COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – In a soon-to-be-aired episode of his non-profit, tax-exempt radio program “Focus on the Family,” Dr. James Dobson accuses Barack Obama of pandering to the “lowest common demoninator of morality” with his “fruitcake interpretation” of the U.S. Constitution and distortion of the Bible.
“Am I required in a democracy to conform my efforts in the political arena to his bloody notion of what is right with regard to the lives of tiny babies?” Dobson said. “What he’s trying to say here is unless everybody agrees, we have no right to fight for what we believe.”
Focus on the Family has invited both Obama and McCain to visit their campus in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Obama apparently has not responded, and Dobson declined a meeting with McCain in Denver because Dobson wanted to bring McCain down to the FOTF campus so he could have a better idea of what their ministry is all about.
It is hard to guess whom Dobson is going to vote for, since he has said he could not in good conscience vote for McCain and associates Obama’s legal theory with a sugary Christmas confection.
This is not to say that Focus on the Family does not have some excellent resources for helping families and promoting good values in general, but sometimes it crosses a fine line.
