Minneapolis — Daddy Dobson's dropping by to rally the fundies
Focus on the Anus is trying to stir up The Base by holding a “Stand for the Family” event, staged “to educate and motivate pro-family conservative Christians.”
He’s bringing a bunch of his bible-beating, homobigoted friends to the Xcel Energy Center in Minneapolis/St. Paul on October 3.
In addition to Dr. Dobson, the list of speakers includes Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council; Gary Bauer, president of American Values; Dr. Ken Hutcherson, senior pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, Wash., and Dr. Richard Land of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Tom Minnery, senior vice president of government and public policy at Focus on the Family Action, said the event is to motivate and equip values voters. “We want to alert them to the tremendous issues facing them in the upcoming elections â€” and to lay out those issues in a nonpartisan fashion.” [You have to wonder if he said that with a straight face.]
Dr. Richard Land, an Oxford-educated Southern Baptist theologian and broadcaster, told CitizenLink his message will be a challenge to all Christians. “It is every Christian’s responsibility to be registered to vote,” he explained. “It is every Christian’s responsibility to be an informed voter. And it is every Christian’s responsibility to vote their values, their beliefs and their convictions, regardless of party loyalty or party affiliation. They have to vote for the values that they understand are taught by the Lord in Scripture â€” that’s part of being salt and light.
Daddy Dobson recently parachuted into Pittsburgh to do the same thing and flopped. He promised to fill a 17,000 seat venue and only 3,000 showed up to hear the AmTaliban drivel.
