Flashback to January of this year when Christian conservative James Dobson said, “Speaking as a private individual, I would not vote for John McCain under any circumstances.”
And now to present day:
“I never thought I would hear myself saying this… While I am not endorsing Senator John McCain, the possibility is there that I might.”
I know. I can’t believe it either. A Religious Right leader *might* be voting Republican.
The institution of the family?
… Dobson said in a statement to the AP. “Barack Obama contradicts and threatens everything I believe about the institution of the family and what is best for the nation. His radical positions on life, marriage and national security force me to reevaluate the candidacy of our only other choice, John McCain.”
A reminder: It’s McCain who has been divorced. Not Barack Obama.
Where’s the Dobsonian consistency we’ve come to expect…?
Of his new position, Dobson said in the statement to the AP, “If that is a flip-flop, then so be it.”
I still wonder how many people he’ll persuade. His influence is fading quickly, especially among younger Christians who see how nutty he is.
