James Dobson, PhD, is at it again. He is expressing his upset that schools are not teaching children that homosexuality is offensive to God. In other words, Dobson is upset that our nation is a secular nation and that schools are not being forced to teach the version of religion he happens to subscribe to.
In a news letter that went out on his website, Dobson whined that “children hear regularly that perversity is a civil right protected by the Constitution.” He goes on to say that “[Children] are being taught that God is irrelevant, discriminatory and unconstitutional. It has profound implications for their young minds … They can be twisted and warped by a society that glorifies wickedness.”
And goes on to say “Shame on the schools and churches that are teaching the young that sexual immorality is not an offense against the Almighty, whether it is homosexual, heterosexual or bisexual. Sin is sin, and our leaders used to call it by that name. Now children hear regularly that perversity is a civil right protected by the Constitution. But biblical truth has not changed. The wages of sin is still death, as it has always been.”
He, of course, goes on to plug his upcoming book and DVD series and ask for a donation saying “If you agree with this objective and can assist us financially here at the end of a very lean summer, we would certainly appreciate your support. Thank you so much for getting us through these past couple of months.”
It is quite amazing that Dobson has never quite caught on to the fact that his crass materialism and his turning of Christianity into a commodity is actually more offensive to God than homosexuality.
In fact, Christ says absolutely nothing about homosexuality, and the Bible is kind of skimpy on that subject; however, Christ did throw not only the money lenders, but pretty much everyone else who had set up shop inside the Temple to sell stuff associated with Judaism at the time. Christ expended more effort to combat the commercialization of Judaism and religion than he did going after homosexuality.
Dobson has gotten rich selling Christ in bits and bobs and pieces.
