Did he really expect something else?

Dr. James Dobson is upset. I realize that he is upset a lot these days, especially when we have award-winning films about gay male lovers being released in the theaters and on DVD. But at this moment, he's not particularly upset about that. He's not upset about the plight of homeless people, or about the situation in Darfur, or about the immigration issue.

Dobson is upset with the Republican politicians, including the president, because they're not doing what he thinks they should do.
"I can't tell you how much anger there is at the Republican leadership," Mr. [Richard] Viguerie [a conservative direct-mail pioner] said. "I have never seen anything like it."

In the last several weeks, Dr. James C. Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and one of the most influential Christian conservatives, has publicly accused Republican leaders of betraying the social conservatives who helped elect them in 2004. He has also warned in private meetings with about a dozen of the top Republicans in Washington that he may turn critic this fall unless the party delivers on conservative goals.

And at a meeting in Northern Virginia this weekend of the Council for National Policy, an alliance of the most prominent Christian conservatives, several participants said sentiment toward the White House and Republicans in Congress had deteriorated sharply since the 2004 elections. (NY Times)

Oh. My. Gravy. How absolutely shocking. Politicians not doing what we think should be done. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

See, this is what happens we put too much faith in politicans to do something which we believe will further God's Kingdom. We will be ultimately dissappointed.
