The third-floor scene in the Capitol was truly touching. Quietly, as privately as possible, Gov. Sam Brownback clasped hands in prayer with Don Wistuba, the longtime operator of the Statehouse snack shop. It was Don’s birthday, and the gesture was profound.
Brownback is a believer. All observations and his own words indicate that the governor has meditated long and hard about religious beliefs in migrating to his Catholic faith.
The key word is “faith.”
