Dr. Dobson changes mind, compromises standard

Focus on the Family's Dr. James Dobson, once known for his refusal to vote for any politican who supports abortion and for his strong opposition against any effort that would legitimize homosexuality, has changed his mind.

On numerous occasions in the past, Dobson made his voting practice clear, stating that he would "never cast a vote for any politican who supports abortion." However, in a disturbing letter from Focus on the Family's Ross Marshall to a concerned church elder, he declared that Dr. Dobson "rightly or wrongly" has chosen to "compromise his own standard" because "God has led him in this direction." Dobson is blaming the political system and citing the fear he experienced over a John Kerry presidency as an example for the "necessity" to now vote in this manner.

In relationship to Dr. Dobson's increasingly questionable position on homosexuality, the antiChristian Denver Post recently reported:

"We were pleasantly surprised last week when Focus on the Family expressed its support for state legislation that would provide expanded legal benefits for same-sex couples and other non-traditional households."

The paper was responding to Dr. Dobson's endorsement of Colorado SB 166, a bill sponsored by state Senator Shawn Mitchell (R) that would grant homosexuals many of the same legal rights currently reserved to married couples. These rights would include property-sharing, decision-making powers over funerals and organ donations and potentially health-care policy benefits. If adopted, the legislation could force employers to cover the costs of the sex partners of homosexual men in company health plans.

In a press release issued by Dr. Paul Cameron of the Colorado-based Family Research Institute, Cameron challenges Dobson's support of what he is calling a "marriage lite" bill for homosexuals. The release stated in part:

"When the Denver Post, one of the most anti-family, anti-traditional newspapers on the planet, says it is 'pleasantly surprised' by Dobson's support for 'expanded legal benefits for same-sex couples,' you know that a betrayal has occurred."

The Denver Post editorial further cited:

"The legislation itself is a direct challenge to a civil unions proposal by Rep. Tom Plant, D-Nederland, that will ask voters to grant same-sex partners a menu of rights now only extended to married couples, such as inheriting property, making medical decisions on behalf of a partner and child support arrangements.

Jim Pfaff, state policy analyst for Focus, said Mitchell's bill is a "common-sense alternative" to the domestic partnership legislation. 'A domestic partnership bill based on sexual orientation is giving extra benefits to a class that has a high standard of living at the expense of other adults who are at or near the poverty level, and we believe that's discriminatory,' he said."

Dr. Dobson is traveling down a dangerous road by disregarding Biblical teachings. He is now compromising truth for voting convenience and is affirming abominable behavior by supporting "alternative" ungodly legislation. The belief and assertion by Dr. Dobson that it is necessitous to support a lesser evil to avoid a greater one conflicts with the Scriptural instruction of not doing evil that good may come (Romans 3:8). Compromising truth in the hope of advancing is not a Biblical strategy for defeating the enemy; it only causes a greater setback in the spiritual battle. We must pray and call upon Focus on the Family to return to God's Word.

"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." (Revelation 3:15-16)


Praise Jesus! The truth be known. It is obvious from this article, that regretfully, James Dobson is in league with the satanist homosexuals that would seduce our children and take over the world in order to turn it into their personal perverted playground. ...

James Dobson's efforts to opt for the least evil alternative is an unacceptable compromise of the Christian faith and he should no longer be seen as a 'true' representative of it.
