James Dobson – The religious right’s new kingmaker. By Michael Crowley: “In one of his books, Dobson has written of the gay-rights movement that ‘[e]vil has a way of overreaching.’ So does the far right.”Slate, part of the far left (much smaller than even obscure Protestant groups) manages to be nicer to Arafat than to Dobson. You can tell who they hate more. After all, Arafat only murdered thousands. Dobson wants to end legal abortion! Anyone who has not heard of Dobson and needs the kind of condescending description found here needs more friends. Evangelicals know secular culture. We have to know it. What excuses this horrid ignorance?
