................If you are a conservative Christian this may be the most important story that has ever appeared on Arkansas Watch. The war of words between Focus on the Family President James Dobson and former Republican House Majortiy Leader Dick Armey intensifies. The words of these two men reflect a problem that will impact us all. It may not be pleasant reading, but retreating into denial of the problem, as has too often been done, will only lead to more pain later. The scripture reads "study to show thyself approved". With that admonition, let us study the situation we are in closely.
The war of words began when former House Majority Leader Dick Armey called Dr. Dobson and associates "thugs" and "bullies" and many other uncomplimentary names. This took many people by surprise, including the famously genteel Dobson, who responded to the charges in this FOX news column (which bears reading). Now former Congressman Armey has responded with this column, which also bears reading and which I will inspect shortly.
