Focus on the Family's Dr. James Dobson accuses Obama of `distorting' Bible

Dr. James Dobson, Barack Obama, and Obama supporters have been having a pissing match of later over a speech Obama gave to a Christian group called 'Call to Renewal'. Dr. James Dobson, the founder of Christian group 'Focus on the Family' has accussed Barack Obama of 'deliberately distorting' the New Testament of the Christian Bible. According to reporting from the AP Obama's notable response soundbite from yesterday was "I think you'll see that he was just making stuff up, maybe for his own purposes."

The AP article links to an interesting website called by the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, a longtime George W. Bush supporter, with point by point comparison of the Obama speech and the Dobson response. So put on your Sunday School best and click through to push past the soundbite BS for some real live (sort of) facts on this controversy. You can read the Obama speech and listen to the Dobson response and decide for yourself.

Obama's campaign has sought a meeting with Focus on the Family but a response is still pending.
