This is really good:
Since this letter is very long, I’m just going to post the link. It’s well worth reading, and Dr. Dobson gives the reasons why he now will vote for McCain:
Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden. ~ Phaedrus
Barry the Hatchet
Religion-phobe Barry Lynn is at it again, getting in his final dig at pastors before the November 4 election. His Americans United for the Separation of Church and State dropped a 100,000-piece mailing this week to churches, threatening them to stay silent on moral issues-or else. The scare tactic is a favorite of Lynn’s, whose purpose is to undermine pastors’ constitutional rights to speak about moral issues from the pulpit. With just days to go before voters decide a host of important ballot initiatives, American United is doing its best to frighten clergy. This week, the organization called for an IRS investigation of Bishop Arthur Serratelli, who wrote a passionate article about the dangers of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). Although Bishop Serratelli was well within his rights to comment, Lynn is accusing him of denouncing Sen. Barack Obama, who has pledged to make FOCA his first priority. Accurate guidance on the law for pastors can be found on the Alliance Defense Fund’s great website at www.telladf.org/church.
Sentenced for Life
Never one to let the truth get in the way of a good commercial, the pro-abortion camp unleashed a new ad that features women who have been imprisoned for having abortions. Essentially, the group http://www.howmuchtime.org claims that making abortion illegal will result in women’s imprisonment. As veteran attorneys are pointing out, the charge is absolutely ridiculous. Americans United for Life attorney Clarke Forsythe points out that before Roe v. Wade the state laws “targeted abortionists, not women.” Since 1922, there hasn’t been a single documented case of a woman being charged for having an abortion. “Second,” he writes, “If Roe were overturned today… the legislatures of the states would have to enact new abortion laws.” What that does is return the question of abortion to the people of America-where it belongs! Judicial expert Wendy Long jokes, “This is something called democracy, and it works quite well!” Under measures like the Freedom of Choice Act, which the next Congress may enact if the liberals expand their control, it is pro-life groups that will find themselves as defendants for trying to protect the lives of the unborn.

All I Need to Know about Tolerance, I Learned in Kindergarten
“We’re learning to be allies.” That’s how one California mom discovered that something was terribly wrong at her kindergartner’s school. Together with other five-year-olds, her daughter has spent the entire week learning what it means to be “tolerant.” This morning, without notifying a single parent, Faith Ringgold School of Art and Science kicked off “Coming Out Day” as part of “Gay and Lesbian History Month.” When parents called the school to complain, an office worker directed them to contact Hayward Unified School District. Despite several attempts, the District never answered its phone. Only from hallway posters did parents learn that the elementary school is hosting a “TransAction Gender-Bender Read-Aloud” next month.
In California and Massachusetts, where same-sex “marriage” is infecting the public school curriculum, parents are sounding the alarm. Stories like this one used to be isolated to the liberal pockets of San Francisco. Today, these extremists are moving through our schools with surprising ease, targeting younger and younger students as they go.
Opponents of Proposition 8 continue to argue that gay “marriage” won’t affect our children. In a new ad funded by “No on Prop 8,” California State Superintendent Jack O’Connell insists that “Proposition 8 has nothing to do with schools or kids.” Either O’Connell is oblivious to what’s happening in his own schools (one of which hauled off first graders to a lesbian wedding), or he is simply denying it to satisfy the agenda of the state’s largest teachers’ union.
Whatever his motive is, the pressure to pass Proposition 8 is mounting. Our sources on the ground in California say that Hollywood is making a powerful, last-minute push, bringing in several million dollars to launch its biggest ad buy yet. Make no mistake. The marriage amendment is the single most important issue on the ballot this election. A loss in California would be devastating to families and schoolchildren in every state. Please do what you can to help our allies on the West Coast. Log on to http://www.protectmarriage.org today.
