A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

James Dobson Fires Broadside on Fred Thompson

In an interview for US News & World report, Dr. James Dobson, Evangelical leader, and founder of Focus on the Family stated doubts about the former Senator’s Christianity.

“Everyone knows he’s conservative and has come out strongly for the things that the pro-family movement stands for,” Dobson – considered the most politically powerful evangelical figure in the U.S. – said in a phone call to Dan Gilgoff, senior editor at U.S. News & World Report.

“[But] I don’t think he’s a Christian. At least that’s my impression.”

Thompson, spokesman,  Mark Corallo,  came out strongly against the statement, replying, “Thompson is indeed a Christian,” he said. “He was baptized into the Church of Christ.”

The Focus on the Family organization quickly qualified Dr. Dobson’s statement, stating that his words were meant to qualify Thompson’s status as an Evangelical.  Dobson had also added that everyone knows that the former Senator is a Conservative, and holds positions that are consistent with the pro-family organization.  Dobson’s endorsement of President Bush in 2004 may have influenced up to six million new evangelicals to vote in that election.  This of course makes his endorsement desirable for any candidate seeking a national office.   Up to this point Dr. Dobson has not endorsed any candidate, but has spoken favoroably of former Spaker Newt Gingrich.

  2. And at the same time he praised Gingrich. So much for non partisan Christianity…

  3. It is important to know that James Dobson is the judge of who is a Christian or not. Dobson uses politics to his advantage and should stop with the comments about other people’s personal beliefs.

  4. Agreed. I think that he kind of stepped in it on this one. Thomposon is very popular with Conservatives, and I don’t think a “born-again” litmus test is really a good thing.
