Poison Pen: James Dobson’s Latest Missive Misses The Mark

by Rob Boston

A letter drafted by Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family (FOF), has been getting some attention on social media sites and blogs lately.

In the missive, Dobson, a child psychologist who founded what has become one of the largest and most powerful Religious Right groups in the nation, surveyed the results of the November election. He’s not happy.

“I'm sure many of you are discouraged in the aftermath of the National Elections, especially in view of the moral and spiritual issues that took such a beating on November 6th,” Dobson wrote. “Nearly everything I have stood for these past 35 years went down to defeat.”

Dobson, who left FOF a few years ago and now runs a smaller radio outfit called Family Talk, doesn’t understand what went wrong. The Democratic Party platform, he notes, supported legal abortion and same-sex marriage. Those pesky Democrats didn’t even include references to God until they were shamed into it!

Not really anything to add to this, just more of the same in the ongoing culture war.

3. As Boston said in his blog piece:

"Dobson may be angry about November’s results, but he’s not going anywhere. That means you shouldn’t either."

As has been often said, "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."
