Bob Jones congratulates the President:
The media tells us that you have received the largest number of popular votes of any president in America’s history. Congratulations!
In your re-election, God has graciously granted America though she doesn’t deserve it a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a mandate. We the people expect your voice to be like the clear and certain sound of a trumpet. Because you seek the Lord daily, we who know the Lord will follow that kind of voice eagerly.
Don’t equivocate. Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.

…Maureen Dowd has some related thoughts:
You’d think the one good thing about merging church and state would be that politics would be suffused with glistening Christian sentiments like “love thy neighbor,” “turn the other cheek,” “good will toward men,” “blessed be the peacemakers” and “judge not lest you be judged.”
Yet somehow I’m not getting a peace, charity, tolerance and forgiveness vibe from the conservatives and evangelicals who claim to have put their prodigal son back in office.
I’m getting more the feel of a vengeful mob – revved up by rectitude – running around with torches and hatchets after heathens and pagans and infidels…
Mr. Stephanopoulos asked Dr. Dobson about his comment to The Daily Oklahoman that “Patrick Leahy is a ‘God’s people-hater.’ I don’t know if he hates God, but he hates God’s people,” noting that it was not a particularly Christian thing to say about the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. (Especially after that vulgar un-Christian thing Dick Cheney spat at Mr. Leahy last summer.)
“George,” Dr. Dobson haughtily snapped back, “do you think you ought to lecture me on what a Christian is all about?” Why not? The TV host is the son of a Greek Orthodox priest.
…here’s a good profile of Dobson.
