Dobson on Gay Marriage

Evidently he thinks the campaign to outlaw gay marriage is just like the campaign to outlaw slavery. Gay marriage = slavery? What in the WORLD does he think goes on in those gay marriages, and is he jealous or something?

Evidently he thinks the campaign to outlaw gay marriage is just like the campaign to outlaw slavery. Gay marriage = slavery? What in the WORLD does he think goes on in those gay marriages, and is he jealous or something?

CNN’™s coverage includes a Dobson column, Media Matters’™ take shows Dobson’™s folly in full flower by examining the ravings on video, and here’™s a little protest letter you can sign that will be sent to Dobson.

A final aside. Mr. Dobson, gay marriages work about the same as mine does. We divide up household assignments, argue politely over who gets which section of the Sunday paper first, and work cooperatively (somewhat) in decorating, home repairs, and laundry (which I will move to the dryer in ten minutes, dear!). Marriage is about partnership, and marriage is mundane when it works, at least most of the time. Then there are those times when I am reminded that this particular marriage is the best thing in the world that will ever happen to me, that the argument over stretching exercises isn’™t worth it, etc. Marriage has that warmth, too, and from my experience with gays and lesbians in committed relationships, they feel that also.

What the HELL am I doing addressing remarks to James Dobson? Who the FUCK am I kidding? He just compared his bigoted and hate-filled campaign to the abolition movement. Sure, a stupider comparison might have been to compare his campaign to a platypus, but not a whole lot stupider. Man, it’™s too early in the morning!

Here in Philadelphia, because of Dobson’™s remarks, Lucretia Mott, God rest her soul, is spinning in the grave, along with her fellow leaders of the abolitionist movement. Today Quakers and the like, who were core abolitionsists, are also the core of Christians who work tirelessly for the rights of gay and lesbian citizens. No, Dobson’™s remarks are not only insulting black Americans, or abolitionists. Dobson’™s remarks are insulting true Christians who care for the aspirations and desires of their fellow citizens. .
