Has James Dobson Surrendered?

According to this US News & World Report blog post, Dr. James Dobson ended a rant against "the utter evil that's coming out of the United States Congress (the hate crimes bill recently passed by the House)" with this stunning quote:

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.

So then what is it exactly that is stopping the White House from engaging in GLBT rights issues if one of the key opposition leaders is giving up?

  1. Thanks for the heads up. James Dobson can further claim that the "left" is as bad as he thinks it is, but maybe, just maybe, Americans are beginning to think on their own rather than listen to his misleadings and untruths.

  2. Dobson just sounds like he is depressed with all the progress that is being made in many states for equality... I'm sure he will come back around when he finds a weakness to sell for his own gain.
