Focus on the Family Fights Environmental Friendliness
Now why would silencing Pastor Cizik be so important to you Mr. Dobson? You worried that by taking global climate change seriously, evangelicals might divert their focus from the rapture? I mean you already missed the 2000 mark for the second coming. So what does it matter now if evangelicals worry about the next 993 years?
Oh wait a second. That's it, isn't it? You're thinking that, while their busy changing out their incandescents and installing solar collectors, your supporters might have a bit less money to put into your collection vault--might have to wait to get that personal Gulfstream, huh? Or is it just that environmentally sensitive congregations might not tow your political line? Won't follow you and your friends blindly down the path to theocracy?
Either way, it makes you out to look like a crass charlatan more interested in your own enrichment than in the gifts your God put on this earth for you, and everyone else, to enjoy.
Elsa... In fact, I think that your assessment is exactly what he's worried about. He's concerned about dilution of his political base at a time when conservatives have had their reputation trashed.
Maybe, FINALLY, people will see this man for what he is. A CRASS CHARLATAN.
I have been reeducating people who have read his "parenting advice" books for years. (you know, take them out behind the woodshed and beat the shit outta them until they behave).
He is the absolute worst of the worst, imo.
Pam...agreed. The man is scum with ear hair. Why would anybody read a parenting that Dobson had written?
PoP... Yup. No lightning here either. ;-)
