Oh, I see, it’s coming down to a sectarian battle now?!
Fortunately for America, most Christians by definition don’t consider Conservative Evangelical Protestants authoritative on the subject!!! Only a quarter of Americans belong to these sects, ie, less than half of Protestants.
BTW, when Dobson refers to “the traditional understanding of the Bible” on “Old Testament texts and dietary codes that no longer apply,” he means his tradition. There are other Protestant sects that disagree with him on OT laws!
Obama’s point that people who base their politics on their religion – like me! – need to try to appeal to people who won’t necessarily buy their religion’s interpretations, isn’t persecuting anybody or denying anybody’s rights, it’s simply good advice! Dobson distorts Obama!!!!!
