So upset with the Congress moving to protect GLBTs from hate crime violence, James Dobson is admitting defeat. For now. The Focus on the Family founder (and ex-president) has no more insight, is out of options, and has given up hope of ever turning America into the place of hate and exclusion he so wishes it to be.
Well, so long as Obama and the Democrats are running the show. And until that business comes to an end, Dobson wants his flock to just sit tight, twiddle their thumbs, and pray for salvation. Or an election year.
Dobson already admitted defeat in the culture wars. And now that the Matthew Shepard Act is en route to becoming law, he’s fears that it will lead to protections for “incest, necrophilia, pedophilia, and prostitution” are JUST TOO MUCH! He tells his followers:
I want to tell you up front that we’re not going to ask you to do anything, to make a phone call or to write a letter or anything.
There is nothing you can do at this time about what is taking place because there is simply no limit to what the left can do at this time. Anything they want, they get and so we can’t stop them.
We tried with [Health and Human Services Secretary] Kathleen Sebelius and sent thousands of phone calls and emails to the Senate and they didn’t pay any attention to it because they don’t have to. And so what you can do is pray, pray for this great nation… As I see it, there is no other answer. There’s no other answer, short term.
I’ve been on the air for 32 years and I’ve never seen a time quite like this. It just illustrates what happens when we don’t have what the Founding Fathers referred to as checks and balances, where the excesses of one party or one branch of government limit the reach of power hungry and self-serving people and keeps them form doing things that are harmful to the country. That’s the way the system was designed. We have 2 major political parties in this country, not one. And bipartisanship is a media creation that’s designed to promote one point of view instead of the debate that should occur. And that’s why media doesn’t talk about bipartisanship when conservatives are in power…
…[today] the radical left controls the executive branch through the president, and the Congress… and the Judiciary through the courts… now they control it all, including every department of government. As a result, the legislation that should shock the nation, if people were paying attention, is being rushed into law.
