James Dobson and Mickey Mouse

My observation is that women are merely waiting for their husbands to assume leadership.

One of the problems with sex education... is that it also strips kids - especially girls - of their modesty to have every detail of anatomy, physiology and condom usage made explicit.

State Universities are breeding grounds, quite literally, for sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV), homosexual behavior, unwanted pregnancies, abortions, alcoholism, and drug abuse.
--James Dobson quotes from

Today Disneyland reopened after being closed for one day to redecorate for the 50th anniversary celebration. Speaking of Mickey Mouse, James Dobson is profiled in a straightforward and illuminating piece by Howard Fineman of Newsweek. Dobson is getting involved in politics after years of avoiding just that. He heads "Focus on the Family" and does a short radio broadcast every day heard by millions. His Ph.D. credentials give authority to his advice, delivered in a calm, appealing manner that conceals the sinister and hateful underpinning of his ideas.

I used to listen to Dobson’s daily homilies on the local radio news channel, and found some of the advice about children to be enlightening, almost soothing, from his fatherly tone. A lot of it was so general it would be hard to find anything controversial to argue about. These broadcasts belie the real message this guy wants to get across. Fineman says,

“…his message—corporal punishment is necessary, if carefully used, especially on boys; Christian faith is the ultimate support that all families need to survive—is one that fellow evangelicals find helpful and inspiring.

…He was venomous on the topic of the federal judiciary, which he sees largely as a coven of secular ayatollahs imposing a pro-abortion, pro-pornography, pro-gay-and-lesbian agenda on a Christian nation. He and his lieutenants have become deeply versed in the voting records and election prospects of the senators who will handle the judicial nominations.”

Next time you hear the quiet, calm, diplomatic voice of James Dobson being interviewed on TV, or his daily radio broadcast, listen to the words, and don’t be fooled.
