Religious Persecution: Bill Frist Speaks to Evangelicals

The New York Times Tells the Story:
Some of the nation's most influential evangelical Protestants are participating in the teleconference in Louisville, including Dr. James C. Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family; Chuck Colson, the born-again Watergate figure and founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries; and Dr. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Dobson and Colson and Mohler, Oh My! as Dorothy and Company might say if they were from the Left.

Of course, it's perfectly acceptable for prominent Democrats from Clinton to Gore to Kerry to speak in black churches across the country, and to hold what amounts to political fundraisers there. It's only when Conservatives speak at prominent Evangelical Conferences that The New York Times smells trouble. I seriously doubt Mr. Kirkpatrick, the writer of this story, has ever listened to one of Dr. Dobson's radio shows, or would even know where to find Chuck Colson's books, most especially his excellent look at the Kingdom of God vs. The kingdoms of the world called Kingdoms in Conflict. And Lord knows, he would never deign himself lowly enough to enter a (horrors) Southern Baptist Church.

Any wonder the folks in what is arrogantly called "flyover country" are getting redder and redder?
