2008 Stealing Jesus

Conservative Christian leader James Dobson—who said during the primaries that he couldn’t support John McCain if he got the GOP nomination—isn’t too happy with Barack Obama right now.
You see, Barack Obama somehow got it into his head that he could read the scriptures for himself, interpret them for himself, and develop his own personal relationship with Jesus. As any student of the protestantism should know, the whole point of breaking with Rome in the way, way back was to prevent people from reading the scripture themselves, perhaps in the local vernacular, and forming a personal, intimate, relationship with their savior that wasn’t mediated by priests.
