Dobson is at it again

Dobson is in the news again throwing his morality out at others as usual...

Dobson took aim at examples Obama cited in asking which Biblical passages should guide public policy - chapters like Leviticus, which Obama said suggests slavery is OK and eating shellfish is an abomination, or Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, "a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application."

"Folks haven't been reading their Bibles," Obama said.

Dobson and Minnery accused Obama of wrongly equating Old Testament texts and dietary codes that no longer apply to Jesus' teachings in the New Testament.

"I think he's deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit his own worldview, his own confused theology," Dobson said.

"... He is dragging biblical understanding through the gutter."

But I'll bet he still teaches "tithing" which is also an Old Testament law that does not apply under the new covenant.

A cousin of mine, who is a dyed-in-the-wool religious right conservative just sent me a copy of that diatribe of Dobson's just last night. Just amazing the lengths and depths some will go to in order to try to smear people, isn't it?

Absolutely Jeni. Maybe he should just "focus on his own family" so to speak. Maybe he's losing it in his old age.
