Dobson Not In Gay Love With Thompson

jamesdobson2-1.jpg
Focus on the Family founder James Dobson made clear that he will not be supporting Republican Fred Thompson’s bid for the White House. It seems Thompson’s simply a little too gay friendly for old Jimmy’s taste.

The evangelical leader wrote in a “private” email:

Isn’t Thompson the candidate who is opposed to a Constitutional amendment to protect marriage, believes there should be 50 different definitions of marriage in the U.S., favors McCain-Feingold, won’t talk at all about what he believes, and can’t speak his way out of a paper bag on the campaign trail?

He has no passion, no zeal, and no apparent ‘want to.’ And yet he is apparently the Great Hope that burns in the breasts of many conservative Christians? Well, not for me, my brothers. Not for me!

That’s fine by us. The more division in the Republican ranks, the better.

Mike Huckabee must be thrilled.

      In our covert investigation conducted at Victory Christian Center (VCC) in Austin, TX, we collected mounting evidence of how the Republican political strategy is employed from the Bush/Rove White House on down to their base of conservative Evangelical churches.

      David Barton, Vice-chairman of the Texas GOP and founder of an organization called Wallbuilders, was invited to be the guest speaker at both of VCC’s Sunday morning worship services on August 20, 2006. According to Pastor Lee Boss’ introduction of David Barton to the congregation, he’s “been used by God to touch more elected officials in this nation over any other organization.” Armed with old-time bibles, a swanky PowerPoint presentation, and much jibber-jabber, Barton mobilizes the Evangelical Christians to the polls by replacing the word “voting” with “stewardship”. He concludes by telling us that Republican political candidates are the obvious choice in our stewardship if we are concerned with biblical issues.

      Karl Rove understands the conservative Evangelical voices are a powerful and very well organized tax exempt, money making machine for the Republican party. As long as these Evangelical church leaders have an insatiable appetite for power and influence, Rove will continue to use them to succeed on his mission of establishing a permanent Republican majority. Watch how all the Republican Presidential candidates are scrambling in a tizzy to court the Evangelical / Religious Right vote. It’s funny to see the conservatives salivating at the bit, waiting for the next self-righteous politician with the right outside package that they can rally behind. Ever notice how the GOP have to beat up on a minority group of people in order to rally their base? How Christian or Christ-like is that?
