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.
