OP:ED - Dobson vs. Obama; It's About Time

When it comes to Conservative Christians, it's about time that someone on a national level speaks up with our views. He new media has been pounding this issue, but it seems that McCain would just as soon the Christian voters would go away - like we are a risk factor for him.

That said, whether you like or want our vote, and even more important for our side even if we have to hold our nose, ignore the "none of the above" option, and bite on a lemon while pulling the McCain lever, then this Conservative Christian is going to do all of the above (well, maybe I won't bring the lemon with me).

The reason for this you may ask. Why would you vote for someone you don't like or someone who doesn't seem to want your vote? It's the only choice we have, and because McCain has it right on the GWOT.

Not a very flattering endorsement there CP. Well, if I'm nothing else, I am honest. I said long ago that I would back McCain and I would cease on harping on his negatives. I believe I am holding true to that promise. Here, I'm just mentioning what I see as recent developments and the facts as I see them.

Now on to the article below. Obama is "USING" Christians! From Jeremiah Wright to his support of partial-birth abortion and his ties to the Muslim religion, I can't find much that suggests that Obama is promoting much of anything we Christians hold dear.

Thank you Dr. Dobson for standing up for what many of us have been saying for months!

Dobson and Obama

Dr. James Dobson has taken Senator Barack Obama to task, accusing the presidential candidate of abusing the Word of God -- and the senator has responded, accusing the evangelical leader of "making stuff up."

Dobson broadcast:
Obama 'dragging biblical understanding through gutter' ... On Tuesday morning, James Dobson of Focus on the Family went on the attack against Barack Obama, accusing him of abusing the Word of God ...

Obama, supporters attack Dobson ... Barack Obama said later on Tuesday that evangelical leader James Dobson was "making stuff up" when he accused the presumed Democratic presidential nominee of distorting the Bible ...

Related: Obama's petition to Catholics, Evangelicals ... Political scientist and presidential historian Paul Kengor says Barack Obama's aggressive effort to reach out to centrist Evangelicals and Catholics is an appeal to social justice activists like Jim Wallis and Tony Campolo ...

The above links provided by OneNewsNow.com take a good look at the issue, the rebuttal and a related story.

Like us or hate us, Christian Conservatives make up a huge voter block, and I think Dobson has done more to help McCain against Obama with Conservative Christians than anything that McCain has done to this point.
