DOBSON to Twin Cities radio talk host: "In 30 years I've never...
DOBSON SAID THIS:

he invited listeners to go over "30 years of tapes" since he first went on the air:
"IN 30 years I've never made a statement of hatred toward homosexuals."

sure, James. And bats might fly outta...

2. if he's just quoting the hatred for homosexuals from the bible,
then maybe he doesn't count it as "his statement".

How anyone can read that book and not come away disgusted is beyond me.

3. He never outright said "I hate homosexuals". He just said things like
homosexuality is a sin (hate the sin, not the sinner), gays shouldn't have the right to marry, homosexuals can't be Christian, because they're unrepentant, that the sole purpose of homosexuality was to destroy the family, compares homosexuality with pedophilia, and so on and so on. But he never once said he "hates" homosexuals. Arrrgghhhh!

4. Anything he says on that subject is suspect
he has some issues of his own. Remember, dobson told xtian dads they should shower with their sons so the kids could see their dads penises. Not necessarily homophobic but awful strange coming from someone who "hates the sin".

9. It's in this Dobson newsletter from 2002
Scroll down to the paragraph that begins "Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part..."

5. Loving the sinner and hating the sin is a BULLSHIT RATIONALIZATION!
Kind of like saying, "I love Hitler. I just hate that whole Holocaust and world war that he created".

I think the polite word to describe that rationalization is disingenuous. I'm not polite. I'm calling bullshit.
