Dr. James Dobson to discuss John G. Roberts Nomination on radio program, Tuesday

Dr. James Dobson is extending an invitation through a Focus Action email to a radio discussion on the John Roberts nomination tomorrow. It should be interesting and informative as far as what is on the mind of these evangelical conservative leaders.

The email, in part, reads:
Let me also invite you to tune in to our daily radio broadcast on Tuesday, July 26, when I will discuss the nomination of Judge Roberts with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and Princeton University law professor Robert George.
You can hear the broadcast online or through your podcast software at at

If any of my readers hear the program, I would love to get your comments on it.

This also from that same email from Dr. James Dobson.
Of course, no one can discern with perfect accuracy what lies in the heart - and specifically the philosophy and beliefs - of this nominee. It will not be until future decisions are handed down by the Supreme Court that the ideology of this man, if confirmed, will become evident.

We're all aware of the tragic consequences that have resulted from the David Souter appointment by President George H.W. Bush, who believed at the time that Souter was a social conservative. He has turned out to be a radical liberal who has done great damage to this country. I know Souter has been a source of great embarrassment to former President Bush, who thought he knew the man but didn't. Unfortunately, the extremely liberal influences of Washington, D.C., when combined with a position of enormous power, can often change a person for the worse.

That is why we need to be in prayer that Judge Roberts' true colors will become apparent before a final confirmation decision is reached. For right now, however, the man looks good.
