James Dobson, head of the evangelical Christian group Focus on the Family, has received a personal note from Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito commending them for their help in his confirmation process, RAW STORY has learned.
The letter was posted by Progress Action Now. The group has also posted audio of Dobson reading the letter during his radio broadcast. The letter follows.
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 they were praying for me and for my family during this period.
As I said when I spoke at my formal vestiture 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 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 much we appreciate all that you have done.
