It's ironic that he voted for a candidate that "he believes best reflects Christ’s teachings." I don't recall Christ promoting the taking of innocent life.

God himself makes concessions. I'm completely against what I perceive to be a failed Keynest (or in some cases downright socialist) agenda, but where people feel they need to choose between an ostensibly intelligent Democrat and a Republican who obviously has no problem with war and other forms of killing, I can't blame him.
That said, I doubt it has even as much to do with God's kingdom as this story makes it out to.

It tends to be the case that people who feel that they are very learned are easily lead astray by their own intelligence. It would seem that this might also explain why so many supposedly intelligent people in academia are liberals. It seems, on the surface, to be intellectually fulfilling to cling to their hogwash. It's only a realistic look at reality that brings one back to Earth. But reality is fuzzy from up in the Ivory Tower.

I think it's the same way with Dobson. He's a very intelligent and biblically learned person. But it's easy for great intelligence to get perverted, even within your own mind, as wisdom. The two are not the same. An intelligent man with no wisdom is worse than a fool. A fool likely at least knows they are fool. An intelligent man with no wisdom convinces themselves they are not.

er... In that last post, second paragraph, instead of perverted the word should be mistaken. I was revising things as I wrote and half changed that sentence... Sorry...

Our current war is defending innocent life whereas abortion takes innocent life. Apples and oranges.

I don't even know how to respond to that. What is Christian sight? What is a hroascope? Do Christians use a hroascope to improve their sight? If so, I must be out of the loop. Please enlighten me.
