Dobson on Obama 'Fruitcake' Religion

I just filed a story about James Dobson's radio program today in which he attacked Barack Obama's views on religion and the Constitution. (I listened to it while making coffee, etc. Not a bad way to do some work!) Drudge was previewing the heck out of his on his homepage yesterday, so I'm assuming everyone knew this was going to happen today.

Here's the Readers Digest version.
Dobson’s segment largely focused on Obama’s 2006 religiously-themed Call to Renewal Speech and took particular issue with Obama’s refusal to support the Partial Birth Abortion Act as an Illinois State Senator. The bill would have given medial protection to babies who miraculously survived abortion.

 Dobson played several audio portions of Obama’s speech, pausing to criticize certain passages. Obama, who maintains he is personally pro-life but has a 100 percent voting record from abortion lobbyists, said, “I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God's will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.”

 Dobson seethed. “What the senator is saying there, in essence, is that I can’t seek to pass legislation for example, that bans partial birth abortion because there are people in the culture who don’t see that as a moral issue and if I can’t get everyone to agree with me it is undemocratic to try to pass legislation that I find offensive to the Scripture. That is a fruitcake interpretation of the Constitution.”
