Fair warning from James Dobson
In an op-ed in today's NY Times, James Dobson, chairman of Focus on the Family, wrote:
I firmly believe that the selection of a president should begin with a recommitment to traditional moral values and beliefs. Those include the sanctity of human life, the institution of marriage, and other inviolable pro-family principles.
The secular news media has been reporting in recent months that the conservative Christian movement is hopelessly fractured and internally antagonistic. That is not true.
If the major political parties decide to abandon conservative principles, the cohesion of pro-family advocates will be all too apparent in 2008."
So it's a good thing John McCain has been showing evidence of a "recommitment to traditional moral values and beliefs," because we tremble at the thought of James Dobson and his minions being in our face any more than they already are.
Dobson, by the way, is also the author of Bringing Up Boys: Practical Advice and Encouragement for Those Shaping the Next Generation of Men. Probably with a forward by Ted Haggard.
