President Bush and James Dobson Plot The Apocalypse

I don't know what I find more disturbing about this story... the obvious non-separation of church and state that it represents, or the fact our President (who believed he went to war to do God's work) is meeting with wrath-happy evangelical leaders to discuss volatile foreign policy issues. Let's call it a tie-
President George W. Bush met privately with Focus on the Family Founder and Chairman James Dobson and approximately a dozen Christian right leaders last week to rally support for his policies on Iraq, Iran and the so-called "war on terror."

“I was invited to go to Washington DC to meet with President Bush in the White House along with 12 or 13 other leaders of the pro-family movement," Dobson disclosed on his radio program Monday. “And the topic of the discussion that day was Iraq, Iran and international terrorism. And we were together for 90 minutes and it was very enlightening and in some ways disturbing too."...

...Dobson described Bush as “upbeat and determined and convinced, adding, “I wish the American people could have sat in on that meeting we had.”...

So do I. Oh, to have been a frightened fly on that wall, indeed.

I'm sure we can all sleep safe at night knowing our foreign policy is in these men's hands for another 19 months.
