Southern Baptist's Richard Land Vs. Focus on the Family's James Dobson over Fred Thompson!!!
I agree with blender Pam , let's put these two in a steel-cage match, but it's nothing but a typical fundamentalist cat fight! Recently, Dr.Dobson has brought down his fiery judgment on Fred Thompson in an personal e-mail that contain his personal view of Fred:
Isn't Thompson the candidate who is opposed to a Constitutional amendment to protect marriage, believes there should be 50 different definitions of marriage in the U.S., favors McCain-Feingold, won't talk at all about what he believes, and can't speak his way out of a paper bag on the campaign trail?" Dobson wrote.
"He has no passion, no zeal, and no apparent 'want to.' And yet he is apparently the Great Hope that burns in the breasts of many conservative Christians? Well, not for me, my brothers. Not for me!"
I never thought i would do this, but i agree with Dobson. If you want to appeal to these fake Christ followers, then you have to be passionate in your zeal, dogma, bias, and intolerance. If you're not in more than one category, then Dobson won't support you.
Now Dobson has a challenger in his own ranks,Richard Land, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist, and he came to Fred's rescue:
I’ve received phone calls and emails from Southern Baptists about Senator Thompson. They are all furious at Doctor Dobson. They just feel that first of all there was a mischaracterizing of his positions. Do I wish that he supported the marriage protection amendment? Of course I do. To say that he is for 50 different views of marriage in 50 different states is a gross mischaracterization of his position. Secondly, do I wish that he attended church every Sunday? As a Baptist pastor, of course I do. But does that make him a person of unbelief? That’s harsh and unwarranted.”
Dr. Land argues that Dobson is NOT seeing Fred for what he really is. However, I agree with Dobson, something i never do, but for this one time i will. Fred is NOT conservative has he wants to appear for the conservative base. Dr.Land wants to make Fred to sound good to the conservative base of the GOP party. Read how he paints a picture of values out of Fred:
“Fred Thompson grew up in a very modest means in a small town in America just like Ronald Reagan grew up in very modest means in a small town in Illinois. You acquire not only an understanding of but a respect for everyday folk when you come from the background that you don’t get otherwise and people sense it. That this is a guy who respects me, a guy who understands that we are the backbone of this country, we are the salt of the Earth and he not only understands us, he’s one of us. He’s a successful one of us but he’s one of us and they trust a guy like that. They give a guy like that a larger margin of error. Nobody gets everything right but its core values. My assessment is that this guy is a whole much like Reagan including his Teflon quality. The press has been beating up with him for these types of gaffes and he continues to climb in the polls.”
Justice MH: Fred is NOT the saviour of the conservative base that Dr.Land so badly wants. In fact, the GOP field doesn't look like they have it together. The GOP party in my view, doesn't have control of this election in 2008. So Conservatives can keep fighting among each other Romney, Rudy, MCain, and even Fred will NOT save you!
