Dobson Moves on to Federal Marriage Amendment: Now that Hes "Solved" Problems in Massachusetts
April 6, 2004
Now that he has solved the marriage problems in Massachusetts,
James Dobson has moved his emphasis to the Federal Marriage Amendment which
is opposed by every family organization except for him and his affiliates.
No one believes Dobson is going to get 2/3 of the Congress to approve his Amendment.
Thats good because if he is successful, it would allow civil unions as
happened in California after he took charge there. His minion, Matt Daniels
(former head of Massachusetts Family Institute), has said on the radio that
he does not oppose civil unions which are imposed by a state legislature and
not a court. But theyre still civil unions, just like in Vermont.
Dobson wrote in an email sent yesterday: This is an absolutely crucial
letter because the institution I created, Focus on the Family, to preserve --
the family -- is not only under attack as it has never been before: It is on
the verge of extinction.
Tyrannical judges, rogue public officials and homosexual activists are
working tirelessly to redefine the traditional family by extending marriage
rights to same-sex couples -- as recent news headlines out of the city of San
Francisco and the state of Massachusetts make painfully evident. The only way
to thwart their efforts, to ensure that the institutions of marriage and family
as God ordained them are protected for future generations, is to pass the Federal
Marriage Amendment (FMA).
This is terrible advice. That strategy will fail just as surely as his Massachusetts and California strategy has failed. But it will make millions in donations for Focus.
