Washington Briefing: 2006 Values Voter Summit
Omni Shoreham Hotel -- September 22-24, 2006         ...3 of 5 >
September 22, 2006--Alan Sears, President, CEO and General Counsel of the Alliance Defense Fund; Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council; and Dr. James Dobson, Founder and Chairman of Focus on the Family, participated in a wide-ranging interview/Q&A.  Pointing to the strong support voters in a number of states have given to constitutional amendments to outlaw gay marriage, Sears said the subject is "a bridge issue" and a "unifier."  Dobson said that while President Bush is not perfect, "He is the most pro-life president we have ever had and when it comes to the war on terror, he gets it."  At the urging of Perkins he also discussed a recent hunting trip he took with his son to a Canadian island where he shot a bear.  Dobson also threw a few barbs at Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, stating that Lynn "makes a living off me."
