Christian leader refuses to bow to 'wicked regulations' of 'abortion president'

GARTH KANT
Published: 8 hours ago

WASHINGTON – James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and Family Talk Radio, a harsh critic of President Obama and an opponent in court, on Thursday described him as the “abortion president” during an address at the National Day of Prayer.

Dobson, whose organization recently won a court fight against Obama over a mandate in Obamacare that would have required his ministry to pay for abortion pills, has not been shy about challenging the president on his abortion agenda.

At one point during the fight over the imposition of the abortion mandate, he said to the president: “Come and get me. I will not yield to your wicked regulations.”

Dobson is a fraud

James Dobson is a fraud. He allowed himself to be influenced, if not controlled, by people like Gary Bauer and Tom Minnery. He was neutralized by Reagan. Years ago when Focus on the Family was still in California, I was able to tour their facility with one of their employees. In the conference room they had a huge portrait of Reagan. Reagan was a socialist one-worlder masquerading as a conservative. In addition to other issues exposing the fact that he was a phony, he was supposedly against abortion, but funded Planned Parenthood.

I also believe if there is one single person that could have made the difference in getting Ron Paul elected President, it was James Dobson. Not so much now, but when Dobson was at Focus on the Family, he had an incredible amount of influence in the Christian community. If he had endorsed Ron Paul for President, many other Christian leaders would have followed his lead, and the phonies like Hannity would have had a real tough time attacking Ron Paul if he had been endorsed by Dobson.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

I sent him this in response...

Mr. Dobson,

I read about your comments at the National Day of Prayer. While I share your outrage about abortion and your genuine love for the defenseless child in the womb, I regret to say that the Republican Party is the biggest beneficiary of these kinds of utterances. Perhaps you do this by design.

Let me explain: Every Republican runs on a pro-life platform, which baits the votes of tens of millions of Christians, but in essence this pro-life posturing is not only meaningless, but actually hugely counter-productive. You can confirm the exact numbers, but in broad terms, despite the strong presence of Republicans in Congress and their control of the House (the holder of the purse strings), they routinely vote for budgets that pour hundreds of millions of dollars into Planned Parenthood’s coffers. In 2011, Planned Parenthood received more than $300 million from the federal government (much of it disguised as Medicare, not that this fact changes anything). This amount was raised to an astonishing $524 million in 2012. Planned Parenthood ran a surplus of $87 million in 2012. Planned Parenthood has net assets of $1.2 billion.

Furthermore, on February 10, 2005, Ron Paul introduced the Sanctity of Life Act, H.R. 776, which was referred to the Judiciary committee, which in turn referred it to the Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet, and Intellectual Property on April 4, 2005. It had five cosponsors. The 110th Congress was controlled by the “pro-life” Republicans, with a Republican in the White House. The Sanctity of Life Act would have defined human life and legal personhood (specifically, natural personhood) as beginning at conception, "without regard to race, sex, age, health, defect, or condition of dependency.” On February 15, 2007, Ron Paul reintroduced the Sanctity of Life Act in the 110th Congress, with four cosponsors. He reintroduced another version with the same name on June 6, 2007, with five cosponsors. The bills, H.R. 1094 and H.R. 2597, were referred to the Judiciary committee. The committee referred the first bill to the Subcommittee on the Constitution on March 19, 2007, and the second bill to the Subcommittee on Courts on July 16, 2007; both bills expired in subcommittee. In 2009, Paul reintroduced another version of the bill H.R. 2533 with one cosponsor. Ron Paul introduced it again in March 2011, as H.R. 1096, for the 112th Congress (2011-2012).

The above illustrates the utter futility of voting for “pro-life” Republicans.

In 2012, I voted for Gary Johnson. My Christian friends condemned me because Johnson is a pro-choice candidate. My retort was that Gary Johnson would veto (as a Governor he was very good at this) a bill that appropriated one brass penny to Planned Parenthood. Voting for “pro-life” Republicans just furthers the cause of the abortionists. I’m not duped. I wonder about you and your fellow travelers on the GOP bandwagon.

However, even more troubling is the unbounded enthusiasm of the “pro-life” Republicans in Congress (and their Christian supporters) for war. Alas, there is no Bonhoeffer among the Christian leadership in our country today – just the opposite. Our leadership stands united behind the warmongers in Congress who are bankrolled by the military-industrial complex. They wholeheartedly supported the invasion of Iraq, which caused the deaths (and the human slaughter hasn’t stopped in Iraq) of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis, many of them little children and the mothers, some of whom undoubtedly were pregnant.

In addition, hundreds of thousands of children fled with their parents into refugee camps (more than two million souls for whom Jesus died, although the likes of Sarah Palin [the “Christian” candidate of the McCain-Palin ticket] would gladly condemn 1.2 billion Muslims to hell). These children spent what should have been the best years of childhood in refugee camps. In this case, the human suffering caused, with the full support of pro-life Christians, benefited the war profiteers in the defense and oil industries.

Someone remarked that for Christians, life starts at conception and ends at our borders.

The Christian church walks in lockstep with the warmongers. Christians continue to clamor for US military intervention in Libya, Syria and Iran. “Pro-life” Republicans in Congress unanimously voted for sanctions against Iran, a country and its people that have done us no harm, and should in fact be viewed as a mission field, albeit a difficult one and made more difficult by the Christians support for these military interventions. Today, Christian “leadership” (not my leaders) gleefully supports the imposition of sanctions against Iran, without realizing that sanctions are an act of war and have serious and deathly consequences.

The United Nations and the WHO calculated that sanctions against Iraq in the nineties caused the death of over 500,000 children, who were deprived of access to Western medicines. When questioned about this by the media, Madeline Albright’s answer was that “it was worth it.” How many children are dying in Iran today, because they cannot get access to Western medicines? Who cares? We are all pro-life aren’t we?

Christians lived side by side with Muslims in Iraq, in peace and harmony for centuries, until a pro-life President, to appease the special interests that bankrolled his political campaigns, concocted lies about WMDs and invaded the country. Christians had to flee and with them the witness they had among their Muslin neighbors.

There are still 600 churches in Iran. If the pro-life Christians and their representatives in Congress get their way and the US intervenes militarily in Iran, this lamp too will be extinguished. Christian leadership in the US doesn’t care about such niceties, as if the redemptive work of Jesus does not apply to Muslims.

In the early nineties, a Christian friend of mine told me that the Christian Right was going to infiltrate the GOP, precinct by precinct. The sad fact is that the GOP gladly accepted this strategy, because now they have a huge constituency who blindly votes for this evil establishment in the beltway. All it takes is for the Party to roll out the magic “pro-life” mantra. The end result, from my perspective, does not advance the cause of Christ, but rather does it untold harm.

Christian leadership need to distance themselves from the GOP, because as matters stand today, the gospel as preached in the US effectively means that to be a born again Christian you are also automatically a Republican. I have a very dim view of the Republican and Democratic establishment – just two wings of the same predatory bird. They have nothing in common with the Christian gospel that proclaims: Blessed are the peacemakers. Love your enemies. Bless those who curse you. Do good to them that hate you. Do unto others as you want them to do unto you.

Excellent Letter

I personally would have also mentioned how the ever popular Scofield Bible became the cornerstone for the Christian Zionist war monger movement (representing a large portion of neocon voters). And how to this end, the following short documentary needs to be shared with every church pastor possible:

Yes... thank you...

... I have seen this before and I'm glad to have the link again... I could have added this... I'm realistic about the chances of the letter having any impact. I suspect those who are given the task of sifting through his emails (no doubt staunch Republicans), will delete my letter to suppress the truth.

Shouldn't we all stand up for a cause like this man?

The true mark of a reborn

The true mark of a reborn Christian is selfless conviction, not selfish ritual.
