The Colorado Springs "ministry" only recently pumped over $500k into efforts to ban gay marriage in California. In addition to opposing gay and reproductive rights, Focus on the Family also promotes "abstinence only" programs and markets evangelical Christian books, DVDs and CDs espousing these views.
In one of Dobson's books, Bringing Up Boys, he discusses how to 'make your child not be gay:'
Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger. -- James Dobson
So...Jesus ministered to the poor, the meek and the downtrodden. His teachings were based on a love thy neighbor philosophy, right?
James Dobson calls himself a "minister." His main "focus," however, seems to be denying basic civil rights to a large group of people. Oh, and making sure boys can hammer a square peg into a square hole...among other the disturbingly ridiculous things mentioned above.
I'd be pissed that instead of following Jesus' lead, my boss was bleeding cash to inflict pain and suffering on my fellow man and woman.
Focus on the Family, my ass.
