 Dobson: Point man in America's culture war


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - To millions of conservative Christians, James Dobson and his Focus on the Family ministry have emerged as a life preserver in an American culture, fending off assaults from popular culture and liberals.

“He’s trustworthy, he’s intelligent, he’s well-respected,” said the Rev. Ted Haggard, president of the National Association of Evangelicals representing more than 43,000 congregations. “If people would do what Jim Dobson suggests they would live a better life.”

Yet Dobson has also become a lightning rod for criticism by weighing in on major political issues, from stem cell research and abortion to tax credits for families. Last month, Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., called him the “antichrist” and said he was trying to “hijack Christianity” by backing President Bush’s federal appeals court nominees.

Salazar, a Roman Catholic, later backed off the antichrist comment, but stood by his claim that Dobson’s ministry has become an arm of the Republican Party.

May God continue to bless James Dobson, and his Focus On The Family Ministry. I believe that it is about time that all of us who are called by His name will be asked to step it up a notch or two..
