Dobson Says Obama is Distorting the Bible.

Focus on the Family founder, and evanglical leader James Dobson said about Obama, "I think he's deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit his own worldview, his own confused theology." He also said Obama had, "A Fruitcake interpertation of the Constitution." This after a tape of Obama making a statement comparing parts of the Old Testament with the New Testament to the liberal Christian group Call to Renewal in June 2006 came to light today. "Dobson took aim at examples Obama cited in asking which Biblical passages should guide public policy — chapters like Leviticus, which Obama said suggests slavery is OK and eating shellfish is an abomination, or Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, which Obama said was, "a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application." Dobson said in response to the tape, "He is dragging biblical understanding through the gutter."

On a personal note I'd like to take this Opportunity to thank Obama for uniting the social conservative base of the party, something John McCain had failed to do until now. Everyone knows the Republican Party, like the U.S. Government, has three branches, fiscal conservatives, foreign policy conservatives, and social conservatives. We've always had the foreign policy conservatives with McCain. The fiscal conservatives were a little leary, but after seeing Obama's proposals they've come along. Now with this newest development I think we can expect the Social Conservatives to finally get behind McCain. Onward to November!


  1. Perhaps Dobson should take the Jesus Test at http://www.sentforlife.com/jesus.html .

    He will probably fail at it miserably.

  2. Obama's capacity for political dumbness just boggles the mind. Does his staff actually write this stuff for him?! Or does he go off script and say this stuff impromptu? Either way, it is a truly amazing phenomena. What will be even more astouding is if this guy gets elected. God forbid!

  3. Odd how apparently the only proper interpretations of the Bible are those that place it squarely among the political conservatives. I doubt anyone's done more than James Dobson to drag the Bible through the mud in his life.

    And if anyone thinks the Sermon on the Mount is anything other than a radical new way of looking at the world, then... I'm not sure they understand its content or context.
