Now that they are through targeting Mitt Romney, it looks as if the folks behind American Right to Life Action have turned their attention to James Dobson, accusing him of “breaking his pledge before God“:
On April 28, 1990 at the Washington D.C. Rally for Life Dr. Dobson stated, “I want to give a pledge to you on a political level… I have determined that for the rest of my life, however long God lets me live on this earth, I will never cast one vote for any man or woman who would kill one innocent baby.” James Dobson is violating this pledge by voting for John McCain for president, a Republican who has recently voted to authorize funding to kill some children by surgical abortion.
“Dr. Dobson is openly violating the pledge he took before God,” said Birkey, “by voting for John McCain. Both the Sarah Palin distraction, and the candidate’s rhetoric to Rick Warren claiming he believes that human rights begin at conception, are belied by McCain’s long tolerance of chemical abortifacients and funding the dissection of the tiniest embryonic boys and girls.”
“In violating his pledge before God, Dr. Dobson has lost the moral authority to speak for Christians,” said Curtis. “He can speak for Republicans who do not fear God, but he cannot speak for the Body of Christ.”
How serious are they? Serious enough to protest Focus on the Family headquaters:
Police are on the scene at Focus on the Family after reports that protesters from an anti-abortion group are refusing to leave.
“Apparently they weren’t causing a disruption or anything. They were just saying they weren’t going to leave,” said Colorado Springs police spokesman Lt. David Whitlock. Early reports said the protesters were in the lobby, he said.
