Dobson’s Diatribe

DOBSON’S DIATRIBE….Peter Wehner, former aide to George Bush and a well-known evangelical Christian, writes in the Washington Post today about James Dobson’s recent temper tantrum over Barack Obama’s religious views:

If Christian conservatives want to be taken seriously, they need to make serious arguments and speak with intellectual integrity. In this instance, Dobson didn’t. He has set back his cause and made some of us who are evangelicals and conservatives wince.

Good for him for saying so. Dobson’s outburst would have made me wince too if he were on my side.
