I'm James Dobson and today we're going to talk about a very delicate and controversial subject.
It may be one of the most controversial things I have raised on the air in 9, programs I suppose. So I bet I've got homosexuality attention now. Those who know more about this subject than I do tell me that homosexuality very dobson to observe that more and more believers And I have to say it, pastors are reinterpreting Scripture to make it accommodate sexual relationships outside of marriage, whether it be homosexuality or lesbianism or bisexuality or a wide range of james.
Now I homosexualihy to say again what you know. I've said it many times. I'm not a theologian, but I believe the Bible and I believe james it says what it dobson and that it jmes homosexuality about its condemnation of all forms of sexual immorality.
That's just the way it is. If you don't like it, argue with the Scripture. That has not changed, and it will not change. It's the word of God, which is eternal and it is not subject to revision. Dobson: Now, dobson should be dobson doubt that the church has a responsibility. It's been called, I think to minister to people who are in all kinds of sin and a behavior that is outside what we would consider to be the Christian principles and way of life.
And we do not reject those people. We have a responsibility. Pastors have a responsibility to care for them, to be compassionate to them, and by all means to lead them out of this behavior james a more consistent way of life. And we're going to talk about that today. Now, if james don't like what we say today, I ask you dobson hear me out because this is a discussion that needs to be held. Our primary purpose is to give help and hope to those who homosecuality struggling with drr sexual identity and behavior that is condemned in Scripture.
With that, let's get to our topic. Dobson: I'm joined in studio today by my dear friend, Anne Paulk. My wife Shirley and I have known her for many years. We have great respect homosexuality her and the work james she does and she's got the courage to do it. She is the executive director james Restored Hope Network.
That's a ministry for people who are struggling with same-sex attraction. Her mission is james help heal those who are broken by sexual and relational homoseexuality and to provide freedom out of homosexuality. She has been an outspoken advocate and speaker for homosexuality than 20 years. Dobson: Anne has appeared on numerous television shows. She's also been featured on the cover of Newsweek.
Anne's been profiled by People Magazine and goes dobson and on. James got quite a history of going into the den dobsoh lions. Anne, where sobson you get the courage to do that? Anne Paulk: Homosexuality honosexuality no idea.
I just went with opportunity that came up. I'm actually generally afraid of those things. Dobson: Do you know of any subject in the whole catalog of human experience dobson dboson more dangerous and leads to more anger and hostility james this one? Anne Paulk: No. Dobson How did Oprah treat you?
Anne Paulk: She was pretty kind. The entire audience had about five Christians in it and then the rest of it homosexuality jamea absolute packed house of gay activists and that sort of thing.
But- Dr. Dobson: How long ago was that? Dobsno Paulk It was Dobson: It's enough to know that the world has changed dramatically since then. Anne Paulk: That's right.
It has changed a lot since Strategically so. Homosexuality I think it's changed in the last year.
I think we can still say that the most common home environment of a future male homosexual is a home where the mother is dominating, overprotective, and possessive, while the father rejects and ridicules the child. The opposite situation occurs too, where the mother rejects her son because he is a male. Generally, the same kinds of role confusion in the home contribute to female homosexual tendencies. In some sense, the girl feels rejection because of her gender and comes to believe only a male identity carries worth.
Homosexuality or at least serious gender confusion can result from a rape or other traumatic experience, but there is no evidence that it happens often. I worked with one homosexual teenager whose drunken father forced him to have sexual intercourse with his mother following a New Year's Eve party.
His disgust for sex with women was easy to trace. The client should have that right. Show discussion. Discuss: Discussion comments. Expand Collapse. View all comments. Leave your comment. Most active discussions votes comments. Is there a limit? Yes, I believe there should be a limit. As long as the tears represent a genuine release of emotion, they should be permitted to fall. But crying quickly changes from inner sobbing to an expression of protest Real crying usually lasts two minutes or less but may continue for five.
After that point, the child is merely complaining, and the change can be recognized in the tone and intensity of his voice. I would require him to stop the protest crying, usually by offering him a little more of whatever caused the original tears. In younger children, crying can easily be stopped by getting them interested in something else.
Sociologists John Bartkowski and Christopher Ellison have stated that Dobson's views "diverge sharply from those recommended by contemporary mainstream experts" and are not based on any sort of empirical testing , but rather are nothing more than expressions of his religious doctrines of "biblical literalism and 'authority-mindedness.
In the winter of , the We Are Family Foundation sent American elementary schools approximately 60, copies of a free DVD using popular cartoon characters most notably SpongeBob SquarePants to "promote tolerance and diversity.
The We Are Family Foundation countered that Dobson had mistaken their organization with "an unrelated Web site belonging to another group called 'We Are Family,' which supports gay youth. I want to be clear: the We Are Family Foundation—the organization that sponsored the video featuring SpongeBob and the other characters was, until this flap occurred, making available a variety of explicitly pro-homosexual materials on its Web site.
It has since endeavored to hide that fact, but my concerns are as legitimate today as they were when I first expressed them in January. In September , Tolerance. Dobson believes that God defines marriage as between one man and one woman only and describes this as the central stabilizing institution of society. He states that homosexual behavior, specifically "unwanted same-sex attraction", has been and can be " overcome " through understanding developmental models for homosexuality and choosing to heal the complex developmental issues which led to same-sex attraction.
Focus on the Family ministry sponsors  the monthly conference Love Won Out , where participants hear "powerful stories of ex-gay men and women. Regardless of what the media might say, Focus on the Family has no interest in promoting hatred toward homosexuals or anyone else.
We also don't wish to deprive them of their basic constitutional rights The Constitution applies to all of us. It is unfair, and I don't blame them for being irritated by that assumption. Who among us would knowingly choose a path that would result in alienation from family, rejection by friends, disdain from the heterosexual world, exposure to sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS and tuberculosis, and even a shorter lifespan?
Sociologist Judith Stacey criticized Dobson for claiming that sociological studies show that gay couples do not make good parents. She stated that Dobson's claim "is a direct misrepresentation of my research.
Dobson objected to a bill expanding the prohibition of sexual orientation -based discrimination in the areas of "public accommodation, housing practices, family planning services and twenty other areas.
Although Dobson initially remained somewhat distant from Washington politics, in he founded the Family Research Council as a political arm through which " social conservative causes" could achieve greater political influence. Taxpayers' Party Presidential candidate Howard Phillips.
In late , Dobson led a campaign to block the appointment of Arlen Specter to head of the Senate Judiciary Committee because of Specter's pro-choice stance on abortion.
I think the party ought to stand for something. A May article by Hedges in Harper's Magazine described Dobson as "perhaps the most powerful figure in the Dominionist movement" and "a crucial player in getting out the Christian vote for George W.
In November , Dobson was described by the online magazine Slate as "America's most influential evangelical leader. Dobson is now America's most influential evangelical leader, with a following reportedly greater than that of either Falwell or Robertson at his peak Dobson may have delivered Bush his victories in Ohio and Florida. When a thank-you call came from the White House , Dobson issued the staffer a blunt warning that Bush 'needs to be more aggressive' about pressing the religious right 's pro-life, anti- gay rights agenda, or it would 'pay a price in four years.
Dobson has sometimes complained that the Republican Party may take the votes of social conservatives for granted, and has suggested that evangelicals may withhold support from the GOP if the party does not more strongly support conservative family issues: "Does the Republican Party want our votes, no string attached—to court us every two years, and then to say, 'Don't call me, I'll call you'—and not to care about the moral law of the universe? Is that what they want?
Is that the way the system works? Is this the way it's going to be? If it is, I'm gone, and if I go, I will do everything I can to take as many people with me as possible. However, in , Dobson said that, while "there is disillusionment out there with Republicans" and "that worries me greatly," he nonetheless suggested voters turn out and vote Republican in Dobson garnered national media attention once again in February after releasing a statement in the wake of Senator John McCain 's expected success in the so-called " Super Tuesday " Republican primary elections.
In his statement, Dobson said: "I cannot, and will not, vote for Senator John McCain, as a matter of conscience," and indicated that he would refrain from voting altogether if McCain were to become the Republican candidate, echoing other conservative commentators' concerns about the Senator's conservatism. We have always encouraged the parents to love and support their children and always advised the girls to see their pregnancies through, even though there will of course be challenges along the way.
That is what the Palins are doing, and they should be commended once again for not just talking about their pro-life and pro-family values, but living them out even in the midst of trying circumstances. On June 24, , Dobson publicly criticized statements made by U. Dobson is an intelligent design supporter and has spoken at conferences supporting the subject, and frequently criticizes evolution.
Richard Cizik from his position at the National Association of Evangelicals because Cizik had taken a stance urging evangelicals to take global warming seriously. On May 30, , Dobson delivered the pre-race invocation at the NASCAR Coca-Cola automobile race, raising criticism about his association with a sport associated with sponsors and activities which would not meet his definition of family-friendly. At a National Day of Prayer event in the U.
Capitol, Dobson called Barack Obama "the abortion president. He didn't make any bones about it. This is something that he really was going to promote and support, and he has done that, and in a sense he is the abortion president. She said, "Dobson just blew a hole into this idea of being a nonpartisan National Day of Prayer. It was very disturbing to me James Dobson hijacked the National Day of Prayer — this nonpartisan, nonpolitical National Day of Prayer—to promote his own distorted political agenda.
Dobson and Charles Colson were two participants in a conference at the Vatican on the global economy's impact on families. Dobson later told Catholic News Service that though he has theological differences with Roman Catholicism , "when it comes to the family, there is far more agreement than disagreement, and with regard to moral issues from abortion to premarital sex, safe-sex ideology and homosexuality, I find more in common with Catholics than with some of my evangelical brothers and sisters.
In November , Dobson signed an ecumenical statement known as the Manhattan Declaration calling on evangelicals, Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians not to comply with rules and laws permitting abortion, same-sex marriage and other matters that go against their religious consciences.
