More on Bush, Dobson, and Focus on the Family
I don't know if you are aware of what took place at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC)fundraiser, but I came across this on WorldNetDaily today:
and this on FoxNews (which, to my surprise, actually mentioned the incident at all, though not as prominently as it deserved):
In the event that you choose not to read the articles behind the URL hotlinks, each reports on the attendence of the NRCC fundraiser by one Mary Carey, a well-known star of pornographic films who is considering a run for Lieutenant Governor of California next year as an Independent (so why is she attending a GOP fundraiser?).
My question is, given Focus on the Family's consistent support for the President, does the organization care to make a public comment about the GOP's choice of donors, particularly with the message Ms. Carey's endorsement sends to the GOP "faithful?" Does FoF intend to take the President to task for his indiscretion in meeting with Ms. Carey publicly, given his oft-stated committment to faith and family values? Also, do you intend to call for a moratorium on support or contributions to the RNC until this issue is explained or resolved?
You might want to suggest that the GOP return Ms. Carey's contributions as improper.
Just a thought.
I have no doubt that some will by now accuse me of "picking on" Dr. Dobson and FoF. However, I think that it is essential that an organization with as much visibility and influence as this one, an organization held in high esteem and held as an authentic source of faith-based counsel by hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Christians be made to demonstrate its integrity. The FoF has long taken President Bush's claim of being "born again" at face value, never reconciling the man's words with his deeds. The NRCC fundraising dinner is yet another example of how the GOP has cynically co-opted the Christian movement in America with cheap talk and meaningless gestures, something that too many believers apparently value over concrete action. FoF has been a major player in this travesty and it is high time that they either 1) reverse course and denounce the Bush Administration for the hypocritical, Godless, warmongering dictatorship that it is, or 2) take off their mask and admit that they are nothing but a partisan front for the GOP and the neoconservative regime, dressing themselves up in order to legitimize themselves with a Christian facade.
I don't expect an answer to my query, nor do I expect to hear a word of the NRCC event to be mentioned on any Christian radio stations in North America, but you can be certain that some of us are going to start asking hard-ball questions of our fellow congregants who continue to "sieg heil", offer prayers for the Fuehrer, and swallow Rome-on-the-Potomac's transparent and hypocritical lies.
