Thank God, I found you guys!

Heard on NPR this morning that the president plans to meet James Dobson while in CO today. Did a bit of searching and found this article on the trip. And some choice sentences...

First, however, the president is scheduled to meet with James Dobson, head of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family. Dobson is a leading supporter of a proposed constitutional amendment that would bar legal recognition of same-sex marriages.

The group also supports the president's faith-based initiative, a plan to allow religious organizations to compete for federal social services contracts. The proposal is popular with religious groups and Bush is pushing it ahead of the fall elections.

Dobson did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Should government dictate culture?


Should government dictate culture, through laws or influence? Or should that job fall to the people? Apparently our president believes that the government should arbitrate culture, and believes that laws and constitutional amendments can be made to do just that.

Here's a quote from a rare on the record presidential interview with The Christian Times. In it, he makes some chilling points, and states even more chilling goals:

President George W. Bush, in a rare on-the-record session with religion editors and writers on Wednesday, said his job as president is to "change cultures."

In wide-ranging comments inside the Roosevelt Room, Bush spoke passionately about his resolve to establish a free Iraq, his desire to promote cultural change in the United States through his faith-based initiative, and his belief in the power of prayer. Appearing relaxed and self-assured, the President also reaffirmed his support for a Federal Marriage Amendment, urging the American people to become more involved.

Following is an edited transcript of the May 26, 2004, session.Read more... )
