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 – Christian – to refer to people who are evangelical Christians. Dobson wasn’t expressing a personal opinion about his reaction to a Thompson candidacy,” 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.

    The bloggers at Lawyers, Guns & Money have noted that
    Dobson’s primary reason for backing Newt may have to do with
    Newt’s rejection of any sort of election finance reform,
    including limits on “soft money.” Dobson raises a lot of
    soft money for the GOP, and he will not support anyone
    who favors limits on soft money. McCain did support efforts
    at campaign finance reform, which in itself was probably enough
    to earn him Dobson’s anger.
