“He is the personification of humility and sincerity and authenticity,” added Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA), who was among those present for the presentation of the award.  “He clearly embodies the qualities of a Distinguished Christian Statesman. He has always fought for religious freedom issues, for the sanctity of life, and for the sanctity of marriage as ordained by God to be between a man and a woman. He is the ideal candidate for this year’s Distinguished Christian Statesman Award.”
