By now you’ve probably heard some of James Dobson’s comments about Barack Obama. On Tuesday’s Focus on the Family radio show, Dobson discussed a 2006 speech and made a lot of accusations about Obama’s faith. You can read the news story here.
I think James Dobson has done a lot for America, and I really respect his ministry. However, I think he’s gone off the deep end here. To be fair, I haven’t listened to Dobson’s broadcast, but you can listen to it on his website.
I did, however, read the speech in question. I highly recommend taking 10-15 minutes to read Obama’s Call to Renewal speech from June 28, 2006.
It’s an incredible speech about religion and politics.
I don’t agree with all of his politics, or all of his decisions. But based on what I read here, Obama is definitely a man of faith and a strong Christian. I think I agree with his “religion”. And I think Dobson took comments out of context and distorted Obama’s words. Who knows why…
Don’t take my word for it. Don’t take Dobson’s word for it. Go read the speech.
I’m a conservative, evangelical Republican. But reading this speech really makes we want to vote for Obama. … And Dobson lost some credibility with me today …
