Obviously, I think James Dobson is more than vastly off-base in his criticsm of Barack Obama seeing how he's cherry-picking quotations from a speech that was warmly received by a vast majority of the evangelical community in 2006 and now, two years later when he just happens to be the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party, it's convenient to assail said cherry-picked quotations.

Part of my problem is that, in essence, Dobson is moving to shut down conversation solely because the debate that Obama tried to get going - that faith, particularly Christian faith, has a variety of dimensions and interpretations that need to be discussed, debated and respected - is one that runs directly contrary to the more exclusionary religion Dobson is preaching.
