Obama worker, Bush pastor linked to Dobson-bashing
WND ^ | 6/27/08 | staff

Posted on 06/27/2008 6:42:19 PM PDT by pissant

A campaign worker for Barack Obama and the Texas Methodist pastor who advises President Bush have been linked to a website that bashes prominent Christian leader and Focus on the Family founder James Dobson.

The site, called "jamesdobsondoesntspeakforme," appeared just days ago after Dobson criticized Obama's interpretation of the Bible during a 2006 speech and Obama responded essentially by calling Dobson a liar, accusing him of "making things up."

Now a report from OneNewsNow, a division of the American Family Association, said the website originally was registered to Obama campaign worker Alyssa Martin, but the registration later was changed to Kirbyjon Caldwell, who leads a Methodist megachurch in Texas and has advised Bush.

Donald Wildman, the chairman of the AFA, suggested that Caldwell could do some explaining about his participation in the campaign to bash Dobson, the author of "Bringing Up Boys" and dozens of other family books.

OneNewsNow...is that like WorldNutDaily, or is it reliable?

the website originally was registered to Obama campaign worker Alyssa Martin, but the registration later was changed to Kirbyjon Caldwell, who leads a Methodist megachurch in Texas and has advised Bush.

Look at that...such cooperation...how sweet!

I wonder if this pastor is the reason why Obama went after James Dobson a week or so ago in a speech?

Yeah, because he doesn't have any problem with Wright and Farrakan using religion as a vehicle to spew venomous hatred toward white people.

Instead of siding with Dr. Dobson or another Christian leader, this guy has instead chosen Farrakhan, Wright and Obama. That was clearly the wise choice, was it not?

“....registration later was changed to Kirbyjon Caldwell, who leads a Methodist megachurch in Texas and has advised Bush.”

how does that happen without affecting the church's tax exempt status??

This Pastor is a shameless self promotor, wat kind of Pastor plasters his face and his agenda. Why doesn’t he tend to his flock.

The Bush family hangs around with some damned nice radical liberals. I wish I known this around the primary season of the year 2000.

Kirbyjon doesn’t realize he has adopted the “iPod” version of the Bible...he quotes those passages that appeal to him, and neglects the ones, like Genesis 9:6, that condemn the taking of a life.

So do I...

When Caldwell spoke at Bush's inauguration...(both times) I thought he sounded OK....no red flags ....

Good mercy, was I wrong!.

Same with Bush....but then millions of us can say 'same with Bush'....

We were deceived.

Caldwell lauching a website..."Dobson does not speak for me...

...this gives away the deception flat out.

So who does speak for you, Caldwell....Jeremiah Wright?!!!

This has been Bush's mentor/spiritual advisor for many many years, just like Wright has been for Obama.

It's funny (not funny ha ha, but funny/shocking)....that when the first main piece of the puzzle falls into place, the remainder of the picture is not hard to put together.

Folks, we are getting the whole picture now.....and it's horrifying.
