Dobson threatens violence against senators

James C. Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and one of the nation's most influential evangelical leaders, is threatening to put six Democratic senators "in the 'bull's-eye'" if they block conservative appointments to the Supreme Court. In a letter sent to more than a million of his supporters, Dobson promised "a battle of enormous proportions from sea to shining sea" if Democrats filibuster to block conservative nominees.

We agree with Ralph Neas, president of the liberal group People for the American Way, who said, "Mr. Dobson's arrogance knows no limits. This is the kind of tactic that ultimately backfires. These senators have served their constituents well and have courageously voted their consciences. I don't think they will take kindly to threats from Mr. Dobson, and I don't think the voters will either."

Yeah, and what was it the Bible said about pride, Mr. Dobson?
