Yesterday, Christian rightist leader James Dobson claimed that actor and potential GOP Presidential candidate Fred Thompson is not qualified to be President because, Dobson says, he's not a Christian. Conservative blogger Andrew Sullivan weighs in on the issue:
A religious test for public office - clearly stated by the GOP's most powerful base figure. Catholics aren't real Christians either, according to Dobson. Now maybe people will take the threat to secular politics seriously. Here's the acid test: see if any of the other Republican candidates or a leading figure in the Bush administration attacks Dobson's position. This is getting interesting.
