GLAAD Mad Over Dobson Hall of Fame Induction

The National Radio Hall of Fame didn’t hear gay activists’ calls.

You’ll recall that Truth Wins Out and others balked this month when news broke that anti-gay Evangelical leader James Dobson had been nominated for Hall of Fame entry for his long-running Focus On The Family show. Well, the deed was done last night and, surprise, the gays still aren’t happy. GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano released the following statement:

For 20 years James Dobson has used his expansive, well funded media platform to perpetuate false and misleading information which contribute to putting gay and lesbian families in harms way. GLAAD urges the media to scrutinize and shed light on Dobson’s record of inaccurate claims about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and include an in-depth analysis of his distorted and defamatory statements.

We won’t hold our breath.
