Alito, servant of the Christian Right

So apparently Alito sent James "Only I Can Define Marriage" Dobson, of Focus on the Family, a thank you letter for Dobson's help in securing his nomination.

The full text is below. Anyone who ever doubted that Alito would be a servant of the Christian right can go to sleep with their doubts assuaged. We are all doomed.

Dear Dr. Dobson:

This is just a short note to express my heartfelt thanks to you and the entire staff of Focus on the Family for your help and support during the past few challenging months.I would also greatly appreciate it if you would convey my appreciation to the good people from all parts of the country who wrote to tell me that they were praying for me and for my family during this period. As I said when I spoke at my formal investiture at the White House last week, the prayers of so many people from around the country were a palpable and powerful force. As long as I serve on the Supreme Court I will keep in mind the trust that has been placed in me. I hope that we'll have the opportunity to meet personally at some point in the future. In the meantime my entire family and I hope that you and the Focus on the Family staff know how we appreciate all that you have done.

Let me express my wholehearted agreement. As a child I grew up under parents who bought the "Focus on the Family" message hook, line, and sinker. This created an oppressive atmosphere in which being a child demanded adherence to extreme conservative right-wing view points. Dobson clearly expresses facist and totalitarian viewpoints when it comes to subjecting the christian viewpoint on the masses, Alito is just another tool for him.
