Evangelist rallies Oregon pastors to fight against same-sex marriage
In a talk at a Clackamas church, James Dobson says the debate is a key battle in a war of values

CLACKAMAS -- About 2,000 Oregon pastors and church leaders who oppose same-sex marriage jammed into New Hope Community Church on Monday for a meeting that was half pep rally, half war council.

Featured speaker James Dobson, an evangelist and popular radio talk show host, called the current debate on marriage the climactic battle in a war of values that has been waged for 20 years.

"This is the Waterloo, this is the Gettysburg," he said. "If lost, it will be like a mirror shattered. Once it's broken, it will not be able to be repaired."

1. James Dobson is the Most Dangerous Man in America.
Rob Boston wrote, "Pat Robertson, the Most Dangerous Man in America" a few years back. Dobson took his place. I read "Dobson's War on America," in which the author, Gil Moerle, talks about how Dobson suckers fans into thinking he's just a child psychologist giving 'Christian parenting advice' when, in fact, people soon fall into donating to what is essentially a political action committee, because Dobson enjoys making politicians sink to their knees before him. He belongs to that secretive Council for National Policy (or it is suspected that he is a member as he has been seen there) in which Robertson-types mingle with politicians -- divying up the country, I suppose. He is helping Rove energize the Base.
