Who Is Christian? Only Dobson Knows
James Dobson has a peculiarly narrow definition of Christianity. To Dobson, possible GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson, who was baptized in the Church of Christ, is not a Christian. (“We use that word â€“ Christian â€“ to refer to people who are evangelical Christians. Dobson wasnâ€™t expressing a personal opinion about his reaction to a Thompson candidacy,â€ said Dobson spokesman Gary Schneeberger.) But Newt Gingrich, according to Dobson, is “the brightest guy out there” and one of “the most articulate positions on the scene today.” Apparently Thompson needs to have a few more wives before he earns Dobson’s stamp of approval.
