The Brody File producer Robin Mazyck here with another guest blog. David's on vacation, and I'm taking over -- just don't tell my news director.
On to serious matters now.
A group of ministers has launched a new Web site defending Barack Obama against Dr. James Dobson's recent attacks. It's called James Dobson Doesn't Speak for Me.
Read below from the website:
James Dobson doesn't speak for me.
He doesn't speak for me when he uses religion as a wedge to divide;
He doesn't speak for me when he speaks as the final arbiter on the meaning of the Bible;
James Dobson doesn't speak for me when he uses the beliefs of others as a line of attack;
He doesn't speak for me when he denigrates his neighbor's views when they don't line up with his;
He doesn't speak for me when he seeks to confine the values of my faith to two or three issues alone;
What does speak for me is David's psalm celebrating how good and pleasant it is when we come together in unity;
Micah speaks for me in reminding us that the Lord requires us to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Him.
The Web site goes on, taking a look at the Focus on the Family show that aired on June 24 criticizing Obama. It compares what Dobson said on air to what Obama said during his June 2006 speech at the Call to Renewal.
The effort is being spearheaded by Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell. Caldwell is the well-known, well-respected minister of Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. Windsor Village began with 25 members. Today it has more than 14,000.
You probably remember Caldwell from the 2000 RNC Convention. He introduced President Bush. The two men are still very close. He is one of President Bush's closest spiritual advisors. According to reports, he conducted Jenna Bush's wedding. You can read more about Caldwell by clicking here.
Sources tell The Brody File that as of 8 a.m. EST, more than 2,700 people have logged on to this Web site.
James Dobson may not speak for Caldwell and his group of colleagues, but he speaks for millions of Evangelicals who are concerned about life and marriage issues and his beliefs on salvation. Like David said in his earlier blog, many Christians are trying to understand Obama's thoughts on how one gets to Heaven -- if it's not through Jesus Christ alone.
