In case you hadn’t heard, the National Association of Evangelicals told James Dobson and his merry band of retrograde knuckle-draggers to stuff it. In so many words.

In response to Dobson et. al’s complaints about Rich Cizik’s efforts to make "creation care" a central evangelical concern, NAE’s board "reaffirmed a 2004 position paper, ‘For the Health of the Nations,’ that outlined seven areas of civic responsibility for evangelicals, including creation care along with religious freedom, nurturing the family, sanctity of life, compassion for the poor, human rights and restraining violence."

NAE even had the gall to come out against torture! That’s really got to bug Dobson.
