Dr. James Dobson spoke out today on his radio show regarding the massacre of twenty small children and seven adults (including his own mother) last Friday. During his broadcast, he stated that the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school was due to God's judgment for abortion and gay marriage.
"Our country really does seem in complete disarray. I'm not talking politically, I'm not talking about the result of the November sixth election; I am saying that something has gone wrong in America and that we have turned our back on God.
"I mean millions of people have decided that God doesn't exist, or he's irrelevant to me and we have killed fifty-four million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition. Believe me, that is going to have consequences too.
"And a lot of these things are happening around us, and somebody is going to get mad at me for saying what I am about to say right now, but I am going to give you my honest opinion: I think we have turned our back on the Scripture and on God Almighty and I think he has allowed judgment to fall upon us. I think that's what's going on."
Dobson is the founder of Focus on the Family, of which he is no longer associated. He currently hosts the radio show "Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson." Dobson is no stranger to controversial points of view.
He joins the ranks of Bryan Fischer and Mike Huckabee, along with others, who have used the massacre at Sandy Hook to cast blame on unbelief or disobedience to God. This seems fairly close to the rhetoric coming out of the Westboro Baptist Church.
