: The 2012 football season was decidedly not Saguaro-esque. The Sabercats were defeated in three regular season games and barely avoided losing a fourth.

I feel deep empathy for our elected leaders in Congress as they navigate the contentious issue of immigration, and I respect the courage Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake have demonstrated as they as they have attempted to find solutions on this difficult issue.
The Founding Fathers' core vision for America was that God sets men free — it’s their natural right to have liberty and each is made to rule on the principles of Christianity and respectful of the Judeo-Christian roots. Its influence is all over the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, which was the mission statement and was approved by the Continental Congress.
