Have you heard Dobson's public take on Obama this week? CORRECTION: His public take on a two-year-old speech. You can watch the video here.
I haven't been a big Dobson fan for awhile. I know, I know, that makes me a bad mainstream Christian. Good thing I'm not one.
I'm having flashbacks to the whole SBC controversy when I hear one Christian say that another Christian is deliberately distorting the Bible, and that their views are "fruitcake." Next thing we know, someone will be busing in hoards of people to jack up the votes ... sorry ... that just flew over the head of all of you who were not embroiled in the infamous Southern Baptist good-old-boy slam fest (also known as the "SBC Conservative Resurgence/Fundamentalist Takeover" for short!).
Thankfully, Jim Wallis has weighed in. He does not endorse any candidates, but makes it a point to openly defend those who follow Christ when they are unjustly attacked by ... well ... those who follow Christ!
For those of you who are sitting here saying, "The psycho Christians are at it again!" let me remind you that people that believe in the teaching of Jesus Christ are, well, PEOPLE! Every single one of us has some major screw-ups that we have not yet tackled. We have a nice cornucopia of extremists, just like every other type of label or group on the planet (including your own - whatever that may be).
Hang in there with us.
