Evangelical leader James Dobson has endorsed Curtis Bostic in the GOP runoff for the South Carolina first congressional district.

Wait … James who?

James Dobson … he’s a Bible-thumping author and radio host who led the socially conservative organization Focus on the Family from 1977-2003. He’s also one of the more sanctimonious types you’re likely to come across.

“It is with confidence and enthusiasm that I endorse the nomination of Curtis Bostic for the United States Congress,” Dobson said. “Curtis is steadfast in supporting traditional marriage and defending the unborn child, matters of pre-eminent importance at this crucial hour in our nation’s history. He further supports States’ rights under the 10th Amendment, religious liberty, and parental rights in directing their children’s education. Curtis favors continued strong U. S. support for Israel, and defends the rights granted our citizenry under the Second Amendment.”

Hmmmm … Bostic also supports excessive government spending and human trafficking (via a “Christian” adoption agency, no less).

Dobson remains an influential evangelical leader, but the bottom line is Bostic already had the social conservative vote locked up in this race – so it’s doubtful this endorsement will score him many “converts.”

Bostic faces former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford in the GOP runoff for the first district on April 2. The winner will go up against Democrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch in May.

FITS: Don’t act like the idiot you are…Everybody knows who Dobson is…even if they are Bigots against Christians, like you…and hate him..

Sadly we live in a country where a man who steals from the people, while he runs out on his wife and kids, could be more respected than a Christian leader…

At any rate: this is an example of pop culture hatred for anything good…

You worship liberalism, hedonism and a vile culture….as you pontificate about separation of church and state…

You want a theocracy, as long as your gods Obama, Mahr and Sanford are exalted on high…

no arguments about that, but think about the smear campaign that colbert (stephen and his sister) could run about being endorsed by a “hate group” if the most important thing-as bostic has stated himself-is keeping the seat red, i think the GOP has shot itself in the foot again with this primary

I haven’t seen a combover that sweet since George Felton coached b-ball at USC. I miss Coach Felton. We shared many beers at that place under the trestle at Rosewood whose name I can’t remember. Jerry Kelly’s, maybe?

Jerry Kelly’s is the place but it’s “comb over” as in “…he comb(ed) his hair over to cover his glaring bald spot…”

This headline has to be tough for all those people who stood in long lines to buy a sandwich in support of chick-fil-a few months back.

Methinks the headline is a bit tougher for those who’ve tried to paint Chick-Fil-A as some sort of homophobic hate organization.

I would say their position evolved, but I don’t think they believe in evolution.
