LOS ANGELES (AP) – Barack Obama said Tuesday that evangelical leader James Dobson was “making stuff up” when he accused the presumed Democratic presidential nominee of distorting the Bible.
Dobson used his Focus on the Family radio program to highlight excerpts of a speech Obama gave in June 2006 to the liberal Christian group Call to Renewal.
Speaking to reporters on his campaign plane before landing in Los Angeles, Obama said the speech made the argument that people of faith, like himself, “try to translate some of our concerns in a universal language so that we can have an open and vigorous debate rather than having religion divide us.”
Obama added, “I think you’ll see that he was just making stuff up, maybe for his own purposes.”
Hmmm….people of faith, like himself. Is that the “God Damn America” faith, Obama? I really don’t know a hell of a lot about the Bible, Obama…So do tell where the “God Damn America” part is. Let’s see 20 years or so of listening to that. Hey do you think Rev. Wright knows, where the “God Damn America” part is?
Tiz rather obvious, Rev. Wright’s ranting are part of your entire make up, Obama. Why I saw your hands right on your crotch, while the National Anthem was being played. I believe your back was to that “God Damn America” flag, as well.
